20 Trillion Leagues Under the Sea (Gollancz, 2014, ISBN 978-0575134423), the latest SF novel by BSFA-award-winning author Adam Roberts. A perfect homage/reworking of Jules Verne's masterpiece, this tale of a doomed nuclear submarine and her terrified crew is a thrilling British riposte to the classic French SF tradition. Not only a pukka Ripping Yarn but also a horrifying full-stop to the chequered career of Verne's most infamous hero. Lavishly illustrated by this artist. Perfect for both Vernians and readers who like their SF straight-up, sans branch water.

 Luminous Chaos (Melville House, 2013, ISBN9781612191416) … the latest installment in Jean-Christophe Valtat's steampunk New Venice series. Time travel, psychedelia, gnostic intrigues, Arctic cabals, Parisian gutter-snipes, bomb-throwing anarchists and the obligatory absinthe-soaked nod at Jules Verne, this is a extraordinarily detailed, hyperbaroque continuation of Aurorarama. Lavishly illustrated by this artist as his own homage to the great Vernian illustrators such as Benett and Riou. Do not read while operating heavy machinery or making important financial decisions.

Encyclopaedia of Hell: An Invasion Manual for Demons Concerning the Planet earth and th Human Race Which Infests It … Translated from the Demonic by Martin Olson. Feral Press. ISBN 978-1936239047. With illustrations by this artist and Tony Millionaire et al. Since the customs and mores of humanity are alien and inconceivable to demons, Satan wrote this strangely poetic military handbook for the enlightenment and edification of his demon armies. The Encyclopaedia includes "Techniques of Stalking and Eating Humans," "Methods of Canning Human Pus," and "Dicing and Slicing Orphaned Children." Not suitable for small children or even the mildly religious, thank god.

Poets Ranked by Beard Weight: The Commemorative Edition
by Upton Uxbridge Underwood, edited by Gilbert Alter-Gilbert and illustrated by this artist. A tongue-in-cheek classic of Edwardian esoterica, a privately printed treatise offered by subscription to the informed man of fashion and as a divertissement au courant for the reading bins and cocktail tables of parlor cars, and smoking lounges of gentlemen’s clubs. Typifying a once-popular but nowadays seldom-encountered species of turn-of-the-century ephemera, it has become a rarity much prized by bibliophiles. See how the beards of Walt Whitman and Henry David Thoreau stack up against those of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Alfred Lord Tennyson. Published by Skyhorse, ISBN 978-1616082451.

Cocktails 
A Poetry Anthology by D.A. Powell
An anthology of verse by D.A. Powell, translated into German by Christian Lux, with English en face (2009). Illustrations by this artist. Powell won the 2011 Kingsley Tufts Award and Cocktails is a good example of his compressed, muscular style. Until a publisher lets me have a stab at illustrating Chapman or Marlowe, Powell will do for me.  Published by Lux Books, ISBN 978-3939557364.

American Candide
Dr. Jacques O'Bean's scurrilous updating of Voltaire's classic, newly translated by Mahendra Singh. Perfect reading for anyone disenchanted with America's postmodern version of retail-imperialism … The Simpsons meet Voltaire, stomp Fox TV to death and then flee to Canada to cultivate their own grow-op. College-boy-sissies will call it a Juvenalian satire upon the American penchant for feral populism and aimless xenophobia … but Candide says it's all just rage against the rage, Voltaire-dude!

“A Costaguanan helicopter pilot was supposed to drop my dead body into the ocean, said Dr. Pangloss, but thanks to his slacker Latino work ethic and inflated tropical libido, I was tossed into a hotel swimming pool full of naked hookers and drunken businessmen. The steamy mixture of gin sweat, bodily fluids and chlorinated water re-ionized my depleted synapses and neutrons and I was able to escape the tropical slut-pool under my own power. Climate change scientists will deny that anything like that could ever happen but just google it for yourself. You’ll see.”
