Max Brooks travels to all corners of the planet interviewing the men, women, and children that came face-to-face with the undead in the Zombie War, our first truly global war. World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War documents these brutally honest and vivid experiences, testing the courage of the reader as we are forced to consider how close humanity can come to extinction. As we battle forces never before conceived as possible, this novel is a testament to the resiliance of the human spirit and our will to survive. ~ Reviewed by Kim Potter

The Changeling/Faerie world is with us still! This is the story of the inhabitants of modern day Faerie, and how their influence and the existence of a parallel world accounts for some of our deepest and darkest secrets. Cleverly and thoughtfully written and very engaging, the title of this book is taken from a much loved poem by William Butler Yeats. ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank

A hilarious first novel that will appeal to anyone with even a passing interest in comics. The beauty of the book is that it comes across as a straight faced memoir whose characters just happen to wear capes. It tells the story of Dr Impossible, a super-villain, and the super-heroes assigned to catch him. I was hooked from the first page where Dr Impossible is mulling over the question why does being one of the smartest people in the world automatically mean you have to be evil and end up in jail. ~ Reviewed by Ben Parker

Wonderful stories by one of my favorite fantasy writers, including, (but not limited to) a story which is the sequel to the author's greatest achievement, The Last Unicorn. There is something about the mixture of humor and pathos in his writing, touching those archetypal chords which make for great fables, myths and fantasy writing. Each story brings its own special kind of poignancy and truth. ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank
