We've got a double dose of paperback goodness aimed to please those Hellgaters who like to read and those who like to read...less. Let's hit the books!

Recently slated for a release date of April 8th, Tokyopop's Hellgate: London manga, simply titled Hellgate: London, will bit hitting shelves in just two short weeks. This graphic novel is a prequel to the actual game, taking place 18 years before you begin your adventure in Russel Square. Here is the plot synopsis from Tokyopop's website:

In the year 2020, a demon invasion strikes several cities around the globe...including London, home to college Rugby champ John Fowler and his family. But before the climatic Battle of All Hallow's Eve, John and his sister Lindsey attempted to discover the story behind what seemed to be a series of bizarre portents: an exhumed skeleton, a haunting apparition, and a powerful sword that they find in their attic. Solving the mystery, though, reveals something about their family that changes their lives forever...In the prequel to the hit video game, explore the world of Hellgate just 48 hours before the world becomes a demon-ridden, war-torn hell--and discover just what might have started it all.


"Will they survive the invasion?" "Who is the figure in red at the top?" "Are Molten Edge swords really that huge?" If these are the questions you find yourself asking, you'll be glad to know there's more information to be had on the Tokyopop website including character profiles and a word from the manga's senior editor.

Now, something for the Hellgater who's more of a traditional reader. Mel Odom has completed the second in a trilogy of novels based on the Hellgate: London universe, fourteen years before the time Hellgate: London video game takes place in. Titled Hellgate: London: Goetia, it continues where Hellgate: London: Exodus, the first book, left off:

2024: Four years after the Demons opened the planar rift known as the Hellgate, mankind's desperate struggle to survive continues. Simon Cross, expatriate of the secret Templar order, works to find and transport survivors out of the ruined city. Hiding within London's Underground system, Simon is raising an army to fight against the encroaching Darkness. Now, he battles the monsters that roam the city and fends off a jealous Knight who plans to take Simon down...all while striving to reunite the divided Templar forces.

Warren Schimmer, a Cabalist who is magically linked to a powerful demon, searches for Goetia. Also known as the Lesser Key of Solomon, this ancient artifact could provide the forces of good or evil with an edge in the ongoing war. Standing in his path is Simon Cross. Warren has made a bargain with his Demon lord for survival and the promise of vengeance against the persuasive Templar...but a Demon's promise is made to be broken.


More information on Goetia can be found at Simon & Schuster's website including an excerpt from the novel.
