A sprawling, genre-defying epic set in a dystopian metropolis plagued by dragons, this debut about what it’s like to be young in a very old world is pure storytelling pleasure
In the burned-out, futuristic city of Empire Island, three young people navigate a crumbling metropolis constantly under threat from a pair of dragons that circle the skies. When violence strikes, reality star Duncan Humphrey Ripple V, the spoiled scion of the metropolis’ last dynasty; Baroness Swan Lenore Dahlberg, his tempestuous, death-obsessed betrothed; and Abby, a feral beauty he discovered tossed out with the trash; are forced to flee everything they've ever known. As they wander toward the scalded heart of the city, they face fire, conspiracy, mayhem, unholy drugs, dragon-worshippers, and the monsters lurking inside themselves. In this bombshell of a novel, Chandler Klang Smith has imagined an unimaginable world: scathingly clever and gorgeously strange, The Sky Is Yours is at once faraway and disturbingly familiar, its singular chaos grounded in the universal realities of love, family, and the deeply human desire to survive at all costs.
The Sky Is Yours is incredibly cinematic, bawdy, rollicking, hilarious, and utterly unforgettable, a debut that readers who loved Cloud Atlas, Super Sad True Love Story, and Blade Runner will adore.

Fantasy heroes endure. They are embedded in our cultural fabric, dwarfing other literary figures and the mere men and women of history. Achilles and Odysseus, Gilgamesh and Beowulf. King Arthur and Robin Hood, Macbeth and Sherlock Holmes, Conan and Luke Skywalker. They dominate our legends, and tower over popular culture.
The stories we tell each other begin and end with fantasy heroes, and the 21st Century is as thoroughly captivated with them as ever. From Batman to Gandalf, Harry Potter to Tyrion Lannister, the heroes of fantasy speak to—and for—whole generations.
But what makes a fantasy hero? How do the best writers create them, and bring them to life on the page? In WRITING FANTASY HEROES some of the most successful fantasy writers of our time—including Steven Erikson, Brandon Sanderson, Janet Morris, Cecelia Holland, Orson Scott Card, and Glen Cook—pull back the curtain to reveal the secrets of creating heroes that live and breathe, and steal readers' hearts.
Whether you're an aspiring writer or simply a reader who loves great fantasy and strong characters, this book is for you.

Philip K. Dick teve diversos livros adaptados para o cinema, mas nenhum foi tão aclamado e tão simbólico para sua época quanto Blade Runner: O Caçador de Androides, de Ridley Scott, que foi inspirado em Androides Sonham com Ovelhas Elétricas?.
No romance, o planeta Terra foi devastado por uma guerra atômica e grande parte da população sobrevivente emigrou para os mundos-colônias, fugindo da poeira radioativa que extinguiu inúmeras espécies de animais e de plantas. Toda criatura viva se torna, então, um objeto de desejo para aqueles que permaneceram, mas esse é um privilégio de poucos. Para a maioria que não pode pagar por um espécime autêntico, empresas começam a desenvolver réplicas eletrônicas e incrivelmente realistas de pássaros, gatos, ovelhas... e até mesmo de seres humanos.
Rick Deckard é um caçador de recompensas. Seu trabalho: eliminar androides que vivem ilegalmente na Terra. Seu sonho de consumo: substituir sua ovelha de estimação elétrica por um animal de verdade. A grande chance aparece ao ser designado para perseguir seis androides fugitivos de Marte. É quando Rick percebe que a linha que separa humanos e androides não é tão nítida como acreditava.
Imperdível para os fãs de cinema e um clássico da ficção científica, a edição da Aleph leva ao leitor uma série de extras inéditos em português: uma carta emocionante de Dick aos produtores de Blade Runner, na qual enaltece o filme e profetiza seu sucesso, a última entrevista concedida pelo autor, publicada na revista The Twilight Zone na ocasião do lançamento do filme, e um posfácio escrito pelo jornalista, escritor e tradutor desta edição, Ronaldo Bressane, que faz uma análise crítica da obra e traça paralelos entre filme e livro.

World War Terminus had left the Earth devastated. Through its ruins, bounty hunter Rick Deckard stalked, in search of the renegade replicants who were his prey. When he wasn't 'retiring' them with his laser weapon,
he dreamed of owning a live animal - the ultimate status symbol in a world all but bereft of animal life.
Then Rick got his chance: the assignment to kill six Nexus-6 targets, for a huge reward. But in Deckard's world things were never that simple, and his assignment quickly turned into a nightmare kaleidoscope of subterfuge and deceit - and the threat of death for the hunter rather than the hunted ...
