Маленький американский городок Дерри. Семеро друзей создают "Клуб неудачников". У каждого из них есть своя проблема, обрекающая на одиночество и насмешки, - заикание, астма, лишний вес, близорукость... А еще - каждый из них однажды столкнулся со Злом. И это Зло не человек из плоти и крови. Чаще всего оно является в обличие клоуна, называющего себя Пеннивайз. Взрослые не способны видеть его, лишь подростки могут выследить чудовище и дать ему бой.

Cove
Cove Sented by Shon

“Cynan Jones is utterly brilliant. The writing in Cove is so delicate and cruel and insightful. I don’t understand why no statues have been erected in his honour yet.” ―Eimear McBride, The Times Literary Supplement Out at sea, in a sudden storm, a man is struck by lightning. When he wakes, injured and adrift on a kayak, his memory of who he is and how he came to be here is all but shattered. He will need to rely on his instincts, resilience, and imagination to get safely back to the woman he dimly senses is waiting for his return. This is an extraordinary, visceral portrait of a man locked in a struggle with the forces of nature.

Empire of Light
Empire of Light Sented by Shon

"A singular new voice . . . [Michael Bible] is so open, so easy, so fluid, you'll smile with joy turning every page." -Barry Hannah After an adolescent prank leads to a stranger's death, Alvis Maloney rambles westward. He lands in a small North Carolina town and falls in love-in love with his neighbor Molly, with a lonesome quarterback called Miles, with a whole community of enduring misfits and losers. But at the same time, another life takes shape in Maloney's dreamlike visions: a horse named Forever, a princess with hypochondria, and an electric city that's always just out of reach. As these two promises of home fight for their hold on Maloney, the story careens toward disaster, and in the end Maloney must choose between love and redemption. From the author Electric Literature called "one of the most interesting and exciting new novelists in years," Michael Bible's Empire of Light blooms with mystical imagination and a hopeful heart.

Murder on the Einstein Express and Other Stories

This collection of stories touches upon many genres: Normed Trek is a clever and witty Alice-in-Wonderland-type narrative set in the realm of mathematical analysis, The Cantor Trilogy is a dystopia about the consequences of relying upon computer-based mathematical proofs, In Search of Future Time bears the flavor of Tales from Arabian Nights set in the future, and - last but not least - Murder on the Einstein Express is a short, non-technical primer on probabilities and modern classical physics, disguised as a detective story. Written primarily for an audience with some background or a strong interest in mathematics, physics and computer science (in particular artificial intelligence), these stories explore the boundaries between science and fiction in a refreshingly unconventional fashion. In the Afterthoughts the author provides some further insights and annotations.

The Freeze-Frame Revolution

"This-THIS-is the cutting edge of science fiction." -Richard K. Morgan, author of Altered Carbon She believed in the mission with all her heart. But that was sixty million years ago. How do you stage a mutiny when you're only awake one day in a million? How do you conspire when your tiny handful of potential allies changes with each shift? How do you engage an enemy that never sleeps, that sees through your eyes and hears through your ears and relentlessly, honestly, only wants what's best for you? Sunday Ahzmundin is about to find out.

Unguarded Volume 1 (One Fairy Tale Wedding)

Once upon a time, there was a young woman who'd been treated like a princess all her life. Then her parents died and left her in the care of a beast. Ever since she lost her parents when she was eighteen, Charlie has had to put up with Simon Shae, whom her parents made the trustee of her inheritance. He's grumpy and unsmiling and always trying to boss her around. At first, she resented him, but she's twenty-five now, and she kind of likes his beast-like qualities. In fact, she's crazy about him. All she has to do is make him stop looking at her as a little girl and see her as the woman she is. A romantic weekend at a grand wedding in the mountains is the perfect opportunity to open his eyes. He reluctantly agrees to be her date, but if she wants to win his heart, she has to be brave enough to make her move. Unguarded is the first novella in the One Fairy Tale Wedding series, in which three friends make a pact to get what they really want during one wedding weekend.

When a young woman with a sordid past witnesses a murder, she finds herself fascinated by the killer and decides to track him down herself.

The Bomb Maker
The Bomb Maker Sented by Musa

A bomb is more than a weapon. A bomb is an expression of the bomber's predictions of human behavior-a performance designed to fool you into making one fatally wrong move. In The Bomb Maker, Thomas Perry introduces us to the dark corners of a mind intent on transforming a simple machine into an act of murder-and to those committed to preventing that outcome at any cost.

Ganesha Goes to Lunch: Classics From Mystic India

King Kubera was the greediest man in the world. Hated and feared by many, he schemed to win the love of the beautiful goddess Parvati . . . but learned an important lesson when he invited her elephant-headed son Ganesha over for lunch one day . . . So goes one of the many delightful tales in this decidedly grown-up book of traditional Indian stories, retold for the modern reader. Author Kamla Kapur is well known in her native India as a poet and playwright, and her connection to these age-old stories is the reverent yet individualistic one we might expect from someone whose introduction tells of her hometown, where naked, dreadlocked holy men speed about on motorbikes. To collect these stories, Kapur relied on ancient sacred texts, modern scholarship, and chance encounters with interesting people who just happened to know a really good one about this time that Vishnu sank into the ocean, was incarnated as a pig, and had a really wonderful time. Like myths around the world, these are teaching stories that offer both a window into a fascinating culture that has endured for thousands of years, and a code for living that can be applied to the modern world.

Peter Jackson: A Film-Maker's Journey

Once, Peter Jackson was a name unknown to all but a small band of loyal fans and fellow filmmakers. Now, he is the newest member of Hollywood's elite fellowship, with his name on the most successful movie trilogy of all time. Written with Jackson's full participation, this extensive biography, illustrated with never-before-seen photos from Jackson's personal collection, tells the inside story of how a New Zealander became Hollywood's hottest property—from the early cult classics, through Academy Award-winning success with Kate Winslet's Heavenly Creatures, the abandoned King Kong remake, and the filming of The Lord of the Rings—a project which was abandoned two years into pre-production, rejected by most of the other studios, and then picked up by New Line Cinema in the biggest gamble in film history. Drawing upon interviews with 50 of Peter Jackson's colleagues and contemporaries, author Brian Sibley paints a portrait of a true auteur, a man gifted with single-minded determination and an artist's vision. Jackson himself is both revealing and insightful about his entire filmmaking life, from his first childhood steps filming in Super 8 to the grand realisation of his life's dream: King Kong. Together, these joint narratives provide a truly unique and compelling insight into one of the finest cinematic minds at work today.
