Hellhole by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. AndersonHellhole: There’s No Place Like Home

By Kevin J. Anderson

Hellhole: the place to go when there’s nowhere else to go.

Who says the galaxy has to be a pleasant place to settle down?  I grew up reading space opera stories set on strange alien planets filled with lush flora and exotic creatures, steamy dinosaur-filled jungles on Venus, bleak but poignant lost civilizations on Mars.



Other Kingdoms by Richard MathesonRichard Matheson’s Other Kingdoms

By Greg Cox, Consulting Editor

Richard Matheson recently celebrated his 85th birthday. For an author whose first novel (Someone is Bleeding) was published nearly sixty years ago, Matheson has more going on today than many authors half his age. His story, “Steel,” which was previously filmed as a classic episode of the original Twilight Zone television series (you know, the one with Lee Marvin fighting the robot boxer), is now being made into a major motion picture, Real Steel, due out in October.



The Dark Zone by Dom TestaInto the Home Stretch

By Dom Testa

Writing the fourth volume of a six-book series places you squarely on the turn heading into the home stretch. Your characters are established, the direction is firmly in place, and you just know that the overall series climax is ready to poke its head out. But you’ve also created a subliminal sense of pace that behaves like respiration; your story breathes in, breathes out.



The Dawn Country by Kathleen O'Neal Gear and W. Michael GearThe Iroquoian Influence on our Democracy

By Kathleen O’Neal Gear and W. Michael Gear

The Dawn Country is the second book in the People of the Longhouse quartet, and is about the formation of the League of the Iroquois—the Haudenosaunee—around six hundred years ago.  This is a pivotal time in American prehistory—a time of warfare—but the violence was the catalyst for a peace movement that would change the course of world history.  The three principal figures involved in this story were: Dekanawida, Hiyawento, and Jigonsaseh.



The Season of Passage by Christopher PikeTwo by Pike

By Susan Chang, Senior Editor

Most of us remember Christopher Pike for his bestselling young adult horror—books like Slumber Party, Chain Letter, and The Last Vampire. But Christopher Pike doesn’t only write YA horror. Tor has published his adult fiction since the early 1990s, including The Season of Passage and Sati, both of which we are reissuing with stunning new covers in April.
