Bringing the Moon (and Stars) for Brisbane and Adelaide

We're reaching for the moon as our latest guest announcement lands among the stars. We're excited to welcome the lead actor from the upcoming series American Gods. Ricky Whittle plays Shadow Moon in the television adaption, based on the novel by Neil Gaiman. Prior to American Gods Ricky starred in the sci-fi series, The 100.

"Whovians" will recognize another Supa-Star: Michelle Gomez, who recently played the Doctor's arch nemesis - the renegade Time Lord Missy.

The popularity of Teen Wolf is demonstrated in the show's longevity, with a sixth season recently announced for production. It's only fitting that Supanova will also play host to Ian Bohen - best known as the alpha werewolf, Peter Hale.

Fans of animation won't be left disappointed with Futurama's John DiMaggio (Bender) and Billy West (Fry, Professor Farnsworth and Dr. Zoidberg) returning for another fun-filled tour.

Stay turned for more guest announcements as we inch closer to our Brisbane and Adelaide events in November. Check out the guests already announced on our website.

Giveaway - The Tale of Shikanoko

One of the most thrilling series of our time! In this magnificent new epic, destined to become a modern classic, bestselling Australian author Lian Hearn transports us to a mythical Japanese world set 300 years before Tales of the Otori.

Like George R. R. Martin, Lian Hearn has captivated millions of readers worldwide with her masterpiece of imagination, Tales of the Otori. Now, against a dazzling canvas of wild forest, elegant court and savage battlefield, she brilliantly brings to life the world that existed 300 years earlier. Hearn weaves an intricate tapestry - seething with intrigue, adventure and love - of two rival clans struggling over who will be crowned Emperor of the Eight Islands, in a medieval Japanese country inhabited by warriors, assassins, ghosts and guardian spirits. And as the laws of destiny play out their inexorable drama, so the battle for the Lotus Throne continues. Lord of the Darkwood is Books 3 and 4 in The Tale of Shikanoko and follows Emperor of the Eight Islands (Books 1 and 2 in the series).

Lian is best known for her beloved Tales of the Otori series, set in an imagined feudal Japan, which has sold more than four million copies worldwide and has been translated into nearly forty languages.

With thanks to Hachette Australia, and to celebrate the release of Lian's latest instalment in the Shikanoko series, we're giving you the chance to win one of five prize packs, containing a copy of Emperor of the Eight Islands and Lord of the Darkwood. Head over to our website to enter.

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV

The Final Fantasy XV adventure begins in cinemas with Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, from August 27 for a strictly limited time.

The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the sacred Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis (Sean Bean) commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king's magic, Nyx (Aaron Paul) and his fellow soldiers fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum - to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Lena Headey), captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to the empire's rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.

Luc Besson's masterpiece that unlocked the talent that is Natalie Portman. A perfect assassin. An innocent girl. They have nothing left to lose except each other. He moves without sound. Kills without emotion. Disappears without trace.
