New Releases (December 2017)
The Albigensian Treasure
by Maurice Magre - adapted by Brian Stableford - cover by Mike Hoffman. READ AN EXCERPT - 280 p. - US$ 22.95
Maurice Magre (1877-1941) was one of the most far-ranging and extravagant French writers of fantastic fiction in the first half of the 20th century, and perhaps the finest of them, because of the fertility and versatility of his imagination and the manner and purpose for which he deployed it. This volume is the ninth of a series of twelve dedicated to Magre’s works. In The Albigensian Treasure (1938), we follow the adventures of Michel de Bramevaque, who launched himself in search of the Holy Grail after receiving a supernatural injunction. Magre, with elegant simplicity, leads us through a series of adventures and trials on the quest for the sacred artifact hidden by his Albigensian ancestors in the Languedoc soil.
Jean de Fodoas
by Maurice Magre - adapted by Brian Stableford - cover by Mike Hoffman. READ AN EXCERPT - 300 p. - US$ 23.95
This volume is the tenth of a series of twelve dedicated to Magre’s works. In Jean de Fodoas (1939), the eponymous hero leaves his natal city of Toulouse, travelling to the heart of India in the heyday of the Mogul Empire, to the court of Emperor Akbar the Great. Adventure and mysticism are brought together in the novel, because Jean’s cousin has recruited him to accomplish a mysterious task at Akbar’s court, involving the treasure of Genghis Khan and the enigmatic Baphomet that was once allegedly worshipped by the Knights Templars. A picaresque and rambunctious adventure story, Jean de Fodoas is a stylish example of Magre’s ability to bring together adventure and mysticism.

Tiger and The Eye
by Jean-Marc & Randy Lofficier and José Luis Ruiz Pérez. - 136 p. b&w - US$ 12.95
The saga of Tiger & The Eye takes place on an Alternate Earth dominated by Mesoamerican cultures, one on which the Indo-European civilizations never rose to prominence, leaving room for the Mesoamerican cultures to thrive and grow, and create technological advancements unique to that society, including the ability to cross into other worlds by using the much coveted “wayak” technology. Our two protagonists, the eponymous Tiger and The Eye, are private detectives in the well-trodden tradition of Raymond Chandler, who are led to investigate a series of murders among the aristocracy of their society, and drawn into a web of espionage and deceit that threatens the safety of their entire world. A new otherworldly fantasy saga by the writers of Superman’s Metropolis and Strangers and the artist of Tarzan and Turok.
