Amy Lennox doesn't know quite what to expect when she and her mother pick up and leave Germany for Scotland, heading to her mother's childhood home of Lennox House on the island of Stormsay. Amy's grandmother, Lady Mairead, insists that Amy must read while she resides at Lennox House—but not in the usual way. It turns out that Amy is a book jumper, able to leap into a story and interact with the world inside. As thrilling as Amy's new power is, it also brings danger: someone is stealing from the books she visits, and that person may be after her life. Teaming up with fellow book jumper Will, Amy vows to get to the bottom of the thefts—at whatever cost.

I romanzi di H.G. Wells sono giochi fantastici e, insieme, una lente di ingrandimento sulle paure della società postindustriale; un punto di vista ancora oggi attuale. Chi mai potrebbe credere alla storia raccontata da Edward Prendick? Stando alle sue memorie, scampato a un naufragio nelle acque del Pacifico, sarebbe stato tratto in salvo da un vascello che trasportava animali esotici, comandato da un capitano dedito all’alcol. Su quel vascello avrebbe conosciuto un tale Montgomery e il suo deforme servitore M’ling, insieme ai quali sarebbe sbarcato su un’isola vulcanica abitata da esseri singolari e spaventosi, a metà tra uomini e bestie. L’unica presenza umana sull’isola sarebbe stata quella del dottor Moreau, uno scienziato specializzato in perversi esperimenti di vivisezione dai quali quelle strane creature avrebbero preso vita. Ma, a quanto racconta Prendick, non tutto sarebbe andato secondo i piani: gli uomini-bestia avrebbero cominciato a maturare una propria coscienza e si sarebbero ribellati al loro creatore. A salvare Prendick da una morte certa quanto atroce, sarebbe stato un battello alla deriva con due cadaveri a bordo, grazie al quale l’uomo avrebbe finalmente ripreso il mare. A Londra, dove è riuscito a tornare, sono in molti a credere che Edward Prendick sia solo un pazzo... Un’avventura imperdibile ai confini del mondo e della conoscenza.

How far will four friends go for immortality? This novel is Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author “Robert Silverberg at his very best” (George R. R. Martin). After Eli, a scholarly college student, finds and translates an ancient manuscript called The Book of Skulls, he and his friends embark on a cross-country trip to Arizona in search of a legendary monastery where they hope to find the secret of immortality. On the journey with Eli, there’s Timothy, an upper-class WASP with a trust fund and a solid sense of entitlement; Ned, a cynical poet and alienated gay man; and Oliver, a Kansas farm boy who escaped his rural origins and now wants to escape death. If they can find the House of Skulls where immortal monks allegedly reside, they’ll undergo a rigorous initiation. But do those eight grinning skulls mean the joke will be on them? For a sacrifice will be required. Two must die so that two may live forever . . . Stretching the boundary between science fiction and horror, Robert Silverberg masterfully probes deeper existential questions of morality, brotherhood, and self-determined destiny in what Harlan Ellison refers to as “one of my favorite nightmare novels.” This ebook features an illustrated biography of Robert Silverberg including rare images from the author’s personal collection.

This volume collects together all nine of Kipling’s delightful stories about Mowgli, the feral man-cub whose adventures sat at the heart of The Jungle Book. Raised by wolves under the watchful eyes of the pack leader, Akela, Mowgli is mentored by the cunning panther, Bagheera, and taught the Law of the Jungle by the strict but kindly bear, Baloo. But the jungle is full of dangers and Mowgli must fight to survive. The tiger, Shere Khan, has sworn to kill him, the sinister monkey residents of the Cold Lairs wish to kidnap him, and his home is threatened by the Cobra and the Red Dog. And, ultimately, as an adult, he must return to his own kind; a journey perfectly rendered by Kipling in his first-ever, but little-known, Mowgli story, In the Rukh. This Macmillan Collector’s library edition is beautifully illustrated by Stuart Tresilian and includes an afterword by the editor Marcus Clapham.
