UK – Broken Monsters Signing

fpuk081214Forbidden Planet are delighted to welcome back LAUREN BEUKES, reading from and signing her latest novel BROKEN MONSTERS at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Tuesday, 12th August, 2014 from 1:00 –  2:00 PM.

A detective facing the most harrowing case of her career. A failed artist with a bizarre new well of creativity. A child discovering the grim realities of adult desire. A writer walking a dangerous path to online fame. A city on the edge of ruin. Brought together by a killer opening doors into the dark heart of humanity… Detective Gabi Versado no longer believes in justice. She’s seen too much stupidity, corruption and just plain badness. But never anything like this. And now it’s bleeding into her life. Detroit is the decaying corpse of the American Dream. Motor-city. Murder-city. Now a killer with the touch of an artist is turning it into the worst kind of nightmare

Lauren Beukes’ ’The Shining Girls’ become a major Sunday Times bestseller in the summer of 2013, and was also a Richard & Judy Bookclub pick. Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way are also adapting The Shining Girls for TV. Her second novel Zoo City won the Arthur C Clarke Award in 2011, whilst also being shortlisted for several other awards. She was also listed as one of the Guardian’s top 10 African writers for 2013.

There is an imbalance in the universe. And, since his latest return from oblivion, Thanos himself feels… incomplete. Now the so-called Mad Titan would put both wrongs right. A pilgrimage to Death’s dark domain, and the revelatory waters of the Infinity Well, leads Thanos on a new quest, with a once sworn enemy at his side. A crusade that will bring confrontation with the Silver Surfer and the galaxy’s mightiest heroes, the Annihilators. An odyssey that will change everything. Cosmic maestro Jim Starlin returns to his signature character in a tale of death and rebirth that will transform the Marvel Universe once more!
