The Airfix company was formed in 1939 and, since it produced its first plastic kit in 1949, grew to be the United Kingdom's leading model kit manufacturer. Several generations of young and young-at-heart modellers have made Airfix kits and, despite turbulent times in the 1970s and 1980s when the company changed ownership several times, in the twenty-first century it goes from strength to strength under the wing of Hornby Hobbies. The 1960s and early 1970s might be called the vintage years of Airfix, when some of their best and most popular kits were produced. For ten years up to 1974, renowned artist Roy Cross produced some of the stunning paintings that appear on the boxes of Airfix kits of the era. Roy set the standard for such artwork, to the extent that many are still used today, four decades later. Roy Cross's earlier book, The Vintage Years of Airfix Box Art, contained a host of the paintings he prepared for Airfix, but the unearthing of many more images in old Airfix files has enabled this entirely fresh look at Roy's work to be presented, coinciding with the seventy-fifth anniversary of the first Airfix kit. Thus the remainder of Roy's ten years' work for Airfix is reproduced here. This new compilation features many rare illustrations as well as studies and sketches that were not accepted at the time, and is beautifully illustrated with 180 colour artworks.

The #1 New York Times bestselling author's ultimate edition of his wildly successful first novel featuring his "preferred text"—and including his special Neverwhere tale "How the Marquis Got His Coat Back" Published in 1997, Neil Gaiman's darkly hypnotic first novel, Neverwhere, heralded the arrival of a major talent and became a touchstone of urban fantasy. Over the years, a number of versions were produced both in the U.S. and the U.K. Now Gaiman's preferred edition of his classic novel reconciles these works and reinstates a number of scenes cut from the original published books. Neverwhere is the story of Richard Mayhew, a young London businessman with a good heart and an ordinary life, which is changed forever when he discovers a girl bleeding on the sidewalk. He stops to help her—an act of kindness that plunges him into a world he never dreamed existed. Slipping through the cracks of reality, Richard lands in the Neverwhere—a London of shadows and darkness, monsters and saints, murderers and angels that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth. The Neverwhere is home to Door, the mysterious girl Richard helped in the London Above. Door, a noblewoman whose family has been murdered, is on a quest to find the agent that slaughtered her family and thwart the destruction of this underworld kingdom. If Richard is ever to return to his former life, he must join the journey to save Door's world—and find a way to survive. A hallucinatory fantasia of mystery, mythology, and terror that "draws equally from George Lucas, Monty Python, Doctor Who, and John Milton" (USA Today), Neverwhere is an "Alice in Wonderland with a punk edge" (Poppy Z. Brite), "that is both the stuff of dreams and nightmares" (San Diego Union-Tribune).

At once funny, wistful and unsettling, Sum is a dazzling exploration of unexpected afterlives—each presented as a vignette that offers a stunning lens through which to see ourselves in the here and now. In one afterlife, you may find that God is the size of a microbe and unaware of your existence. In another version, you work as a background character in other people’s dreams. Or you may find that God is a married couple, or that the universe is running backward, or that you are forced to live out your afterlife with annoying versions of who you could have been. With a probing imagination and deep understanding of the human condition, acclaimed neuroscientist David Eagleman offers wonderfully imagined tales that shine a brilliant light on the here and now. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Deep Ocean Six
Author: Nancy Osa
Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.
Someone is draining the Overworld oceans of resources . . . but to what end? It could be a ploy by the griefer army to draw Captain Rob and his cavalry members away from the United Biomes of the Overworld capital, which they risked their very identities to defend. Or it could be theft on a scale so grand that only the deepest of oceans can contain it. At the same time, it seems no coincidence that priceless relics and one-of-a-kind gemstones go missing from the new Overworld museum. The spectacular monument to the history of the free world is a worth a fortune. Housing the valuables of the Overworld makes Capital City Museum a target for every rogue player—and for the Griefer Imperial Army, now led by a gang of villains spawned by Lady Craven. When key pieces of UBO heritage are stolen, the troopers of Battalion Zero must pool brains, brawn, and every bit of luck they have to recover them. The six friends must pull off the perfect heist: Captain Rob, leader and delegator ... Corporal Frida, master of stealth and disguise . . . Quartermaster Jools, strategist and techie extraordinaire . . . Sergeant at Arms Turner, muscle personified ... Artilleryman Stormie, terrain expert . . . and Master of Horses Kim, the “bronc whisperer” all work together to recover the UBO’s secret treasures in this tempestuous fourth book in the Defenders of the Overworld series.
