To Visit the Queen (The Book of Night With Moon, Book 2)
Warner/Aspect (trade paperback, 354 pages, $14.99/$18.99 Can)
Publication date: March 1, 1999

The adventures of the feline sorcerers and gate-keepers from The Book of Night With Moon continue. Rhiow, Urruah, and Arhu, the wizard cats who saved New York City in the first novel, are summoned to London to deal with a crisis which affects the very fabric of time: the evil Lone Power has induced a London, gate to malfunction, allowing humans to accidentally slide into and out of the past. As they investigate they soon discover the past is already changing -- Queen Victoria was assassinated in 1874, and Britain has triggered a nuclear war.

A Wizard Abroad (Wizardry Series, Book 4)
Magic Carpet/Harcourt Brace (reprint, paperback, 340 pages, $6/$8 Can)
Publication date: May, 1999 (First Edition: September 1997)

Duane's Wizardry Series began with the popular So You Want to be a Wizard?, in which thirteen-year-old Nita found a library book on wizardry which guided her into another dimension, and continued with Deep Wizardry and High Wizardry. "In the sequel to High Wizardry, Nita's parents send her to Ireland to get her away from her partner in wizardry, Kit, but Nita soon finds herself and a host of Irish wizards battling evil in a place where the legends and monsters of the country's mythology have become a reality."

The Book of Night With Moon (The Book of Night With Moon, Book 1)
Warner Aspect (reprint, paperback, 446 pages, $6.50 US/$8.50 Can)
Publication date: February, 1999 (First Edition: December 1997)

The author of The Door Into Fire and Deep Wizardry steps into the territory of Watership Down and Tailchaser's Song with an epic fantasy featuring four feline heroes. Rhiow seems a perfectly ordinary New York City cat. Or so her humans think--but she is much more than she appears. When an ancient evil conquers the mystic Gates beneath Grand Central Station, flooding New York with surreal horror from another dimension, Rhiow and her partners Saash and Urruah, collaborators of wizards and skilled in the mystic arts, are called upon to renew their battle with the Children of the Serpent. The tale continues in To Visit the Queen, out in trade paperback next month.
Review by Todd Richmond
Spider-Man: The Octopus Agenda
An investigation into cellular phone fraud brings Peter Parker into the thick of a plot involving unique counterfeiting equipment, a large stockpile of bombs, plans to destabilize the world's economy and destroy several major cities -- and his multi-armed nemesis, Dr. Octopus! Previously published by Putnam. Line drawings. Her previous Spiderman novel was The Lizard Sanction.
Star Trek: The Next Generation: Intellivor
And another Star Trek book -- but wait a minute, this has an interesting plot. This is from the marketing copy: "The Great Rift lies between the Sagitarius and Orion arms of the galaxy. Stars are scarce there, beyond the authority of the Federation, and legends abound of lost civilizations and of ancient monsters that prey on those who dare to venture into the vast darkness between the stars. When several ships and colonies mysteriously disappear into the Rift, the U.S.S. Enterprise leads an expedition to investigate various disturbing reports. Accompanied by two other Federation starships, Picard and his fellow captains discover a bizarre menace of unimaginable power. And the only way to trap this destructive entity is to use the Enterprise as bait." Star Trek, mysteries, and creepy space monsters. I like it.
Deep Wizardry
Harcourt Brace/Magic Carpet
When bored teenagers find a How-To manual for wizardry, they end up fighting evil all over the place. Bet they wished they'd rented a movie instead.
