Описание: A drifter working as a ranch hand in East Texas must protect a widow and her young son from the ruthless criminal who is determined to destroy them.

Carl Herbold is a cold-blooded psychopath who has just escaped the penitentiary where he was serving a life sentence. Bent on revenge, he's going back to where he began: Blewer County, Texas.

Born deaf and recently widowed, Anna Corbett fights to keep the ranch that is her son's birthright, unaware that she is at the center of Herbold's horrific scheme -- and that her world of self-imposed isolation is about to explode . . .

When drifter Jack Sawyer arrives at Anna's ranch asking for work, he makes it his mission to protect the innocent woman and her son from Herbold's rage. But Sawyer can't outrun the secrets that stalk him -- or the day of reckoning awaiting them all.

Описание:

This book examines the writing of David Foster Wallace, hailed as the voice of a generation on his death. Critics have identified horror of solipsism, obsession with sincerity and a corresponding ambivalence regarding postmodern irony, and detailed attention to contemporary culture as the central elements of Wallace's writing. Clare Hayes-Brady draws on the evolving discourses of Wallace studies, focusing on the unifying anti-teleology of his writing, arguing that that position is a fundamentally political response to the condition of neo-liberal America.

She argues that Wallace's work is most unified by its resistance to closure, which pervades the structural, narrative and stylistic elements of his writing. Taking a broadly thematic approach to the numerous types of 'failure', or lack of completion, visible throughout his work, the book offers a framework within which to read Wallace's work as a coherent whole, rather than split along the lines of fiction versus non-fiction, or pre- and post-Infinite Jest, two critical positions that have become dominant over the last five years. While demonstrating the centrality of 'failure', the book also explores Wallace's approach to sincere communication as a recurring response to what he saw as the inane, self-absorbed commodification of language and society, along with less explored themes such as gender, naming and heroism.

Situating Wallace as both a product of his time and an artist sui generis, Hayes-Brady details his abiding interest in philosophy, language and the struggle for an authentic self in late-twentieth-century America.

Описание:

The setting: New York, the early 1940s, with the spectre of a red-hot Europe at war.

At the center of Kathleen Spivack s "Unspeakable Things" Anna (known as the Rat), an exotic Hungarian countess with the face of an angel, beautiful eyes and a seraphic smile, with a passionate intelligence, an exquisite ugliness, and the power to enchant Her second cousin Herbert, a former minor Austrian civil servant who believes in Esperanto and the international rights of man, a wheeler-dealer in New York, powerful in the social sphere, yet under the thumb of his wife, Adeline Michael, their missing homosexual son Felix, a German pediatrician who dabbles in genetic engineering The Tolstoi String Quartet, four men and their instruments, who for twenty years lived as one, playing the great concert halls of Europe, for whom music is their life; escaping to New York from Bremerhaven, smuggled out on a German submarine, their money sewn into the red silk linings of their instrument cases.

And watching them all, Herbert s eight-year-old granddaughter, Maria, witnessing the family s strange comings and goings, being regaled at night when most are asleep with the intoxicating, thrilling stories of their secret pasts of lives lived in St. Petersburg of husbands being sent to the front and large, dangerous debts owed to the tsar of imperial Russia, and of a strange pact made in desperation between the Rat and the mystic faith healer Grigori Rasputin, their meeting night after night in Rasputin s apartments, and the spell-binding, unspeakable things done there in the name of penance and pleasure.

Описание: The story of the USS Indianapolis is well-known. After delivering crucial components of the atomic bomb that would level Hiroshima in 1945, the Indianapolis was sunk by a Japanese submarine in the South China Sea. Of the nearly 1,200 men aboard, 900 survived the torpedoing, spilling into the sea. White tip sharks began attacking the next morning and after four days only 300 sailors were alive to rescue.

Less famous are the many stories of ships sinking in shark-infested waters with gruesome results. Such as the Cape San Juan, a US troop transport ship that was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in the Pacific Ocean near the Fiji Islands; nearly 700 of the survivors were killed by sharks. Or the HMS Birkenhead, which sunk off Danger Point, South Africa, in 1852, resulting in 440 shark-related fatalities. In 1927, the luxury Italian cruise liner Principessa Maldafa sank ninety miles off the coast of Albrohos Island while heading to Porto Seguro, Brazil. Nearly 300 who survived the wreck were killed by sharks. In 1909, the French steamer La Seyne collided with British India Steamship Co. liner Onda near Singapore, twenty-six miles from land. One hundred and one people were eventually killed by sharks.

In the water, human intelligence is no match for a shark's brutal, destructive instincts. Sharks are born to kill and eat: They detect distress, smell blood--and attack. Marine disasters such as those above result in humans becoming prey, floating in inner space as shadowy sharks swim below, ready to attack. Helpless to save yourself--floating and waiting, watching the malevolent creatures circle, knowing what will happen . . . a sudden swirl of water, a cloud of blood, the searing pain . . . until there is no more. This is unspeakable horror

Описание: Some secrets should never be brought to light Murder, madness, and terrible realities haunt the pages of Abdul Alhazred's horrifying tome, the dread Necronomicon. The Revelations cycle for Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game moves to its penultimate Asylum Pack, The Unspeakable Pages. The game's rival factions delve into four versions of the Necronomicon, and a host of new characters seek to gain power from its secrets. Meanwhile, the ignorant masses continue their mundane routines, blissfully unaware of the Ancient Ones, monsters, and magicians who seek this dark knowledge to manipulate reality itself. While the key to the fate of the world may lie in Abdul Alhazred's dread tome, the Revelations cycle moves toward its climactic finale. Sixty new cards (3 copies each of 20 different cards) deepen the game's eerie Lovecraftian horror as cultists, lunatics, and investigators all delve into The Unspeakable Pages
