The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle: The Dark of Deep Below by Patrick Rothfuss (Subterranean 30 November 2013 / $25.00) - Product Description: In the first volume of The Adventures of The Princess and Mr. Whiffle (The Thing Beneath the Bed), we learned what lurks beneath our beds. What's more, we learned that little girls are not helpless, and that princesses are not always what they seem.

In this second installment of the Princess's adventures, we learn a little more about the Princess's family. We learn how dark it is in the Deep Below... And we learn what happens when the Princess gets a little brother.

The Adventures of The Princess and Mr. Whiffle: The Dark of Deep Below is a dark twist on the classic children's picture book. Perfect for geek children and adults who love dark faerie tales, international bestselling author Patrick Rothfuss has described the Princess's adventures as, 'Calvin and Hobbes meets Coraline, with a healthy dose of Edward Gorey mixed in.'

Laddertop Books 1 - 2 by Orson Scott Card and Emily Janice Card (Tor/Seven Seas 05 November 2013 / $12.99) - Product Description: From Orson Scott Card, the author of Ender's Game comes a 384-page omnibus edition containing the first two books of an all-ages manga series!

Out of deep space, a mysterious alien race known as "The Givers" came to Earth. They gave the human race the greatest technology ever seen—four giant towers known as Ladders that rose 36,000 miles into space. Each tower culminated in a space station that harnessed the energy of the Sun to power the entire planet. As suddenly as the Givers arrived, they vanished, leaving the human race with one solemn instruction: maintain and preserve the Ladders at all costs. Due to the unique alien construction of the Laddertop space stations, however, only a skilled crew of children could perform the maintenance necessary to keep the stations running.

Twenty-five years later, back on Earth, competition is fierce to enter Laddertop Academy. Robbi and Azure, two eleven-year-old girls who are best friends, are among those vying for a spot at the prestigious academy. While one is rejected, the other takes off into space for the adventure of a lifetime. Yet soon, their destinies will collide, as they must decipher an alien message and solve an ancient mystery that could either save the Earth from invasion...or trigger its imminent destruction.
