The Honored Matres a violent offshoot of the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood have destroyed Arrakis, of Dune, searing all life from the desert planet. Sweeping across the galaxy, they relentlessly hunt down and destroy every Bene Gesserit stronghold they can find, always searching for Chapterhoursem the most powerful of all Bene Gesserit worlds. Meanwhile, the Sisterhood, led by Mother Superior Odrade, slowly transforms the green planet into a scorching desert in order to grow melange, the psychotropic spice they need for their existance. Through billions of sisters have died on worlds the Honored Matres control, Odrade has a plan for the Bene Gesserit’s ultimate survival. One weapon in her arsenal is the wormrider Sheeana, an Atreides descendant whom Odrade is secretly grooming as the sacred heart of a religious cult and who may be the key to controlling the desert ecology of Chapterhouse. Another is the ghola child or clone, of the military mastermind Miles Teg, who demonstrates the uncanny speed of the Honored Matres themselves. Most valuable of all may be the captive Honored Matre Murbella. During the Scattering of humanity through the galaxy, the dark sisterhood learned the secret of sexual addiction. Odrade has used the technique to bond Murbella to the ghola of Duncan Idaho, whose suspected Mentat abilities would make him another Kwizatz Haderach, as dangerously uncontrollable as Paul Muad’Dib. But the Bene Gesserit are running out of time, for the enemy is drawing closer, and a supreme sacrifice must be made…

House Atreides (With: Brian Herbert)

THE EPIC PREQUEL TO DUNE’DUNE: HOUSE ATREIDES is a terrific prequel, but it is also a first rate adventure on its own. Frank Herbert would surely be delighted and proud of this continuation of his vision.’ Dean KoontzFrank Herbert’s Dune chronicles became an enduring classic and the most popular science fiction series of all time. Working from recently discovered files left by his father, Brian Herbert and best selling novelist Kevin J. Anderson bring us Dune: House Atreides, the prequel, which captures all the complexity and grand themes of the original work while weaving a new tapestry of great passion and momentous destiny into a saga that expands the tale written by Frank Herbert more than thirty years ago. Complex, brilliant, and prophetic, Frank Herbert’s award winning Dune chronicles captured the imaginations of millions of readers worldwide and transformed their perception of what the future could be. By his death in 1986, Frank Herbert had completed six novels in the Dune series. But much of his vision vast, sprawling, and multilayered remained unwritten. Now, working from recently discovered files left by his father, Brian Herbert and bestselling novelist Kevin J. Anderson collaborate on a new novel, the first volume in the prequel to Dune where we step onto planet Arrakis…
decades before Dune’s hero, Paul Atreides, walks its sands. Beginning nearly four decades before Dune, House Atreides introduces pivotal characters, alliances, base treacheries, and bright hopes that form the foundation of Dune. On the planet Arrakis, an aging tyrant sits on the Golden Lion Throne and rules all of the known universe, while his son grows dangerously impatient for the crown. A quasi religious order of black robed women move their secret breeding program one momentous step closer to creating a god child they call the Kwisatz Haderach. And a minor family among the nobility, House Atreides, chooses a course of honor that will bring it to destruction at the hands of its mortal enemy, House Harkonnen or take it to new heights of power. Here is the rich and complex world that Frank Herbert created in his classic series, in the time leading up to the momentous events of Dune. As Emperor Elrood’s son Shaddam plots a subtle regicide, young Leto Atreides leaves his lush, water rich planet for a year’s education on the mechanized world of Ix; a planetologist named Pardot Kynes is dispatched by the Emperor to the desert planet Arrakis, or Dune, to discover the secrets of the addictive spice known as melange; and the eight year old slave Duncan Idaho is hunted by his cruel masters in a terrifying game from which he vows escape and vengeance. But none can envision the fate in store for them: one that will make them renegades and shapers of history. Covering the decade when Shaddam wins his throne, the teenager Leo Atreides becomes unexpectedly the rule of House Atreides, and Pardot Kynes uncovers one of the planet Dune’s greatest secrets, House Atreides stands next to Dune in its power and scope. While this new novel solves some of Dune’s most baffling mysteries, it presents new puzzles springing from the sands where one day Paul Muad’Dib Atreides will walk. But now, in the years before Paul’s birth, an unforgettable new epic begins. Fans of the Dune chronicles will relish the opportunity to return to the rich and exotic universe created by Frank Herbert, while new readers will be introduced to an incomparable imagination a future where the fate of the entire cosmos is at stake. The Story Behind Dune: House Atreidesby Brian HerbertWhen my father first sat down with me to go over one of my manuscripts, he told me that he couldn’t teach me how to write; instead, he would teach me what he called ‘the care and feeding of editors’: how to make manuscripts look presentable so that they wouldn’t be tossed into a slush pile, unread. He then proceeded to teach me how to write. I remember many instances when we would brainstorm ideas and dissect my own novel manuscripts. He taught me how to develop worlds, to create characters, to invent action…
and to describe all of it. We collaborated on the novel Man of Two Worlds, Frank Herbert’s last published work, and even talked about working together on a new Dune novel, but we’d set no date, had established no specific details or direction. That novel was not to be. When my father died in 1986, he left several projects unfinished. For years there were rumors that I would write another novel set in my father’s Dune universe, a sequel to the sixth book in the series, Chapterhouse: Dune. Prominent writers approached me with offers of collaboration, but in tossing ideas around with them I couldn’t visualize the project coming to fruition. They were excellent writers, but in combination with them I didn’t feel the necessary synergy for such a monumental task. Along with Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings and a handful of other works, Dune stood as one of the greatest creative achievements of all time, and arguably the greatest example of science fiction world building in the history of literature. For the sake of my father’s legacy, I could not select the wrong person. It wasn’t until I began conversation with Kevin J. Anderson, a critically acclaimed and internationally best selling author, that I found someone whose enthusiasm and passion for the Dune universe match my own. Much of Kevin’s writing had been influenced heavily by the work of Frank Herbert. I read everything I could get my hands on that Kevin had written, and did more checking on him. It soon became clear that he was a brilliant writer and that his reputation was sterling. We hit it off immediately, both on a personal and professional level; new story ideas fairly exploded from our minds and together, we found the energy to tackle such a massive project. Frank Herbert had left behind literally thousands of pages of notes, ideas, and sketches. Of all the possible Dune stories we could tell, Kevin and I chose to concentrate on an immediate prequel, to go back to the heart of Dune’s readership, the core characters and situations that had made this the best selling science fiction novel of all time: The love story of Duke Leto and Lady Jessica; their first battle with Baron Harkonnen; the quest of the planetologist Kynes, sent to the desert world of Dune to investigate the precious spice and the sandworms and the Fremen…
and the power hungry Crown Prince Shaddam, who would do anything to secure the Imperial throne. The Dune universe is a vast canvas, with ample opportunity for many stories, but we have chosen to start here, featuring the characters with whom all Dune fans are familiar. Dune: House Atreides is a personal story that means a great deal to us; we hope booksellers and readers alike will feel the same way. Signed,Brian Herbert

