New Titles – w/e 19th February 2011

Annoyingly, Saturday’s delivery hasn’t arrived; I assume it’ll trail in on Monday 21st.

in hardback:

Jasper FfordeOne of Our Thursdays is Missing the return of Thursday Next, except she’s gone missing, and another must be recruited! Embargoed until the 22nd, I’m afraid, as is the new Steven Erickson, The Crippled God. (well, the 21st for his book)

McSweeney’s Issue 36 – collection of booklets in a cubic cardboard head who looks a little reminiscent of the cover of In the Court of the Crimson King by King Crimson! It looks great, and when you flip open the top of his head there are leaflets, booklets, postcards, etc. Chapters of a novel by Michael Chabon. Even a screenplay for a comedy featuring Mike Myers and a tandem! Also a roll of some strange fortune cookie inserts!

Douglas CleggIsis short tale of the supernatural, with b&w illustrations by Glenn Chadbourne

Mark ChadbournThe Silver Skull part 1 of his Swords of Albion series; part 2 came in last month. Elizabethan fantasy.
