WHAT THEY HAVE LOST, WE MUST FIND. The resistance has nearly been wiped out, its numbers reduced to a scant fraction of what they once were. Meyer has fallen. With hope nearly a memory, something must turn the tide of war. A deadly weapon, known only as Thor’s Hammer, brings promise of salvation. Now, the scattered remnants of the human race must find the device and recover it before the aliens can discover its location. Because if the rampaging Astral forces beat them to the weapon, the fate of Earth will be sealed. This relentless, page-turning tale of colonization and alien empire is the fourth in the Alien Invasion series by masters of story Truant and Platt, authors of The Beam, Robot Proletariat, the Dream Engineseries, and many more. Fight for hope. Search for survival.

FIND THE MISSING. FEAR THE FOUND. Three months have passed since the space fleet’s arrival, but very little has changed in the skies above planet Earth. Motherships still hover without word, impervious to attack and communication. Spherical shuttles still ferry about, their intentions unclear. But the abductions of select humans have ended and most of those taken have been returned — dazed, incoherent, and prophesying glory or doom — but back home where they belong. All but nine. Worldwide, only nine seemingly unconnected people remain missing. Trapped in their besieged bunker outside Vail, Piper, Trevor, Lila, and Heather wait for one of them. All of this has happened before… For his entire life, Benjamin Bannister has sought the connections that unite the planet’s wonders: Egypt’s pyramids and Stonehenge, the Band of Holes in Peru and the Cambay Ruins. For years he’s pursued evidence that extraterrestrial life is not new to Earth, but has left its footprints in the archeological records over and over again. For years, he was dismissed as a fool. But now the spheres have arrived and Benjamin has found his vindication … along with troubling theories as to what it all means. Benjamin’s research facility rests beneath the mothership in Moab, Utah — but Vail, Colorado is where his interests lie. He’s sent an emissary to Meyer Dempsey’s ranch to find the answer to a question: What makes the Missing Nine so special to the planet’s silent invaders? What news will those Nine bring when they return? And what, as the motherships again begin to move like pieces finding positions on a chessboard, will happen next? …and it will all happen again. Vail and Moab, Moab and Vail — two epicenters in the cold alien war. The locations’ fates (and the fates of those bunkered at each) seem somehow intertwined as Earth’s clock ticks toward midnight. The roads and communications have been closed, but now it seems that the planet’s future might depend on a journey from one to the other at all costs. Humanity must find the value of those who have been taken … or become mere fossil evidence for the archaeologists of the future to puzzle over. This relentless, page-turning tale of first contact is the second in theAlien Invasion series by masters of story Truant and Platt, authors ofThe Beam, Robot Proletariat, the Dream Engine series, and many more.

THEY KNOW WHAT WE’VE DONE. Cameron Bannister and his group of survivors have endured the fall of their great city, gone searching for what they once believed to be a weapon … but found to be something else entirely. It’s something that will decide the fate of all humanity — innocent or guilty — if Cameron can summon the will to start the doomsday clock ticking. Accompanied by a strange wanderer with a hidden past, they must confront the judgment archive at its new location in the “capital of capitals”: Ember Flats, on the former site of Giza, beyond the infamously unpassable wasteland known as Hell’s Corridor. But when they arrive, all is not as it seems … and the viceroy, along with the secret society hiding within her government, is keeping secrets that keep the city calm — while unrest boils beneath its skin. When a double-cross threatens the group’s center, only a risky plan might save the species before judgment comes … or bring the walls crashing down as the epoch ends in extinction. This relentless, page-turning tale of colonization and alien empire is the fifth in the Alien Invasion series by masters of story Truant and Platt, authors of The Beam, Robot Proletariat, the Dream Engine series, and many more.

HUMANITY ISN’T ALL THEY LEFT BEHIND. Two years later, the world lives in fragile peace. But a clandestine search has begun … and a clock has started ticking. Two years after first contact, Astral forces have established their fragile kingdom around the globe. Motherships occupy the cities. Shuttles patrol the lawless outlands. The pacifist class of Astrals known as Titans assist humans in running their alien empire, while bloodthirsty Reptar peacekeepers ensure that order is kept. And unseen in the ships above, a third class of visitor calls the shots — the unseen Divinity, worshipped and feared by citizens in equal measure. Meyer Dempsey sits on his plinth as Viceroy of Heaven’s Veil, on the old site of Vail, Colorado. As with other Viceroys in the eight other world capitals, humanity’s remains revere Meyer almost as a god. But below the surface, both colonies and outlands have begun to crumble with unrest. Until now, the rebellion has been quiet. Now, desperation bubbles as they learn the Astrals have begun digging for an ancient device buried beneath the glowing blue Apex at Heaven’s Veil. But twin truths of the forthcoming alien war (or a possible alien apocalypse) have dawned at Benjamin Bannister’s facility in Moab, sending plans into action: The Astrals have lost what they hoped to uncover. And humanity’s only chance is to find it first. This relentless, page-turning tale of colonization and alien empire is the third in the Alien Invasion series by masters of story Truant and Platt, authors of The Beam, Robot Proletariat, the Dream Engineseries, and many more.