House Harkonnen (With: Brian Herbert)

Dune: House Harkonnen continues t he unforgettable saga begun in Dune: House Atreides, as a vast array of rich and complex figures strives to shape a sprawling universe of mystery and vivid universe revealed in the thrilling pages of Frank Herbert’s Dune. Dune: House HarkonnenAt last Shaddam sits on the Golden Lion Throne, his precarious position as ruler of the Known Universe dependent on producing a male heir. But his leadership is further threatened by the ambitious Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, whose insatiable thirst for dominance leads him to plot against some of t he most powerful forced in the Imperium, hoping to elevate his own ruthless House to unprecedented heights of power. His primary targets: House Atreides and the mysterious Bene Gasserit Sisterhood. The Sisterhood are unaware of this threat as they prepare to culminate the work of centuries in the creation of a god child who will sweep away emperors, houses, and history itself in a terrifying new order of religious tyranny.

House Corrino (With: Brian Herbert)

The triumphant conclusion to the blockbuster trilogy that made science fiction history!In Dune: House Corrino Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson bring us the magnificent final chapter in the unforgettable saga begun in Dune: House Atreides and continued in Dune: House Harkonnen. Here nobles and commoners, soldiers and slaves, wives and courtesans shape the amazing destiny of a tumultuous universe. An epic saga of love and war, crime and politics, religion and revolution, this magnificent novel is a fitting conclusion to a great science fiction trilogy…
and an invaluable addition to the thrilling world of Frank Herbert’s immortal Dune. Dune: House CorrinoFearful of losing his precarious hold on the Golden Lion Throne, Shaddam IV, Emperor of a Million Worlds, has devised a radical scheme to develop an alternative to melange, the addictive spice that binds the Imperium together and that can be found only on the desert world of Dune. In subterranean labs on the machine planet Ix, cruel Tleilaxu overlords use slaves and prisoners as part of a horrific plan to manufacture a synthetic form of melange known as amal. If amal can supplant the spice from Dune, it will give Shaddam what he seeks: absolute power. But Duke Leto Atreides, grief stricken yet unbowed by the tragic death of his son Victor, determined to restore the honor and prestige of his House, has his own plans for Ix. He will free the Ixians from their oppressive conquerors and restore his friend Prince Rhombur, injured scion of the disgraced House Vernius, to his rightful place as Ixian ruler. It is a bold and risky venture, for House Atreides has limited military resources and many ruthless enemies, including the sadistic Baron Harkonnen, despotic master of Dune. Meanwhile, Duke Leto s consort, the beautiful Lady Jessica, obeying the orders of her superiors in the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood, has conceived a child that the Sisterhood intends to be the penultimate step in the creation of an all powerful being. Yet what the Sisterhood doesn t know is that the child Jessica is carrying is not the girl they are expecting, but a boy. Jessica s act of disobedience is an act of love her attempt to provide her Duke with a male heir to House Atreides but an act that, when discovered, could kill both mother and baby. Like the Bene Gesserit, Shaddam Corrino is also concerned with making a plan for the future securing his legacy. Blinded by his need for power, the Emperor will launch a plot against Dune, the only natural source of true spice. If he succeeds, his madness will result in a cataclysmic tragedy not even he foresees: the end of space travel, the Imperium, and civilization itself. With Duke Leto and other renegades and revolutionaries fighting to stem the tide of darkness that threatens to engulf their universe, the stage is set for a showdown unlike any seen before. From the Hardcover edition.

