In the twenty-fifth century, what used to be called the Midwestern section of the United States of America, all the way from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada, has become desert. The remains of Midwest City, Oklahoma, now known as Haze Territory, is a barren red clay desert populated by only a few family councils. Fourteen-year-old Kyle Haze must help his family defend the area, just as his ancestors did over many previous generations. Means of monetary exchange, transportation, community, and industry are long gone since the only active government is that of local communities. Fighting among area clans is common when survival is at stake and resources are scarce. Those remaining in the harsh environment must migrate, mutate, adapt, or die. After the Chastain clan attacks his father, Kyle and his kin are driven from the only home they've ever known. They set out to renew their lives up north, a land foreign to them, while attempting to keep their family intact. Kyle must constantly lead them in and out of life-threatening circumstances, bringing out the best and worst of humanity in order to survive another day in their primitive world and avenge the damage done to his family by other clans.

Even though this is a work of fi ction, many of these types of events happen every day. What we often observe as coincidence are really miracles from God. Everything has a reason and every reason has a purpose. Jesus gave us a purpose in life when he told us to go forth and make disciples. What better ambition could any person have?

For years I have been saying “as soon as this is over, I’m going to write a book.” Well, it’s over…at least the physical part…and the walk has been long and hard. Clay, my second son, and I discussed writing a book for years. I’m sure his version would have been much different. I wanted him to write his own story — finding out he was gay, his feelings, and his experiences while traveling his life in California, his experiences with the new gay disease. He never did. He just lived it. His actions, his activities, and his contributions to the world are telling their own story of his life. As I was chronicling this walk, I realized Clay’s story is a story about Clay, as a person, me, as a person, and the people in our path. This book is dedicated to Clay, who was a “mixed blessing,” and to the bodies strewn along the path of the epidemic called AIDS, hewn out of history. It is my hope and the hope of those who knew and loved Clay that our experience will make someone else’s walk less painful, less lonely.

It is 1595, and the rabbi’s son Jacob is frustrated with having to live in the walled ghetto known as Jewish Town. Why can’t he venture outside of the gates and explore the beautiful city? His father warns him that Passover is a dangerous time to be a Jew and that the people from outside accuse the Jews of dreadful deeds. But one night, Jacob follows his father and two companions as they unlock the ghetto gates and proceed to the river, where they mold a human shape from the mud of the riverbank. When the rabbi speaks strange words, the shape is infused with life and the Golem of Prague is born. In this breathtaking retelling of a timeless tale, Irene N. Watts’s beautiful words are complemented by the haunting black-and-white images of artist Kathryn E. Shoemaker. From the Hardcover edition.

The phone rang, and a voice in Spanish said, "I'm Carlos. In excavations in Rome, they have found a new Gospel, in Latin, on clay tablets. The tablets went directly into the Vatican. However, I have a copy from a friend within the Vatican-we'd like to have it in English. He said, "I have a Spanish translation. If I post you the transcript, could you translate it?" I said I could. I'm simply an Australian journalist, who worked for United Press. Carlos said, "I only ask your word that you will not photocopy the Spanish version, and when you finish, you'll hand it back to me, together with a copy of your own version." Leaving me hanging out on a limb, in thin air but when I read it, I could see that it was authentic. When I finished, we met. I asked him for his phone number, and he told me they'd call me if needed. A week later, he rang, and said, "That's beautifully written, what you've done." I never heard from him again.

Born in September 1942, Joseph A. Stokes began writing short stories after he retired. There was one story (Henyas’ Tree) that mostly developed on its own. It is a story about the interactions between various aggressive, strong willed characters. The author developed an interest in human interaction while attending school. It affected the remainder of his course selections and later gave direction to a career. In 1970 he was working at a large plant. Within his first months of work, he jumped at the chance to join the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Committee. His duties involved visits to local minority organizations and meeting with employees of all ages, races, etc., on matters that might affect their work performance. The author worked 28 years as a problem-solving counselor, investigator, specialist and unit manager. It helped him understand people and the directions a person might take under stress. A strong-willed, multi-raced woman was born into a life she would not accept; a world of servitude that demanded she be dutiful to others. At an early age she was separated from her family and, therefore, was required to grow up quickly. This was done with the assistance of a surrogate mother, Haddie. It was Haddie that gave her the confidence and courage to adjust to and accept her lot in life. She was able to allow herself to commit to her affections and a life with a man who was well outside of her social status.

Jerry Jones has gone out on a limb. At the age of 51, he took out a 30-year mortgage to buy a vacant store located in Killington, Vermont, without his wife’s approval. Feeling betrayed, Monica, his wife, determines to undermine Jerry’s plans in retribution for his thoughtlessness and neglect. Along the way, Monica also toys with the possibility of a sexual fling with a man young enough to be her son. It’s another way to hurt Jerry and fulfill what she is beginning to see as a pretty empty life. Clay, the young man, is interested in Sally, another older woman who is seeking to find her own place in life. Clay’s Aunt Dora tries to guide her nephew onto the right path while she fights her own fears that someone or some thing is trying to harm her. She also has a deep need to keep a family secret. Successful more than she thought possible, Monica later faces a more challenging prospect than being ignored during a business deal: seeking redemption from Jerry who is succumbing to the ravages of Alzheimer’s Disease. Set in eastern Vermont, this story portrays how emotions govern lives, causing individuals to consider adultery, deceit, revenge, and the taking of a life. It all culminates in a nursing home during a special Christmas, where peace is finally found.

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE The beloved, award-winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, a Michael Chabon masterwork, is the American epic of two boy geniuses named Joe Kavalier and Sammy Clay.

A “towering, swash-buckling thrill of a book” (Newsweek), hailed as Chabon’s “magnum opus” (The New York Review of Books), The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay is a triumph of originality, imagination, and storytelling, an exuberant, irresistible novel that begins in New York City in 1939. A young escape artist and budding magician named Joe Kavalier arrives on the doorstep of his cousin, Sammy Clay. While the long shadow of Hitler falls across Europe, America is happily in thrall to the Golden Age of comic books, and in a distant corner of Brooklyn, Sammy is looking for a way to cash in on the craze. He finds the ideal partner in the aloof, artistically gifted Joe, and together they embark on an adventure that takes them deep into the heart of Manhattan, and the heart of old-fashioned American ambition. From the shared fears, dreams, and desires of two teenage boys, they spin comic book tales of the heroic, fascist-fighting Escapist and the beautiful, mysterious Luna Moth, otherworldly mistress of the night. Climbing from the streets of Brooklyn to the top of the Empire State Building, Joe and Sammy carve out lives, and careers, as vivid as cyan and magenta ink. Spanning continents and eras, this superb book by one of America’s finest writers remains one of the defining novels of our modern American age.
