In Benjamin Percy's new thriller, a postapocalyptic reimagining of the Lewis and Clark saga, a super flu and nuclear fallout have made a husk of the world we know. A few humans carry on, living in outposts such as the Sanctuary--the remains of Saint Louis--a shielded community that owes its survival to its militant defense and fear-mongering leaders. Then a rider comes from the wasteland beyond its walls. She reports on the outside world: west of the Cascades rain falls, crops grow, civilization thrives. But there is danger too: the rising power of an army that pillages and enslaves every community they happen upon. Against the wishes of the Sanctuary, a small group sets out in secrecy. Led by Lewis Meriwether and Mina Clark, they hope to expand their infant nation, and to reunite the States. But the Sanctuary will not allow them to escape without a fight

Thrill me : essays on fiction by Benjamin Percy( Book )
3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 281 libraries worldwide
Bold new essays on how to craft a thrilling read-in any genre-from the bestselling author of The Dead Lands Anyone familiar with the meteoric rise of Benjamin Percy's career will surely have noticed a certain shift: After writing two short-story collections and a literary novel, he delivered the werewolf thriller Red Moon and the postapocalyptic epic The Dead Lands. Now, in his first book of nonfiction, Percy challenges the notion that literary and genre fiction are somehow mutually exclusive. The title essay is an ode to the kinds of books that make many readers fall in love with fiction: science fiction, fantasy, mysteries, horror, from J.R.R. Tolkien to Anne Rice, Ursula K. Le Guin to Stephen King. Percy's own academic experience banished many of these writers in the name of what is "literary" and what is "genre." Then he discovered Michael Chabon, Aimee Bender, Cormac McCarthy, Margaret Atwood, and others who employ techniques of genre fiction while remaining literary writers. In fifteen essays on the craft of fiction, Percy looks to disparate sources such as Jaws, Blood Meridian, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to discover how contemporary writers engage issues of plot, suspense, momentum, and the speculative, as well as character, setting, and dialogue. An urgent and entertaining missive on craft, Thrill Me brims with Percy's distinctive blend of anecdotes, advice, and close reading, all in the service of one dictum: Thrill the reader

You and me and the devil makes three : Esquire's fiction for men : stories by Aaron Gwyn, Jess Walter and Luis Alberto Urrea ( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Three new stories for men, by three of the most ambitious and talented names in fiction A search for an eight-ball of cocaine, turns into a pistol-whipping and executions in Aaron Gwyn & rsquo;s stunning and disquieting & ldquo;You and Me and the Devil Makes Three. & rdquo; Gwyn, who was born in Tulsa and raised on a cattle ranch, is the author of the novel The World Beneath and the story collection Dog on a Cross, about which the Boston Globe wrote, & ldquo;In Gwyn & rsquo;s expert hands, nothing, including good or evil, is ever so simple ... part Flannery O & rsquo;Connor, part Shirley Jackson, and wholly original & mdash;so brilliantly compelling. & rdquo; This new story is no less shocking and revelatory. In & ldquo;Young Man Blues, & rdquo; Luis Alberto Urrea introduces us to Joey, the son of a motorcycle gangster tasked with caring for his mother while his dad serves time in Pelican Bay. Packed with rottweilers and German Lugers, roaring car engines and doughnut girls, this story is as riveting and funny as it is affecting. Urrea, a 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist for nonfiction and a member of the Latino Literature Hall of Fame, is the author of The Hummingbird & rsquo;s Daughter, which was twenty years in the making and named a book of the year by numerous publications. His most recent novel, Queen of America, is a New York Times & ldquo;editor & rsquo;s choice & rdquo; selection for 2011. Jess Walter & rsquo;s & ldquo;Big Man & rdquo; depicts middle-aged men trying to relive their glory days in their local recreational basketball league. Beer bellies, ex-wives, and middle age come together in a hilarious and absurd riff on mortality that is vintage Walter. Walter & rsquo;s novels include The Zero, a finalist for the National Book Award, and The Financial Lives of the Poets, which Time called & ldquo;the funniest way-we-live-now book of the year. & rdquo; He most recently published Beautiful Ruins, which Richard Russo describes as & ldquo;an absolute masterpiece. & rdquo; Esquire's Fiction for Men is a new ebook series whose mission is to publish the type of original short stories men love to read & mdash;plot-driven, immediate, essential, and impossible to put down