The Butlerian Jihad (With: Brian Herbert)

Frank Herbert’s Dune series is one of the grandest epics in the annals of imaginative literature. Selling millions of copies worldwide, it is science fiction’s answer to The Lord of the Rings, a brilliantly imaginative epic of high adventure, unforgettable characters, and immense scope. Decades after Herbert’s original novels, the Dune saga was continued by Frank Herbert’s son, Brian Herbert, an acclaimed SF novelist in his own right, in collaboration with Kevin J. Anderson. Their New York Times bestselling trilogy, Dune: House Atreides, Dune: House Harkonnen, and Dune: House Corrino, formed a prequel to the classic Herbert series that was acclaimed by reviewers and readers alike. Now Herbert and Anderson, working from Frank Herbert’s own notes, reveal a pivotal epoch in the history of the Dune universe, the chapter of the saga most eagerly anticipated by readers: The Butlerian Jihad. Throughout the Dune novels, Frank Herbert frequently referred to the long ago war in which humans wrested their freedom from ‘thinking machines.’ Now, in Dune: Butlerian Jihad, Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson bring to life the story of that war, a tale previously seen only in tantalizing hints and clues. Finally, we see how Serena Butler’s passionate grief ignites the war that will liberate humans from their machine masters. We learn the circumstances of the betrayal that made mortal enemies of House Atreides and House Harkonnen; and we experience the Battle of Corrin that created a galactic empire that lasted until the reign of Emperor Shaddam IV. Herein are the foundations of the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood, the Suk Doctors, the Order of Mentats, and the mysteriously altered Navigators of the Spacing Guild. Here is the amazing tale of the Zensunni Wanderers, who escape bondage to flee to the desert world where they will declare themselves the Free Men of Dune. And here is the backward, nearly forgotten planet of Arrakis, where traders have discovered the remarkable properties of the spice melange…
. Ten thousand years before the events of Dune, humans have managed to battle the remorseless Machines to a standstill…
but victory may be short lived. Yet amid shortsighted squabbling between nobles, new leaders have begun to emerge. Among them are Xavier Harkonnen, military leader of the Planet of Salusa Secundus; Xavier’s fianc e, Serena Butler, an activist who will become the unwilling leader of millions; and Tio Holtzman, the scientist struggling to devise a weapon that will help the human cause. Against the brute efficiency of their adversaries, these leaders and the human race have only imagination, compassion, and the capacity for love. It will have to be enough.

The Machine Crusade (With: Brian Herbert)

The breathtaking vision and incomparable storytelling of Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson’s Dune: The Butlerian Jihad, a prequel to Frank Herbert’s classic Dune, propelled it to the ranks of speculative fiction’s classics in its own right. Now, with all the color, scope, and fascination of the prior novel, comes Dune: The Machine Crusade.. More than two decades have passed since the events chronicled in The Butlerian Jihad. The crusade against thinking robots has ground on for years, but the forces led by Serena Butler and Irbis Ginjo have made only slight gains; the human worlds grow weary of war, of the bloody, inconclusive swing from victory to defeat. The fearsome cymeks, led by Agamemnon, hatch new plots to regain their lost power from Omnius as their numbers dwindle and time begins to run out. The fighters of Ginaz, led by Jool Noret, forge themselves into an elite warrior class, a weapon against the machine dominated worlds. Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva are on the verge of the most important discovery in human history a way to ‘fold’ space and travel instantaneously to any place in the galaxy. And on the faraway, nearly worthless planet of Arrakis, Selim Wormrider and his band of outlaws take the first steps to making themselves the feared fighters who will change the course of history: the Fremen. Here is the unrivaled imaginative power that has put Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson on bestseller lists everywhere and earned them the high regard of readers around the globe. The fantastic saga of Dune continues in Dune: The Machine Crusade.

The Battle of Corrin (With: Brian Herbert)

Following their internationally bestselling novels Dune: The Butlerian Jihad and Dune: The Machine Crusade, Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson forge a final tumultuous finish to their prequels to Frank Herbert’s Dune. Dune: The Battle of CorrinIt has been fifty six hard years since the events of The Machine Crusade.

