Due to this ability, Noah feels the responsibility to prevent bad things from happening to his friends and family. Unfortunately, every time he informs his family of his visions, he is ignored or considered to be making up stories.
When Noah realizes his autistic brother, Sean, is missing during a terrible rainstorm, he reveals his vision of Sean’s location to his grandmother who immediately dismisses the information as a dream. Instead of listening to his grandmother and staying at the house, Noah leaves on his horse to locate his brother Sean.
Will Noah finally be able to convince his family of the accuracy of his visions by finding his brother before Sean is further injured? Experience the dreams and visions with Noah as he struggles to fit in and find his place within his family.
Together in one volume for the first time—H.G. Wells’s seminal science fiction classic The War of the Worlds, with the contemporaneous, unauthorized, but extremely popular sequel Edison’s Conquest of Mars, as well as Wells’s own, much later conceptual sequel, Star Begotten.
How often do you watch the sky at night? Ever see bright streaks of light exploding from the red planet? Get ready for adventurous reading as you embark on a journey to find out just how these alien invasions play out!

U.S. President William McKinley, Queen Victoria, Kaiser Wilhelm II and Emperor Mutsuhito unite to plan an attack on Mars. Led by American inventor Thomas Edison, a group of scientists develop new technologies based on what earlier Martian visitors left behind. They design and build a fleet of space ships for the pre-emptive move. What will happen when the two opposing forces meet?
The protagonist of Star Begotten, Joseph Davis, is an author of popular histories, who becomes suspicious that he and his family have been exposed to a Martian influence of another sort and are in the process of being changed. What might that influence be?

“the Father of the Modern Mystery, the originator of the detective story, the man who created an entire genre”
—Kristine Kathryn Rusch, USA Today best-selling author, from her Foreword
Fallen gods and nameless cosmic beings greater and older than the gods themselves. Ancient forms of life and worship on earth that far predate human civilization, and of which little remains. These are the central elements of what was, perhaps, the first shared universe of modern science fiction and fantasy. Before the Marvel or DC Universes, before Star Trek or Star Wars, H.P. Lovecraft created the Cthulhu Mythos, and shared it with his fellow pulp writers to create a shared mythology for their weird fiction. Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan the Barbarian, was one of those good friends.
Scholars, Shamans, wizards, heroes, warriors, and adventurers from ancient lands right up to the early twentieth century face off against the darkness that came before. These are the Cthulhu stories of Robert E. Howard.
A chilling tale of African drums and human souls from #1 international best-selling author Kevin J. Anderson and legendary Rush lyricist and drummer Neil Peart.
Early in their three decades of correspondence, Neil Peart sent Kevin J. Anderson extensive descriptions and travelogues of his adventures bicycling solo across Africa. Peart painted a vivid and unsettling landscape as memorable as the lyrics to his songs.
Anderson, award-winning and best-selling fantasy and science fiction author, used those descriptions as the backdrop for plotting an intense, atmospheric dark fantasy story that followed Peart’s experiences, though with a much more ominous twist. The two used their respective strengths to weave a memorable tale that will linger long after the last page.
This special illustrated edition includes Anderson’s new introduction, written after Peart’s death on January 7, 2020, as well as the original Afterword Peart wrote for the story.
