A young man reexamines his childhood memories of strange visions and erratic behavior to answer disturbing questions that continue to haunt him and his new family in this psychological thriller named a Washington Post best book of 2007. Thirty-year-old George Davies can’t bring himself to hold his newborn son. After months of accepting his lame excuses and strange behavior, his wife has had enough. She demands that he see a therapist, and George, desperate to save his unraveling marriage and redeem himself as a father and husband, reluctantly agrees. As he delves into his childhood memories, he begins to recall things he hasn’t thought of in twenty years. Events, people, and strange situations come rushing back. The odd, rambling letters his father sent home before he died. The jovial mother who started dating too soon after his father’s death. A boy who appeared one night when George was lonely, then told him secrets he didn’t want to know. How no one believed this new friend was real and that he was responsible for the bad things that were happening. Terrified by all that he has forgotten, George struggles to remember what really happened in the months following his father’s death. Were his ominous visions and erratic behavior the product of a grief-stricken child’s overactive imagination? Or were his father’s colleagues, who blamed a darker, more malevolent force, right to look to the supernatural as a means to end George’s suffering? Twenty years later, George still does not know. But when a mysterious murder is revealed, remembering the past becomes the only way George can protect himself--and his young family. A psychological thriller in the tradition of Donna Tartt’s The Secret History--with shades of The Exorcist--A Good and Happy Child leaves you questioning the things you remember and frightened of the things you’ve forgotten. “Beautifully written and perfectly structured. . . . This novel is much more than The Omen for the latte generation, and Evans cleverly subverts expectations at every turn.” –Washington Post “[A] satisfying, suspenseful first novel. . . . Young George’s intriguing story unbalances the reader right up to the book’s deliciously chilling end.” —People “A scary, grown-up ghost story that combines Southern gothic with more than a twist of The Exorcist. . . . Combine[s] mind-bending storytelling with excellent prose.” —Portland Tribune “Think Rosemary’s Baby—plus . . . told in the kind of prose that mesmerizes, sweeping the reader along so fast that there’s no time to ask questions.” —Hartford Courant “[A] dazzling debut . . . part psychological thriller, part horror story.” —Chicago Tribune “Relat[es] his otherworldly suspense story with the cool, calm eye of a skeptic.” —Entertainment Weekly (A—)

Valerio Evangelisti, distaccandosi dai temi narrativi che lo hanno reso noto come scrittore, racconta in questo romanzo di ampio respiro le vicende di alcune famiglie di braccianti e contadini romagnoli, dall¿epoca post-risorgimentale alle soglie del 1900. Sono storie minute, in cui si intrecciano momenti ora drammatici ora briosi. Assieme disegnano un quadro ben più grande, esteso a tutta l'Emilia Romagna e all'Italia. La trasformazione agricola di una regione, la bonifica di territori malsani, l'affermarsi del movimento cooperativo e di quello socialista, con le sue varie anime spesso conflittuali, la lenta e sanguinosa conquista della democrazia. Ciò è visto con gli occhi di protagonisti solo in parte consapevoli dello scenario grandioso in cui si muovono. Attilio, l'ex garibaldino che sperimenta tutte le forme e le miserie del precariato; Rosa, vittima predestinata ma non docile dello sfruttamento e dell'arroganza di chi comanda; Canzio, il ribelle per indole, refrattario all'ideologia e attratto dall'azione. Assieme a costoro una folla colorita di personaggi turbolenti e litigiosi, spesso realmente esistiti; trascinati in vicende politiche e umane che li porteranno dalle pianure e dai colli di Romagna alle paludi dell¿Agro romano, fino ai campi di battaglia in Grecia. Umili costruttori di un Sole dell'Avvenire che non sorgerà mai, quanto meno nelle forme che speravano. Nel comporre forse il più ambizioso dei suoi romanzi, inizio di una trilogia estesa per un settantennio, Evangelisti si è tenuto lontano dalle opere, letterarie e cinematografiche, che hanno trattato lo stesso tema. Nessuna retorica, nessun miserabilismo, nessuna esaltazione della civiltà rurale. Solo la cronaca, secca e a volte spiazzante, di piccola gente partecipe di un¿impresa immensa. Un'epopea, sì, ma narrata rifiutando gli stereotipi dell'epica a sfondo sociale.