Synchronized Worlds and Unallied Planets are liberated one by one, and at long last, after years of struggle, the human worlds begin to hope that the end of the centuries long conflict with the thinking machines is finally in sight. Unfortunately, Omnius has one last, deadly card to play. In a last ditch effort to destroy humankind, virulent plagues are let loose throughout the galaxy, decimating the populations of whole planets…
and once again, the tide of the titanic struggle shifts against the warriors of the human race. At last, the war that has lasted many lifetimes will be decided in the apocalyptic Battle of Corrin. In the greatest battle in science fiction history, human and machine face off one last time…
. And on the desert planet of Arrakis, the legendary Fremen of Dune become the feared fighting force to be discovered by Paul Muad’Dib in Frank Herbert’s classic, Dune.

Each of these characters will use their special talents to meet the challenges thrown at them.

Hidden Empire

Hidden Empire begins a dazzling space opera fit to stand with the classics of the genre, combining the politics of Frank Herbert’s DUNE, the scope of Peter F. Hamilton’s NIGHT’S DAWN trilogy, and the pageantry and romance of STAR WARS In the far future, humanity began to search the stars, sending out vast spaceships that would take generations to reach their goals. In the depths of space they encountered the Ildiran empire apparently the galaxy’s only other intelligent civilisation. The Ildirans came to Earth and passed on the knowledge of their stardrive, allowing humanity to expand to the stars. Almost two hundred years after that first contact, there are human colonies proliferating through the galaxy. As Mankind seizes the future, danger comes from the past, for two human archaeologists glean forbidden knowledge from the ruins of a dead world. Once, the insect like Klikiss ruled the stars. Now, only their robot servants remain, guardians of a terrible technology the Klikiss Torch, which has the power to create suns. Now, Humanity prepares to flex its new found muscle and activate the Torch for the first time in millennia, but there are reasons the Klikiss empire fell, and a train of events is about to be set in motion, that will change the universe…

A Forest of Stars

It has been five years since humanity’s heady expansion among the stars came to an abrupt, and violent, halt. The emergence of the Hydrogues, an immensely powerful alien race dwelling within gas giant planets, has placed the scattered colonies of the Terran Hanseatic League in jeopardy. With space travel heavily curtailed, and supplies of fuel dwindling, young King Peter and Chairman Basil Wenceslas, the harsh power behind the throne, have no choice but to impose strict rationing. But the Hydrogues are not the only enemies of humanity. The scheming Mage Imperator, leader of the ancient Ildiran Empire, attempts to forge tangled alliances among all combatants in order to protect his failing civilization. The mysterious Klikiss robots, only remnants of an extinct race, continue to work their sinister plans while pretending to be friends and advisors to the Hanseatic League. And archaeologists Margaret and Louis Colicos whose discovery of an ancient alien weapon accidentally triggered the Hydrogue conflict have vanished on the abandoned world of Rheindic Co. Rlinda Kett and Davlin Lotze, sent to investigate the disappearance, soon realise that the Colicos’ discoveries may lead to an incredible new way to travel between worlds…
or to the awakening of enemies even more fearsome than the Hydrogues. Something of inestimable power must have been required to destroy the Klikiss race. Will humanity be next?

Horizon Storms

Caught in the middle of a titanic struggle between two alien superpowers, the factions of humanity and their allies, the Ildirans, are under siege. Can they resolve their differences to fight a common threat?

For the leader of the Roamers, survival means extending a helping hand to others, while the chairman of the Terran Hansa plans to use a new, untested alien weapon regardless of the consequences. And for the new Ildiran Mage Imperator, survival involves throwing off the choking traditions of the Empire even if it might trigger a civil war.

As old intrigues and dark secrets come to light, a man who is believed to be long dead returns with an ally who may save mankind. But this new fragile hope will be threatened by a fresh betrayal the most bitter and brutal of them all…

Scattered Suns

One of the today’s most successful science fiction writers, Kevin J. Anderson is the author of many popular Star Wars and X Files novels, as well as his bestselling Dune prequels, coauthored with Brian Herbert. Now Anderson returns with a stunning new chapter in the Saga of Seven Suns, his boldly imagined epic of interstellar intrigue and adventure…
The war between the alien hydrogues and the faeros rages, reducing suns to blackened shells including one of the fabled seven suns of the Ildiran Empire. Instead of protecting themselves, the Ildirans engage in bloody civil war and the many factions of humanity are bitterly divided. Can mankind and Ildirans overcome their own internal fighting to face a deadly new enemy that is ready to annihilate them? Newly ascended to the Ildiran throne, Mage Imperator Jora’h must quash the rebellion launched by his mad brother before the hydrogues destroy what is left of the empire. Assailed from all sides, Jora’h turns to his beloved half human daughter, dispatching her on a desperate mission to make peace with the hydrogues. Hope for humanity now rests with Jess Tamblyn, who continues to seed worlds with the watery wentals, the mortal enemies of the hydrogues. And on the ravaged planet of Theroc, home to a telepathic worldforest, a dead man is resurrected to prepare for the arrival of mysterious new allies in the fight. But Chairman Basil Wenceslas’s vendetta against the free spirited Roamers has blinded him to danger closer to home the soldier machines that make up the backbone of the Hansa fighting force. King Peter has long suspected that the compies, built with the help of the ancient Klikiss robots, cannot be trusted. Now the shocking proof comes when the Klikiss launch their long planned extermination of all things flesh and blood. And in the ensuing battle, humans and Ildirans alike will face their darkest choices yet…

