The final volume of this most elegant of FABLES spin-offs is here! Rose Red reigns over a New Camelot, while Snow White hunts for the soul of her slain husband, Bigby Wolf. Yes, it's a wild time for the Fables...the ones who look human, that is. Their four-legged, furry, finned, feathered and flowery fellows, however, are all stuck twiddling their appendages on the Farm-a fate that stinks worse than fertilizer. All except Reynard, of course. That wily fox has finagled his way into Rose Red's service as one of New Camelot's knights, complete with a glamour-a magic spell that enables him to take on human form at will. His tall tales of derring-do might be a lot of hot air, but they're sparking a small-scale rebellion on the Farm as the cooped-up inhabitants agitate for glamours of their own. The answer can be found in THE CLAMOUR FOR GLAMOUR-collecting FAIREST #27-33 and lovingly crafted by Mark Buckingham, Bill Willingham, Russ Braun and Meghan Hetrick!
Follows the adventures of storybook and nursery rhyme characters who live side-by-side with humans.

"Scary as hell and hypnotic. I couldn't put it down...I'd grab it if I were you." --Stephen King A criminal mastermind creates violent tableaus in abandoned Detroit warehouses in Lauren Beukes's new genre-bending novel of suspense. Detective Gabriella Versado has seen a lot of bodies. But this one is unique even by Detroit's standards: half boy, half deer, somehow fused together. As stranger and more disturbing bodies are discovered, how can the city hold on to a reality that is already tearing at its seams? If you're Detective Versado's geeky teenage daughter, Layla, you commence a dangerous flirtation with a potential predator online. If you're desperate freelance journalist Jonno, you do whatever it takes to get the exclusive on a horrific story. If you're Thomas Keen, known on the street as TK, you'll do what you can to keep your homeless family safe--and find the monster who is possessed by the dream of violently remaking the world. If Lauren Beukes's internationally bestselling The Shining Girls was a time-jumping thrill ride through the past, her Broken Monsters is a genre-redefining thriller about broken cities, broken dreams, and broken people trying to put themselves back together again.

A frighteningly persuasive, high-tech fable, this novel follows the lives of four narrators living in an alternative futuristic Cape Town, South Africa. Kendra, an art-school dropout, brands herself for a nanotech marketing program; Lerato, an ambitious AIDS baby, plots to defect from her corporate employers; Tendeka, a hot-headed activist, is becoming increasingly rabid; and Toby, a roguish blogger, discovers that the video games he plays for cash are much more than they seem. On a collision course that will rewire their lives, this story crackles with bold and infectious ideas, connecting a ruthless corporate-apartheid government with video games, biotech attack dogs, slippery online identities, a township soccer school, shocking cell phones, addictive branding, and genetically modified art. Taking hedonistic trends in society to their ultimate conclusions, this tale paints anything but a forecasted utopia, satirically undermining the reified idea of progress as society's white knight.
