♥ Book Title : The Mammoth Book Of the Mummy
☯ Full Synopsis : "Human mummies, preserved by both accident and intent, have been found on every continent except Antarctica. These enigmatic remains of humanity have fascinated people for centuries. Shrouded in history they have acquired meaning and symbolism quite separate from their value as a source of historic knowledge, inspiring tales of reanimation, reincarnation, loves that outlive death, and curses that bring vengeance from the past. As a figure of horror and the supernatural the mummy has attained iconic status in the popular imagination. The Mammoth Book of the Mummy presents a collection of tales written for the twenty-first century - including some brand-new stories - that explore, subvert and reinvent the mummy mythos; some delve into the past, others explore alternative histories, and some bring mummies into our own world. Here you will find stories of revenge, romance, monsters and mayhem, ranging freely across time periods, genres and styles, by Kage Baker, Gail Carriger, Paul Cornell, Carole Nelson Douglas, Terry Dowling, Noreen Doyle, Steve Duffy, Karen Joy Fowler, Will Hill, Stephen Graham Jones, John Langan, Joe R.

♥ Book Title : Les Voies d'Anubis
☯ Full Synopsis : "1983. Lorsque le professeur Brendan Doyle accepte de donner une conférence sur le poète anglais Coleridge, il est loin d’imaginer qu’il ne va pas tarder à le rencontrer en personne... en 1810 ! Car après avoir accepté l’offre d’un millionnaire ayant percé les mystères du voyage dans le temps, le voilà plongé dans une aventure rocambolesque, traversant un Londres peuplé de bohémiens, de mendiants douteux et de sorciers terrifiants, tel ce clown macabre qui règne sur le monde souterrain. Et pour couronner le tout, Doyle ne peut revenir à son époque, à moins de déjouer les plans malfaisants des mages égyptiens qui veulent ramener leurs anciens dieux à la vie. Mais osera-t-il prendre le risque de changer le cours de l’Histoire ? Mêlant les thèmes du voyage temporel, du mythe du loup-garou et de la magie noire égyptienne dans le Londres victorien, ce roman, qui a remporté les prestigieux prix Apollo et Philip K. Dick, est le grand classique à l’origine du steampunk. « Une intrigue diaboliquement efficace, une ingéniosité grisante et un rythme d’enfer : ce roman est une performance de virtuose, un feu d’artifice aveuglant. » London Times"Article| Tim Powers| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Under the Pyramids (Fantasy and Horror Classics)
☯ Full Synopsis : "This early work by H. P. Lovecraft was originally published in 1924. Born in 1890 in Rhode Island, USA, Lovecraft began writing at a very young age, quickly developing a deep and abiding interest in science. In 1913, Lovecraft joined the UAPA (United Amateur Press Association) but it was four years later, in 1917, that he began to focus on fiction, producing such well-known early stories as 'Dagon' and 'A Reminiscence of Dr. Samuel Johnson'. However, it was during the last decade of his life that Lovecraft produced his most notable works, such as 'the Dunwich Horror' and 'The Call of Cthulhu' which subsequently earned him his place as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th century. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions."Article| H. P. Lovecraft| Statement ..."