Of Fire and Night

The extermination of Earth is at hand. With his increasingly irrational leadership Basil Wenceslas, chairman of the Hansa, has driven humanity into a corner. His punitive treatment of the Hansa colonies and the Roamers as well as his refusal to aid an embattled Theroc have made enemies for the people of Earth. Enemies that the Hansa cannot afford. Not when Wenceslas is struggling against revolt by soldier compies, who decimate the military by stealing ships and slaughtering soldiers; and betrayal by the Ildirans, led by Jora h the Mage Imperator, who is secretly scheming with the hydrogues to annihilate Earth.

Now disparate factions of humanity must plan for their own salvation. Worldtrees allied with humans on Theroc have rallied hulking, thorny tree battleships. Roamers work with powerful water entities, the wentals, to seed planets everywhere with a growing force to challenge the hydrogues.

But when the final battle with the hydrogues is joined, who will aid the people of Earth?

Metal Swarm

In the aftermath of a devastating war, swarms of ancient black robots built by the lost insectoid Klikiss race continue their depredations on helpless worlds with stolen and heavily armed Earth battleships.

Among the humans, the Hansa’s brutal Chairman struggles to crush any resistance even as King Peter breaks away to form his own new Confederation among the colonies who have declared their independence.

And meanwhile, the original, voracious Klikiss race, long thought to be extinct, has returned, intent on conquering their former worlds and willing to annihilate anyone in the way.

Zerg, protoss, and terran forces turn the planet into a bloody battlefield in their haste to claim the lost secrets of the most powerful species the universe has ever known.

This is the tale of Kerrigan’s shadowy origins and the war that was fought for her very soul.

The urban dwellers wish to expand into the prairies outside their cities the ancestral territory of the fierce, independent Ansion nomads.

Tatooine Ghost

Han Solo and Leia Organa take center stage, and stunning revelations from the past play a critical role in shaping the future, as the New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Star by Star now turns to a crucial chapter in the classic Star Wars saga.

And now a new threat looms: a masterpiece of Alderaanian art lost in transit after the planet’s destruction has resurfaced on the black market. Offered at auction, it will command a handsome price…
but its greatest value lies in the vital secret it conceals the key to a code used to communicate with New Republic agents deep undercover within the Empire. Discovery of the key by Imperial forces would spell certain disaster. The only option is recovery and Han, Leia, Chewbacca, and C 3PO have been dispatched to Tatooine to infiltrate the auction. But trouble is waiting when they arrive: an Imperial Star Destroyer is orbiting Tatooine on the lookout for Rebels; a mysterious stranger at the auction seems to recognize Leia; and an Imperial officer s aggressive bidding for the Alderaanian painting could foil the Solos mission. When a dispute erupts into violence, and the painting vanishes in the chaos, Han and Leia are thrust into a desperate race to reclaim it before Imperial troops or a band of unsavory treasure peddlers get there first. Dangerous as the chase is, for Leia it leads into especially dark territory. Already haunted by the specter of her infamous father, and fearful that his evil may infect future generations, she has suffered a disturbing Force vision of Luke turning to the dark side. As she battles beside Han against marauding TIE fighters, encroaching stormtroopers, and Tatooine s savage Tusken Raiders, Leia s struggle with the warring emotions inside her culminates in the discovery of an extraordinary link to the past. And as long buried secrets and truths at last emerge, she faces a moment of reckoning that will forever alter her destiny…

AN EMPIRE DIVIDED!

It is a time of great turmoil. The oppressive Empire is close to seizing complete control of the galaxy.

Outbound Flight

It began as the ultimate voyage of discovery only to become the stuff of lost Republic legend…
and a dark chapter in Jedi history. Now, at last, acclaimed author Timothy Zahn returns to tell the whole extraordinary story of the remarkable and doomed Outbound Flight Project.

The Clone Wars have yet to erupt when Jedi Master Jorus C baoth petitions the Senate for support of a singularly ambitious undertaking. Six Jedi Masters, twelve Jedi Knights, and fifty thousand men, women, and children will embark aboard a gargantuan vessel, equipped for years of travel on a mission to contact intelligent life and colonize undiscovered worlds beyond the known galaxy. The government bureaucracy threatens to scuttle the expedition before it can even start until Master C baoth foils a murderous conspiracy plot, winning him the political capital he needs to set in motion the dream of Outbound Flight.

Or so it would seem. For unknown to the famed Jedi Master, the successful launch of the mission is secretly being orchestrated by an unlikely ally: the evil Sith Lord, Darth Sidious, who has his own reasons for wanting Outbound Flight to move forward…
and, ultimately, to fail.

