The sequel to the #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon Strange Planet, featuring more hilarious and poignant adventures from the fascinating inhabitants of Nathan W. Pyle's colorful world. In this eagerly awaited sequel, Nathan takes us back to his charming and instantly recognizable planet colored in bright pinks, blues, greens, and purples, providing more escapades, jokes, and p h r a s e s. Nathan mixes his most popular Instagram comics with more than thirty original works created exclusively for this second volume to explore four major topics: traditions, nature, emotions, and knowledge.

Bright, colorful, and whimsical—yet charmingly familiar—Stranger Planet is out-of-this-world fun.

Books Description:

Rosemary, jeune humaine inexpérimentée, fuit sa famille de richissimes escrocs. Elle est engagée comme greffière à bord du Voyageur, un vaisseau qui creuse des tunnels dans l’espace, où elle apprend à vivre et à travailler avec des représentants de différentes espèces de la galaxie : des reptiles, des amphibiens et, plus étranges encore, d’autres humains. La pilote, couverte d’écailles et de plumes multicolores, a choisi de se couper de ses semblables ; le médecin et cuistot occupe ses six mains à réconforter les gens pour oublier la tragédie qui a condamné son espèce à mort ; le capitaine humain, pacifiste, aime une alien dont le vaisseau approvisionne les militaires en zone de combat ; l’IA du bord hésite à se transférer dans un corps de chair et de sang... Les tribulations du Voyageur, parti pour un trajet d’un an jusqu’à une planète lointaine, composent la tapisserie chaleureuse d’une famille unie par des liens plus fondamentaux que le sang ou les lois : l’amour sous toutes ses formes. Loin de nous offrir un space opera d’action et de batailles rangées, Becky Chambers signe un texte tout en humour et en tendresse subtile. Elle réussit le prodige de nous faire passer en permanence de l’exotisme à la sensation d’une familiarité saisissante.

Books Description:

Christopher a quinze ans. Il comprend les mathématiques et la théorie de la relativité. Ce qu'il ne comprend pas bien, ce sont les autres êtres humains. Il aime les listes, les plans et la vérité. Il déteste le jaune et le marron. Il n'est jamais allé plus loin que le bout de sa rue tout seul. Pourtant, lorsqu'il découvre le chien de sa voisine transpercé d'une fourche, il décide de partir à la recherche du meurtrier et de s'en inspirer pour écrire un roman policier. Mais son enquête va bouleverser le délicat équilibre de l'univers qu'il s'était construit... "Pour vous faire une idée de ce roman, pensez à des livres tels Le Bruit et la Fureur, L'Attrape-coeurs ou l'un des récits d'Oliver Sacks." New York Times "Une oeuvre exceptionnelle." Sunday Telegraph "Un écrivain empreint de sagesse et d'humour noir, doué d'une rare qualité de compassion. Un succès sans précédent." Ian McEwan

Books Description:

Have you ever wished you could understand that soldier you know and love better? Or perhaps youre a soldier yourself who feels as if no one really understands what youve been through. In Hope on a Strange Planet, author Chaplain Stephen Dicks seeks to provide a deeper understanding of the experiences of an American in the military by sharing this personal narrative. He came up through the ranks in the US Army from a private to an officer, with two long tours in Iraq. From Baghdad and Mosul, attached to a combat support hospital during some of the hardest fighting, to his final tour with the Fortieth MPs out of Fort Leavenworth and the 2011 withdrawal of US troops, Chaplain Dicks offers insight into the life and thoughts of a US soldier deployed to a strange planet in the middle of a combat zone. He gives hope to those who have been there that they can survive. In this memoir, an army chaplain presents his life story with humor, pride, and sorrow, along with a firsthand understanding of the sacrifices the soldiers and their families make each day.

Books Description:

Attention : ceci n’est PAS un livre pour enfants ! Avis à tous les parents exténués par leurs adorables bambins refusant de s’endormir le soir : ce livre d’une « délicieuse obscénité » (Newsweek) est fait pour vous. Dodo fait le tigre au cœur de la jungle immense. Du haut de son arbre, même le moineau se tait. Ton doudou, tu peux te le mettre où je pense. Fais pas chier. Ferme les yeux. Fous-moi la paix. Qui n’a jamais rêvé de troquer les mièvreries des comptines enfantines pour une berceuse un peu moins hypocrite et un peu plus proche de la réalité ? Qui n’a jamais rêvé de laisser libre cours à son exaspération face à une progéniture rétive au sommeil ? Vous n’avez jamais osé parler ainsi à votre enfant ? Les auteurs de ce jouissif détournement de la littérature jeunesse l’ont fait pour vous. Ce qui n’était au départ qu’une pochade, imaginée par un jeune papa au bord de la crise de nerfs, s’est transformé en un véritable phénomène de société aux États-Unis : Dors et fais pas chier, non content de devenir le best-seller le plus inat-tendu de l’année (450 000 exemplaires vendus en 2 mois), a déclenché une déferlante de réactions et de débats dont toute la presse (New York Times, New Yorker, Washington Post, et en France, avant même sa parution, Courrier International, Rue89, Le Monde...) s’est fait l’écho.

