  • ISBN : 1618249266
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

A collection of original fiction by Hugo and Nebula award winning SF legend Gardner Dozois. The collection contains legendary science fiction tales _A Special Kind of Morning,Ó _Chains of the Sea,Ó the riveting title story, _The Visible Man,Ó and twelve other Dozois-authored stories. With an introduction by Robert Silverberg. From the Silverberg introduction: I invite your attention to the rhythms of the prose, the balancing of clauses, the use of alliteration, metaphor, and irony, the tough, elegant sinews of the vocabulary. It is a paragraph of splendid construction, a specimen of prose that shows honorable descent from Chaucer and Shakespeare, Pope and Dryden, Defoe and Dickens, the prose of a man who knows what he wants to say and who says it eloquently and effectively. Dozois is known in his fiction for his beautiful evocation of setting and emotional intensity within a truly alien and often austere vision of the future. He is a science fiction master of the first order¾a fact fully on display in this outstanding collection. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). "Lyric, haunting, heartbreaking¾this is science fiction at its best."¾George R.R. Martin "My generation of writers has produced relatively few authentic masters. . .Gardner Dozois is one of them."¾William Gibson

The Visible Man
  • Author : Henri Cole
  • Publisher : Farrar, Straus and Giroux
  • Release : 2014-08-12
  • ISBN : 1466877790
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

"To write what is human, not escapist," is Henri Cole's endeavor. In The Visible Man he pursues his aim by folding autobiography and memory into the thirty severe and fiercely truthful lyrics--poems presenting a constant tension between classical repose and the friction of life--that make up this exuberant book. This work, wrote Harold Bloom, "persuades me that Cole will be a central poet of his generation. The tradition of Wallace Stevens and Hart Crane is beautifully extended in The Visible Man, particularly in the magnificent sequence 'Apollo.' Keats and Hart Crane are presences here, and Henri Cole invokes them with true aesthetic dignity, which is the mark of nearly every poem in The Visible Man."

I Wear the Black Hat

I Wear the Black Hat
  • Author : Chuck Klosterman
  • Publisher : Simon and Schuster
  • Release : 2013-07-09
  • ISBN : 1439184518
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

One-of-a-kind cultural critic and New York Times bestselling author Chuck Klosterman “offers up great facts, interesting cultural insights, and thought-provoking moral calculations in this look at our love affair with the anti-hero” (New York magazine). Chuck Klosterman, “The Ethicist” for The New York Times Magazine, has walked into the darkness. In I Wear the Black Hat, he questions the modern understanding of villainy. When we classify someone as a bad person, what are we really saying, and why are we so obsessed with saying it? How does the culture of malevolence operate? What was so Machiavellian about Machiavelli? Why don’t we see Bernhard Goetz the same way we see Batman? Who is more worthy of our vitriol—Bill Clinton or Don Henley? What was O.J. Simpson’s second-worst decision? And why is Klosterman still haunted by some kid he knew for one week in 1985? Masterfully blending cultural analysis with self-interrogation and imaginative hypotheticals, I Wear the Black Hat delivers perceptive observations on the complexity of the antihero (seemingly the only kind of hero America still creates). As the Los Angeles Times notes: “By underscoring the contradictory, often knee-jerk ways we encounter the heroes and villains of our culture, Klosterman illustrates the passionate but incomplete computations that have come to define American culture—and maybe even American morality.” I Wear the Black Hat is a rare example of serious criticism that’s instantly accessible and really, really funny.
