New Releases Tuesday: In the Realms of Sci Fi and Fantasy...

Peter & Max: A Fables Novel by Bill Willingham (Author), Steve Leialoha (Illustrator)
Product Description

A new stand-alone FABLES NOVEL from award-winning and wildly acclaimed author, Bill Willingham.

This story stars Peter Piper and his incorrigible brother Max in a tale about jealousy, betrayal and revenge. Set in two distinct time periods, prepare to travel back to medieval times and learn the tragic back-story of the Piper family, a medieval-era family of traveling minstrels. Then, jump into the present to follow a tale of espionage as Peter Piper slowly hunts down his evil brother for a heinous crime, pitting Peter's talents as a master thief against Max's dark magical powers.

Based on the long-running and award-winning comic book series FABLES, PETER AND MAX is its own tale. Readers don't have to be familiar with the comics to fully enjoy and understand this book.

Deep Kiss of Winter by Kresley Cole (Author), Gena Showalter (Author)
Today’s selection comes from the realm of the paranormal. Aleaha Love can be anyone -- literally. With only skin-to-skin contact, she can change her appearance, assume any identity. Her newest identity switch has made her an AIR (alien investigation and removal) agent and sends her on a mission to capture a group of otherworldly warriors. Only she becomes the captured. Breean, a golden-skinned commander known for his iron will who is at once dangerous and soul-shatteringly seductive, threatens her new life. Because for the first time, Aleaha only wants to be herself....
Sounds intriguing…yes?

And Another Thing... by Eoin Colfer (Author)
And Another Thing . . . is the rather unexpected, but very welcome, sixth installment of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. It features a pantheon of unemployed gods, everyone's favorite renegade Galactic President, a lovestruck green alien, an irritating computer, and at least one very large slab of cheese.

There have been so many good books coming out, my wish list just gets longer and longer, lol. I just got the new Merlin's Dragon installment by TA Barron - can't wait to read it! Right now I'm lovin' Gayle's Freezer Burn. She is very talented!

I just bought my first book from sci-fi writer Orson Scott Card called Ender's Game. Love it so far.

Hi Stephen! Oh, I've heard good things about that one - haven't had a chance to read it yet, though.
