    New York Times bestselling author Barbara Kingsolver delivers a collection of 12 original tales in Homeland and Other Stories that are every bit as emotionally resonant, humorous, and heartfelt as her much-beloved novels. 
    In settings ranging from eastern Kentucky to northern California and the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, Barbara Kingsolver uses her distinctive voice and vast knowledge of human nature to address some of her favorite themes: the importance of personal and cultural heritage; how the past effects the present and the enduring power of love. Kingsolver’s characters, many single mothers, struggle to make sense of their lives and find meaning in a difficult world. 
    Praised for her memorable characters and poetic prose, Kingsolver again proves why she is a literary force to be reckoned with. 
    This edition includes a P.S. section with additional insights from the author, background material, suggestions for further reading, and more.

  • The E Hoffmann Price Spicy Adventure MEGAPACK ™ - 14 Tales from the "Spicy" Pulp Magazines! - cover

    The E Hoffmann Price Spicy...

    E. Hoffmann Price

    E. Hoffmann Price was one of the "Weird Tales Circle" that included H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and Clark Ashton Smith. In fact, he was the only person to meet both Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft in person.
    The 14 stories collected here span multiple genres and multiple decades: detective, western, adventure, and fantasy. The one thing they have in common (aside from some mildly titillating content required by the "Spicy" pulp magazines) is the sure voice of a born storyteller. Once you start reading an E. Hoffmann Price story, you won’t put it down. The introduction by Darrell Schweitzer, which leads off the collection, provides a lot more information on Ed’s work for the "Spicy" magazines...though quite tame by modern standards, they were considered risque in their day.
    Included in this volume are:
    INTRODUCTION, by Darrell Schweitzer
    SATAN'S DAUGHTER
    PIT OF MADNESS
    THE WALKING DEAD
    EVERY MAN A KING
    REVOLT OF THE DAMNED
    CRYSTAL CLUES
    NIGHT IN MANILA
    MURDER SALVAGE
    TRIANGLE WITH VARIATIONS
    SCOURGE OF THE SILVER DRAGON
    DRINK OR DRAW
    SHE HERDED HIM AROUND
    YOU CAN'T FIGHT A WOMAN
    SHORT-CUT TO HELL

    Jas Grimshaw works as a mining pilot for the ice harvesting operations at New Jakarta Space Station. In his free time, he's a mindbase traveller. His mind travels on a bullet probe to other parts of settled space to swap bodies while other people occupy his.
    
    	Normally, it's a great way of seeing the galaxy, but one of his swaps is about to go very, very bad. The swap mind, a brilliant scientist, has no intention to return to his body, which he's left in a tight spot. And Jas, laid back, poorly-educated, is not the best person to cope with the tense situation.
