NOVELS

WELCOME TO PLANET VEGA PRIME

When the crew of the supply ship NTSS Magellan arrives on Planet Vega Prime to routinely drop off provisions, they discover the survey team that has been investigating the planet for six years has inexplicably disappeared and soon find themselves enlisted to determine what happened.
Lead by the universe-weary Captain Harker, the dysfunctional supply crew is unprepared for a search and rescue operation of this magnitude. For Vega Prime is unique and the lifeforms that inhabit it are far more alien than any previously discovered in the vast regions of space.

There are things in the universe beyond all human comprehension.

An all-original horror anthology set in the world of CliveBarker’s cult film masterpiece, Nightbreed, and including stories bySeanan McGuire, Amber Benson, Karl Alexander, Nancy Holder, and more!

Clive Barker’s Nightbreed has been controversial since the moment it was released in a version edited by the studio and roundly condemned byBarker, who wrote and directed the film.

ESSAYS

In 1982, a new benchmark was set for science-fiction film with the release of Blade Runner. Based on the book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by the acclaimed novelist Philip K. Dick and directed by Ridley Scott, Blade Runner was a visual and philosophical tour-de-force, set in a dystopian future in which artificially intelligent replicants, nearly indistinguishable from humans, are hunted down by police-operatives known as Blade Runners. Featuring the talents of Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Joanna Cassidy, Edward James Olmos, and Darryl Hannah, the film tackled numerous themes and birthed controversies that have been poured over by fans and critics ever since. Blade Runner has also inspired literary and comic-book spin-offs, and a cinematic sequel released in 2017.

The Cyberpunk Nexus: Exploring the Blade Runner Universe examines the entire Blade Runner saga, from the original novel to its numerous film iterations. The book features a foreword by Paul M. Sammon. Essayists include Bryce Carlson, Paul J. Salamoff, Robert Meyer Burnett, Rich Handley, Zaki Hasan, Julian Darius, and many others, with a cover by popular artist Matt Busch.
