PLANETARY has been hailed as a timeless story that turned modern superhero conventions on their heads.Written by Warren Ellis (TRANSMETROPOLITAN) and with stunning art by John Cassaday (Astonishing X-Men), this critically acclaimed, landmark series took a look at the inter-dimensional peace-keeping force known as Planetary. The trio on the ground includes Elijah Snow, a hundred-year-old man, Jakita Wagner, an extremely powerful woman, and The Drummer, a man with the ability to communicate with machines. Tasked with tracking down evidence of super-human activity, these mystery archaeologists uncover unknown paranormal secrets and histories, such as a World War II supercomputer that can access other universes, a ghostly spirit of vengeance, and a lost island of dying monsters. All 27 issues of the original series are collected in this hardbound omnibus edition.

100 Opfer. 100 Waffen. 1 Killer. Detective Tallow hat einen richtig miesen Tag: Erst muss er mitansehen, wie sein Partner von einem Irren niedergeschossen wird, dann entdeckt er zufällig ein verrammeltes Apartment, das bis zur Decke mit Waffen vollgestopft ist. Zu allem Überfluss stellt sich heraus, dass jede einzelne davon einen Menschen getötet hat – und keiner dieser Morde wurde je aufgeklärt. Hunderte Fälle, die bereits bei den Akten lagen, müssen somit neu aufgerollt werden. Tallow soll sich der Sache annehmen. Doch der geheimnisvolle Killer ist nach wie vor aktiv ...

Eheleute, die nach der Trennung den Ring nicht vom Finger bekommen; andere, die ihn weitertragen, weil er ihnen einfach zu gut steht; eine Frau, der, nichts ahnend, während ihr Mann im Keller werkelt, die Scheidungspapiere zugestellt werden; Väter, die die Biege machen; ein Paar, das die Reise in die Karibik auch nach der Trennung durchzieht. »Das Ende der Liebe war ein großer Zombiefilm.« Lorrie Moores Figuren stehen an einem Scheideweg. Das Leben ist sie hart angegangen, aber in ihrem ganz alltäglichen Mut stemmen sie sich Fehlschlägen und Enttäuschungen entgegen. »Alle Männer sind Aliens!«, ruft eine ihrer strauchelnden Heldinnen empört und verwundert zugleich. Und doch beginnen sie immer wieder, sich auf das Wagnis Liebe einzulassen. Scharfsinnig, lakonisch, traurig und doch tröstlich, Lorrie Moore ist ihren Figuren ganz nah. Sie nimmt das Außergewöhnliche ihrer gewöhnlichen Existenz in den Blick, behütet und bewahrt ihre Würde. »Danke, dass ich kommen durfte« ist ein leuchtendes, strahlendes Buch, beißend in seinem Humor, mitreißend in seiner emotionalen Kraft.

Bestsellerautorin Marion Zimmer Bradley ("Die Nebel von Avalon") hat mit dem opulenten Darkover-Zyklus eine einzigartige Romanreihe geschaffen: Die fesselnde Geschichte einer geheimnisvollen fremden Welt und ihrer Bewohner ist Kult! "Gesellschaft zur Planetenvernichtung" - so lautet der inoffizielle und höchst bedrohliche Titel einer Organisation, von der nur hinter vorgehaltener Hand gesprochen wird. Ihr Vorgehen ist ebenso subtil wie brutal: Sie legt nicht den gesamten Planeten in Schutt und Asche, sondern bricht vielmehr den Überlebenswillen jener Völker, die nicht gewillt sind, sich vom Terranischen Imperium ausbeuten zu lassen. Und sie hat einen neuen Auftrag: den Planeten Darkover...

A Rhine Maiden Omnibus

This Omnibus edition collects the first three Rhine Maiden novels into a single volume. Don't Rhine on My Parade: "She speaks and they obey," but even a supernatural ability can't help this stay-at-home mom control her own life. Don't Rhine on My Parade is a laugh-out-loud urban-fantasy with an unlikely protagonist, a young mother who has an unusual power. Blessed, or perhaps cursed, with the ability to command obedience, Piper Cavanaugh's normal life turns upside down in this full-length novel. A descendant of the Rhine Maidens who sang sailors to their deaths, Piper has vowed to never use her power of command, but one little slip-up and her secret has come back to bite her - literally. Now she must gain permission to join the United Supernatural Beings, or it's open hunting season on all of humanity. While juggling toddlers, keeping her husband in the dark, and babysitting her rebellious kid sister, Piper finds herself befriending a vampire, stealing from murderous witches, and doing battle with "Satan," otherwise known as her mother-in-law. And she thought grocery shopping with her kids was hard! Don't Rhine on My Parade is a refreshing switch for readers who long for a more relatable heroine. With commonsense and sass, Piper handles diapers to decapitations as only a mother can. Filled with comedy, action, and thrills, Don't Rhine on My Parade expands the borders of urban fantasy into the suburbs! It Never Rhines But it Pours: Rhine maiden, Piper Cavanaugh, is on the job as a Guardian hit-man, but can she execute an innocent witch? When she discovers her target has been framed, Piper has to find the true killer or risk losing her job – and her life. As she sorts through a dwindling number of suspects, Piper tries to keep her trigger-happy vampire friend in line, fix a back-fired spell, deal with some unwanted house guests, and still find time to mother her two toddlers. With every use of her power of command bringing her closer to immortality, Piper soon realizes, it never “rhines” but it pours! A Little Rhine Must Fall: Rhine Maiden, Piper Cavanaugh, is no stranger to unusual houseguests, but an alien and an Egyptian goddess might be more than even she can handle. Throw in a homicidal vampire bent on revenge, and an pushy mother-in-law bent on redecorating, and Piper’s world is in turmoil. With her life crumbling around her and the future of mankind in the balance, Piper must reveal her secret ability and risk losing everything she holds dear.
