Un acte de traduction est toujours un acte de trahison.
1828. Un jeune orphelin chinois est recueilli à Canton par un professeur et conduit à Londres. Rebaptisé Robin Swift, le jeune garçon consacre ses journées à l'étude des langues dans l'optique d'intégrer le prestigieux Institut royal de traduction de l'Université d'Oxford, plus connu sous le nom de Babel. Berceau de l'argentogravure, les étudiants y exploitent le sens perdu des mots à l'aide de barres d'argent enchantées.
Dès ses premiers jours à Oxford, Robin prend conscience que ces travaux confèrent à l'Empire britannique une puissance inégalée et servent sa soif de colonisation, au détriment des classes défavorisées de la société et de ses territoires. Servir Babel revient donc à trahir sa patrie d'origine.
Peut-il espérer changer Babel de l'intérieur ? Ou devra-t-il sacrifier ses rêves pour faire tomber cette institution ?
Imaginez que vous puissiez remonter le temps, changer le cours de l'Histoire. Le 22 novembre 1963, le président Kennedy était assassiné à Dallas. À moins que... Jake Epping, professeur d'anglais à Lisbon Falls, n'a pu refuser la requête d'un ami mourant : empêcher l'assassinat de Kennedy. Une fissure dans le temps va l'entraîner dans un fascinant voyage dans le passé, en 1958, l'époque d'Elvis et de JFK, des Plymouth Fury et des Everly Brothers, d'un dégénéré solitaire nommé Lee Harvey Oswald et d'une jolie bibliothécaire qui deviendra le grand amour de Jake. Avec une extraordinaire énergie créatrice, Stephen King revisite au travers d'un suspense vertigineux l'Amérique du baby-boom, des « happy days » et du rock'n'roll.L'oeuvre d'un génie !

« L'un des grands esprits littéraires de sa génération. » Rolling StoneL'un des écrivains les plus influents de toute l'histoire des comics nous offre un ouvrage « merveilleux, brillant et souvent émouvant » (Neil Gaiman), qui nous emmène dans l'envers occulte et fantastique de la réalité. Avec son tout premier recueil de nouvelles, couvrant quarante années d'activité, Alan Moore nous présente une palette de personnages aussi variés qu'inoubliables qui découvrent - et dans certains cas, font et défont - la trame diverse et encore largement inexplorée de l'existence.Dans la première des nouvelles, la relation intime entre deux spécialistes de l'amour sorcier connaît de tragiques ramifications. Dans une autre, une créature surnaturelle infiltre le groupe de passionnés de paranormal qui est justement censé étudier ses congénères. Dans celle qui donne son titre au recueil, un nostalgique décide de retourner dans la station balnéaire de sa jeunesse et constate que, malheureusement, le passé n'est jamais bien loin. Et dans la monumentale novella qui retrace sur soixante-quinze ans l'histoire abracadabrante et kafkaïenne des représentants majeurs de l'industrie des comics, Moore nous révèle le coeur sombre et palpitant du business des superhéros. Des fantômes aux créatures d'outre-monde en passant par un cerveau de Boltzmann façonneur de l'univers pendant le Big Bang, Illuminations est précisément cela, une sélection d'histoires solaires et surprenantes grâce auxquelles une légende contemporaine nous révèle tout le pouvoir de la magie et de l'imagination.
« Merveilleux, brillant et émouvant... Stimulant pour l'esprit et auréolé de transcendance cosmique, tout en restant résolument ancré dans la réalité, et composé dans une langue qui étincelle, fluide et chatoyante... Une fois achevée, cette découverte refuse de vous quitter. » Neil Gaiman« Illuminations brûle de l'intelligence supérieure de Moore, pourtant aussi d'une humanité folle. Dans ce premier recueil de fiction courte, l'écrivain travaille à une échelle plus restreinte qui ne l'empêche pas de viser le firmament... Moore nous offre des nouvelles fabuleuses doublées d'un bestiaire de génie. Ses échecs sont rares, ses fulgurances nombreuses... Remarquable. » Junot Diaz, The New York Times Book Review« Le légendaire scénariste Moore (Watchmen) attise encore l'éclat de sa réputation avec ce premier recueil en prose qui réunit neuf histoires couvrant l'ensemble de sa carrière. Les superhéros vont le regretter, le fantastique littéraire ne peut que s'en féliciter. » Publishers Weekly« Sous la plume de Moore, le local devient universel, le trivial sublime et le temporel éternel. » Financial Times« L'un des auteurs de fiction les plus marquants de la langue anglaise... L'influence de Moore se fait sentir partout, dans notre littérature, sur nos écrans, et jusque dans les questions politiques actuelles. » The Guardian « L'imaginaton de Moore est sans limites, tout comme son style, virtuose. » La Voix du Nord
Collection dirigée par Gérard Klein L'Invincible Armada, lancée, en juillet 1588, à l'assaut de l'Angleterre hérétique par les forces catholiques, triomphe de la tempête et profite de l'assassinat de la grande Elisabeth. La papauté pavoise.
