обложка книги Serpiente del Sueño Serpiente del Sueño

Llamaron Serpiente a la curadora y ella se sentía orgullosa de ese nombre, pues la medicina destilada del veneno de la víbora que llevaba consigo era una cura potente; y el poder tranquilizador de su otra compañera, la alienígena serpiente del sueño, desterraba el miedo. Pero la primitiva ignorancia de aquellos a los que servía mató a la serpiente del sueño y arruinó su carrera: las serpientes del sueño eran escasas y Centro no quería concederle otra. La única esperanza de Serpiente era encontrar otra serpiente del sueño y por ello emprendió un largo viaje. En su búsqueda la perseguían dos hombres implacables: uno impulsado por el amor y el otro por el miedo y la necesidad.

Una novela llena de aventuras, emoción y sentimientos que ha labrado la fama de su autora.

Vencedor del premios Nebula en 1978, Hugo y Locus en 1979.

An anthology of stories

Sherlock Holmes is back!

Sherlock Holmes, the world’s first-and most famous-consulting detective, came to the world’s attention more than 120 years ago through Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novels and stories. But Conan Doyle didn’t reveal all of the Great Detective’s adventures…

Here are some of the best Holmes pastiches of the last 30 years, twenty-eight tales of mystery and the imagination detailing Holmes’s further exploits, as told by many of today’s greatest storytellers, including Stephen King, Anne Perry, Anthony Burgess, Neil Gaiman, Naomi Novik, Stephen Baxter, Tanith Lee, Michael Moorcock, and many more.

These are the improbable adventures of Sherlock Holmes, where nothing is impossible, and nothing can be ruled out. In these cases, Holmes investigates ghosts, curses, aliens, dinosaurs, shapeshifters, and evil gods. But is it the supernatural, or is there a perfectly rational explanation?

You won’t be sure, and neither will Holmes and Watson as they match wits with pirates, assassins, con artists, and criminal masterminds of all stripes, including some familiar foes, such as their old nemesis, Professor Moriarty.

In these pages you’ll also find our heroes crossing paths with H. G. Wells, Lewis Carroll, and even Arthur Conan Doyle himself, and you’ll be astounded to learn the truth behind cases previously alluded to by Watson but never before documented until now. These are tales that take us from the familiar quarters at 221B Baker Street to alternate realities, from the gaslit streets of London to the far future and beyond.

Whether it’s mystery, fantasy, horror, or science fiction, no puzzle is too challenging for the Great Detective. The game is afoot!

обложка книги The Moon and the Sun The Moon and the Sun

In seventeenth-century France, Louis XIV rules with flamboyant ambition. From the Hall of Mirrors to the vermin-infested attics of the Chateau at Versailles, courtiers compete to please the king, sacrificing fortune, principles, and even the sacred bond between brother and sister.

Marie-Josèphe de la Croix looks forward to assisting her adored brother in the scientific study of the rare sea monsters the king has commissioned him to seek. For the honor of his God, his country, and his king, Father Yves de la Croix returns with his treasures, believed to be the source of immortality: one heavy shroud packed in ice… and a covered basin that imprisons a shrieking creature.

The living sea monster, with its double tail, tangled hair, and gargoyle face, provides an intriguing experiment for Yves and the king. Yet for Marie-Josèphe, the creature’s gaze and exquisite singing foretell a different future…

Soon Marie-Josèphe is contemplating choices that defy the institutions which power her world. Somehow, she must find the courage to follow her heart and her convictions—even at the cost of changing her life forever.

A sensitive investigation of the integrity in all of us, The Moon and the Sun is destined to become a visionary classic.

обложка книги Wąż snu Wąż snu

Wężyca jest jedną z bardzo niewielu uzdrowicielek, które w swojej pracy wykorzystują lecznicze właściwości jadu węży. Należą do niej trzy: Mgła — kobra, Piasek — grzechotnik i Trawa — niezwykle rzadki pozaziemski wąż snu, który uśmierza lęki i łagodzi cierpienia konających. Podczas swoich wędrówek przez pustynię — na skutek ignorancji i zwykłego ludzkiego strachu — Wężyca traci Trawę, a wraz z nią swoje zdolności uzdrowicielskie. Postanawia dotrzeć do Miasta, by u obcych istot wyprosić nowego węża snu. Jej śladem podążają dwaj mężczyźni — jeden oszalały z miłości, drugi wiedziony uzależnieniem od jadu węża snu…
