THE GUNS OF THE SOUTH by Harry Turtledove.  Reissue.  (SWS)

Turtledove's alternate history asks two good questions: who would have won
the Civil War if the South had had better weapons--specifically, the AK-47?
And what would have happened afterwards?  James MacPherson, a Civil War
historian, calls THE GUNS OF THE SOUTH "without question the most fascinating
Civil War novel I have ever read..._must_ reading for every Civil War
student."  The Chicago _Sun-Times_ says it's "an expert exercise in
speculative history," and Orson Scott Card call Turtledove "a damn fine
storyteller" and says he "plays the game of alternate histories better than
anybody else, and THE GUNS OF THE SOUTH is Turtledove at his best."  Lest
this description begin to sound like a mere self-congratulatory quote-fest, I
will stop now.  But if you like well-thought-out alternate histories or the
Civil War, you'll probably like this book a lot.

WORKS IN PROGRESS:  Changes, Additions, Updates

(The DRIN lists only the changes to the Works in Progress report.   The
entire current report can be found on the Panix gopher (gopher.panix.com) in
the Del Rey Books subdirectory, under Publishing Information.)

NATHAN ARCHER, of _Star Trek_ and _Predator_ fame, has completed the first of
Del Rey's MARS ATTACKS novels--MARTIAN DEATHTRAP, based on the infamous/
famous trading cards that were banned in the 1960s.  In this first
installment, a Martian Death Squad corners a group of humans in a gigantic
tourist trap of a mansion.  In true, grisly tradition, not everyone will come
out alive.  (The cards inspired filmmaker Tim Burton in a similar
fashion--the _Mars Attacks_ movie is currently slated for 1997.)

PHILIP K. DICK's famous anti-utopian DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP?,
which inspired the motion picture _Bladerunner_, will feature a Roger Zelazny
introduction when it is re-released as a deluxe trade paperback next June.

THE TRANSITION OF H. P. LOVECRAFT: THE ROAD TO MADNESS will include one of
HPL's most famous Cthulhu works, AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS--which, as many
fans are aware, inspired John Carpenter as he produced _In the Mouth of
Madness_.  This volume will also contain the story "Herbert West,
Reanimator," which made the transition to celluloid when it was made into a
motion picture by Stuart Gordon.  This trade-paperback collection completes
the set that was begun a decade ago with THE BEST OF H. P. LOVECRAFT:
BLOODCURDLING TALES OF HORROR AND THE MACABRE and continued with the recent
release of THE DREAM CYCLE OF H. P. LOVECRAFT: DREAMS OF TERROR AND DEATH.

RAY W. MURILL has turned in the second MARS ATTACKS novel for Del Rey. MARS
ATTACKS: WAR DOGS OF THE GOLDEN HORDE will feature the Martian invaders
fighting the savage descendants of Ghengis Khan.  While creating this novel,
Murill did extensive research in the interest of authenticity, and had to
learn the Mongol word for "Mars."

STEVE SANSWEET continues work on the STAR WARS ENCYCLOPEDIA--perhaps the most
painstaking overview every prepared of the Star Wars universe.  This
ambitious hardcover will feature a thorough accounting of Star Wars
characters, locales, and technology.  As a bonus, it will also review the
people, places, and things that went into the _creation_ of George Lucas's
fantastic milieu.

BILL SMITH's new STAR WARS: THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO VEHICLES AND VESSELS, the
companion volume for STAR WARS: THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO CHARACTERS, will
feature detailed schematics of each spacecraft, prepared by Troy Vigil, and
dynamic new illustrations of the ships, rendered by Doug Chiang.

MARK COTTA VAZ has completed all additions, revisions, and updates for STAR
WARS: THE SECRETS OF SHADOWS OF THE EMPIRE, set for May release to tie in
with the Shadows epic.  Tracing events that take place between _The Empire
Strikes Back_ and _Return of the Jedi_ movies, STAR WARS: THE SECRETS OF
SHADOWS OF THE EMPIRE will be profusely illustrated with original video game
illustrations and storyboards, photos of all of the key creative talents, and
seminal artwork for the comic book series and Bantam novel.

DEL REY NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS===============================================

DEL REY AUTHOR ALLAN COLE HAS A WEB SITE
Science fiction and fantasy author Allan Cole invites his friends and readers
to visit him at his new home page. The address is http://www.acole.com.
Cole, best known for the _Sten_ and _Antero_ series, says the new home page
features chapters and cover illustrations of his upcoming THE WARRIOR
RETURNS, as well as a "works in progress" sample of WHEN THE GODS SLEPT, the
first in a new fantasy trilogy for Del Rey Books.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
CALL FOR INFORMATION ON OTHER AUTHOR WEB & GOPHER SITES
We're always looking for online resources about our authors.  If you know of
one, please send it in--checking first the large list we maintain on OUR web
site (http://www.randomhouse.com/delrey/) to make sure we don't already know
about it.  We're especially interested in adding new authors to our online
resources list, rather than adding a second or third site for an author who's
already represented.

LATEST EXCERPTS ONLINE======================================================

Sample chapters of some of our upcoming and recent (and some of our favorite,
neither upcoming nor recent) books are now available online (for free, of
course).  This month's books are WORLDWAR: UPSETTING THE BALANCE and
WORLDWAR: TILTING THE BALANCE by Harry Turtledove, THE CURSED by Dave Duncan,
and COMMENCEMENT by Roby James.  Descriptions above in "What's New in the
Stores."

You can get the sample chapters a few different ways:  they're on the Del Rey
Web site (http://www.randomhouse.com/delrey/) and on the Panix gopher
(gopher.panix.com) in the Del Rey Books directory; you can request them via
e-mail from the Del Rey fileserver (delrey@tachyon.com; SENDME
sample.upsetting_the_balance, sample.tilting_the_balance, sample.cursed, or
sample.commencement) and they'll be available in CompuServe's SF Library 4
and AOL's SF and Fantasy libraries, too.  (For a list of all sample chapters
available via the fileserver, send a message to delrey@tachyon.com with "LIST
sample" as the body of the message.)
