Millions of years before the emergence of humankind, the great dragon civilization dominated this world. It left few traces behind save legends and one mighty structure: Dragonhenge. The dragons were profound storytellers, and collected here are tales from their oral mythology. Hugo Award winners pool their talents in Dragonhenge, an illustrated collection of eight tales and a Proem that celebrate the ancient dragon civilization. Publishers Weekly.

The Star Dragons

The Dragons are back! Award winning authors John Grant and Bob Eggleton continue the adventure they began in the popular Dragonhenge. Return to the dragon world. Following on the huge success of Dragonhenge, this stunningly illustrated adventure, written by two multiple award winning, leading luminaries in the science fiction universe, takes you on a magical journey through the Cosmos and far, far into the future, many billions of years after humankind and all other forms of life have gone. In this time, the Universe itself is beginning to fall towards its death, and only the Stardragons are left to move across the infinite tracts of space on an epic journey. Readers of all ages, art connoisseurs, and dragon enthusiasts will enter in the magic and be entranced. BOB EGGLETON is a recipient of six Hugo Awards as Best Professional Artist and one as co creator with Nigel Suckling of the book Greetings from Earth.

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

This is a spine chilling retelling of Robert Louis Stevenson”s classic horror story of a man with a spli t personality. Colour artwork and an abundance of line drawi ngs recreate the strange events in the fog shrouded Victoria n streets. ‘


HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best loved, essential classics. ‘It was already one in the morning; the rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burnt out, when, by the glimmer of the half extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open!’ Written when Mary Shelley was only nineteen years old, this chilling tale of a young scientist’s desire to create life still resonates today. Victor Frankenstein‘s monster is stitched together from the stolen limbs of the dead, and the result is a grotesque being who, rejected by his maker, sets out on a journey to reek his revenge. In the most famous gothic horror story ever told, Shelley confronts the limitations of science, the nature of human cruelty and the pathway to forgiveness with rich language and evocative imagery.


Guts: A Comedy of Manners by David Langford and John Grant is a raucously tasteless spoof of horror novels, first written in the late 80s and accepted by a UK publisher, which later changed its mind.
