Imagine a flat world, sitting on the backs of four elephants, who hurtle through space balanced on a giant turtle. The Discworld is a place (and a time) parallel to our own – but also very different. That is the setting for Terry Pratchett’s phenomenally successful Discworld series, which now celebrates its 25th anniversary.
The Discworld Graphic Novels presents the very first two volumes of this much-loved series in graphic novel form. First published fifteen years ago, these fully illustrated versions are now issued for the first time in hardback. Introduced here are the bizarre misadventures of Twoflower, the Discworld’s first ever tourist, and possibly — portentously — its last, and his guide Rincewind, the spectacularly inept wizard.Not to mention the Luggage, which has a mind of its own.

In the stew and dazzle of New York City, savvy, irreverent Fritz Malone-who Susan Isaacs called «the perfect balance of noir P.I. and decent guy»-is embroiled in a string of grisly murders that drags him behind the lurid headlines into the tangled affairs of some the city’s most beautiful people and their ugly truths. When two women linked with charismatic late-night TV personality Marshall Fox are found brutally slain in Central Park, Fox becomes the prime suspect and is charged with the murders. At the tabloid trial, one of Fox’s ex-lovers, Robin Burrell, is called to testify-and is instantly thrust into the media’s harsh spotlight. Shaken by a subsequent onslaught of hate mail, Robin goes to Fritz Malone for help. Malone has barely begun to investigate when Robin is found sadistically murdered in her Upper West Side brownstone, hands and feet shackled and a shard of mirror protruding from her neck. But it’s another gory detail that confounds both Malone and Megan Lamb, the troubled NYPD detective officially assigned to the case. Though Fox is in custody the third victim’s right hand has been placed over her heart and pinned with a four-inch nail, just as in the killings he’s accused of. Is this a copycat murder, or is the wrong man on trial? Teaming up with Detective Lamb, Malone delves deeper into Fox’s past, unpeeling the layers of the media darling’s secret life and developing an ever-increasing list of suspects for Robin’s murder. When yet another body turns up in Central Park, the message is clear: Get too close to Fox and get ready to die. And Malone is getting too close. In Cold Day in Hell, Richard Hawke has again given readers a tale about the dark side of the big city, a thriller that moves with breakneck speed toward a conclusion that is as shocking as it is unforgettable. Praise for Richard Hawke’s Speak of the Devil «Richard Hawke has managed what some writers spend a lifetime trying to accomplish: He has come up with a character and place that should entertain in countless stories to come.» -Rocky Mountain News «Fast-moving, first-rate . . .

Designer Valentin Yudashkin (b. 1963) has brought a contemporary Russian aesthetic to modern fashion. Yudashkin, the only Russian designer honored with membership in the exclusive Syndicate of High Fashion in Paris, showed his first collection in Paris in 1991. Today he creates both luxurious haute couture and ready-to-wear lines, and his fashions are in the Louvre, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the California Museum of Fashion, and other prominent collections.
Lavishly illustrated, this book presents the many facets of Yudashkin’s work, showing how he draws inspiration from czarist Russia as well as his own poetic imagination. Yudashkin’s lush, vividly colored fashions are rich with incredible detail, including fur, beading, embroidery, and all variety of ornamentation. His technical mastery and his theatricality have wowed critics around the world. This book, which includes runway photographs and never-before-seen sketches, brings his work to a wider audience.
