Most widely held works by R. A Lafferty
The fall of Rome by R. A Lafferty( Book )

4 editions published between 1971 and 2017 in English and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rome's demise was not a simple case of fierce barbarians sacking and subduing a decadent, crumbling city. The author has skillfully balanced the turmoil and illusions of a mighty, dying Empire against the vitality of the aggressive Huns, Vandals, and above all, the Goths. The result is a perceptive and stimulating historical account, the story of the men and women who made things happen, who were as awesome, poignant, and in some cases, as savage as the era itself.--Adapted from dust jacket
Okla Hannali by R. A Lafferty( Book )

This book is a tale of Hannali Innominee, a 'Mingo' or natural lord of the 19th-century Choctaw Indian and a capacious, indomitable giant of the ilk of Paul Bunyan....Lafferty tells it straight: how the Choctaw nation, once removed, reconstituted itself and thrived in Indian territory...., how there came a schism between the rich, part-white, slave-owning, moneylending Choctaws and the 'feudal, compassionate, chauvinistic' full-blooded freeholders like Hannali; and how, during the Civil War, the Indians were manipulated divide-and-conquer fashion in helping destroy each other

La 4e de couverture indique : " Au commencement il y eut une interruption (...). Mais une interruption peut-elle survenir au commencement?" Ainsi s'ouvre la première autobiographie jamais écrite par une machine ... Créée par l'Institut pour la Science Impure, veillée par un géant au petit pied, une éternelle petite fille, un inventeur sans génie aux créations formidables, un grand roi sans couronne et un fantôme qui n'existe pas, la machine ktistèque n'est rien moins que le compendium mécanique de l'humanité. Machine pensante qui englobe toutes les consciences, elle doit apporter la réponse à l'humanité. Que les hommes sachent quelle est la question, c'est une autre histoire ..."

The reefs of Earth by R. A Lafferty( Book )

17 editions published between 1968 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dulanty family can pass for human, but they're actually alien Pucas, stranded on the remote backwater planet Earth in the tiny (and corrupt) Appalachian town of Lost Haven. The six Dulanty children (seven, if you count the disembodied Bad John) get tired of being spurned, scorned, and scapegoated by the townsfolk, and hit upon the obvious solution: they'll murder every human in the world, using hatchets, rifles, and the otherworldly killing verses known as Bagarthach, and transform the planet into a paradise for the Dulantys alone. Fortunately for the human race, the Dulanty children aren't very adept at murder, but their attempts at wholesale homicide make for a read that's alternately harrowing, hilarious, and heartwarming. Come visit the Reefs of Earth, and experience the incomparable imagination of visionary author R.A. Lafferty, a writer Jo Walton called "very weird, very clever, and impossible to forget."
