The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy
Star Wars, A New Hope
With an evil empire ruling the galaxy, hope for the future lies in the hands of a small band of rebels led by Luke, Leia and Han, and Alexandra Bracken tells the story of A New Hope from their points of view. Slightly off-mint. Age 9+
The Mammoth Book of Kaiju
Inspired by the Japanese tradition of Kaiju (‘strange beast’) – from which the original Godzilla emerged – this anthology of tales introduces a new breed of city-destroying monsters, including Gary MacMahon’s terror from the deep and Frank Wu’s 80-foot, fire-breathing lizard.
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect, hitchhiking around the galaxy after the demise of Earth, are in trouble: the Improbability Drive fails in their host’s ship, Arthur has jammed the computer by asking it for a cup of tea and the restaurant is 576,000 million miles away. Part two of the five-part Hitchhiker trilogy.
