A 1959 classic 'hard' science-fiction novel by renowned Cambridge astronomer and cosmologist Fred Hoyle. Tracks the progress of a giant black cloud that comes towards Earth and sits in front of the sun, causing widespread panic and death. A select group of scientists and astronomers - including the dignified Astronomer Royal, the pipe smoking Dr Marlowe and the maverick, eccentric Professor Kingsly - engage in a mad race to understand and communicate with the cloud, battling against trigger happy politicians. In the pacy, engaging style of John Wyndham and John Christopher, with plenty of hard science thrown in to add to the chillingly credible premise (he manages to foretell Artificial Intelligence, Optical Character Recognition and Text-to-Speech converters), Hoyle carries you breathlessly through to its thrilling end.

Long ago, in a place where wizards and castles and kings were found, Brian was just a simple cobbler, making gloves and boots and shoes for his neighbors. In our story, and in his own words, Brian tells of the adventure that started with an unexpected visit from the king. The king needed Brian to help rescue his son, Prince Randrim, from the wizard, Saukon. Brian, accompanied by a very small wizard, set out to find the prince. Along their way they met a cave full of skeletons, a cursed princess, an evil tyrant, and saved a nation and the prince. Read his words to learn how he accomplished all this with a smile on his face (well, sometimes) and a song in his heart when he met the Black Cloud of Kandar.

Hellboy is called to Amalfi, Italy, by Franca, a young member of the Esposito family. She fears that a dark curse on her family is about to claim her cousin as its next victim. Hellboy makes his way to their large home... and he encounters a flaming demona fire wolfwhich he successfully fights off. Hellboy and Franca make their way to Pompeii, where Franca remembers seeing an image of the fire wolf whilst on an archaeological dig. Hellboy unearths the shriveled corpse of a demon hunter who was buried during the AD 79 eruption of Vesuvius, and it tells him of the fire demon that escaped the grip of the volcano... leading to that devastating eruption. As the volcano rumbles again, with a new thirst for human blood, an eruption even more devastating than that historical catastrophe looks very, very close "Tim Lebbon is an immense talent and he's become a new favorite. He has a style and approach unique to the genre." —Joe R. Lansdale
