This fall we are living a little more aware of the news than usual, of the new measures that are taken to combat the pandemic and how it affects us as citizens. But. There is something indisputable.

In the Galicia of 1830, a woman faces the conventions of her time. The forest of the four winds is the most ambitious novel of Maria Oruña, a fully established author.
At the beginning of the 19th century, Dr. Vallejo traveled from Valladolid to Galicia together with his daughter Marina to serve as a doctor in a powerful monastery in Ourense. There they will discover some very particular customs and they will experience the fall of the Church. Marina, interested in medicine and botany but without permission to study, will fight against the conventions that her time imposes on knowledge and love and will be immersed in an adventure that will keep a secret of more than a thousand years.
In our day, Jon Bécquer, an unusual anthropologist who works locating lost historical pieces, investigates a legend. As soon as he began his investigations, in the garden of the old monastery the corpse of a man dressed in a Benedictine habit of the nineteenth appeared. This fact will make Bécquer go deep into the forests of Galicia looking for answers and descending the surprising steps of time.

Altea, daughter of Perseus and one of Plato's most brilliant disciples, does not know that her life and that of the baby she is expecting are in danger, nor that she has the enemy in her own home. For his part, his friend and teacher Plato risks his life to try to make his great project come true: to unite politics and philosophy, so that reason, justice and wisdom rule, instead of the empty rhetoric of the demagogues, corruption and ignorance.
As a backdrop, the rise of a new power and a general with an invincible aura put the survival of Sparta and of Athens itself at stake. An impeccable tapestry of classical Greece and the thought of the greatest philosopher of antiquity await you this fall.
Our next essential is Javier Moro and brings us a fascinating story: the American adventure of Rafael Guastavino, the Spanish architect from New York.
New York 1881: in one of the most popular neighborhoods, little Rafaelito and his father, Rafael, a renowned Valencian master builder who struggles to demonstrate his talent in the great city, live poorly. Absolute ruin lies in wait for him, but thanks to his indefatigable genius, this man will achieve fame and fortune by building the iconic buildings that have given New York its profile.
Javier Moro introduces us to the unique Rafael Guastavino, a true construction genius who dazzled the great North American magnates, conquered by the techniques he used in his works to prevent fires, the greatest evil of the nineteenth century megalopolises. From his study came constructions as "New York" as Central Station, the great hall on Ellis Island, part of the subway, Carnegie Hall, or the American Museum of Natural History. Ready to discover him this fall?
For the allies, a woman in love. For the Nazis, a shadow. For history, a legend. Imogen kealey brings us an incredible novel inspired by Nancy Wake, the greatest heroine of WWII.
Marseille, 1943. "White Mouse" is the name that the Gestapo has given to one of the most difficult members of the Resistance to catch. What the German secret police do not suspect is that a woman, Nancy Wake, hides under that pseudonym. A woman with an indomitable character and unusual courage. A happy woman with the love of her life, Henri Fiocca, a rich French businessman completely in love with her who supports her in her fight.
When her husband is captured and tortured by the Nazis, Nancy must escape from France. In her quest to save the man she loves and turn the tide of war, she will overcome any obstacle that stands in her way. In a world dominated by men, Nancy Wake will earn the respect of the maquis and lead the forces of the French Resistance in a tireless fight against injustice and horror.
Family is not a good place to keep a secret. We will discover it together with Ignacio Martinez de Pisón in his new novel.
A road along the Portuguese border, June 1977. Juan and Rosa, just teenagers, have an appointment at a clandestine abortion clinic, but an accident will prevent them from reaching their destination. Almost twenty years later, Rosa and her son Iván begin what will be the project of their life, the recovery of a campsite on the Costa Dorada, at the other end of the peninsula. Since Iván was born they have lived in different places, always provisionally, always alone, fleeing a past that will soon catch up with them.
End of season is a novel about the force, sometimes poisoned, of blood ties – About family secrets that make each generation doomed to repeat certain mistakes, and about how knowing transforms us into other people.
The gripping story of a woman and a man who chose to endure in the most difficult times. The most intense and emotional novel of the series of Episodes of an Endless War, by Almudena Grandes.
In 1954, the young psychiatrist Germán Velázquez returned to Spain to work in the Ciempozuelos women's asylum. After going into exile in 1939, he has lived in Switzerland for fifteen years, hosted by the family of Dr. Goldstein.
In Ciempozuelos Germán meets Aurora Rodríguez Carballeira, a paranoid parricide, extremely intelligent, who fascinated him at thirteen, and meets a nursing assistant, María Castejón, whom Doña Aurora taught to read and write when she was a child. Germán, attracted to María, does not understand her rejection, and suspects that his life hides many secrets. The reader will discover her modest origin as the granddaughter of the asylum gardener, her years as a maid in Madrid, her unfortunate love story, as well as the reasons why Germán has returned to Spain. Soulmates who want to flee from their respective pasts
The signing of Almudena Grandes already promises us a great novel and a book from which we will not want to look away for hours.
We finish our list of essentials with Santiago Posteguillo. The winner of the Planeta Prize brings us the bilogy of a fascinating woman who closes with this volume. If the first installment of this saga was set in 192 AD, when several men were fighting for the empire, but Julia Domna had something more ambitious in mind: founding a dynasty.
In this second part we will discover a Julia Domna with new challenges. Staying high is much more difficult than reaching. Julia is at the height of her power, but betrayal and family division threaten to spoil everything. To make matters worse, the doctor Galen diagnoses him what the Romans call Cancer. Meanwhile their children star in a brutal confrontation. In the midst of physical and moral pain, the august will cling to a love story stronger than death.

