Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods by Rick Riordan ( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A publisher in New York asked me to write down what I know about the Greek gods, and I was like, Can we do this anonymously? Because I don't need the Olympians mad at me again. But if it helps you to know your Greek gods, and survive an encounter with them if they ever show up in your face, then I guess writing all this down will be my good deed for the week. So begins Percy Jackson's Greek Gods, in which the son of Poseidon adds his own magic--and sarcastic asides--to the classics. He explains how the world was created, then gives readers his personal take on a who's who of ancients, from Apollo to Zeus. Percy does not hold back. "If you like horror shows, blood baths, lying, stealing, backstabbing, and cannibalism, then read on, because it definitely was a Golden Age for all that."

Another E.E. Cummings by E. E Cummings ( Book )
3 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here is an eye-opening selection of Cummings's most avant-garde poetry and prose. Cummings was a pioneer in sound and concrete poetry. He worked with the traditional form of the sonnet until he made it all his own through linguistic and typographic inventions that have never been properly recognized. His prose is no less experimental; he wrote memoirs, essays, and fiction that are constantly provocative and often radically experimental
