Summary

There are two things that can last into eternity. 13 Forevers: Stories and Reflections on Death and Love is a collection of short works (mostly stories) which dives deep into dual themes, both in all of their emotional complexity.Meet a cannibal who's starved for affection in "Consumption." 
Experience a mystical connection forged through our memorial rituals in "Flowers at Funerals." 
Discover how mind-blowing sex can lead to murder in "The Position."Listen in on a first date between serial killers in "Bloody Bloody" and the interactions of two interred corpses in “Love Afterlife.” 
Combining liberal doses of dark satire and gruesome farce with heartfelt grief, staggering affection, and a sprinkling of hard-won wisdom, 13 Forevers is a wide-ranging yet thematically coherent collection of stories, poems, and essays as keen and compelling as a switchblade. In Kevin Chaba's own words, the book explores his “borderline obsession with the single worst—and single best—aspects of life.”
Available since: 06/20/2017.

    Rosa Mulholland was born in Belfast on 19th March 1841.  
     
    She originally wished to become a painter but turned to literary pursuits and attempted to publish her first book at 15. Charles Dickens, who took an early interest in her work, did much to encourage and help her during his lifetime including publishing many of her works in his magazine ‘All the Year Round’. 
     
    Her early years in the remote and mountainous west of Ireland helped her gather backdrops, landscapes and characters that would be put to great use later in her career.    
     
    Mulholland was a keen poet and was published in magazines and journals as well as in book form. She was also a devout Catholic and prominent in literacy circles. 
     
    In May 1891 she married John Thomas Gilbert in Dublin.  He was a Dublin antiquarian and historian, who authored the ‘History of the City of Dublin’, and edited several other important standard works. With his knighthood in 1897 Rosa became Lady Gilbert. 
     
    Mulholland was a prolific and well-received writer during her career. Her early works tend to show women yearning for careers and lifestyles that at that point society would not accept and she was careful not to overstep those boundaries.  In her later years much of her fiction was embedded with independent, strong-willed female heroines. 
     
    Rosa Mulholland died on 21st April 1921 in Dublin, Ireland. 
     
    One of Mulholland’s most popular short stories is ‘The Ghost at the Rath’. An inherited house is not as welcoming as one hoped it would be.

    In God's Gym, the celebrated author John Edgar Wideman offers stories that pulse with emotional electricity. The ten pieces here explore strength, both physical and spiritual. The collection opens with a man paying tribute to the quiet fortitude of his mother, a woman who "should wear a T-shirt: God's Gym." In the stories that follow, Wideman delivers powerful riffs on family and fate, basketball and belief. His mesmerizing prose features guest appearances by cultural luminaries as diverse as the Harlem Globetrotters, Frantz Fanon, Thelonious Monk, and Marilyn Monroe. As always, Wideman astounds with writing that moves from the intimate to the political, from shock to transcendence.