Books Description:

Riley Cooper est en cavale. Misha Tokarev, l’amour de sa vie, s’est révélé être un assassin au service de la mafia russe, et Riley a toujours mis une limite à « meurtre prémédité » dans sa charte des défauts acceptables. McClane, un système de protection extraterrestre, est lui aussi en fuite, car il est responsable, d’une part, du crash accidentel d’un vaisseau spatial sur le territoire terrestre, et d’autre part d’avoir échappé à sa détention aux mains des forces armées américaines. Prototype défectueux, McClane était prévu pour la casse. Son sabotage du vaisseau a mis un terme à son funeste destin, mais il a été baptisé « chevaucheur d’os » pour une bonne raison : il ne peut pas vivre sans un hôte corporel. C’est pour ça qu’il finit par se cacher dans le corps de Riley. Leur partenariat réticent évolue bientôt en quelque chose de bien plus puissant (et personnel) que tout ce qu’ils auraient pu imaginer. Ensemble, ils embarquent sur un road-trip infernal, rendu encore plus exaltant par les troupes gouvernementales et les gros bras de la mafia qui leur collent aux trousses. Mais Misha est bien décidé à récupérer Riley et il est prêt à tout pour assurer sa sécurité. Quand un tueur à gages et un extra-terrestre allient leurs forces, ils découvrent très vite l’impressionnante étendue de leur potentiel de destruction. Il faudra toute la force et la détermination de Riley pour les guider à travers les ennuis qu’ils se créeront eux-mêmes.

Books Description:

Mail order brides of the future travel from Earth to an icy planet to meet the alien men of their dreams. This boxed set contains all four books of the Alien Mate series: Alien Mate (book 1); Alien Attraction (Book 2), Alien Intention (Book 3) and Alien Mischief (Book 4). Alien Mate Falsely convicted, she’s sentenced to life as an alien’s mail order bride… I’m Starr Elizabeth Conner. Earth’s government falsely convicted me of a crime, packed me on a ship with other female felons, and sent us to Dakon, a primitive, frozen wasteland of a planet. But I’m no barbarian’s “mail-order bride,” even if he is super tall, muscular, and the chief of his tribe. He doesn’t want a BBW blonde, either—it’s written all over his chiseled face. He’ll be truly angry if he ever learns what my “crime” was. I am Torg. I have waited 34 rotations for a mate of my own. With this shipment, I was sure to get a fine, sturdy mate who’ll bear me many daughters. Instead, I receive a small, curvy, pale-haired female who looks at me with anger and fear. It is only when we “kiss” that I believe things may work out between us. But I’m hearing rumors that Starr and her shipmates are law-breakers. To survive, Dakonians must obey all laws …or be exiled into the frozen wasteland. Just when I have found her, will I have to send my mate away? Alien Attraction How insane is it to marry an alien as a publicity stunt? I’m Sunny Weathers. You probably recognize me from my reality show, Sunny Weathers’ Excellent Adventures. I’ve had to perform a lot of crazy stunts in my career, but this one takes the cake! The producers are sending me to another planet to become an alien’s mail-order bride. I’m not allowed to tell anybody it’s a put-on, and as soon my contract is up, I’ll be leaving planet Dakon. Unfortunately, I hadn’t counted on my attraction to Mr. Tall, “Darq,” and Handsome… I’m Darq. The moment I laid eyes on the female with pretty mud-colored hair and a sunny smile, I knew she was mine. Competition for females is fierce, and I was determined to claim a mate from the latest shipment from Earth, so I broke the rules. If anyone finds out, my own brother will banish me to the icy wilderness, and I’ll lose my mate. I will do anything to keep her… Alien Intention Their attraction unleashes a perfect storm… I’m Stormy Weathers. My love life on Earth is one natural disaster after the other. I’m attracted to bad boys. In a crowd of choirboys, I’ll manage to find the jerk. All I want is a man who’ll love me and my young son, so I’m going to an icy planet to become an alien’s mail-order bride. This time will be different! The chemistry I feel with Romando is electric. It doesn’t matter what my sister or her mate or their tribe says, mutual attraction this strong can’t be wrong, so I’ll do anything to get him… I’m Romando, an outcast in my own tribe. One rash, angry act turned me into a pariah and almost got me banished. But what everyone resents the most is that I’m one of the lucky few who’ll be getting a mate. The instant Stormy Weathers blows into Dakon with the other Earth females, my horns tingle. She is meant for me, but I resist the instinct to claim her. You see, she’s related to my nemesis responsible for my outcast state. Honor and pride dictate that I reject her as a suitable mate before she undermines my good intentions. If only I could get her out of my mind… Alien Mischief Will a little mischief jeopardize her second chance for love? My name is Madison Altman. Don’t think because I’ve disguised myself as a man and have accepted a job that takes me away from Earth that I’m running away from love. That’s not true. I met the love of my life—but he was killed on our wedding day. Chaperoning crazy women traveling to Dakon to become the mail-order brides of aliens is a way to pay the bills. Unfortunately, on this latest assignment, the ship returned to Earth without me! Luckily, Enoki came to my rescue. He might be hot, and sexy as hell with his gravelly voice and throbbing horns, but he believes I’m a man, and we’re friends, not lovers. As soon as Enoki can get me a flight to Earth, I’m leaving this frozen planet for good. I’m Enoki, leader of Dakon. The Fates whispered my mate was coming. But when the shipment of females arrived, none of them was mine. My purpose now is to help the stranded Earth man return to his home planet. Even though Madison is a Terran, we’ve developed a strong bond. I know I’ll miss him, but because we’re friends, I intend to do everything I can to help him leave. Why do the whispers tell me not to let him go?
