SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Reviews -

A frankly in­sane num­ber of book re­leases this month means there are a few in­ter­est­ing ti­tles we couldn’t fit in. They in­clude the lav­ish, three-vol­ume, far-too-nice-for­jour­nal­ists-to-af­ford STAR WARS ART: RALPH MC­QUAR­RIE (out now, Abrams) – head to p72 for a flavour of the de­lights within. We should also flag up DAUGH­TER OF EDEN (out now, Corvus), book three in Chris Beck­ett’s award-win­ning Dark Eden se­ries – check out an in­ter­view with him on p82 – and GOLDENHAND (out now, Hot Key Books), Garth Nix’s lat­est Old King­dom book. Then there’s James P Smythe’s lat­est slice of postapoc­a­lyp­tic YA, DARK MADE DAWN (out now, Hod­der & Stoughton), which con­cludes his Clarke Award-nom­i­nated Aus­tralia Tril­ogy. Hang on… do you hear jin­gling? Oh god, it can’t be sleigh bells can it? Yes it can. Il­lus­trated Doc­tor Who story col­lec­tion TWELVE DOC­TORS OF CHRIST­MAS (out now, BBC Chil­dren’s Books) is upon us, so ex­pect to hear Slade blar­ing out in Asda any day now. Fi­nally, here’s three non-fic­tion ti­tles well worth a look: GUILLERMO DEL TORO’S PAN’S LABYRINTH (21 Oc­to­ber, Ti­tan) looks back at the di­rec­tor’s 2006 dark fairy­tale; THE ART AND MAK­ING OF THE FLASH (21 Oc­to­ber, Ti­tan) re­veals pro­duc­tion art and be­hind-the-scenes shots from the su­per-show; and SHIRLEY JACK­SON: A RATHER HAUNTED LIFE (25 Oc­to­ber, Liv­eright) doc­u­ments the tu­mul­tuous life of the hor­ror au­thor be­hind the likes of The Haunt­ing Of Hill House. Phew! (The au­thor’s the sub­ject of Book Club on p40.)
