And today, we give you two lots of more. More Mars. More weird. More Solaris.

Champion of Mars

Champion of Mars by Guy Haley is OUT NOW in paperback and on Kindle in the UK and Ireland, and in paperback and on Kindle in North America!

In the far future, Mars is dying a second time. 

The Final War of men and spirits is beginning. 

In a last bid for peace, disgraced champion Yoechakenon Val Mora and his spirit lover Kaibeli are set free from the Arena to find the long-missing Librarian of Mars, the only hope to save mankind. 

In the near future, a scientist running from a painful past, joins the Mars colonisation effort, cataloguing the remnants of its biosphere before it is swept away by the terraforming programme. When an artefact is discovered deep in the caverns of the red planet, the consequences ripple throughout time, affecting Holland’s present, the distant days of Yoechakanon, and the eras that bridge the aeons between.

Stephen Baxter himself said of Champion of Mars: “A novel with an ambition on the scale of Olympus Mons itself, and it delivers. Recommended.”

Guy answered some questions from us about his take on the Red Planet and also gives you, the reader, an exclusive extract on his blog.

Deadfall Hotel

Deadfall Hotel by Steve Rasnic Tem is OUT NOW in paperback and Kindle in the UK and Ireland, and in paperback and Kindle in North America!

£7.99 (UK) ISBN 978-1-907992-82-7 $8.99/$10.99 (US & CAN) 978-1-907992-83-4

The Deadfall Hotel is where our nightmares go, where the dead pause to rest between worlds, and where Richard Carter and his daughter Serena go to rediscover life — if the things at the hotel don’t kill them first.

The product of nearly twenty years of work, Deadfall Hotel is arguably Solaris’ most ambitious and striking title to date. Steve Rasnic Tem’s entrancing and powerful prose combines the atmosphere of Edward Gorey with the phantasmagoric richness of Mervyn Peake, creating a unique work of genius that will leave you spellbound.

Explore for yourself what may be the Bram Stoker, British Fantasy and World Fantasy award-winning author's finest creation to date with an extended excerpt from the novel, courtesy of Weird Fiction Review.

Terror Tree said: "This is no ordinary novel. It is not a comfortable read and it is incredibly surreal. However, it is a book that must be read."

"A dark and moving story of love, loss and change, with a posse of horror kittens thrown into the mix," said The Guardian.

< And Spooky Reads said "...just when you think you’ve found the lay of the land in this most rich and fertile of imaginative plains, and you’re thrown a twist or turn, or simple line of speech masquerading as so much more. Just when you think you’ve nailed a certain style or emotion in the text and again it buckles and surprises."

Will there be epub versions for the non-Kindle users? Or are we expected to crack the DRM and convert them?
