TELOS PUBLISHING NEWSLETTER - 12 June 2011
NEW BOOKS ANNOUNCED
We're proud to announce two new titles which should be available over the next few months. Work on these has been progressing and they are nearly ready for print now. Ordering details for both will be on the Telos website soon, and covers can be seen on the Telos Facebook page.
HEAR THE ROAR! THE UNOFFICIAL AND UNAUTHORISED GUIDE TO THE HIT 1980S SERIES THUNDERCATS
by DAVID CRICHTON
Originally broadcast in 1985, ThunderCats has become one of the most enduring animated series of its era. For the first time in print, Hear the Roar! documents every aspect of the production of this iconic show – told by the people who made it.
Featuring over 80 exclusive interviews with cast and crew members, this definitive reference guide charts ThunderCats' creation and development, drawing on a wealth of never-before-seen production paperwork and leaving no stone unturned.
Dedicated chapters highlight the writing, animating, scoring and recording of ThunderCats, while a comprehensive story guide reviews all 130 episodes, including notes from the scriptwriters themselves! The legendary ThunderCats toy line from LJN Toys is documented too, and even the associated series SilverHawks is explored.
This essential guide to ThunderCats demonstrates why the show continues to thrive, while many of its contemporaries have faded into obscurity.
500pp approx. A5 paperback book. £16.99
ISBN 978-1-84583-038-0 (pb)

HUNTED! THE UNOFFICIAL AND UNAUTHORISED GUIDE TO SUPERNATURAL SEASONS 1-3
by SAM FORD and ANTONY FOGG
Immerse yourself in the dark and dangerous world of the Winchester brothers ...
Descend into the delicious detail of demon hunting and deadly mysteries ...
Join the authors of Hunted on an in-depth voyage of discovery as they follow Sam and Dean Winchester through three seasons of hunting things and saving people; searching for their dad and dealing with their personal destinies; while never losing sight of the most important asset in their war against supernatural monsters – their own family. And, where Dean’s concerned anyway, where the next hot chick carrying a cheeseburger is coming from.
The journey also takes in the making of the series: the goofs, the actors’ comments and the writing decisions – good and bad – while providing a critical commentary on all aspects of the show: from the clothes and the music, to the car and the guest stars.
Let Hunted be your guide to the world of Supernatural, and learn how to hunt demons the Winchester way.
500pp approx. A5 paperback book. £15.99
ISBN 978-1-84583-039-7 (pb)

HOWE'S TRANSCENDENTAL TOYBOX: UPDATE NO 3 is currently with Arnold for final layout and design. We're really sorry that the publication of this book keeps getting put back, but unfortunately it is falling foul of a variety of real-world issues which are preventing it from being completed.
