Everyone is good. Sometimes they just do evil things. Despite the loss of Calloway’s parents, the torment he deals with at Fresno High School for being poor, and the responsibility of the entire world on his shoulders, he still believes life is worth living—even if it isn’t. The only things he has left are the gifts his father left behind, a glowing orb and a picking knife. Calloway doesn’t understand the use of these gifts. The globe only responds to him, shining in the darkness at his command. And his knife can open any lock. But what are they for? After Calloway steals the Kirin book from the Grandiose Historian Library, he is hunted by the Hara-Kirs, an ancient race that seeks to harbor the essence of all humans. Constantly looking over his shoulder, Calloway doesn’t understand why he’s being followed. And, more importantly, why he hasn’t been killed. The creatures had the chance many times, but his life has never been claimed. With the help of his two friends, they decode the ancient text and investigate the portal that leads to the other side. The Anti-Life. During their research, Calloway realizes his father may not be dead after all. But if he isn’t, where is he? Why would his father abandon him? Did he ever love Calloway? His friends suspect his father was actually a Hara-Kir, which was how Calloway received the gifts, but Calloway refuses to believe it. His father was a good man. He’ll prove it. Weston, the girl that Calloway immediately feels connected to, is the leader of the White Wing, a group of warriors that fight against the Hara-Kirs. But she doesn’t trust Calloway. All the information works against him. If his father was a Hara-Kir, what is he?

Both literary author and celebrity, Bret Easton Ellis represents a type of contemporary writer who draws from both high and the low culture, using popular culture references, styles and subject matters in a literary fiction that goes beyond mere entertainment. His fiction, arousing the interest of the academia, mass media and general public, has fuelled heated controversy over his work. This controversy has often prevented serious analysis of his fiction, and this book is the first monograph to fill in this gap by offering a comprehensive textual and contextual analysis of his most important works up to the latest novel Imperial Bedrooms. Offering a study of the reception of each novel, the influence of popular, mass and consumer culture in them, and the analysis of their literary style, it takes into account the controversies surrounding the novels and the changes produced in the shifty terrain of the literary marketplace. It offers anyone studying contemporary American fiction a thorough and unique analysis of Elliss work and his own place in the literary and cultural panorama.

Tom Easton has served as the monthly book review columnist for Analog Science Fiction for almost three decades, having contributed during that span many hundreds of columns and over a million words of penetrating criticism on the best literature that science fiction has to offer. His reviews have been celebrated for their wit, humor, readability, knowledge, and incisiveness. His love of literature, particularly fantastic literature, is everywhere evident in his essays. Easton has ever been willing to cover small presses, obscure authors, and unusual publications, being the only major critic in the field to do so on a regular basis. He seems to delight in finding the rare gem among the backwaters of the publishing field. "A reviewer's job," he says, "is not to judge books for the ages, but to tell readers enough about a book to give them some idea of whether they would enjoy it." And this he does admirably, whether he's discussing the works of the great writers in the field, or touching upon the least amongst them. This companion volume to "Periodic Stars" (Borgo/Wildside) collects another 250 of Easton's best reviews from the last fifteen years of "The Reference Library." No one does it better, and no other guide provides such lengthy or discerning commentary on the best SF works of recent times. Complete with Introduction and detailed Index.

Über die Grenzen der Liebe in einer gnadenlosen Welt: In Barcelona kreuzen sich die Wege der exzentrischen Schriftstellerin Alba Cambó und der unerschütterlichen Araceli, die alleine bei ihrer Mutter aufwächst. Wie ein Puzzle setzt Araceli die Biographie der geheimnisvollen, flüchtigen Alba zusammen, ein Strudel aus schillernden Geschichten über Menschen aus ihrer Vergangenheit und einen Hund, den eine Prostituierte auf den Namen Bret Easton Ellis getauft hat. Lina Wolff erzählt von Machtspielen zwischen Müttern und Töchtern, Schriftstellern und Lesern und – immer wieder und vor allem – Männern und Frauen, von Sehnsucht und Begehren, Liebe, Hass, Erotik, geplatzten Träumen und zerstörerischem Alltagstrott. Ein mal beißend komischer, mal poetischer Roman voller schonungsloser Zärtlichkeit, in dem hinter jedem Satz eine Überraschung lauert.
