Well, U.S. fans can rejoice, as the book will be on sale again here in the U.S. in just a few short weeks!

THE LONG WAY TO A SMALL, ANGRY PLANET has been praised as “a joyous, optimistic space opera…that will restore your faith in science fiction (specifically) and humanity (in general)” by Tor.com.

Full of excitement, adventure, and mishaps, THE LONG WAY is impossible to put down.

KILLING PRETTY is on sale today and more!

  • Posted by Dana Trombley on Jul 28 2015

Slim fans rejoice! The seventh installment of Richard Kadrey’s bestselling Sandman Slim Series, KILLING PRETTY, is here! 

Sandman Slim investigates Death’s death in this hip, propulsive urban fantasy through a phantasmagoric LA rife with murder, mayhem, and magic.

James Stark has met his share of demons and angels, on earth and beyond. Now, he’s come face to face with the one entity few care to meet: Death.

Someone has tried to kill Death—ripping the heart right out of him—or rather the body he’s inhabiting. Death needs Sandman Slim’s help: he believes anyone who can beat Lucifer and the old gods at their own game is the only one who can solve his murder.

Stark follows a sordid trail deep into LA’s subterranean world, from vampire-infested nightclubs to talent agencies specializing in mad ghosts, from Weimar Republic mystical societies to sleazy supernatural underground fight and sex clubs. Along the way he meets a mysterious girl—distinguished by a pair of graveyard eyes—as badass as Slim: she happens to be the only person who ever outwitted Death. But escaping her demise has had dire consequences for the rest of the world . . . and a few others.

For years, Slim has been fighting cosmic forces bent on destroying Heaven, Hell, and Earth. This time, the battle is right here on the gritty streets of the City of Angels, where a very clever, very ballsy killer lies in wait.

 Also new from HarperVoyager Impulse: THE DROWNING GOD by James Kendly! 

To uncover modern Japan’s darkest, deadliest secret, one man must face a living nightmare from his childhood

Few villagers are happy when Detective Tohru Takuda returns to his hometown to investigate a string of suspicious disappearances. Even the local police chief tries to shut him out from the case. For behind the conspiracy lurks a monstrous living relic of Japan’s pagan history: the Kappa. Protected long ago by a horrible pact with local farmers—and now by coldly calculating corporate interests—the Kappa drains the valley’s lifeblood, one villager at a time.

As the body count rises, Takuda must try to end the Drowning God’s centuries-long reign of terror, and failure means death…or worse.

MERCURY RETROGRADE Cover Reveal

  • Posted by Dana Trombley on Jul 27 2015

We’re thrilled to announce that Laura Bickle’s contemporary fantasy Dark Alchemy series will continue this fall.  Petra and Sig are at it again, and this time, they’re both on the cover!  If you love urban fantasy, don’t miss this series.  Scroll down for a peek at the fabulous cover art for MERCURY RETROGRADE, on sale 10/27/15.

 

Something venomous has come to Temperance…

It’s been two months since Petra Dee and her coyote sidekick Sig faced off against Temperance’s resident alchemist, but things are far from quiet. When an Internet video of a massive snake in the backcountry of Yellowstone goes viral, a chase for the mythical basilisk is on. Monster hunters swarm into the area, and never one to pass up the promise of discovery, Petra joins in the search.

Among the newcomers is a snake cult on wheels – the biker gang Sisters of Serpens. Unlike some, the Sisters don’t want to kill the basilisk – they want to worship it. But things get complicated when the basilisk develops a taste for human flesh that rivals the Sisters’ own murderous skills.

Meanwhile, the alchemical tree of life is dying, and the undead Hanged Men of Temperance who depend on it know the basilisk may be their last chance for survival.

With time running out for everyone around her, Petra will be forced to decide who survives and who she must leave behind in this action-packed sequel to Dark Alchemy.

DepartureHC_mech.R1-2.jpg

And we are SO excited to welcome A.G. to Harper Voyager! His self-published works, which include The Origin Mystery trilogy, have sold over a million copies and are beloved by so many SFF readers. “A.G. Riddle has been on my radar ever since I first picked up his novel The Atlantis Gene,”Voyager’s executive editor, David Pomerico says, “and when an opportunity came to partner with not only him, but my colleagues to make DEPARTURE a truly global endeavor, I leapt at the chance. This is the kind of book you will tear through, with two protagonists—Nick and Harper—that you will connect with right away. Riddle is an amazing talent.”

About DEPARTURE

En route to London from New York, Flight 305 suddenly loses power and crash-lands in the English countryside, plunging a group of strangers into a mysterious adventure that will have repercussions for all of humankind. Struggling to stay alive, the survivors soon realize that the world they’ve crashed in is very different from the one they left. But where are they? Why are they here? And how will they get back home? Five passengers seem to hold clues about what’s really going on: writer Harper Lane, venture capitalist Nick Stone, German genetic researcher Sabrina Schröder, computer scientist Yul Tan, and Grayson Shaw, the son of a billionaire philanthropist. As more facts about the crash emerge, it becomes clear that some in this group know more than they’re letting on-answers that will lead Harper and Nick to uncover a far-reaching conspiracy involving their own lives. As they begin to piece together the truth, they discover they have the power to change the future and the past-to save our world . . . or end it.
