Winner of an English PEN 'PEN Translates!' award. Barcelona, 1952: General Franco's fascist government is at the height of its oppressive powers, casting a black shadow across the city. When wealthy socialite Mariona Sobrerroca is found dead in her mansion in the exclusive Tibidabo district, the police scramble to seize control of the investigation. Ana Martí Noguer, an eager young journalist, is surprised to be assigned this important story, shadowing Inspector Isidro Castro. But Ana soon realises that a bundle of strange letters unearthed at the scene point to a sequence of events dramatically different from the official version. She enlists the help of her cousin Beatriz, a scholar, and what begins as an intriguing puzzle opens up a series of revelations that implicate the regime's most influential figures. The two women have placed themselves in mortal danger. As the conspiracy unfolds, Ana's courage and Beatriz's wits will be their only weapons against the city's corrupt and murderous elite.

Almost anyone who has read or written Science Fiction or fantasy has been inspired by the work of Michael Moorcock. His literary flair and grand sense of adventure have been evident since his controversial first novel Behold the Man, through the stories and novels featuring his most famous character, Elric of Melniboné, to his fantasy masterpiece, Gloriana, winner of both the Campbell Memorial and World Fantasy, awards for best novel. Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, and Michael Chabon all cite Moorcock as a major influence; as editor of New Worlds magazine, he helped launch the careers of many of his contemporaries, including Harlan Ellison, Philip K. Dick, and J. G. Ballard. Tor Books now proudly presents Moorcock's first independent novel in nine years, a tale both fantastical and autobiographical, a celebration of London and what it meant to be young there in the years after World War II. The Whispering Swarm is the first in a trilogy that will follow a young man named Michael as he simultaneously discovers himself and a secret realm hidden deep in the heart of London. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

From author Cleveland Joahll Sai comes an intriguingly new genre that young and old readers alike will surely find fascinating and inspiring. In this self-help fiction, tales are more than stories for mere entertainment. The engaging stories, controversial dialogues, mystical anecdotes, and vivid otherworldly experiences serve a point. Though conveyed in fictional accounts, the serious intent of The Whispering Archangel is to inspire introspection and new vision. This intent permeates every word. The book presents a unique view of how we got to where we are and assumes that we can change where we say we are going. This absorbing book presents exchanges and thoughts about existence that are altogether unique. It supposes that ultimate truth is not so clearly defined. The individuals in the book have different stories and come from different worlds. In their quest for illumination they are lead to conclusions, personal truths and understandings which even contradict. Through them the reader may find that universal truth is found along the path of personal understanding. Through the tales in The Whispering Archangel, a story of ascension, as pursued humanity, is told. This book suggests that a profound examination of all that is within and all that surrounds humankind must occur in order for ascension to take place. It demands that humanity awaken, become more consciously aware of the Life surrounding it, and ascend.

The year is 1949 and Valdimar Haraldsson, an eccentric Icelander with elevated ideas about the influence of fish consumption on Nordic civilisation, has had the singular good fortune to be invited to join a Danish merchant ship on its way to the Black Sea. Among the crew is the mythical hero Caeneus, disguised as the second mate. Every evening after dinner he entrances his fellow travellers with the tale of how he sailed with the fabled vessel the Argo on the Argonauts' quest to retrieve the Golden Fleece. A master storyteller, Sjón seamlessly blends seafaring yarns of the ancient world with the manners of the modern age. 'The Whispering Muse is a quirky, melodic, ticklish, seamlessly-translated, lovingly-polished gem of a novel. Sjón's work deserves space on any self-respecting bookshelf of European fiction.' David Mitchell 'Sjón writes like a man under a spell, filled with enchantment and magic and great wit. He is a rogue of the first order.' Keith Donohue 'The Whispering Muse is a wonderful story about stories, evoking comparisons to Borges, Nabakov and Calvino while remaining a complete original. Sly, dry and elegant, with a diamond brilliance' Chris Wilson 'An extraordinary, powerful fable - a marvel' Alberto Manguel 'An extraordinary and original writer' A.S. Byatt
