Il reportage fotografico che Luca Villata ha dedicato alla "Città delle Arti e della Scienza", il maggiore complesso culturale d'Europa progettato dal celebre architetto valenciano Santiago Calatrava. A Valencia, è nata in questi ultimi anni una città nella città: un autentico polo avveniristico e tecnologico dedicato alla cultura, che è l'oggetto di questa pubblicazione. Lungo l'antico alveo del fiume Turia, in un parco di 350.000 metri quadrati, Santiago Calatrava ha firmato la "Città delle Arti e della Scienza". Ormai simbolo della città di Valencia è il gigantesco occhio che si ricompone con lo specchiarsi nell'acqua, il cui bulbo e il cui centro sono il planetario stesso.

A Steamwood, nel piccolo regno di Enchanted Forest, Biancaneve e il suo principe hanno conseguito il tanto meritato lieto fine dando persino alla luce una bambina, riflesso della madre: Biancabrina. Una felicità raggiunta a discapito però della “povera” Grimilde che, sopravvissuta, si è nascosta nella cittadina di Steamgrow e ha ordito una tremenda vendetta a danno della figliastra, lanciando nel momento più opportuno una maledizione sul regno, un sortilegio a cui, per sua sfortuna, Biancabrina è riuscita a sottrarsi. Tra elementi della fiaba classica e quelli innovativi dello steampunk, una nuova improbabile principessa tenterà di riconquistare il regno che le spetta di diritto e apporre la parola fine sulla sua “nonnastra”. Nell’impresa non sarà sola, ma accompagnata dal fidato amico Dopey e i suoi mecha-nani. Biancabrina riuscirà a guadagnarsi il lieto fine e portare a compimento la sua vendetta o sarà ostacolata dalle creature di Steamwood e dal Narratante, sommo signore di quelle terre? Tra ferro e vapore, magie e pozioni, ottone e marchingegni, tutto ha inizio con… Once Upon a Steam. ONCE UPON A STEAM Steamwood non è un regno da favola. È immerso nel vapore e le sue esalazioni nascondono le stelle, lasciando intravedere nel cielo soltanto una cupa vastità illuminata da due lune gemelle. In un’ambientazione a tratti vittoriana e a tratti steampunk, si muovono i protagonisti delle novelle della serie, incontrandosi – e scontrandosi – sullo sfondo di un universo in bilico tra l’incanto e una minacciosa profezia circa l’arrivo della Stagione dell’Insomnia. Il Narratante, una figura misteriosa senza volto né voce, farà da collante alle varie storie, manifestandosi in modi sorprendenti. Ogni racconto è la rivisitazione di una fiaba classica, ben conosciuta dai lettori, ma che si rivelerà ai loro occhi con nuove sfumature. DICONO DI QUEST'EPISODIO: “Se amate le rivisitazioni delle favole classiche, se volete avvicinarvi allo steampunk con qualcosa di soft e se avete sempre trovato Biancaneve di una noia mortale, armatevi di Kindle e correte a conoscere Biancabrina: non vi deluderà.” (DEVILISHLY STYLISH) “L'autrice non si limita a una rivisitazione della fiaba di Biancaneve, ma ne crea un ideale proseguimento utilizzando personaggi ed elementi già conosciuti per creare qualcosa di avvincente, unico, inaspettato.” (LEGGENDO ROMANCE) “Steamwood è caratterizzato davvero bene e l'autrice riesce a farti entrare in questo mondo tutto vapori e ingranaggi, e a fartene innamorare.” (LA DAMA DEI LIBRI) “Non posso fare a meno di consigliare questo racconto a chi ama le storie dei Grimm rivisitate, con una vena steampunk e dark che farà impazzire molti e con un finale... non proprio da favola o da vissero felici e contenti.” (GEEKY BOOKS)

After saving Brooklyn from a nest of vampires, Amanda Colt and Marco Catalano are a little banged up. He's been given a job offer to deal with vampires in San Francisco, and it's a tempting offer - it would get him away from Amanda, his feelings for her, and get her away from the darkness inside him. When a death in the family compels Marco to move to the West Coast, they're both left to fend for themselves. But when a creature known only as "Mister Day" leaves their world in tatters, they must once more join forces against the darkness. Only "Day" is no vampire, but a creature beyond their experience. It will take the combined might of Marco, Amanda, and all of their allies just to slow it down. They have no weapons that can kill him. They have no ways to imprison him. To even fight him is death. But they have to try, or face the end of everything they love.
