Alaric Moebius and Basil Fox are two lovable scoundrels looking to make a quick fortune. Basil is a former SAS trooper turned Queen’s Guard by day and thief by night. Moebius is an Oxford-educated charmer with a knack for getting into trouble. Together they chase adventure under the patronage of “The Collector,” a mysterious billionaire with a taste for rare and valuable supernatural objects of the occult. Created by award-winning director RYAN SCHIFRIN, this third original short story sends the unlikely duo to India, where Basil learns that an old friend and Special Forces comrade he thought long dead is actually in the hands of a local warlord hellbent on retrieving the sacred blade Basil now carries as a momento. What secrets does this precious Kuhkri blade hide, and are they connected in supernatural ways to The Collector's current interest: the lovely and mysterious Sita Kaur...? Written by fan-favorite sci-fi author TIMOTHY ZAHN ("Star Wars: Heir to the Empire" "The Thrawn Trilogy" and more), this paranormal rescue tale expands on the series of prose and graphic novel adventures available from Magnetic Press.

The battle of Stalingrad was the turning point of World War II. The German capture of the city, their encirclement by Soviet forces shortly afterwards, and the hard-fought but futile attempts to relieve them, saw bitter attritional fighting and extremes of human misery inflicted on both sides. The surrender of General Friedrich von Paulus's army left Germany's eastern armies severely weakened, but the Red Army had suffered enormous losses as it overreached itself in trying to exploit its great victory. The war was not over. Germany would continue the fight, and the battles that took place in the winter of 1942/43 would show the tactical and operational skill of Erich von Manstein and the Wehrmacht as they attempted to avert total disaster. In this title, Prit Buttar, a renowned expert on warfare on the Eastern Front, reveals the often-overlooked German counteroffensive post-Stalingrad, and how it prevented the whole Axis front line from collapsing. Drawing on first-hand accounts, On a Knife's Edge is a story of brilliant generalship, lost opportunities and survival in the harshest theatre of war.