ETERNITY HAS A NEW BEGINNING. With the human race decimated, only a handful of survivors still wander the planet. They’ve forgotten the Astrals and they’ve forgotten their pasts, ready for a fresh start … … or at least, that’s how it was supposed to happen. In a small desert village without memory, the Lightborn labor unseen — while in the Mullah stronghold beyond, Clara fights an old battle to free the minds of mankind. She’s come up against a wall. She’s fallen into a trap. And now, finally, the walls have begun to crumble. The Astrals linger unseen, unable to leave the planet. But now they face a challenge they’ve never seen before: a new human mindscape that persists despite their best efforts to erase it, a will that refuses to die. The Archetypes rise, but their chore is an impossible one. They must infiltrate the collective on their own terms and perhaps save what little humanity still holds in its grasp … or force the planet’s deadlocked overlords to destroy the human race for good. This relentless, page-turning tale of colonization and alien empire is the SEVENTH AND FINAL book in the Alien Invasion series by masters of story Truant and Platt, authors of The Beam, Robot Proletariat, the Dream Engine series, and many more.

The Southern Reach Trilogy begins with this Nebula Award-winning novel that "reads as if Verne or Wellsian adventurers exploring a mysterious island had warped through into a Kafkaesque nightmare world" (Kim Stanley Robinson). Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; the second expedition ended in mass suicide; the third expedition in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another. The members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within weeks, all had died of cancer. In Annihilation, the first volume of Jeff VanderMeer's Southern Reach trilogy, we join the twelfth expedition. The group is made up of four women: an anthropologist; a surveyor; a psychologist, the de facto leader; and our narrator, a biologist. Their mission is to map the terrain, record all observations of their surroundings and of one another, and, above all, avoid being contaminated by Area X itself. They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers—they discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding—but it's the surprises that came across the border with them and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another that change everything.

The battle over Shift — the electoral process that will decide the nation’s fate — is heating up ... while at the same time something is happening within the Beam network: a thing coming alive, its power unchecked and out of control. Micah and Isaac Ryan, the brothers sitting at each political party’s head, have resorted to tooth-and-nail tactics to eke out as many votes as possible. The Beau Monde observes everything, sticking their fingers in the pie only to change the flavor to their personal tastes. Everyone else has one simple goal: surviving the battle. Kai struggles with a job bigger than she’s ever faced, against a foe she can’t hope to outwit. Dominic, his law enforcement job precarious after betraying the drug runners he once smuggled for, must keep his head down even as he pokes his nose into the game of higher politics. And Nicolai, the unwitting harbinger of the Beam itself, concocts his own plots to overthrow the arrogant Ryans once and for all. Yet all their efforts — great and small alike — will pale in comparison to the oncoming storm, the cataclysmic return of one of history’s greatest figures. Someone from the Beam’s very conception is about to appear anew, and with humanity interconnected like never before, their footsteps will rock the NAU like a meteor strike. Shift is finally here. But even those who think they control its sway are not prepared for what happens next.

What is real, Eila? When Eila Doyle first hears the strange boy calling from somewhere deep in her sleep, she begins to question her sanity. In the gleaming steampunk world of Waldron's Gate, citizens aren't meant to dream -- and those who eschew their daily Crumble and dare to do so anyway face madness … and imprisonment in Joffrey Columns, the asylum of towers. And yet, "Dreaming" of a very specific sort is what Eila does every day at the Ministry of Manifestation with her mind hooked to the great engine, called the Blunderbuss. She's accustomed to using her thoughts to Build all that the city needs … but never before have her thoughts been so dark, so laced with demons and shadows. Now those nighttime visions hint at dark conspiracy, a millennium of lies, and a fathomless secret hiding beneath the quiet streets. As Eila follows the boy down the rabbit hole, she discovers secrets that were meant to remain hidden. She discovers an unknown caste of underlings, an unknown place underneath the city. And she learns of her terrible destiny as her own dreams and reality blur, as "what is real?" becomes something uncertain. This thrilling young adult dystopian adventure is the first in the Dream Engine series by masters of story Platt & Truant, authors of The Beam, Unicorn Western, and many more. The Dream Engine will have you asking yourself "What is real?" along with Eila's strong female lead -- but watch what you ask for, because the answer may unsettle and disturb you for weeks to come.
