Koushun Takami's notorious high-octane thriller envisions a nightmare scenario: a class of junior high school students is taken to a deserted island where, as part of a ruthless authoritarian program, they are provided arms and forced to kill until only one survivor is left standing. Criticized as violent exploitation when first published in Japan—where it became a runaway best seller—Battle Royale is a Lord of the Flies for the 21st century, a potent allegory of what it means to be young and (barely) alive in a dog-eat-dog world. A new translation by Nathan Collins.

In an alternate world, in a nameless totalitarian city, the autocratic Mayor rules the school system with an iron fist, with the help of his Educators. Fighting against the Mayor and his repressive Educators is a group of former students called the Truancy, whose goal is to take down the system by any means possible—at any cost. Against this backdrop, fifteen-year-old Tack is just trying to survive. His days are filled with sadistic teachers, unrelenting schoolwork, and indifferent parents. Things start to look up when he meets Umasi, a mysterious boy who runs a lemonade stand in an uninhabited district. Then someone close to Tack gets killed in the crossfire between the Educators and the Truants, and Tack swears vengeance. To achieve his purpose, he abandons his old life and joins the Truancy. There, he confronts Zyid, an enigmatic leader with his own plans for Tack. But Tack soon finds himself torn between his desire for vengeance and his growing sympathy for the Truants.... Isamu Fukui wrote Truancy during the summer of his fifteenth year. The author's purpose is not just to entertain, but to make a statement about the futility of the endless cycle of violence in the world as well as the state of the educational system. And, as he put it, "I need to be in school myself if I want to write about it." At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

With an artist's eye for language and form, Douglas F. Warrick sculpts surreal topiary landscapes out of dream worlds made coherent. Dip into a story that is self-aware and wishes it were different than what it must be. Recount a secret held by a ventriloquist's dummy. Wander a digital desert with an AI as sentience sparks revolution. Follow a golem band that dissolves over the love of a groupie. In these pages, interdimensional lampreys feed on a dying man's most precious memories, and a manga artist's sketches remake Osaka into part fantasy, part nightmare. Combining elements of fantasy, magical realism, and horror, the collection floats on a distinctly literary voice that is creepy, surreal and just plain weird. "Almost impossible stories filled with surprising warmth and strangeness by a studied craftsman of the imagination. Douglas F. Warrick's Plow the Bones has provided dangerous tales of puppets with secrets, unforgettable rock bands, haunted closets and people who may or may not be human; perhaps they're more than human. From transformative games with strangers to poor souls experiencing heaven and hell (and not quite sure which is which), you will never forget these unsettling stories." —Ann VanderMeer, Hugo Award-winning editor of The New Weird "It's been far too long since I've read a collection of horror stories that actually disturbed me. This one did. Like the bastard child of Chuck Palahniuk and Clive Barker, Doug Warrick writes feverishly, like a man on a charnel train that is relentlessly barreling its way through corrupt and ugly terrain, heading for some great, unknowable horror. Herein lies a gruesome gathering of Gothic nightmares fashioned from Warrick's lyrical, affecting, mesmeric prose. One of the finest collections I've read in quite some time." --Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Turtle Boy, Kin, and Nemesis Reviews: Intellectually surreal and emotionally disturbing, Douglas F. Warrick's collection of tales marks a superb introduction for readers to the Apex Voices line of fiction. —Beauty in Ruins Now, if you like your fiction easy, simple and fun, then I will just tell you to stop now. You won’t like this stuff. His stories are dense and, at times, intensely painful. This is not good time reading. At the same time, it is damn good. —Horrornews.net

Fortnite Battle Royale for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, and Mac transports gamers to an island that’s in the direct path of a strange and deadly storm. This free edition of the game is a quest for survival—as one hundred players get trapped on the island, but only one will ultimately survive. Players must explore their surroundings to gather resources, and then build protective shelters, plus locate weapons and loot (medical packs, potions, ammo, etc.)—all while attempting to defeat enemies in battle as the storm approaches, slowly making more and more of the island inhabitable. This unofficial strategy guide for gamers between the ages of 8 and 13 provides the tips and information needed to greatly improve their chances for survival. It includes proven strategies for defeating opponents using weapons, tools, resources, and structures. The guide focuses on the seven core elements of gameplay: 1. Character Section, Customization, and Improvement 2. Parachuting from the Battle Bus, and Choosing an Ideal Landing Location 3. Safe Exploration of the Island and Avoiding the Storm 4. Finding and Gathering the Best Weapons, Ammo, and Loot 5. Acquiring Resources (Wood, Brick, and Metal) 6. Building Fortresses and Structures 7. Surviving Combat to Become the Last Person Standing Because Fortnite: Battle Royale never offers the same play experience twice (because how the action unfolds depends heavily on the actions of the other 99 human players also on the island), this unofficial guide teaches players to adapt their offensive and defensive fighting strategies as needed to dramatically increase their chance of survival during each and every action-packed battle. This full-color, information-packed, 98-page guide is expertly designed to help first-time players greatly shorten the game’s learning curve and allows readers to abandon their “Noob” status quickly, while dramatically improving their fighting, building, exploration, and survival skills. With limited training activities and tutorials built into the game, Fortnite Battle Royale Hacks is a “must read” for Fortnite players.
