Chaque nation qui s’empare de la Cité la renomme. Siècle après siècle, des envahisseurs arrivent, s’installent et la Cité change de nom. Mais ses habitants ne laissent pas prendre dans ces luttes incessantes : leur ville est la Cité sans nom, et toute personne qui cherche à la renommer est étrangère. Kaidu est l’un de ces nouveaux arrivants, né d’une famille Dao, le dernier peuple avoir pris le contrôle de la région. Rat, elle, est originaire de la Cité sans nom, et déteste Dao pour tout ce qu’il représente. La passion de Dao pour sa nouvelle ville, où il fait ses classes de soldat de la Citadelle, est la seule chose qui pourra peut-être les rapprocher. Espérons-le, car tandis que des complots se montent, le sort de la Cité sans nom repose entre leurs mains.

Entre mysticisme et science-fiction, moralisme et exotisme, le prince Vladimir Odoievski n'a jamais su se fixer. Visionnaire, il invoque une sylphide lors d'une expérience d'alchimie, rencontre un architecte du XVIIIe siècle lors d'un périple en Italie, invente l'internet et les blogs ainsi qu'un système mondial de climatisation en se projetant en 4338, décrit par le menu l'actuelle crise financière qui aurait déjà ravagé le pays de Benthamie, et imagine ce qui arriverait si une comète s'écrasait sur la Terre. Vladimir Odoievski (1803-1869) est un des maîtres de la littérature russe. Il est pourtant peu connu, tandis que son oeuvre est d'une importance majeure par l'influence qu'elle a eue sur le fantastique et la littérature de son pays. La Cité sans nom regroupe l'intégralité des nouvelles d'Odoievski traduites au XIXe siècle, accompagnées de quelques textes inédits dont pour la première fois en français L'An 4338.

Detective Miles Jensen is called to the lawless town of Santa Mondega to investigate a spate of murders. This would all be quite ordinary in those rough streets, except that Jensen is the Chief Detective of Supernatural Investigations.The breakneck plot centres around a mysterious blue stone - 'The Eye of the Moon' - and the men (and women) who all want to get their hands on it: a mass murderer with a drink problem, a hit man who thinks he's Elvis, and a pair of monks among them. Add in the local crime baron, an amnesiac woman who's just emerged from a five-year coma, a gypsy fortune-teller and a hapless hotel porter, and the plot thickens fast. Most importantly, how do all these people come to be linked to the strange book with no name? The anonymous, ancient book that no one seems to have survived reading? The Book With No Name is a fast-paced, cinematic page-turner shot through with black humour, which will hold you rapt from its intriguing opening to the dramatic climax. There's only one way to find out what happens when you read the book with no name...

What if you can leap tall buildings and defeat alien monsters with your bare hands, but you buy your capes at secondhand stores and have a weakness for kittens? Cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks brings charming humor to the trials and tribulations of a young female superhero, battling monsters both supernatural and mundane in an all-too-ordinary world. The expanded edition collects the original Eisner Award-winning comic, two new stories, and new art from creators including Tyler Crook, Ron Chan, Jake Wyatt, Paulina Ganucheau, and more! The first collection won an Eisner Award (Best Publication for Kids) and has gone through 4 printings "This charming modern vision of a Superhero Girl features a young woman living an uncertain life, unsure of the best way to contribute to society. It's superhero as person instead of as corporate symbol or fight machine. We see her struggling with relatable elements of daily life, like keeping her mother informed of how things are going or having to replace her cape after it shrunk in the laundry. One of the best strips has Superhero Girl explaining to a fan how she too can be a superhero without having a horrible tragedy in her past. This strip shines because it's fresh and lighthearted without wallowing in angst. Her arch-nemesis is a normal guy who keeps telling her she's doing it wrong. She struggles to balance her calling with a paying day job but keeps forgetting to take her mask off. Her annoying perfect brother Kevin shows her up, and she struggles with whether to stay hero or take the easier, villainous way to riches. The comic is perfectly suited to Hicks's expressive figures and energetic storytelling. The perfect laugh-filled tonic for heavier angst-filled superhero series." -Publishers Weekly "Have you ever wanted a superhero who lives in your world? If so, you will love Faith Erin Hicks' Eisner-award-winning story of a young woman who happens to be a superhero. " -YALSA The Hub

Don Carpenter was one of the finest novelists working in the west. His first novel, A Hard Rain Falling, first published in 1966, has been championed by Richard Price, and George Pelacanos who called it “a masterpiece…the definitive juvenile-delinquency novel and a damning indictment of our criminal justice system,” is considered a classic. His novel A Couple of Comedians is thought by some the best novel about Hollywood ever written. He was a close friend of Evan Connell and other San Francisco writers, but his closest friendship was with Richard Brautigan, and when Brautigan killed himself, Carpenter tried for some time to write a biography of his remarkable, deeply troubled friend. He finally abandoned that in favor of writing a novel. Friday’s at Enricos, the story of four writers living in Northern California and Portland during the early, heady days of the Beat scene. A time of youth and opportunity, this story mixes the excitement of beginning with the melancholy of ambition, often thwarted and never satisfied. Loss of innocence is only the first price you pay. These are people, men and women, tender with expectation, at risk and in love, and Carpenter also carefully draws a portrait of these two remarkable places, San Francisco and Portland, in the 50s and early 60s, when the writers and bohemians were busy creating the groundwork for what came to be the counterculture. Recently discovered in a complete penultimate manuscript, having been lost since the author’s death, we re thrilled to see this book into print. A great champion of Don Carpenter, Jonathan Lethem, has taken on the task of editing and developing this last draft into the shape we imagine Carpenter would have himself accomplished had he lived to see this through. And Lethem provides a wonderful introduction to this book, to Carpenter, and to the broad influence of his work which resonates until this very day.
