Una raccolta di racconti definiti 'oscuri' per l'eterno intrecciarsi tra bene e male, la loro eterna lotta per la supremazia. Dando spazio alla fantasia di correre tra demoni e angeli, tra negozi di giocattoli che si animano fino al traghettatore della anime senza tralasciare fantasmi e presenze demoniache. La spontaneità e la semplicità con cui Alexander scrive i suoi racconti fa si che chiunque li legga si appassioni alle storie e si immedesimi nelle situazioni e nei personaggi stessi; le narrazioni di fantasia si incastrano alla perfezione con la realtà a tal punto che spesso è difficile farne la scissione. Gli scritti non mancano di colpi di scena, sono ricchi di emozioni e sanno suscitare un vivo interesse nel lettore che viene avvolto da un alone di mistero che li circonda e, senza rendersene conto, si ritrova alla fine di ogni storia con la voglia di iniziarne subito una nuova. I contenuti non sono mai cruenti o volgari, sono alla portata di tutti, anche di chi è reticente nella lettura di storie horror. Le descrizioni degli ambienti e dei protagonisti sono fatte con cura e con particolare attenzione a tal punto che sembra che l’autore sia egli stesso il vero protagonista del racconto. La parte che colpisce maggiormente durante la lettura è la delicatezza con cui viene affrontato ogni genere di situazione, sia che si tratti di un pupazzo maligno oppure che sia la perdita di un amore. Ed è così, attraverso parole che raccontano immagini di fantasia che si apre un nuovo modo di vedere la scrittura horror intrecciata con il nuovo genere urban fantasy. Non sono racconti scritti con l’inchiostro, ma con l'anima.

It is the third and final year of Fimbulvetr, the long and cold winter that precedes the end of the Nine Worlds. Midgard lies asleep under a thick layer of ice and snow. The city of men have fallen prey to ravenous wolf packs and bloodthirsty marauders. Gods, trolls and giants ready their weapons and magics for the last battle between Order and Chaos. All prepare for Ragnarok, the ultimate clash of the gods. All except Valhalla, whose tall walls are beset by deafening silence ... No singing or clash of swords can be heard. Sitting on his crumbling throne, Odin sleeps a long and dreamless sleep, waiting for the return of his memory from the inscrutable ocean of the universe and with it his strength to stand up to the Nine World and foster the flourishing of a new beginning. The book includes an essential essay on Norse mythology.

Now a major motion picture! Pablo Escobar was one of the most terrifying criminal minds of the last century. In the decade before his death in 1993, he reigned as the head of a multinational cocaine industry and brought the Colombian state to its knees, killing thousands of politicians, media personalities, police, and unarmed citizens. In the 1980s, Virginia Vallejo was Colombia’s most famous television celebrity: a top-rated anchorwoman and a twice-divorced socialite who had been courted by the country’s four wealthiest men. In 1982, she interviewed Pablo Escobar on her news program, and soon after, they began a discreet—albeit stormy—romantic relationship. During their five-year affair, Escobar would show Vallejo the vulnerability of presidents, senators, and military leaders seeking to profit from the drug trade. From Vallejo’s privileged perspective and her ability to navigate the global corridors of wealth and high society, Escobar gained the insight to master his manipulation ofColombia’s powerful elite and media. Loving Pablo, Hating Escobar chronicles the birth of Colombia’s drug cartels: the kidnappers, the guerilla groups, and the paramilitary organizations. It is, above everything, a great love story—a deep and painful journeythrough a forbidden relationship—that gives us an intimate vision of thelegendary drug baron who left his mark on Colombia, Latin America, the United States, and the world forever.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Terry Brooks's Bearers of the Black Staff. Ben Holiday, mere mortal turned monarch of the magic kingdom of Landover, has grappled with numerous contenders for his throne, but nothing could have prepared him for the most daunting of challengers: his headstrong teenage daughter, Mistaya. After getting suspended from an exclusive private school in our world, Mistaya is determined to resume her real education—learning sorcery from court wizard Questor Thews—whether her parents like it or not. Then, horrified that a repulsive Landover nobleman seeks to marry her, Mistaya decides that the only way to run her own life is to run away from home. So begins an eventful odyssey peppered with a formidable dragon, recalcitrant Gnomes, an inscrutable magic cat, a handsome librarian, a sinister sorcerer, and more than a few narrow escapes as fate draws Landover’s intrepid princess into the thick of a mystery that will put her mettle to the test—and possibly bring the kingdom to its knees.

Written in the early 1890s, before Czech independence and in an age of patriotic upsurge and romanticism, these thirty-four tales quite naturally reflect a glorification of the Czech past. While the details of the legends are necessarily archaic, peopled by kings and noblemen, ghosts and magic, the themes are universal. Now at the dawn of a new era of Czech independence, they provide a fascinating new perspective to the contemporary situation.

Nominated for both the Eisner and Harvey Awards for Best Foreign Language Publication! When Corto Maltese arrives in the Middle East and Africa in 1918 the shifting sands and loyalties reveal colonial powers still battling for domination over each other and the indigenous people. The desert of Yemen, controlled by the fading Ottoman Empire, is the setting for "In the Name of Allah, the Merciful and Compassionate," where Corto meets Cush, the Danikil warrior with whom he establishes a close yet conflicted relationship. In "The Coup de Grace" the stubborn racism of an English commander of a small fort in British Somaliland leads to conflict with Cush and the Dervish army of Sayyid Mohamed, whom the British call "The Mad Mullah." The action moves to Ethiopia amidst inter-tribal conflict in "...and of Other Romeos and Other Juliets," as Cush introduces Corto to the mysterious and powerful shaman Shamael, who hears the voices of the dead and of devils. German East Africa is the background of "The Leopard-Men of the Rufiji," where Corto is engulfed in a dreamlike atmosphere that reveals how African justice operates outside the constraints of "white" law.
