EDWARD COX The Relic Guild
In the sealed Labyrinth, a young woman must find a way to control her magic and escape her prison. The Labyrinth had once been the great meeting place, a sprawling city where a million humans hosted the Houses of the Aelfir. But when the Thaumaturgists, overlords of human and Aelfir alike, went to war, the Labyrinth became an abandoned forbidden zone. The Relic Guild, a secret band of magickers sworn to protect the Labyrinth, are now too few, and the enemy has returned. To defeat their nemesis, mightier help will be required. To save the Labyrinth the Relic Guild must find a way to contact the worlds beyond their walls. • The beginning of a new fantasy series set in an extraordinary city. Edward Cox is a debut author.

ADAM ROBERTS Bête
The extraordinary new novel from the award-winning author. Bête is a fable, a thriller. It is a novel about humanity’s relationship to animals and the natural world in an age of pervasive technology. An area that SF has not often examined is looked at by Roberts’ unique eye. The result is a novel of the future that speaks to the urgent issues of today, as population places unprecedented pressures on the natural world, and our links with technology seek to isolate us from that world. This is a typically brilliant work from one of the genre’s most acclaimed figures. Adam Roberts is a professor at Royal Holloway University. He is the awardwinning author of many critically acclaimed SF novels and bestselling parodies such as The Soddit.
