iBooks Adds Exclusive Enhanced Editions of Harry Potter Series


Apple announced that enhanced versions of all seven of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books are now available in the iBooks Store for download on iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Mac. These exclusive editions contain “interactive animations and elaborate artwork” as well as the full original text of the saga.

Each book is currently available for $10 on the iBooks Store in English, with French, German, and Spanish versions of the books coming next month.

“I’m thrilled to see the Harry Potter books so beautifully realised on iBooks for the digital world; the artwork and animations in these enhanced editions bring the stories alive in a delightful new way,” J.K. Rowling said.

The Bronze Age of DC Comics Hardcover By Paul Levitz


On December 15, 1978, the dreams of generations of American children finally came true. “You’ll believe a man can fly” read the posters and billboards for the blockbuster film Superman. The hugely popular movie cemented the role of the Super Hero as America’s most enduring archetype, and the comic book as one of the country’s most significant native art forms.

That art form, however, was already moving in a new direction. Influenced by the emergence of underground comics and shifting political tides, DC Comics’ line of comics was increasingly aimed at adults, and sold in comic book shops, rather than on newsstands. Socially relevant subjects such as racism and women’s rights had entered the mainstream, and comics weren’t just for kids anymore.


Explore the evolving universe of DC Comics as underground publications and shifting political tides saw the archetypal Super Hero engage with real life issues such as women’s rights and race relations. This reader-friendly sized edition explores the evolution into the Bronze Age of DC with a careful curation and expansion of material from TASCHEN’s XL book, 75 Years of DC Comics, winner of the Eisner Awards, the Oscars of the comic book world. Bountiful images bring the story lines, characters and creators to life, alongside an original interview with Green Lantern/Green Arrow writer Denny O’Neil.

The 400 page oversized hardcover edition is available now and can be ordered HERE for $60.

Cover Reveal For Stephen King’s End of Watch

End of Watch is an upcoming Stephen King novel, set to be the third volume of a trilogy focusing on Detective Bill Hodges, following Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers. Here is the cover and the 496 page book will be released on June 7, 2016.


Here is a synopsis of the book:

In room 217 of the Lakes Region Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic, something has awakened. Something evil.

Brady Hartsfield, perpetrator of the Mercedes Massacre, where eight people were killed and many more were badly injured, has been in the Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic for five years, in a vegetative state. According to his doctors, anything approaching a complete recovery is unlikely. But behind the drool and stare, Brady is awake, and in possession of deadly new powers that allow him to wreak unimaginable havoc without ever leaving his hospital room.

Retired police detective Bill Hodges, the unlikely hero of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers, now runs an investigation agency with his partner, Holly Gibney, who delivered the blow to Hartsfield’s head that put him on the brain injury ward. Brady also remembers that. When Bill and Holly are called to a murder-suicide with ties to the Mercedes Massacre, they find themselves pulled into their most dangerous case yet, one that will put not only their lives at risk, but those of Hodges’s friend Jerome Robinson and his teenage sister, Barbara. Because Brady Hartsfield is back, and planning revenge not just on Bill Hodges and his friends, but on an entire city.

In End of Watch, Stephen King brings the Hodges trilogy to a sublimely terrifying conclusion, combining the detective fiction of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers with the supernatural suspense that has been his trademark. The result is an unnerving look at human vulnerability and up-all-night entertainment.

Authors John Grisham & Stephen King To Appear At Book-Ends: An Evening With Two Literary Giants On January 19, 2016 At Florida’s Neal Performing Arts Center


2016 will get off to a great start for fans of best-selling authors John Grisham and Stephen King. The two authors will participate in the Manatee Library Foundation’s fundraiser in January at State College of Florida’s Neal Performing Arts Center.

Legal thriller novelist John Grisham will headline the event. Stephen King will interview Grisham on stage.

The event, “Book-Ends: An Evening with Two Literary Giants” will be held Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2016.  Organizers are hoping to sell out the 832-seat venue and to raise $175,000 for the Library System.

“This is a huge literary event and we continue to be awestruck it’s happening here,” said Manatee County Library Services Manager Ava Ehde. “We are grateful to these impressive and prolific authors as well as Rep. Boyd, the growing list of sponsors and the Library Foundation for their support of our Manatee Libraries.”

If tickets are still available on Oct. 15, the public may purchase tickets for $150 apiece.

The Foundation will also give away a ticket to the King event to the winner of a Flash Fiction contest challenging amateur writers to submit a 250-word piece of fiction or poetry inspired by a photo posted on the new 805lit.org site. One winner will be announced in January. (If a minor wins the contest, he or she will be awarded two tickets for guardian accompaniment.)

Grisham’s books have sold more than 275 million copies worldwide. His most popular titles include The Firm, A Time to Kill, The Client and The Pelican Brief. A new title, The Rogue Lawyer, will be released in October.

The Stephen King Companion: Four Decades of Fear From The Master of Horror By George Beahm


In 1989, George Beahm’s Stephen King Companion appeared on the scene and became an instant hit with King fans. It was the go to bible of King information, packed with interviews, essays, inside information, rare photographs, and tantalizing trivia.

The Companion leaped onto the bestseller lists, was snapped up by the book clubs, and became known as an esential resource on King and his work.

The new, revised 320 page edition of The Stephen King Companion maintains the spirit of the original volume while updating it for this decade. It includes new material – articles, profiles, and interviews from such contributors as Clive Barker, leading King critic Michael R. Collings, and Stephen King Encyclopedia author Stephen J. Spignesi.

The first general interest book, resource guide, and reference work about the most popular novelist of our time.

From St. Martin’s Press, to be released on October 6, 2015, the third edition of The Stephen King Companion. Profusely illustrated by Glenn Chadbourne and with numerous photographs, this will be George Beahm’s final word on all things Stephen King.