L'Histoire a changé de cours.
Au xxe siècle, des locomotives à vapeur disputent les routes aux cavaliers ; les nouvelles sont transmises par des réseaux de sémaphores ; on chasse les sorcières, et les seigneurs féodaux appuient leurs révoltes de sciences impies comme l'électricité et la chimie.
Un classique de l'uchronie, salué par Anthony Burgess comme l'un des meilleurs romans britanniques, et par Eric B. Henriet, le plus grand spécialiste du genre, comme « incontestablement le chef-d'oeuvre du thème » dans sa somme, L'Histoire revisitée.

The Number One Sunday Times Bestseller. An absorbing historical fantasy, She Who Became the Sun by Shelley Parker-Chan reimagines the rise to power of the Ming Dynasty''s founding emperor. '' This audacious, brilliant debut is a vivid, original reimagining . . . immersive storytelling at its finest '' - Daily Mail ''Magnificent in every way. War, desire, vengeance, politics - Shelley Parker-Chan has perfectly measured each ingredient'' - Samantha Shannon, author of The Priory of the Orange Tree ''A thoroughly engrossing read with a fabulous, tragic-trickster protagonist'' - Megan Campisi, author of Sin Eater ''A dazzling new world of fate, war, love and betrayal'' - Zen Cho, author of Black Water Sister In a famine-stricken village on a dusty plain, a seer shows two children their fates. For a family''s eighth-born son, there''s greatness. For the second daughter, nothing. In 1345, China lies restless under harsh Mongol rule. And when a bandit raid wipes out their home, the two children must somehow survive. Zhu Chongba despairs and gives in. But the girl resolves to overcome her destiny. So she takes her dead brother''s identity and begins her journey. Can Zhu escape what''s written in the stars, as rebellion sweeps the land? Or can she claim her brother''s greatness - and rise as high as she can dream? This is a glorious tale of love, loss, betrayal and triumph by a powerful new voice. ''As brilliant as Circe . . . a deft and dazzling triumph'' - Tasha Suri, author of The Jasmine Throne '' Epic, tragic and gorgeous '' - Alix E. Harrow, author of The Ten Thousand Doors of January She Who Became the Sun is a reimagining of the rise to power of Zhu Yuanzhang. Zhu was the peasant rebel who expelled the Mongols, unified China under native rule, and became the founding Emperor of the Ming Dynasty.
Zhu Yuanzhang, the Radiant King, is riding high on her recent victory that tore southern China from its Mongol rulers. Young, ambitious, and in possession of the Mandate of Heaven, Zhu believes utterly in her own capacity to do anything - endure anything - that will allow her to seize the imperial throne from the Mongols and crown herself Emperor.
But Zhu isn''t the only one with imperial ambitions. Her neighbor, the former courtesan Madam Zhang, wants the throne for her husband - and her powerful kingdom has the strength and resources to wipe Zhu off the map. The only way for Zhu to defeat Madam Zhang is to gamble everything on a risky alliance with an old enemy: the beautiful, traitorous eunuch general Ouyang.
Nearly mad with the grief and guilt of having killed his beloved Prince of Henan, Ouyang is alive for only one reason: to enact revenge on his father''s killer, the Great Khan. His instability soon threatens his partnership with Zhu, who has never felt grief in her life. Zhu can''t even imagine what kind of sacrifice could ever cause her to feel it. But all desire costs, and while Zhu has already paid with her body - the true price of her ambition will break even her ruthless heart.
Central to Tolkien's work, this book is the story of the first age: the foundations of the world of Middle-Earth and its peoples before the great events recorded in "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings".
