Days between stations : a novel by Steve Erickson( Book )

17 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a world of cataclysm and unraveled time, a young woman's face, a misbegotten childhood in a Parisian brothel, and the fragment of a lost movie masterpiece are the only clues in a man's search for his past. Steve Erickson's Days Between Stations is the stunning, now classic dream-spec of our precarious age -- by turns beautiful and obsessed, haunted and hallucinated, in which lives erotically collide, the past ambushes the future, and forbidden secrets intercut with each other like the frames of a film.--P. [4] of cover
Our ecstatic days by Steve Erickson( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and Japanese and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erickson continues the themes of millennial obsessions that preoccupied him in The Sea Came in at Midnight (1999), this time in a lush, profoundly disorienting story saturated in metaphors of birth and apocalyptic decadence. As it opens, Kristin, who appeared in Sea, is a former rough chick made tender by motherhood. She lives in a hotel with her young son Kirk (short for Kierkegaard), on the edge of a lake (called Lake Zero, as in, you know, Ground Zero) that suddenly appeared and overtook much of downtown Los Angeles at the turn of the millennium

Amnesiascope : a novel by Steve Erickson( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A washed-up novelist navigates the dreamscape of a cataclysm-ravaged Los Angeles In the apocalyptic Los Angeles of Amnesiascope, time zones multiply freely, spectral figures roam the streets, and rings of fire separate the city from the rest of the country. The narrator, a former novelist, lives in a hotel and writes film criticism for a newspaper whose offices are located in a bombed-out theater. Viv, his girlfriend, is a sexually voracious artist, and together the two are collaborating on an avant-garde pornographic film. But in this world, what's real and what's merely the conjuring of the protagonist's imagination--obsessed with dreams, movies, sex, and remembrance--is far from clear. At once outrageous and hypnotically lyrical, Amnesiascope enflames the reader's memory
The pleasure of influence : conversations with American male fiction writers by Rob Trucks( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this collection of interviews, eleven of the most important American male fiction writers of our time - Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Olen Butler, National Book Award winner Charles Johnson, National Book Award nominees Thom Jones, Barry Hannah, and Stephen Dixon, as well as Russell Banks, Rick Moody, Chris Offutt, Stewart O'Nan, Steve Erickson, and Gordon Lish - candidly discuss the origin, process, and achievement of their own fiction. All of the writers in this collection are working with personal truths, particular to their experience, yet they operate within a defined referential tradition. The material is unmistakably their own, the way they tell the story is their own, but they are always mindful of the world that preceded them."--Jacket

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the same August day in 1969 that a crazed hippie "family" led by Charles Manson commits five savage murders in the canyons above Los Angeles, a young ex-communicated seminarian arrives with images of Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift--"the two most beautiful people in the history of the movies"--Tattooed on his head. At once childlike and violent, Vikar is not a cineaste but "cineautistic," sleeping at night in the Roosevelt Hotel where he's haunted by the ghost of D.W. Griffith. Vikar has stepped into the vortex of a culture in upheaval: strange drugs that frighten him, a strange sexuality that consumes him, a strange music he doesn't understand. Over the course of the seventies and into the eighties, he pursues his obsession with film from one screening to the next and through a series of cinema-besotted conversations and encounters with starlets, burglars, guerrillas, escorts, teenage punks, and veteran film editors, only to discover a secret whose clues lie in every film ever made

To the hundreds, then thousands, then tens of thousands drawn to the "American Stonehenge"--including Parker and Zema, siblings on their way from Los Angeles to visit their mother in Michigan--the Towers seem to sing, even as everybody hears a different song. A rumor overtakes the throng that someone can be seen in the high windows of the southern structure.On the ninety-third floor, Jesse Presley--the stillborn twin of the most famous singer who ever lived--suddenly awakes, driven mad over the hours and days to come by a voice in his head that sounds like his but isn't, and by the memory of a country where he survived in his brother's place. Meanwhile, Parker and Zema cross a possessed landscape by a mysterious detour no one knows, charted on a map that no one has seen.Haunting, audacious, and undaunted, Shadowbahn is a winding and reckless ride through intersections of danger, destiny, and the conjoined halves of a ruptured nation

Black clock 18( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an age that defies the definitive, Black Clock 18 offers its version of the cinematic "director's cut." Most authors have buried in their cyber-catacombs the book that got away, or the less compromised version of the published magnum opus stained with the blood of those darlings every writer learns must be killed; this edition of Black Clock is filled with those cherished artistic detours that finally were abandoned for the sake of the whole. From an alternate version of Brian Evenson's The Open Curtain to an excised chapter of Aimee Bender's The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake to a deleted excerpt from Greil Marcus' The Shape of Things to Come to a newly reconsidered version of a Jonathan Lethem story that originally appeared in another journal to Rick Moody's "Thirteen Stories" that turned into another book entirely to Joanna Scott's "Untelling" of her upcoming novel, Black Clock 18 either represents the resurrection or provides the final resting place of editorial decisions regretted, rued and reconciled