We interviewed Senshiru, the #PlanetaManga author of Wing 😍, in #PlanetaGeek. In it he tells us, among other things, how he became part of the magazine. Shall we start?
How did you get into the world of illustration / comics?
I began to be interested in comics when I was twelve years old. By entering high school and meeting new people, they taught me the wonderful world of manga. I watched anime (which I called cartoons) from a very young age, being a big fan of series like Pokémon, Detective Conan, Shin-chan … But it wasn't until that age that I discovered that those series (or almost all) came from manga. Once the door was open, I started collecting them non-stop.
Your first contact with Planeta Manga was …
Six months before the publication of the first issue, the existence of the aforementioned one reached my ears from some already registered in the magazine. I loved the idea so much that I certainly wanted to be part of it, so at the Barcelona Comic Fair and thanks to Claudio Stassi, former professor of the Joso school I attended, I met David, Planeta editor. Once the project was presented, everything else was shot.
How did Wing's plot come about?
I'm always creating stories that I'm storing up, waiting to be fully developed, but WING was the first project I decided to do from start to finish.
The truth is that I began to watch Spokkon anime and read manga of the genre, and although I loved them, from my point of view I always believed that something was missing … And that something was the daily life of people, their chores and their concerns more beyond a high school sport. That added to the fact that I am a hopeless romantic and I always like love interests in stories, regardless of gender. So I thought I'd take it all and mix it up nicely.
Therefore, WING was born from my need to tell a story that did not focus only on a specific topic but, like everything in life, went through several things at the same time, including experiences that I think we have all lived in some moment.
What did you do first: character creation or the script? How is your usual work circuit?
I first came up with the script, but only the basis of what I wanted. A slightly more developed type of synopsis. Once I had that raised, I started with the creation of characters but in a very detailed way, not just the physical one. I made a complete list of what they like, what terrifies them, their hobbies … And in the end the character himself creates the path his story takes, even though I know what I want to tell and how I want to tell it.
How do you rate the reception that the magazine has had and what would you highlight about it?
The reception it has had for me has been amazing. I think it's great how people are connecting with the magazine, the story, and the authors. From time to time someone always talks to me on my social networks to tell me that he liked WING, that he already has the magazine … Or even to complain that it has not reached him yet! And I think that's what I would highlight about her, that finally the reader has a real way of communicating with that manga author that he likes. I love that people come to talk to me, and not just to tell me what they liked, to tell me everything they think about it. Sometimes they tell me what they didn't like, or what they would change. And what I hear most, I wish it wasn't quarterly, so I guess that's good news. People want to keep reading it.
Your favorite Planet Manga series is …
It is a difficult question, because the good thing about this magazine is the amount of so varied genres and so diverse styles that it has. I think they all have their point …
Would highlight Gryphoon, with that mega story full of adventures. Backhome, which always leaves me intrigued and wanting more. And Alter Ego, which although brief has been very intense and entertaining.
Right now I'm preparing a project with a more adult nuance, it's actually about to come out of the oven, and I'm looking forward to presenting it to publishers, including Planeta of course.
The truth is that I have many stories saved in the inkwell, and it is clear that making comics with what that implies, telling my own stories, trying to convey certain messages, that people feel identified, etc. is what I really love, so I hope I don't stop.
Your social networks:
Thank you Senshiru for your enthusiasm for the magazine! 🙂

And because we come up with a much better plan! And we are sure that you are also going to love it. Couch, blanket and a warm drink to taste it little by little, while we let ourselves be trapped by the characters and the plot of a book.
Take a seat and choose which drink you are going to taste because in this post we bring you the trilogies and sagas that will catch you this fall and that you will not want to stop reading nor to refill the coffee cup. ⤵️🍁
If there is one thing that we like in detective or police series, it is those duets of characters that are like ying and yang, those characters that contradict but complement each other. And of those of us who want to read case after case, no matter how complex and obscure the mission they face.
That happens to us with the saga of the great Lorenzo Silva, starring the unforgettable Bevilacqua and Chamorro. Recently the new case of the agents arrived at our bookstores and… well… we cannot stop reading 📚 Corcira's evil.
A middle-aged man appears naked and brutally murdered on a lonely beach in Formentera. According to several testimonies collected by the Civil Guard of the islands, in the previous days he had been seen in the company of different young people in gay clubs in Ibiza. When his bosses call Bevilacqua to take over the investigation and inform him of the peculiarity of the dead, a Basque citizen convicted in his day for collaboration with ETA, the second lieutenant will understand that it is not just another case.
We will just tell you something. "Lorenzo Silva portrays the Civil Guard with a care similar to that of Le Carré when writing about British espionage." —Comments Antonio Muñoz Molina. Are you really not going to dive into the murky waters of Bevilacqua and Chamorro this fall? 😏
A summer without adventure is not a complete summer. That's why fans of fantasy and magic can't resist giving themselves a good saga. And we with them, of course. Why Cassandra clare is the author of one of the most successful youth series in recent times, a saga that accumulates as many volumes as loyal fans who wait at face value when a new book will be announced.

After his death, David Lagercrantz continued with What does not kill you makes you stronger (2015) and The man who chased his shadow (2017).
Finally last year we were able to read the book that thousands of readers longed to get their hands on: The girl who lived twice (2019). And with him know the fate of our heroine Lisbeth Salander, put the finishing touch to the Swedish phenomenon of the thriller. Because every great story deserves a great ending.