Yet Darth Sidious is not the mission’s most dangerous challenge. Once underway, the starship crosses paths at the edge of Unknown Space with the forces of the alien Chiss Ascendancy and the brilliant mastermind best known as Thrawn. Even Jedi Knight Obi Wan Kenobi, aboard Outbound Flight with his young Padawan student, Anakin Skywalker, cannot help avert disaster. Thus what begins as a peaceful Jedi mission is violently transformed into an all out war for survival against staggering odds and the most diabolical of adversaries.

Timothy Zahn s unique mix of espionage, political gamesmanship, and deadly interstellar combat breathes electrifying life into a Star Wars legend.

Star Wars

Never before has the incendiary mix of action, politics, and intrigue that has become Timothy Zahn’s trademark, been mmore evident that in this new Star Wars epic. On the heels of the stunning events chronicled in Star Wars: A New Hope, the newly minted heroes of the Rebellion-fledgling Jedi Luke Skywalker, smuggler turned reluctant freedom-fighter Han Solo, and Princess Leia Organa, a bold leader with a world to avenge-must face the harsh realities of the cataclysmic conflict into which they have so bravely plunged. From this point forward, legends will grow, treachery will abound, and lives will be irrevocably altered, in the long, hard fight to counter the fist of tyranny and restore hope to a galaxy too long in darkness.

The destruction of the Death Star by the Rebel Alliance was a decisive blow against the Empire, but Palpatine and his monstrous enforcer, Darth Vader, are no less of a threat. The brutal extermination of Alderaan not only demonstrated the magnitude of their murderous power, but served as a chilling testament to their resolve to crush the Rebel uprising. Standing against them, Skywalker, Solo, and the Princess remain uncertain opponents. Luke is gifted and brave, but unschooled in the power he possesses. Han has doubts about waging someone else’s war-and his contentiousness is one more burden for Leia to bear as she struggles to help keep the Rebellion alive. The three have been sent to mediate a dispute between Rebel Alliance factions in Shelsha Sector-agitating matters by forcing Han to deal not only with pirates, but with his more dreaded enemy, politics. At the same time, Mara Jade-all of eighteen and years away from her fateful meeting with Luke-is serving her evil master, Palpatine, well in her role as the Emperor’s Hand: tracking suspected treachery in the Empire to what may be high places-while trying to stay out of Darth Vader’s way.

But the Rebels will prove to be only one of the Empire’s concerns. For Imperial Stormtrooper Daric LaRone, his faith in the Empire shaken by the wanton destruction of Alderaan, will commit a sudden and violent act of defiance, and take four other enforcers with him, in a desperate bid to elude their masters’ wrath.

Each of these fateful actions, whether sanctioned, secret, or scandalous, will expose brutality and corruption, spur upheavals destined to shake the Empire to its core, and shape momentous events yet to come.

Death Star

THAT S NO MOON. Obi Wan KenobiThe Death Star‘s name says it all, with bone chilling accuracy. It is a virtual world unto itself equipped with uncanny power for a singularly brutal purpose: to obliterate entire planets in the blink of an eye. Its annihilation of the planet Alderaan, at the merciless command of Grand Moff Tarkin, lives in infamy. And its own ultimate destruction, at the hands of Luke Skywalker, is the stuff of legend. But what is the whole story, and who are the players, behind the creation of this world killing satellite of doom?The near extermination of the Jedi order cleared the way for Palpatine power hungry Senator and Sith Lord to seize control of the Republic, declare himself Emperor, and usher in a fearsome, totalitarian regime. But even with the dreaded Darth Vader enforcing Palpatine s sinister will, the threat of rebellion still looms. And the Emperor knows that only abject fear and the ability to punish dissent with devastating consequences can ensure his unchallenged control of the galaxy. Enter ambitious and ruthless government official Wilhuff Tarkin, architect of the Emperor s terrifying dream come true. From inception to completion, construction of the unprecedented Death Star is awash in the intrigues, hidden agendas, unexpected revelations, and daring gambits of those involved on every level. The brightest minds and boldest egos, the most ambitious and corrupt, the desperate and the devious, all have a stake in the Death Star and its potential to control the fate of the galaxy. Soldiers and slaves, loyalists and Rebels, spies and avengers, the innocent and the evil all their paths and fates will cross and intertwine as the Death Star moves from its maiden voyage to its final showdown. And a shadowy chapter of Star Wars history is stunningly illuminated in a thrilling, unforgettable adventure. From the Hardcover edition.

