Celeste wants to give her mother something special — but what? As she drifts off to sleep, Celeste is swept away. Up, up, into the sky, where the sun, the moon, and the stars are eagerly awaiting her arrival. How grand! They receive her with such kindness that Celeste positively sparkles with delight. And on her way home, it comes to her: the perfect gift. Chosen with care and wrapped with love, it’s just what Celeste was hoping to find.

Comments Off on UK – Ring of Roses Signing

ring of rosesDAS PETROU and JOHN WATKISS will be signing RING OF ROSES at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 29th July from 6:00 – 7:00 PM.

THE X-FILES MEETS THE DA VINCI CODE!

This is London, 1991. Lawyer Samuel Waterhouse investigates a ghoulish murder mystery set in alternate English history that’s all religious mania, secret societies and the plague. Imagine an England under religious rule – a rule so iron-fisted that science and technology has been set back decades…

Das has worked in both film and advertising as a conceptual artist and writer for clients as varied as Walt Disney, Saatchi & Saatchi, Universal Pictures, BBH, and the BBC. He also worked at Neal Adams’ Continuity Associates in New York, and wrote a JAMES BOND series for Dark Horse, as well as being an art director at Cartoon Network. When writing RING OF ROSES he was working on a feature for Steven Spielberg, and developing the TV series, TALES OF BEATRIX POTTER. He is currently completing his first novel, a supernatural thriller called WINTER OF THE SUCCUBUS.

John is a respected fine art painter, comic book artist, and visual development artist in film. After working on Ring of Roses, he moved to LA to develop TARZAN and ATLANTIS for Walt Disney. He has also worked for world-famous companies, including Saatchi & Saatchi, Ridley Scott Associates, Francis Ford Coppola, Dreamworks, Twentieth Century Fox and Disney. John drew SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE, BATMAN, and DEADMAN for Vertigo. He is now living in the UK, and working on SURGEON X, a project he is developing as both a comic book and TV series for Sony Pictures.

NY – Corey Taylor Signing

Comments Off on NY – Corey Taylor Signing

coreytalorCorey Taylor appear at Book Revue on Thursday, July 9th, 2015 at 7:00 PM to speak about and sign his new book, You’re Making Me Hate You.

In the tradition of the late great George Carlin, New York Times bestselling author and lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour Corey Taylor sounds off in hilarious fashion about the many vagaries of modern life that piss him off.

Whether it’s people’s rude behavior in restaurants and malls, the many indignities of air travel, eye-searingly terrible fashion choices, dangerously clueless drivers, and—most of all—the sorry state of much modern music, Taylor’s humor and insight cover civil society’s seeming decline—sparing no one along the way, least of all himself.

Holding nothing back and delivered in Taylor’s inimitable voice,You’re Making Me Hate You is a cathartic critique of the strange world in which we find ourselves.

IMPORTANT!
All books signed at Book Revue events must be purchased at Book Revue. If you purchase the book prior to the event please save your receipt. If you have purchased the book from somewhere else you can still get your book signed, we just ask that you make a purchase in our store of equal or greater value to that of the book.

Ernest Cline, author of Ready Player One, signs his new book at Powell’s City of Books on both Burnside and Cedar Hills on Wednesday, July 15, 2015!

Armada (Crown) is an inventive, heartwarming, and completely nerdtastic adventure from Ernest Cline, bestselling author of Ready Player One. It’s just another day of high school for Zack Lightman. He’s daydreaming through his boring math class, with just one more month to go until graduation and freedom. Then he glances out his classroom window and spots the flying saucer. At first, Zack thinks he’s going crazy. A minute later, he’s sure of it. Because the UFO he’s staring at is straight out of the videogame he plays every night, a popular online flight simulator called Armada — in which gamers protect the earth from alien invaders. But what Zack’s seeing is all too real. And his skills — as well as those of millions of gamers across the world — are going to be needed to save the earth from what’s about to befall it.

Please note: Cline will join us for a lunchtime book signing at our downtown store at 12:30 PM and an evening event (reading and book signing) at our Cedar Hills Crossing location at 7:00 PM.
