Cover launch! EXISTENCE and the new-look David Brins

EXISTENCE, a science fiction novel from the award-winning David Brin, admired by Stephen Baxter

This November, we’re releasing the paperback edition of David Brin’s science fiction masterpiece EXISTENCE (UK | ANZ). It’s his first novel to be released in ten years, and he’s truly returned in triumphant form.

It’s a breathtaking novel about First Contact – one that asks ‘why are we alone?’ and ‘are all civilisations doomed to fail?’ And it does it in spectacular, imaginative, mind-boggling, heart-thumping style.

See the paperback cover to the left and just a few of the reviews this unmissable book has been receiving:

‘Cleverly argued and uncomfortably plausible’ SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

‘A masterpiece of rock-hard SF’ SUN

‘Brin tackles a plethora of cutting-edge concepts…with the skill of a visionary futurologist’ GUARDIAN

‘Bursting with ideas, including near-future tech, first contact with aliens, and the exploration of what it means to be human’ i09.com

‘Existence is my top SF novel of 2012 and I recommend it without hesitation’ SFFWORLD.COM

But it’s not just EXISTENCE that we’re releasing this winter. We’re also giving a makeover to some of David Brin’s most classic titles. See the new-look covers below in all their glory…

New-look covers for David Brin's classic science fiction titles EARTH, POSTMAN, the UPLIFT trilogy and the second Uplifgt triology, called EXILES

See more info about each title below! Read the rest of this entry »

N.K. Jemisin’s third Nebula nomination

N.K. Jemisin’s The Kingdom of Gods (US | UK | ANZ) has been nominated for the 2011 Nebula Award!

Last year, her The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (US | UK | ANZ) was nominated for the same award, as well as the Hugo and World Fantasy Awards, and won the Locus Award for Best First Novel. Jemisin has one other Nebula nomination under her belt, for her short story “Non-Zero Probabilities.”

Jemisin’s new novel, The Killing Moon (US | UK | ANZ) will be out in May, followed by its sequel The Shadowed Sun in June.