Nel 1697 Luigi XIV è impegnato nell'ennesima guerra, detta dei Nove Anni. Per rimpinguare le casse ormai vuote del regno, decide di inviare una flotta imponente contro Cartagena, nell'attuale Colombia: una delle città più ricche dell'impero spagnolo d'oltremare, ritenuta imprendibile. L'ammiraglio De Pointis, per navigare i Caraibi, ha però bisogno dell'ausilio della Filibusta. Solo che la Tortuga è stata abbandonata, e i Fratelli della Costa superstiti si sono sparsi sulle montagne dell'isola di Hispaniola. Chi riesce a radunarli è il governatore Ducasse, ex negriero, gran farabutto ma d'animo per certi versi nobile, avventuriero impavido. Martin d'Orlhac è stato ladro, poi soldato, e infine è divenuto il braccio destro di De Pointis. Fatto imbarcare con i pirati, assiste con progressiva simpatia alla vita libera e feroce di costoro. Intreccia anche una bizzarra storia d'amore, che gli costerà parecchio, con una giovane dama spagnola tanto bella quanto inaccessibile, tanto apparentemente ingenua quanto sottile e intelligente. La presa di Cartagena vedrà crescere la tensione tra il nobile De Pointis e il plebeo Ducasse, tra Fratelli della Costa ed esercito regolare; fino all'aperta ribellione dei filibustieri contro l'arroganza di un'aristocrazia che persino in Francia comincia a essere messa in discussione. Sarà l'ultimo atto della confraternita di fuorilegge che sull'isola della Tortuga aveva preso forma e terrorizzato i Caraibi per quasi cinquant'anni. Pochi mesi dopo la conquista di Cartagena le grandi potenze firmeranno un trattato di pace e si impegneranno, di comune accordo, a combattere la pirateria. I Fratelli della Costa tuttavia non spariranno, ma saranno chiamati a un differente destino. Anticipato, nei capitoli finali, da un colpo di scena che rallegrerà i lettori di Tortuga e di Veracruz.

Unbeknownst to mortals, a power struggle is unfolding in a world of shadows and danger. After centuries of stability, the balance among the Faery Courts has altered, and Irial, ruler of the Dark Court, is battling to hold his rebellious and newly vulnerable fey together. If he fails, bloodshed and brutality will follow. Seventeen-year-old Leslie knows nothing of faeries or their intrigues. When she is attracted to an eerily beautiful tattoo of eyes and wings, all she knows is that she has to have it, convinced it is a tangible symbol of changes she desperately craves for her own life. The tattoo does bring changes—not the kind Leslie has dreamed of, but sinister, compelling changes that are more than symbolic. Those changes will bind Leslie and Irial together, drawing Leslie deeper and deeper into the faery world, unable to resist its allures, and helpless to withstand its perils. . . .

An essential introduction to a rapidly growing field of study, The Fan Fiction Studies Reader gathers in one place the key foundational texts of the fan studies corpus, with a focus on fan fiction. Collected here are important texts by scholars whose groundbreaking work established the field and outlined some of its enduring questions. Editors Karen Hellekson and Kristina Busse provide cogent introductions that place each piece in its historical and intellectual context, mapping the historical development of fan studies and suggesting its future trajectories. Organized into four thematic sections, the essays address fan-created works as literary artifacts; the relationship between fandom, identity, and feminism; fandom and affect; and the role of creativity and performance in fan activities. Considered as literary artifacts, fan works pose important questions about the nature of authorship, the meaning of “originality,” and modes of transmission. Sociologically, fan fiction is and long has been a mostly female enterprise, from the fanzines of the 1960s to online forums today, and this fact has shaped its themes and its standing among fans. The questions of how and why people become fans, and what the difference is between liking something and being a fan of it, have also drawn considerable scholarly attention, as has the question of how fans perform their fannish identities for diverse audiences. Thanks to the overlap between fan studies and other disciplines related to popular and cultural studies—including social, digital, and transmedia studies—an increasing number of scholars are turning to fan studies to engage their students. Fan fiction is the most extensively explored aspect of fan works and fan engagement, and so studies of it can often serve as a basis for addressing other aspects of fandom. These classic essays introduce the field’s key questions and some of its major figures. Those new to the field or in search of context for their own research will find this reader an invaluable resource.

Years before they served together on board the U.S.S. EnterpriseTM, Commander William Riker and ship's counselor Deanna Troi had a tempestuous love affair on her home planet of Betazed. Now, their passions have cooled and they serve together as friends. Yet the memories of that time linger and Riker and Troi remain Imzadi- a powerful Betazoid term that describes the enduring bond they still share. During delicate negotiations with an aggressive race called the Sindareen Deanna Troi mysteriously falls ill and dies. But her death is only the beginning of the adventure for Commander Riker, an adventure that will take him across time, pit him against one of his closest friends, and force him to choose between Starfleet's strictest rule and the one he calls Imzadi.
