It is the dawn of the twentieth century. Following the Martians’ failed invasion of Earth, the British Empire has seized their technology and unlocked its secrets for themselves, rolling out new machines and ever more deadly weapons in their quest for dominance. Editor Ian Edginton presents a rich anthology of new prose stories about imperialism and corruption in the world of HG Wells’ most famous creation. Featuring stories by Stephen Baxter, I.N.J. Culbard, Adam Roberts, Emma Beeby, James Lovegrove, Nathan Duck, Mark Morris, Dan Whitehead, Chris Roberson, Maura McHugh, Jonathan Green and Andrew Lane [As you will see from the above covers, a contribution by Leah Moore seems to have disappeared between the promo cover design and the finished book.]

Grey Area: A Long Way Home by Dan Abnett & Richard Elson
Rebellion ISBN 978-1781-08686-5, 5 September 2019, 208pp, £9.99 / $19.99 (US). Available via Amazon.

North America, 2045. The Global Exo Segregation Zone (aka the ‘Grey Area’) is a huge holding area in Arizona housing aliens hoping to visit earth: a melting pot for disputes, crime and inter-species misunderstandings! The only thing standing in the way of chaos is the Exo Transfer Control squads: heavily-armed immigration cops that keep the peace and make sure everyone has their papers in order… E.T.C. Captain Adam Bulliet has a lot on his plate; The Arakshu want revenge on humanity for their dead ambassador, increasing numbers of aliens are having rapturous visions, and his fraternisation with Officer Birdy isn’t nearly as discrete as he thought. Not to mention a dizzyingly colossal god star is descending on Earth, and Bulliet’s team are the ones suiting up to meet ‘n’ greet the second coming. But they might end up going further than they expect…

Judge Dredd: The Small House by Rob Williams & Henry Flint
Rebellion ISBN 978-1781-08741-1, 5 September 2019, 96pp, £9.99 / $12.99 (US). Available via Amazon.

The critically-acclaimed and fan-lauded latest Judge Dredd tale which sent shockwaves through the universe and Mark Millar called “one of the best runs ever!” Everything is at stake and no-one is safe – in the critically-acclaimed storyline from Rob Williams and Henry Flint, Judge Dredd and his team of hand-picked allies finally takes on the nefarious Judge Smiley, Mega-City One’s behind-the-scenes manipulator – but who will be left standing at the end? And with tensions with Chief Judge Hershey at breaking point, has Dredd finally met his match?

Wildcat: Loner by Barrie Tomlinson, David Pugh & Eric Bradbury
Rebellion ISBN 978-1781-08684-1, 5 September 2019, 224pp, £14.99. Available via Amazon.

The second volume in the complete stories from Wildcat! Silver age comics meets Alice in Wonderland in this weird and Crusoe-esque absurdist science fiction! Ex-mercenary Loner always works alone. Even if it means being on an alien planet as the sole member of one of the spacecraft Wildcat’s exploration teams! With only his customised six-shooter, “Babe”, and some alien fur balls as company, Loner must contend with psychic aliens, subterranean monstrosities, and angry shapeshifters. He might be the toughest, but can he survive being shrunk, melted, and transformed on a planet that seems to want him dead? Join humanity’s last surviving ex-mercenary on a surreal and grotesque adventure down the alien rabbit hole…
