In 2005, Brandon Sanderson debuted with Elantris, an epic fantasy unlike any other then on the market. To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Tor is reissuing Elantris in a special edition, a fresh chance to introduce it to the myriad readers who have since become Sanderson fans. This new edition begins with a preface by author Dan Wells, the first person to read the completed novel, and a new afterword by Sanderson explaining how he came to write the book and its place in the Cosmere, the unified universe of all his Tor novels. Also included is an expanded version of the "Ars Arcanum" appendix, with more of the technical details of the book's magic that fans can never get enough of. Elantris was truly a milestone both for Sanderson and for the genre of epic fantasy. It deserves this special treatment, something Tor has done only once before, with Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game. Sanderson fans old and new will be excited to discover it.

With mythic sweep and epic scope, David Gemmell’s bestselling novels of magic and adventure feature brooding heroes who fight to preserve all that is good and honorable in themselves and in the worlds through which they stride like lonely giants. In times of terror and despair, theirs are the swords that carve a shining path, inspiring others to follow. Even after their deaths, their names live on. . . . A thousand years after they fell in battle, two heroes—Druss and Skilgannon—are revered throughout the war-torn lands of the Drenai. Yet men and women live in abject fear of the Joinings, abominable meldings of man and beast, and of their mistress, the dark sorceress known as the Eternal. None can stave off these ruthless foes. But what if the soul of one such hero could be called back from the void, his bones housed again in flesh? An ancient prophecy foretold that Skilgannon would return in his people’s darkest hour. To most, this is a foolish hope. But not so to Landis Kan. For years, as the power of the Eternal grew, Kan searched for the tomb of Skilgannon the Damned. And at last, he found it, gathering up the bones and performing the mystic ritual. But the reborn hero is an enigma: a young man whose warrior skills are blunted and whose memories are fragmented. This Skilgannon is a man out of time, marooned in a world as strange to him as a dream, remote from all he knew and loved. Or nearly all. Before bringing Skilgannon back, Landis Kan experimented upon other bone fragments found in the hero’s tomb. That ritual resulted in a surly giant who possessed astounding strength, but no memories. To Kan, he was a dangerous failure. But to Skilgannon, this giant represented their last hope. For as the ageless evil of the Eternal threatens to drown the Drenai lands in blood, two legendary heroes will once again lead the way to freedom.

Bane the Bastard is the illegitimate son of the Rigante king who men called Demonblade. Born of treachery, Bane grew up an outcast in his own land, feared by his fellow highlanders, and denied by the father whose unmistakable mark he bore–the eyes of Connavar, one tawny brown, the other emerald green.

Now fighting as a gladiator in the blood-soaked arenas of the Empire, Bane lives for one thing: revenge. And he pursues his goal with the same single-minded determination that won his father a crown. But more is at stake than a young warrior’s quest for vengeance. The armies of the Stone are preparing to march on the lands of the Rigante. The fate of human and Seidh alike will be decided by the clash of swords–and by the bonds of twisted love and bitterness between a father and a son . . . From the Paperback edition.

En cette seconde moitié du XVIIIe siècle, le jeune François Dautrec ne doute pas de son avenir : il sera un saint pareil à ceux dont La Légende Dorée raconte les vies miraculeuses. Sa mère Augustine et son précepteur l'abbé Sardine ne pourraient connaître là de plus grand bonheur, n'en déplaise à son père, le jovial et quelque peu paillard Antoine-. Mais c'est oublier que les voies qui mènent à Dieu n'appartiennent qu'à Lui, et qu'il Lui arrive parfois de les rendre bien étonnantes. Un truculent roman métaphysique. " ... Elle ouvre les yeux, parait surprise. Son regard croise celui de François. Va-t-elle appeler pour qu'on chasse l'indiscret? Non, son visage s'illumine d'un sourire gourmand, elle lui tend les bras! D'un soupir, sa bouche muette l'invite à s'approcher, à l'embrasser. François sent son corps parcouru des pieds à la tête d'un frisson brutal. Que faire? Est-ce un piège? Va-t-il perdre la tête? Est-ce cela le désir? Quelle violence! Au prix d'un effort inouï, il se tourne vers le crucifix. Horreur! Le Fils de Dieu lui-même tient son regard rivé sur la femme, une grimace lubrique déforme ses traits... Non! Blasphème! Blasphème!... "
