For centuries beyond counting, humanity has served the Others, god-like Eternals who rule from their cloud-capped mountain-city, building a civilization of unimagined beauty and unchecked viciousness. But all that is about to change. Bas Alyates, grizzled general of a thousand battles, has assembled a vast army with which to contend with the might of Those Above. Eudokia, Machiavellian matriarch and the power behind the Empty Throne, travels to the Roost, nominally to play peacemaker - but in fact to inspire the human population toward revolt. Deep in the dark byways of the mountain's lower tiers, the urchin Pyre leads a band of fanatical revolutionaries in acts of terrorism against their inhuman oppressors. Against them, Calla, handmaiden of the Eternals' king, fights desperately to stave off the rising tide of violence which threatens to destroy her beloved city. The story begun in Those Above comes to a stunning conclusion in this unforgettable battle for the hearts and minds of the human race, making The Empty Throne the most exciting epic fantasies of recent times.

A City Dreaming

M’s New York, the infinite nexus of the universe, really is a city that never sleeps—but is always dreaming.

A powerful magician returns to New York City and reluctantly finds himself in the middle of a war between the city’s two most powerful witches. “It would help if you did not think of it as magic. M certainly had long ceased to do so.” M is an ageless drifter with a sharp tongue, few scruples, and the ability to bend reality to his will, ever so slightly. He’s come back to New York City after a long absence, and though he’d much rather spend his days drinking artisanal beer in his favorite local bar, his old friends—and his enemies—have other plans for him. One night M might find himself squaring off against the pirates who cruise the Gowanus Canal; another night sees him at a fashionable uptown charity auction where the waitstaff are all zombies. A subway ride through the inner circles of hell? In M’s world, that’s practically a pleasant diversion. Before too long, M realizes he’s landed in the middle of a power struggle between Celise, the elegant White Queen of Manhattan, and Abilene, Brooklyn’s hip, free-spirited Red Queen, a rivalry that threatens to make New York go the way of Atlantis. To stop it, M will have to call in every favor, waste every charm, and blow every spell he’s ever acquired—he might even have to get out of bed before noon. Enter a world of Wall Street wolves, slumming scenesters, desperate artists, drug-induced divinities, pocket steampunk universes, and demonic coffee shops. M’s New York, the infinite nexus of the universe, really is a city that never sleeps—but is always dreaming.

In two stunning novels, C. W. Gortner brings to life two of history’s most intriguing and courageous women: Catherine de Medici, the last legitimate descendant of the illustrious Medici family of Italy, and Juana of Castile, daughter of Queen Isabel and King Ferdinand of Spain, who would be the last queen to inherit her country’s throne. THE CONFESSIONS OF CATHERINE DE MEDICI Catherine de Medici has been expelled from her native Florence and betrothed to Henri, son of François I of France. In an unfamiliar realm, she strives to create a role for herself through her patronage of the famous clairvoyant Nostradamus and her own innate gift as a seer. But in her fortieth year, Catherine is widowed, left alone with six young children in a kingdom torn apart by the ambitions of a treacherous nobility. Relying on her tenacity, wit, and uncanny gift for compromise, Catherine seizes power, intent on securing the throne for her sons, unaware that if she is to save France, she may have to sacrifice her ideals, her reputation, and the secret of her embattled heart. THE LAST QUEEN Born amid her parents’ struggle to unify and strengthen their kingdom, Juana, at the age of sixteen, is sent to wed Philip, heir to the Habsburg Empire. There, she finds unexpected love and passion with her dashing young husband, and at first she is content with her children and her married life. But when tragedy strikes and she becomes heir to the Spanish throne, Juana finds herself plunged into a battle for power against her husband that grows to involve the major monarchs of Europe. Besieged by foes on all sides, Juana vows to secure her crown and save Spain from ruin, even if it costs her everything. Includes an excerpt from C. W. Gortner’s much-anticipated new novel featuring Isabel of Castile, The Queen’s Vow.

This volume presents papers from a unique two-day conference organized in London in 2000 by The British Museum and the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. The academic study of Burma, especially the study of its cultural history, has been very largely ignored over the last fifty years. The conference papers published here together form a major contribution towards the redress of that neglect. Current research was presented by scholars from the USA, Germany, France, Australia and the UK. Topics covered are prehistory, architecture (monastic and secular), the cult of the nats, lacquer, illustrated manuscripts, mural paintings, sculpture, textiles and the Ferrars Archive of Burma photographs at the Royal Geographical Society. Contents: - Introduction by Alexandro Green and T. Richard Blurton - Prehistoric grave goods from the Chindwin and Samon River regions by U Nyunt Han, U Win Maung (Tanpawady) and Elizabeth Moore - Digging for myths: archaeological excavations and surveys of the legendary nineteen founding villages of Pagan by Bob Hudson, U Nyein Lwin and U Win Maung (Tanpawady) - Offering up a rare jewel: Buddhist merit-making and votive tablets in early Burma by John Guy - A Burma origin for the Sukhothai Walking Buddha by Pamela Gutman - Relationships between Buddhist texts and images of the Enlightenment during the Early Pagan Period by Charlotte Galloway - Bronze sculptures from Burma in the British Museum by T. Richard Blurton - Narrative modes in late seventeenth to early nineteenth century Burmese wall paintings by Alexandra Green - Burmese cosmological manuscripts by Patricia Herbert - 'Royal images' in their'palaces': the place of the statues in the cult of the 37 nats by Benedicte Brac de la Perriere - Problems and prosecpets for the preservation of wooden monasteries in Burma by Sylvia Fraser-Lu - The Kachin Manau and Manau Shadung: the development of an ethno-cultural symbol in Burma by Mandy Sodan - Court dress, politics and ethnicity in the Shan states by Susan Conway - Diversity, identity and modernity in exile: 'traditional' Karenni clothing by Sandra Dudley - Burmese arts and crafts: the Scherman collection in the Ethnographical Museum, Munich by Uta Weigelt - Photographs by Max and Bertha Ferrars by Joanna Scadden
