European comic authors produced a steady stream of comic material throughout the twentieth century, but gained the world's notice in 1975 when the French magazine Metal Hurlant was founded. A new generation of artists and writers had begun. Soon publishers were producing translations of the new comics into other languages, including English, and comics creators everywhere were inspired to innovation. This is a reference work, arranged by artist or writer, to European comics from the last quarter of the twentieth century that have been translated from any European language into English. It contains a variety of material, from the innocent imperialism of Herge's Tintin to the sadistic murder for hire in Bernet's Torpedo. Albums by a single creator or artist-and-writer team of European origin are the focus; comics in periodicals and anthologies with multiple contributors are excluded. Each entry provides a plot abstract and various notes about the original comic. An author index provides brief biographical information. There is a comprehensive general index.

This collection reveals the richness of the narrative fiction of prizewinning writer Carme Riera. Riera forms part of the veritable explosion of literature by women writers in post-Franco Spain and she is specifically linked to the talented constellation of women writing in Catalan. Moveable Margins opens with an overview of Carme Riera's life and opus followed by a section with a preface by Riera and two interviews bringing the writer herself into bold relief and facilitating the reader's unmediated access to her thinking. The second section contains ten critical essays that apply widely varying critical approaches that range from feminist, psycho-analytical, formalist, poststructuralist, new historical, and intertextual to postmodern and postcolonial. The volume also features Riera's hitherto unpublished play in the Catalan original and in English translation. This book will appeal to those interested in twentieth-century Peninsular literature, comparative literature, feminist criticism, gender studies, and cultural studies.

Selected as a Top Ten Book of the Year by The Washington Post: the newly discovered last novel by the author of The Three Musketeers. Rousing, big, spirited, its action sweeping across oceans and continents, its hero gloriously indomitable, the last novel of Alexandre Dumas—lost for 125 years in the archives of the National Library in Paris—completes the oeuvre that Dumas imagined at the outset of his literary career. Indeed, the story of France from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century, as Dumas vibrantly retold it in his numerous enormously popular novels, has long been absent one vital, richly historical era: the Age of Napoleon. But no longer. Now, dynamically, in a tale of family honor and undying vengeance, of high adventure and heroic derring-do, The Last Cavalier fills that gap.