Legendary storyteller Stephen King goes into the deepest well of his imagination in this spellbinding novel about a seventeen-year-old boy who inherits the keys to a parallel world where good and evil are at war, and the stakes could not be higher - for their world or ours.
Charlie Reade looks like a regular high school kid, great at baseball and football, a decent student. But he carries a heavy load. His mom was killed in a hit-and-run accident when he was ten, and grief drove his dad to drink. Charlie learned how to take care of himself - and his dad. Then, when Charlie is seventeen, he meets a dog named Radar and her aging master, Howard Bowditch, a recluse in a big house at the top of a big hill, with a locked shed in the backyard. Sometimes strange sounds emerge from it.
Charlie starts doing jobs for Mr. Bowditch and loses his heart to Radar. Then, when Bowditch dies, he leaves Charlie a cassette tape telling a story no one would believe. What Bowditch knows, and has kept secret all his long life, is that inside the shed is a portal to another world.
King''s storytelling in Fairy Tale soars. This is a magnificent and terrifying tale about another world than ours, in which good is pitted against overwhelming evil, and a heroic boy - and his dog - must lead the battle.
Holly Gibney, one of Stephen Kings most compelling and ingeniously resourceful characters, returns in this thrilling novel to solve the gruesome truth behind multiple disappearances in a midwestern town.
Stephen Kings Holly marks the triumphant return of beloved King character Holly Gibney. Readers have witnessed Hollys gradual transformation from a shy (but also brave and ethical) recluse in Mr. Mercedes to Bill Hodgess partner in Finders Keepers to a full-fledged, smart, and occasionally tough private detective in The Outsider. In Kings new novel, Holly is on her own, and up against a pair of unimaginably depraved and brilliantly disguised adversaries.
When Penny Dahl calls the Finders Keepers detective agency hoping for help locating her missing daughter, Holly is reluctant to accept the case. Her partner, Pete, has Covid. Her (very complicated) mother has just died. And Holly is meant to be on leave. But something in Penny Dahls desperate voice makes it impossible for Holly to turn her down.
I could never let Holly Gibney go. She was supposed to be a walk-on character in Mr. Mercedes and she just kind of stole the book and stole my heart. Holly is all her. STEPHEN KING
From the bestselling author of The House in the Cerulean Sea and Under the Whispering Door, Wolfsong is a story of love, loyalty, and family.
Ox Matheson was twelve when his father taught him a lesson: Ox wasn''t worth anything and people would never understand him. Then he left.
Ox was sixteen when the energetic Bennett family moved in next door, harbouring a secret that would change him forever. For the family are shape-shifters, who can transform into wolves at will. Drawn to their magic, loyalty and enduring friendships, Ox feels a gulf between this extraordinary new world and the quiet life he''s known. He also finds an ally in Joe, the youngest Bennett boy. Joe is charming and handsome, but haunted by scars he cannot heal.
Ox was twenty-three when murder came to town, and tore a hole in his heart. Violence flared, tragedy split the pack and Joe left town, leaving Ox behind. Three years later, the boy is back. Except now he''s a man - and Ox can no longer ignore the song that howls between them.

____________ In the start of an all-new series, the bestselling author of Uprooted and Spinning Silver introduces you to a dangerous school for the magically gifted where failure means certain death - until one girl begins to rewrite its rules. ____________ Enter a school of magic unlike any you have ever encountered. There are no teachers, no holidays, friendships are purely strategic, and the odds of survival are never equal. Once you''re inside, there are only two ways out: you graduate or you die. El Higgins is uniquely prepared for the school''s many dangers. She may be without allies, but she possesses a dark power strong enough to level mountains and wipe out untold millions - never mind easily destroy the countless monsters that prowl the school. Except, she might accidentally kill all the other students, too. So El is trying her hardest not to use it... that is, unless she has no other choice. Wry, witty, endlessly inventive, and mordantly funny - yet with a true depth and fierce justice at its heart - this enchanting novel reminds us that there are far more important things than mere survival. ____________ ''Hilarious and wild! Take any fictional magic school, make it as over-the-top dangerous as possible, and populate it with a bunch of snarky teenagers; the result is pure batshit fun.'' N.K.

Emily Skrutskie ''Fresh, smart, and delightfully unique. It''s Hogwarts with higher stakes and sharper claws, and I absolutely loved it.'' Alix E. Harrow ''A nightmare from which I never wished to wake.
