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

As ever, there’s a broad field of other books out. It’d be re­miss not to flag EUROPE IN WIN­TER (out now, So­laris), third in Dave Hutchin­son’s Awards-nom­i­na­tion-hoover­ing Frac­tured Europe Se­quence, or Ken Liu’s THE WALL OF STORMS (out now, Head Of Zeus), book two of his Dan­de­lion Dy­nasty se­ries. Sadly we were un­able to bring you re­views of Mark Frost’s THE SE­CRET HIS­TORY OF TWIN PEAKS (out now, Macmil­lan) or Rogue One tie-in STAR WARS: CAT­A­LYST (17 Novem­ber, Cen­tury) due to stern em­bar­goes – but we will next is­sue! Read­ers with su­per­hero-mad nip­pers should check out IRON MAN: THE GAUNTLET (out now, Eg­mont) by Artemis Fowl au­thor Eoin Colfer, first in a new Marvel Fic­tion range suit­able for ages eight and up. Turn­ing to non-fic­tion, you’ll need sturdy shelv­ing and a healthy bank bal­ance to buy THE STAR TREK EN­CY­CLO­PE­DIA (out now, Harper De­sign) – boosted with 300 pages of new en­tries since 1999’s third edi­tion, it now stretches to two vol­umes. Fi­nally, three other books which all re­ceived glowing re­views in these pages have also had the up­date treat­ment. THE ART OF HAM­MER (out now, Ti­tan Books) now has posters for Ham­mer pro­duc­tions re­leased since 2010. THE HAM­MER VAULT (out now, Ti­tan Books) fea­tures new in­for­ma­tion on the hor­ror stu­dio’s pre-1979 re­leases as well as those of the revived brand. And THE MARVEL VAULT (19 Novem­ber, Ti­tan Books), first re­leased in 2006, uses 16 ex­tra pages to cover the last decade’s de­vel­op­ments. Phew!
