The vast road network of Honce, completed a decade before, had brought great optimism to the people of the land. Commerce could travel more freely and so could armies, and those armies, it was hoped, would rid the land at long last of the vicious, bloody cap dwarfs and goblins. For the first time, the many individual kingdoms, the holdings of Honce, would be brought closer together, perhaps even united. For the last few years, those promises had become a nightmare to the folk, as two powerful lairds fought for supremacy of a hoped-for united kingdom. Bransen Garibond, the Highwayman, held little real interest in that fight. To him the warring lairds were two sides of the same coin. Whichever side won, the outcome for the people of Honce would be the same, Bransen believed. A journey north, however, taught Bransen that his views were simplistic at best, and that some things--like honor and true friendship-- might truly matter. In The Dame, the third volume in R.A. Salvatore's Saga of the First King series, Bransen's road becomes a quest for the truth, of Honce and of himself, a quest to put right over wrong. That path is fraught with confusion and fraud, and a purposeful blurring of morality by those who would seek to use the Highwayman's extraordinary battle skills and popularity among the commonfolk for their own nefarious ends.

Donald E. Westlake is one of the greats of crime fiction. Under the pseudonym Richard Stark, he wrote twenty-four fast-paced, hardboiled novels featuring Parker, a shrewd career criminal with a talent for heists. Using the same nom de plume, Westlake also completed a separate series in the Parker universe, starring Alan Grofield, an occasional colleague of Parker. While he shares events and characters with several Parker novels, Grofield is less calculating and more hot-blooded than Parker; think fewer guns, more dames. Not that there isn’t violence and adventure aplenty. . The Dame finds Grofield in Puerto Rico protecting a rich, demanding woman in her isolated jungle villa, and reluctantly assuming the role of detective. A rare Westlake take on a whodunit, The Dame features a cast of colorful characters and a suspenseful—and memorable—climax. With a new foreword by Sarah Weinman that situates the Grofield series within Westlake’s work as a whole, this novel is an exciting addition to any crime fiction fan’s library.

In The Bear, the war of Honce drags on, and Bransen rejoins his solo quest to extricate himself from the selfish goals of all combatants. But in an odd twist of fate and crossed loyalties, Bransen sees in his old nemesis, Bannagran—the Bear of Honce and the man who slew his adoptive father—a darker image of his own heart. Allies and battle lines become tangled, motives indistinguishable as old friends become enemies, and old enemies become allies.

Excerpt from The Dame of Ossipee: A Poem There still the stage-coach holds its sway, With all its comforts, all its ills, And rumbles down at early day To drag its burden through the hills The mountain trunks, piled mountain high The throng that round the ladder meet, Who pass the Scripture warning by, And scramble for the highest seat. The sandy highway, fringed with green, By Sparkling water-courses led Along some ancient river's bed, With wealth of intervale between Winds upward toward the mountain range, As journeys one in morning dream, And bridges many a murmuring stream.

The legendary Frank Miller returns with the second volume in the Sin City series of crime / mystery thrillers. With his trademark pitch-black dialogue, graphic action sequences and impossibly cool noirish flourishes, this is an indispensable follow-up. This new hardback edition is released to coincide with a major cinema adaptation, released in the UK in August 2014 and starring Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This promises to be one of the biggest films of the year and should generate enormous interest in the original material.
