“Apocalypse is a wondrous science-fiction epic, written in beautiful blank verse, exploring ideas of humanity, memory, death, hope, and extraordinary scientific thought. . . . Even if you’re not a big reader of poetry, I promise this is a blazed trail you should follow.”—Fantasy Faction
“Frederick Turner reveals the poetic soul of science fiction”—David Brin
“A science fiction epic poem has at its command that great property of science fiction, evoking a sense of wonder in a reader. Science fiction delivers the intellectual and emotional charge of telling stories about what might happen and what people might do about it. It’s just fun to read about stuff like that.
Fred Turner’s epic poem Apocalypse is all those things: cool, as memorable as your favorite song in many spots, and, most of all, entertaining. Fun.”—from the introduction
"This rich story not only carries a thrilling plot and engaging characters, it has a beautiful heart and care to it that connects to you on a deep level. Masterful storytelling." — Ellie Ann, New York Times Bestselling Author
Magic forms both feast and famine…Carin has never known hunger. Born into the Hearthland, a lush world of fertile fields and abundant resources, her biggest worry is whether she and her three friends will find their true names on their Journeying. But when one of them is murdered on the morning of their departure, Carin’s peaceful world is stained with blood.
This critical study analyzes Stephen R. Donaldson’s role as a modern writer who uses the fantasy genre to discuss situations and predicaments germane to the modern world. Donaldson reclaims an epic vision in his Thomas Covenant novels that is lacking in most modern literature. Chapters demonstrate how this use of epic heroism helps solve seemingly insurmountable problems and provides more meaning and purpose for individuals. As Donaldson’s characters learn to transcend their world, the reader is engaged in a serious, enlightened discussion about the need for imagination, responsibility and acceptance to resolve such problems as alienation, pollution, disease and despair.
"An absolute must-read" – Shondaland
“[Rabbit] tells how it went down with brutal honesty and outrageous humor” – New York Times
They called her Rabbit.
Patricia Williams (aka Ms. Pat) was born and raised in Atlanta at the height of the crack epidemic. One of five children, Pat watched as her mother struggled to get by on charity, cons, and petty crimes. At age seven, Pat was taught to roll drunks for money. At twelve, she was targeted for sex by a man eight years her senior. By thirteen, she was pregnant. By fifteen, Pat was a mother of two.
Alone at sixteen, Pat was determined to make a better life for her children. But with no job skills and an eighth-grade education, her options were limited. She learned quickly that hustling and humor were the only tools she had to survive. Rabbit is an unflinching memoir of cinematic scope and unexpected humor. With wisdom and humor, Pat gives us a rare glimpse of what it’s really like to be a black mom in America.