But even with the dreaded Darth Vader enforcing Palpatine s sinister will, the threat of rebellion still looms. And the Emperor knows that only abject fear and the ability to punish dissent with devastating consequences can ensure his unchallenged control of the galaxy. Enter ambitious and ruthless government official Wilhuff Tarkin, architect of the Emperor s terrifying dream come true. From inception to completion, construction of the unprecedented Death Star is awash in the intrigues, hidden agendas, unexpected revelations, and daring gambits of those involved on every level. The brightest minds and boldest egos, the most ambitious and corrupt, the desperate and the devious, all have a stake in the Death Star and its potential to control the fate of the galaxy. Soldiers and slaves, loyalists and Rebels, spies and avengers, the innocent and the evil all their paths and fates will cross and intertwine as the Death Star moves from its maiden voyage to its final showdown. And a shadowy chapter of Star Wars history is stunningly illuminated in a thrilling, unforgettable adventure. From the Hardcover edition.

It is the future and the dead walk the streets…
Resurrection, Inc. found a profitable way to do it. All it took was a microprocessor brain, a synthetic heart and blood, and, presto, anyone with the price could buy a Servant with no mind of its own and trained to obey any command.

Some took to rioting in the streets, their rampages ruthlessly ended by armored and heavily armed Enforcers, eager for the kill. Some joined the ever growing cult of Neo Satanism, seeking heaven in the depths of hell. Only one tried to change the world. His name was Danal, he was dead but he remembered. And he was the last hope for the living…
From the author: This is my first published novel, though I wrote many sadly embarrassing attempts, beginning when I was only eight years old. I had previously written the first book in a fantasy trilogy based on role playing games, Gamearth, and while my agent marketed it, I asked him if I should dutifully write the second book in the trilogy. He gave me very good advice: ‘No, do something completely different.’ That was Resurrection, Inc. an unusual combination of Gothic horror, hard SF, and murder mystery. The original paperback cover art had a rather unfortunate image of a giant stone skull with a spaceship flying overhead, icons jointly designed to turn off both SF and horror readers. Nevertheless, Resurrection, Inc. got great reviews and was nominated for the Bram Stoker Award. This is my preferred text of the novel, revised for the specialty press Tenth Anniversary edition. Cover by Bob Eggleton. Bram Stoker Award Preliminary Ballot Nominee, Locus Poll Award Nominee

The Martian War

Classic science fiction author H. G. Wells’s most memorable and compelling novel was arguably The War of the Worlds, made even more famous by the notorious Mercury Theater production starring Orson Wells that resulted in the ‘Night That Panicked America.’

But what if the Martian invasion was not entirely the product of H. G. Wells’s vivid imagination? What if Wells witnessed something that spurred him to write The War of the Worlds not as a form of entertainment but as a warning to the complacent people of Earth?

International bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson, writing here as Gabriel Mesta, explores that tantalizing theory in this unique, thrilling novel that expertly evokes the Victorian era. The Martian War takes the reader on an exhilarating journey with Wells and his companions, from drafty London flats to the steamy Sahara, to the surface of the moon, and beyond. Discover the truth about Martian invasion not only from Wells himself, but also from the enigmatic Dr. Moreau, who documents the very first alien autopsy! Written by one of our most popular science fiction authors, and filled with both historical detail and marvelous flights of fancy, The Martian War is pure delight from start to finish.

The Last Days of Krypton

Everyone knows how Kal El Superman was sent to Earth just before his planet exploded. But what led to such a disaster? Now, in The Last Days of Krypton, Kevin J. Anderson presents a sweeping tale of the pomp and grandeur, the intrigue and passion, and the politics and betrayals of a doomed world filled with brave heroes and cruel traitors.

Against the spectacular backdrop of Krypton’s waning halcyon days, there is the courtship and marriage of Kal El’s parents, the brilliant scientist Jor El and his historian wife, Lara. Together they fight to convince a stagnant, disbelieving society that their world is about to end. Jor El’s brother, Zor El, leader of the fabled Argo City, joins the struggle not only to save the planet but also to fight against the menace of the ruthless and cunning General Zod.

The diabolical Zod, future archenemy of Superman, avails himself of a golden opportunity to seize power when the android Brainiac captures the capital city of Kandor. As Zod’s grip on the populace tightens and his power grows, he too is blind to all the signs that point to the death of the very civilization he is trying to rule.

Through all of this, Jor El and Lara’s love for each other, their history, and their son allows for Krypton to live on even as the planet is torn apart around them. For in the escape of their baby lies Krypton’s greatest gift and Earth’s greatest hero.

The Last Days of Krypton is a timeless, ground breaking exploration of a world that has never been fully defined, and reveals the extraordinary origins of a legend that has never ceased to amaze and astound generation after generation.

