Ridley Pearson’s Kingdom Keepers VII: The Insider: The Kingdom Keepers’ senior year in high school is almost over. For more than three years, things have been quiet. Their battles are long behind them, they agree, the threat to the Disney realm silenced—albeit at great cost. But inside the catacombs of the Aztec temple where Finn Whitman faced down his nemesis the monstrous Chernabog, a new threat brews.
Jonathan Stroud’s Screaming Staircase: A sinister Problem has occurred in London: all nature of ghosts, haunts, spirits, and specters are appearing throughout the city, and they aren’t exactly friendly. Only young people have the psychic abilities required to see-and eradicate-these supernatural foes. Many different Psychic Detection Agencies have cropped up to handle the dangerous work, and they are in fierce competition for business. In The Screaming Staircase, the plucky and talented Lucy Carlyle teams up with Anthony Lockwood, the charismatic leader of Lockwood & Co, a small agency that runs independent of any adult supervision. After an assignment leads to both a grisly discovery and a disastrous end, Lucy, Anthony, and their sarcastic colleague, George, are forced to take part in the perilous investigation of Combe Carey Hall, one of the most haunted houses in England. Will Lockwood & Co. survive the Hall’s legendary Screaming Staircase and Red Room to see another day? Readers who enjoyed the action, suspense, and humor in Jonathan Stroud’s internationally best-selling Bartimaeus books will be delighted to find the same ingredients, combined with deliciously creepy scares, in his thrilling and chilling Lockwood & Co. series.
Rick Riordan’s House of Hades: At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy’s instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea’s forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors from both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape? The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.

Eoin Colfer signs at Brookline Booksmith on Tuesday, September 13th at 7pm!
In his adult crime-writing debut, Eoin Colfer, author of the beloved Artemis Fowl series, retains his sharp pacing and madcap style in a decidedly grown-up tale. When people start to get murdered around Irish strip club bouncer Dan, he becomes an unwilling detective. Classic noir mixed with Colfer’s absurd humor mean this is sure to entertain.

Eoin Colfer signs And Another Thing
Wednesday 14 October 18:00 – 19:00
Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR
In a record-breaking event in 1980, the late, great Douglas Adams did a legendary signing at Forbidden Planet on Denmark Street, London – a signing that took up half-a-dozen pages in his biography.
It’s a very special moment for us to be welcoming Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl), signing the sixth book in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy And Another Thing at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Wednesday 14th October 6 – 7pm.
Adams himself said that the Hitchhiker’s series deserved a sixth book to end the story on an upbeat note; Eoin Colfer, best known for his wonderful Artemis Fowl series, is true follower of Adams’ legacy with his views of the absurdities of life, the universe and everything. There is no better person to be taking Arthur, Zaphod and Marvin out into pastures new.
A lifelong Hitchhiker fan, he said, ‘Being given the chance to write this book is like suddenly being offered the superpower of your choice. For years I have been finishing this incredible story in my head and now I have the opportunity to do it in the real world.’ Prepare to be amazed!
To commemorate Forbidden’s Planet’s affection for Hitchhiker, Penguin Books are kindly offering a FREE Limited Edition signed poster to the first 150 guests
