UK – The Girl with All the Gifts Signing

M. R. CareyM. R. Carey launches THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS, at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 11th January from 1:00 – 2:00 pm!

A terrible, wonderful, heart-breaking story about hope and humanity and a young girl who wants to save the world, this is the must-read book of 2014.

Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her ‘our little genius’. Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don’t like her. She jokes that she won’t bite, but they don’t laugh.

A heart-stopping, page-turning thriller filled with tension, action and emotion, The Girl with all the Gifts is a truly special book that will capture the imagination of readers everywhere. Intelligent, speculative fiction with an emotional heart and wide-ranging appeal, it is this year’s The Shining Girls… the one book everyone will be talking about.

M. R. Carey is a pen name for an established British writer of both novels and comic books, with several New York Times best-selling graphic novels and one Hollywood movie screenplay to his credit. The Girl with all the Gifts will also be a film – the author wrote the screenplay simultaneously

UK – NumberCruncher Signing

numbercrunher.jpg.size-230

SIMON SPURRIER signs his new graphic novel NUMBERCRUNCHER at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 15th January at 6:00pm.

A time-twisting romantic thriller-noir metaphysical black comedy from the smash-hit writer of X-Men Legacy and Crossed: Wish You Were Here!

Numbercruncher is the story of a lovesick, dying Mathematician who cheats the rules of the Afterlife to be reincarnated within his lover’s lifetime… and faces the full force of Karmic Accountancy as a result. One Karmic agent – the surly Bastard Zane – must stop the time-twisting romance before the Mathematician can escape Existential Justice!

Simon Spurrier was physically born in the 80s but profiles an existential/curmudgeonly age of 103.

Working as an Art Director for the BBC in the armpit of the millennium, he took an unscripted tangent into the murky depths of Making Stuff Up On Paper and has since become an award winning author and graphic novelist.

His latest crime novel, A Serpent Uncoiled, was released to great critical acclaim in 2011, while his comics works includes Judge Dredd, Crossed, Gutsville, Six-Gun Gorilla, and the all-new, all-weird X-Men Legacy – part of the “Marvel Now” initiative.