Dogged Persistence

Deep in a tomblike cavern along the ocean floor lies a secret that has remained hidden from humanity. Until now…
An Oilstar drilling rig off the coast of Venezuela in the Dragon’s Mouth channel has pierced an underwater cavern and brings to the surface four stones unlike anything on this earth. Frik Van Alman, the tough as nails maverick head of Oilstar realizes immediately that they represent an extraordinary opportunity…
and a terrible danger. His superstitious native crew, already uneasy working in the infamous waterway, refuse to dive in search of a fifth stone, and when Frik’s lab chief tests them, the results confirm Frik’s hunch: when these four stones are connected they hint at a power source that could revolutionize the world’s energy production. And, Frik realizes, such a revolution would put him and all other oil companies out of business. Before he can plot his next move, his lab chief Paul Trujold, fearing the greed and calculation in Frik’s eyes, sends the stones to safer hands. One of the stones lands in the hands of Paul’s daughter, Selene Trujold, the leader of an ecological action trying to halt Frik’s drilling and the damage it’s causing to the Caribbean ecology. Frik and Trujold meet in the lab after Paul has sent away the stones, and an accident badly burns them both, killing Paul before Frik can find out what he’s done with the find. Desperate to reclaim the stones and determined to find the fifth piece of the puzzle, Frik enlists the aid of the Daredevils Club, a select few risk taking thrill seekers of whom Frik is one, who meet every New Year’s Eve to compare bold new stories of the past year’s exploits. Their members are a disparate bunch, including a doctor, Arthur Marryshow, whose greatest risk is healing those who risk their lives in political hotspots; Ray Arno, a stuntman turned demolitions expert; Simon Brousseau, an expert deep sea diver; and Joshua Keene and Terris McKendry, a bickering best buddies tandem experienced in undercover operations requiring strength, expertise with weapons, and nerves of steel. At the next New Year’s Eve meeting, Frik proposes a mission: collect all five stones and return them to him. Along with the rest of the daredevils is Peta Whyte, Marryshow’s proteg , not officially a member, but more than qualified by her role in planning and effecting Arthur’s escape from prison on her native Grenada sixteen years before, when she was but sixteen. She attends in Arthur’s place, for he’s been killed, victim of a terrorist bombing just blocks from their Times Square rendezvous. The Daredevils embark on an adventure that takes them along the coast of Venezuela, from stealth jungle raids to deep sea dives, from the haunts of Latin American power brokers to the camp of eco terrorists. A fast paced, thrill a minute hunt challenges the loyalties of the daredevils, as they become pawns in a deadly game of deceit and betrayal. After all the adrenaline rushes and spilt blood, the remaining members of the Daredevils Club gather once again on the following New Year’s Eve, this time in Las Vegas, for one final confrontation, as Frik slips the five stones into place…
as the unthinkable is created.

An Oilstar drilling rig off the coast of Venezuela in the Dragon’s Mouth channel has pierced an underwater cavern and brings to the surface four stones unlike anything on this earth. Frik Van Alman, the tough as nails maverick head of Oilstar realizes immediately that they represent an extraordinary opportunity…
and a terrible danger. His superstitious native crew, already uneasy working in the infamous waterway, refuse to dive in search of a fifth stone, and when Frik’s lab chief tests them, the results confirm Frik’s hunch: when these four stones are connected they hint at a power source that could revolutionize the world’s energy production. And, Frik realizes, such a revolution would put him and all other oil companies out of business. Before he can plot his next move, his lab chief Paul Trujold, fearing the greed and calculation in Frik’s eyes, sends the stones to safer hands. One of the stones lands in the hands of Paul’s daughter, Selene Trujold, the leader of an ecological action trying to halt Frik’s drilling and the damage it’s causing to the Caribbean ecology. Frik and Trujold meet in the lab after Paul has sent away the stones, and an accident badly burns them both, killing Paul before Frik can find out what he’s done with the find. Desperate to reclaim the stones and determined to find the fifth piece of the puzzle, Frik enlists the aid of the Daredevils Club, a select few risk taking thrill seekers of whom Frik is one, who meet every New Year’s Eve to compare bold new stories of the past year’s exploits. Their members are a disparate bunch, including a doctor, Arthur Marryshow, whose greatest risk is healing those who risk their lives in political hotspots; Ray Arno, a stuntman turned demolitions expert; Simon Brousseau, an expert deep sea diver; and Joshua Keene and Terris McKendry, a bickering best buddies tandem experienced in undercover operations requiring strength, expertise with weapons, and nerves of steel. At the next New Year’s Eve meeting, Frik proposes a mission: collect all five stones and return them to him. Along with the rest of the daredevils is Peta Whyte, Marryshow’s proteg , not officially a member, but more than qualified by her role in planning and effecting Arthur’s escape from prison on her native Grenada sixteen years before, when she was but sixteen. She attends in Arthur’s place, for he’s been killed, victim of a terrorist bombing just blocks from their Times Square rendezvous. The Daredevils embark on an adventure that takes them along the coast of Venezuela, from stealth jungle raids to deep sea dives, from the haunts of Latin American power brokers to the camp of eco terrorists. A fast paced, thrill a minute hunt challenges the loyalties of the daredevils, as they become pawns in a deadly game of deceit and betrayal. After all the adrenaline rushes and spilt blood, the remaining members of the Daredevils Club gather once again on the following New Year’s Eve, this time in Las Vegas, for one final confrontation, as Frik slips the five stones into place…
as the unthinkable is created.
