Soon to be an HBO original series, Watchmen, the groundbreaking series from award-winning author Alan Moore, presents a world where the mere presence of American superheroes changed history--the U.S. won the Vietnam War, Nixon is still president, and the Cold War is in full effect.

Along the way, the concept of the superhero is dissected as an unknown assassin stalks the erstwhile heroes.

The Mirror of Love
This epic poem recounts the history of same-sex love, revealing a hidden side of Western culture through the lives of its greatest artists. Sappho, Michelangelo, Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Oscar Wilde, and many others are woven into this rich, visceral piece. Originally written fourteen years ago, The Mirror of Love sprang from Moore's activist heart as a reaction to Britain's controversial anti-gay law, Clause 28. In the past, Mirror has been translated into both a comic book and a stage production, but Top Shelf presents it as it was meant to be, a hardcover book illustrated with over forty full-color photographs from acclaimed artist Jose Villarrubia. Included in the 128-page special edition is an essay about the poem and its previous incarnations, an index of characters and places, a selection of classic poems quoted in the text, and a bibliography.

Jerusalem
The New York Times bestseller from the author of Watchmen and V for Vendetta finally appears in a one-volume paperback. Begging comparisons to Tolstoy and Joyce, this “magnificent, sprawling cosmic epic” (Guardian) by Alan Moore—the genre-defying, “groundbreaking, hairy genius of our generation” (NPR)—takes its place among the most notable works of contemporary English literature. In decaying Northampton, eternity loiters between housing projects. Among saints, kings, prostitutes, and derelicts, a timeline unravels: second-century fiends wait in urine-scented stairwells, delinquent specters undermine a century with tunnels, and in upstairs parlors, laborers with golden blood reduce fate to a snooker tournament. Through the labyrinthine streets and pages of Jerusalem tread ghosts singing hymns of wealth and poverty. They celebrate the English language, challenge mortality post-Einstein, and insist upon their slum as Blake’s eternal holy city in “Moore’s apotheosis, a fourth-dimensional symphony” (Entertainment Weekly). This “brilliant . . . monumentally ambitious” tale from the gutter is “a massive literary achievement for our time—and maybe for all times simultaneously” (Washington Post).

Tax Book 2020
Now in its 23rd year, the Tax Book is the authoritative commentary on the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997. I can’t remember when I have been so impressed before by a book. What is astonishing is the sheer simplicity of the idea behind it. It is so simple as to amount to genius. What the tax book does is to take the Consolidated Taxes Act 1997 and produce what appears to be an identical copy of that Act. Each section and schedule, each subsection and paragraph of the original Act appears. Looking at it you would be convinced you are reading the actual legislation. It is only when you do read it that you realise it couldn’t be the legislation. Because you can actually understand it! What Alan Moore has done is to rewrite the Consolidated Taxes Act 1997, subsection by subsection, in plain English. I don’t believe I have ever seen a book which is laid out to look exactly the same as the original legislation, and which instead of attempting a global birds-eye view of each section tackles each subsection in turn and explains exactly what that subsection is intended to mean. This version of the legislation is so much more readable! I unreservedly recommend this book to every tax practitioner. Frank Carr, KPMG, Irish Tax Review Alan Moore BA BComm MBA CTA has 40 years' experience in tax: VAT, CAT, Income Tax, Corporation Tax and CGT. He was consultant to Revenue on the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997. He is founder and CEO of Tax World Ltd.
