A graphic novel edition of The Mystery Knight, one of the thrilling Dunk and Egg novellas from George R. R. Martin’s A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms and a prequel of sorts to A Game of Thrones “Every wedding needs a singer, and every tourney needs a mystery knight.” Westeros is eerily peaceful. King Aerys I sits on the Iron Throne. A ravaging plague has abated. Yet beneath the surface, tensions linger sixteen years after a failed rebellion. In these restless times, noble hedge knight Ser Duncan the Tall—Dunk, to his friends—and his precocious boy squire, Egg, travel the Seven Kingdoms performing chivalrous deeds, though Egg’s bloodline must be concealed at all costs. After heading north for Winterfell, Dunk and Egg are lured off the kingsroad by a wedding feast—and an unusually lucrative tournament. The champion jouster will claim a rare trophy indeed: a dragon’s egg. Dunk, always better in a melee, would be satisfied with a hot meal, a cup of wine, and a purse full of coins. But a treasonous plot is more likely to hatch before another dragon ever stretches its wings. Someone’s on to Egg. And a mystery knight with designs on an even bigger prize soon throws the entire affair into chaos.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Novelist Daniel Abraham and illustrator Tommy Patterson are not merely turning George R. R. Martin’s epic fantasy A Game of Thrones into a graphic novel: They are meticulously translating one art form into another, and capturing the intricate nuances of Martin’s novels just as HBO is doing with the blockbuster series. The Abraham/Patterson collaboration is more than just a faithful adaptation. It is a labor of love—and a thrilling masterwork in its own right. Now, in the second volume, the sweeping action moves from the icy north, where the bastard Jon Snow seeks to carve out a place for himself among bitter outcasts and hardened criminals sworn to service upon the Wall . . . to the decadent south and the capital city of King’s Landing, where Jon’s father, Lord Eddard Stark, serves as the Hand of King Robert Baratheon amid a nest of courtly vipers . . . to the barbarian lands across the Narrow Sea, where the young princess Daenerys Targaryen has found the unexpected in her forced marriage to the Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo: love—and with it, for the first time in her life, power. Meanwhile, the dwarf Tyrion Lannister, accused by Lady Catelyn Stark of the attempted murder of her now-crippled youngest son, must call upon all his cunning and wit to survive when he is captured and imprisoned in the lofty dungeons of the Eyrie, where Lady Stark’s sister—a woman obsessed with vengeance against all Lannisters—rules. But Catelyn’s impulsive arrest of the Imp will set in motion a series of violent events whose outcome is fated to shake the world at the worst possible moment. For now is not the time for private feuds and bloodthirsty ambitions. Winter is coming . . . and with it, terrors beyond imagining. From the Hardcover edition.

A New York Times bestselling epic. A blockbuster TV series. And now, George R. R. Martin’s breathtaking fantasy masterpiece makes its powerful graphic novel debut—with all the majesty, intrigue, full-blooded adventure, and sweeping, mythic vision that have made it a landmark work of imaginative literature. Beyond the legendary Wall, the vast battlement that stands between the kingdom of Winterfell and the untamed unknown, something sinister and supernatural is stirring in the frozen wastes. For the lifelong soldiers of the Night’s Watch, sworn to protect the realm, it is time to prepare for the nearly endless season of cold and snow that—along with something unspeakable—is closing in. For Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell and patriarch of a fierce and stoic clan, it is time to greet his king . . . and make ready for whatever destiny holds in store. For an arrogant young prince, it is time to reclaim his lost throne, by bartering his innocent sister to be a savage warlord’s bride. And for a princess bound for a strange and brutal realm, it is time to begin a journey of transformation from daughter to wife to queen. All across the Seven Kingdoms, the wheels of tumultuous, life-changing history have begun to turn.

MEG: The Graphic Novel A beautifully illustrated graphic novel based on New York Times bestselling author Steve Alten's novel and Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture directed by Jon Turteltaub and starring Jason Statham as Jonas Taylor. Once a Navy deep-sea submersible pilot, now a marine paleontologist, Dr. Jonas Taylor is convinced that a remnant population of Carcharodon Megalodon--prehistoric sharks growing up to 70 feet long, that subsisted on whales--lurks at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. When offered the opportunity to return to those crushing depths in search of the MEG, Taylor leaps at the chance... but the quest for scientific knowledge (and personal vindication) becomes a desperate fight for survival, when the most vicious predator that the earth has ever known is freed to once-again hunt the surface. This graphic novel is illustrated by super star artist Mike S. Miller, artist of George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones prequel "The Hedge Knight" graphic novel and the number 1 bestselling digital comic series, DC Comics "Inhumans."

Media in general and narrative media in particular have the potential to represent not only a variety of both possible and actual worlds but also the perception and consciousness of characters in these worlds. Hence, media can be understood as "qualia machines," as technologies that allow for the production of subjective experiences within the affordances and limitations posed by the conventions of their specific mediality. This edited collection examines the transmedial as well as the medium-specific strategies employed by the verbal representations characteristic for literary texts, the verbal-pictorial representations characteristic for comics, the audiovisual representations characteristic for films, and the interactive representations characteristic for video games. Combining theoretical perspectives from analytic philosophy, cognitive theory, and narratology with approaches from phenomenology, psychosemiotics, and social semiotics, the contributions collected in this volume provide a state-of-the-art map of current research on a wide variety of ways in which subjectivity can be represented across conventionally distinct media.

Legend of the Storm Hawks

Legend of the Storm Hawks

Not a light read, this is serious fantasy for serious fantasy fans. Set on a future Earth, our own history echoes from the shadows. Adversity awakens gifts in this tale of evolution and survival.

Gentle Reader, someday soon, your world will end. Ending is not as final as it sounds. Our world has ended before. At least this time, the end will be a quick one. When it comes, be patient. Those of your time will linger and watch new cycles unfold. Some will walk this spinning blue rock again. A few will shape its destiny. "Epic fantasy with stunning world-building, dramatic characterization, a suspenseful and surprising plot, and a strong thread of fantastical elements.” (Readers’ Favorite Reviewer) A master player convinces the pawn the move is its own. Nigel has been at the game longer than most, but lately kings, queens, and bishops keep turning into rogue knights. It’s damned inconvenient of them, considering the world is about to end again. The Watchers will soon declare this cycle over, as they have so many cycles before, shrugging off yet another rise and fall of humankind, and giving the dragons another turn at dominion. Sethlyan and Isobel are unaware they’re expendable pawns in an increasingly complex game. Sethlyan is the second son of the Second of Aleron. He’s grown tired of hearing he and his friends are the prophesied Storm Hawks, returned to free Rhynn from centuries of oppression. He knows better. So do the voices whispering inside his head. Isobel survived the Beast of Monaughty. Her father is dead, but his brutality haunts her. When her brother, the Rhi’Iverach, forges an alliance with the Hawks of Aleron, Isobel dutifully marries a stranger named Sethlyan. Her trust is hard to earn. His is hard to give. A deadly attack leaves them with a telepathic bond neither wants, and awakens mindgifts they struggle to accept. When rebellion brings Nigel and his charges to the precipice of war, they must choose between hiding their secrets or using their mindgifts, fighting their oppressors or sacrificing freedom for peace. Legend of the Storm Hawks is the prelude to the Rootstock Saga. Set on a future Earth where our own history echoes from the shadows, the tale is filled with political intrigue, inner demons, swords, and magic. Of course, no epic is complete without a few dragons. “A sweeping epic... Readers of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy will find Legend of the Storm Hawks satisfyingly well-detailed... realistic, involving, and thoroughly riveting.” -D.Donovan, Midwest Book Review
