Elite Dangerous: Wanted

By Gavin Deas

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Set in the world of ELITE: DANGEROUS, established Gollancz authors Stephen Deas and Gavin Smith give us a pulse-pounding tale of space piracy and law enforcement!

Set in the world of bestselling computer game ELITE, and launched to tie in with the latest version, ELITE: DANGEROUS - a game almost 20 years in the making. One of three very distinct - but subtly linked - novels written by major authors who are fans of the game, this novel will be a must-buy not only for the 25,000+ people who funded the new game on kickstarter, but also for all of those fans of the original game.

When a routine bit of piracy goes wrong, the crew of the Song of Stone realise that there's a bounty hunter on their tail. One who might, finally, be able to outclass them. The Dragon Queen is feared across space, and for good reason. But even the bounty hunter doesn't realise what she's been hired to do. Or what is in the container she's been sent to retrieve.

And she's not the only hunter in the game...

Gavin Deas is the pseudonym used by Stephen Deas and Gavin Smith when writing together.

Biographical Notes

Stephen Deas was born in 1968. He once set fire to Wales. Well one bit of Wales. Twice. When not burning principalities, he played too much D&D. Despite this he managed to study theoretical physics at Cambridge, get a job at BAE, marry and have two children. He now lives in Essex. With THE ADAMANTINE PALACE he plans to return to his first love: that of setting fire to things.

Gavin Smith lives in Leicester. With a degree in media production and an MA in Medieval History he is the worst person in the world to watch a historical movie with. He may be the best person to write the next book you read if you like your SF cranked up to maximum.

Five Days of Fog

Anna Freeman
Authors:
Anna Freeman

'My mum always said, a fistful of rings is as good as a knuckleduster' As the Great Smog falls over London in 1952, Florrie Palmer has a choice to make. Will she stay with the Cutters, a gang of female criminals who have terrorized London for years and are led by her own mother? Or leave it all behind to make a safer, duller life with the man she loves? And what will she do if she's too crooked to go straight, and too good to go bad? Over the next five days, Florrie will have to find her own path and the courage to stumble along it - in a fog so thick that she can't see her own feet. Following the last days of a crumbling female gang in post-war London, this is a story of family, of love, of finding your way, and of deciphering a route through the greyest areas of morality.

Impossible Owls

Brian Phillips
Authors:
Brian Phillips

In Impossible Owls, we follow Brian Phillips on the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in Alaska, which provides the opportunity for him to write with wit and insight about the incredible race itself, but also about adventure, freedom and journeys to the end of the map. He takes us into the heart of contemporary sumo wrestling, but we also learn about Japan, past and present, as well as his thoughts on depression and ritual suicide. There are pieces on Route 66 and alien abduction, a genius Russian animator, small-town America and The X-files, Queen Elizabeth and the Duchess of Cambridge, the father of conservation in India and man-eating tigers, and a moving essay that melds memoir and an unconventional love story.Phillips brings a unique voice to his subjects, providing a fresh perspective on the world around us. There is humour and pathos and wonderful observation in this eclectic collection, which showcases the incredible talent, curiosity and wide-ranging interests of one of the foremost exponents of the New Journalism working today.

Dracula

Bram Stoker, Bryan Hitch
Contributors:
Bram Stoker, Bryan Hitch

'The mouth was redder than ever, for on the lips were gouts of fresh blood, which trickled from the corners of the mouth and ran over the chin and neck - It seemed as if the whole awful creature were simply gorged with blood; he lay like a filthy leech, exhausted with his repletion.'When Jonathan Harker visits Transylvania to help Count Dracula purchase a London house he is disturbed by the horrifying discoveries he makes in his client's castle. But worse, Harker's actions introduce Dracula to London. Soon afterwards, the Count embarks on a reign of seduction and terror. And all, it seems, who encounter the charismatic Eastern European aristocrat - a succession of madmen, physicians and beautiful women - are never seen in daylight again...Bram Stoker's DRACULA has inspired countless movies, books, and plays since it's first publication in 1897. Few, if any, have been fully faithful to Stoker's original, best-selling novel of mystery and horror, love and death, sin and redemption. But in DRACULA, Stoker created a new word for terror, a new myth to feed our nightmares, and a character who will outlive us all.
