He’s a wealthy A-list actor who’s a total babe, but yet is still seemingly approachable; he’s kind and generous, even giving up part of his salary for a film crew; he’s like a regular person riding the NYC subway system, except he actually offers up his seat to others. You know him, he’s the Internet’s boyfriend, Keanu Reeves! And now he’s the subject of For Your Consideration: Keanu Reeves, a new book composed of critical essays and tidbits about this Hollywood superstar and all-around nice guy.

Publisher: Quirk Books
Release date: October 1, 2019

MacTrump, the new President of the United Fiefdoms, has come to rule much to the distress of supporters of the former President, Banquo O’Bama. He thinks it will be a simple job, and that the people will beg for his legacy to continue. His first 2 years are not without bumps as he fires many people, like Stephen Bannox, causing Spicero to hide behind potted plants. He even ends up being investigated by Sir Robert of MacMueller! Whatever shall the greatest President of the United Fiefdoms to have ever lived do or tweet? One hopes he will listen to Banquo’s ghost or the spirits of the other presidents. Do you think he will?

More below on MacTrump: A Shakespearean Tragicomedy of the Trump Administration, Part I by Ian Doescher and Jacopo della Quercia.

Monster, She Wrote
The Women Who Pioneered Horror and Speculative Fiction
Hardcover | Kindle | Audiobook
By Lisa Kröger and Melanie R. Anderson
Publisher: Quirk Books
Release date: September 17, 2019

They’re the queens of horror fiction — gothic horror’s founding mother Mary Shelley, haunted house maven Shirley Jackson, and vampire queen of the damned Anne Rice. But did you know that there have been and still are many other women writers like them contributing to the genre for centuries, most of whom wrote under repressive circumstances? Monster, She Wrote: The Women Who Pioneered Horror and Speculative Fiction, a new non-fiction book from Quirk Books, gives these women and their works a spotlight.

In this 352-page compendium, authors Lisa Kröger and Melanie R. Anderson dig deep into the feminine roots of the gothic horror genre, beginning with its precursors Margaret Cavendish and Ann Radcliffe before moving on to the creator herself, Mary Shelley, author of the early 19th century classic Frankenstein.
