"Echo Canyon, a disappearing pocket of wilderness outside Bend, Oregon, is the site of conflicting memories for Justin Caves and his father, Paul. It's slated for redevelopment as a golfing resort. When Paul suggests one last hunting trip, Justin accepts, hoping to set things right with his father, and he agrees to bring his son along, too. As the weekend unfolds, Justin is pushed to the limit by the reckless taunting of his father, the physical demands of the terrain, and the menacing evidence of a bear's hovering presence. All the while, he remembers the promise he made to his skeptical wife: to keep their son safe. For Justin, these few days will map the changing territory of his heart as he discovers how far he will go to protect those he loves"--Jkt. cover

RED MOON author Benjamin Percy's widely praised debut story collection, originally published by a university press, is now available for the first time as an ebook. This debut collection of stories, The Language of Here nature exists as a source of wonder and a force to be conquered. Here myths haunt the moss-laden woods and Benjamin Percy shines his light on them, revealing bearded ladies and Bigfoot and marijuana colonies and elk hunting ranches and haunted Indian burial sites, the underside of contemporary western America. With a salty mystical voice that partners the landscape and a vision as wild as his characters, Percy explores a world of surprising violence and gentleness, hilarity and heartbreak, loveliness and ugliness, and in doing so emerges as a beautifully raw voice of the West

You and me and the devil makes three Esquire's fiction for men : stories by Aaron Gwyn, Jess Walter and Luis Alberto Urrea by Aaron Gwyn( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 83 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’s stunning and disquieting “You and Me and the Devil Makes Three.” 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, “In Gwyn’s expert hands, nothing, including good or evil, is ever so simple . . . part Flannery O’Connor, part Shirley Jackson, and wholly original—so brilliantly compelling.” This new story is no less shocking and revelatory. In “Young Man Blues,” 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’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 “editor’s choice” selection for 2011. Jess Walter’s “Big Man” 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’s novels include The Zero, a finalist for the National Book Award, and The Financial Lives of the Poets, which Time called “the funniest way-we-live-now book of the year.” He most recently published Beautiful Ruins, which Richard Russo describes as “an absolute masterpiece.” 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—plot-driven, immediate, essential, and impossible to put down

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in German and held by 13 libraries worldwide
Eine neue starke Stimme aus Amerika. Selbst in der Wildnis von Oregon haben es echte Männer heutzutage schwer. Freizeitparks verschönern die Gegend, das Jäger-Handwerk ist aus der Mode. Paul will sich damit nicht abfinden. Männer müssen Kerle sein, und so will er, als sein Enkel Graham alt genug ist, mit ihm und dessen Vater losziehen und ihm das Jagen beibringen. Doch die Natur überlässt den modernen Zeiten ihr Terrain nicht kampflos. Und die grausamste Wildnis lauert im Menschen selbst. Justins Frau Karen war von Anfang an gegen diesen Ausflug. Aber am Ende hat sie nachgegeben - vielleicht bringen ihr die Tage alleine auch Klarheit über die Zukunft ihrer angeschlagenen Ehe. Sie ahnt nicht, dass nicht ihr Mann und ihr Sohn, sondern sie selbst in höchster Gefahr schwebt. Denn Brian, der nette Schlüsseldienstbetreiber, ist nur körperlich gesund aus dem Irakkrieg wiedergekehrt. Nachts streift er in Tierfellen durch die Wälder. An Karen hatte er schon immer einen Narren gefressen. Und jetzt, während Karens Mann mit Vater und Sohn am Lagerfeuer sitzt und Gruselgeschichten erzählt, während die Wildnis für sie von Tag zu Tag unwirtlicher wird, während sich unheimliche Vorkommnisse und Unfälle häufen und sie menschliche Skelette und Raubtierspuren fi nden - jetzt sieht Brian seine Chance gekommen. Die Wildnis soll gerodet werden. Aber in Benjamin Percys hochspannendem Debütroman schlägt sie grausam zurück. Benjamin Percy wuchs auf im tiefsten Oregon. Vor seinem Romandebüt 'Wölfe der Nacht' schrieb er zwei hochgelobte Erzählbände. Er lehrt Creative Writing an der Iowa State University
