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!
