The Rock Child: An Adventure of the Heart (American Dreamers Book 4)

by Win Blevins

“Win Blevins-that master yarn-spinner-has done it again with The Rock Child. A wonderfully wild one which you don’t want to miss.” â?? Tony Hillerman. Packed with drama, adventure, humor, the lore of American Indians and Tibetan Buddhists, plus unforgettable characters, this book is a dazzling tour de force and a deeply moving story.

An unlikely trio comprised of the Shoshone Indian Asie, a Tibetan nun, and Sir Richard Burtonâ??the famous soldier and explorerâ??flees from the Utah Territory to California in 1862. The Destroying Angel of the Mormon Church, Porter Rockwell, pursues them relentlessly.

The journey is jam-packed with unforgettable incidents and colorful characters, including a fledgling journalist named Mark Twain. In the end Asie discovers why he was named the Rock Child, what it means to be a man of color in America, what spiritual path will nurture him, who his people are, and the strength of love.

Reviews

“Blevins, whose book Stone Song fictionalized the life of the legendary Crazy Horse, has stated his aim is to write â??mythic novels of the American West.’ He meets that goal in The Rock Child. The voices shift between an Indian-Anglo musical savant; Sun Moon, a virginal Tibetan nun shanghaied into American prostitution; and Sir Richard Burton, real-life explorer, linguist, and Arabian Nights translator.

“Joining Burton in rescuing Asie and Sun Moon from a dreadful fate is Mark Twain, a comedic catalyst that surprisingly few historical novelists have thought to exploit. Like Twain, Burton is well drawn. He’s a cultivated, Sean Connery-type sinner who feels badly about his appetites, and the picaresque passages told from his perspective enliven this ambitious narrative.” â?? Library Journal

“A colorful novel set among the Mormons in 1862, featuring such real folks as Sam Clemens, Sir Richard Burton, Brigham Young, and Porter Rockwell, by the author of Stone Song, Win Blevins.

“Half-Indian Asie Taylor, a musical prodigy who has been accepted into the Church of the Latter-day Saints, drowns when his delivery wagon is overturned in a flash flood. He experiences an out-of-body experience, returns to life, and is amazed to see the scarred but beautiful face of Sun Moon above him. Sun is a Tibetan Buddhist nun who was kidnapped in Asia and shipped to America to be sold into prostitution. Tarim, the tavernkeeper who bought her, expects to resell her for a hefty sum.

“When Porter Rockwell, a Mormon known as the Destroying Angel (he seeks out and kills enemies of the church) buys Sun Moon, he attempts to satisfy his lust. Frustrated by his inability to do so, he disfigures her face. Sun Moon flees and falls in with Asie, who has decided to go in search of his origins and the meaning of his Shoshone name, Rock Child. Meanwhile, Rockwell is in pursuit of Sun Moon, determined to kill herâ??and anyone who gets in his way.

“Tibetan-speaking Sir Richard Burton, a brilliant opium addict, is in Salt Lake City to persuade Brigham Young to form a separate Western Confederacy. Burton saves Asie and Sun Moon from Rockwell and joins their quest. For a while, Brigham Young gives them sanctuary from Rockwell, though Rockwell later follows the trio to San Francisco.

“The climax would satisfy the Buddha himself as his teachings resoundingly bring the murderous Rockwell to heel. The historical detail serves a charming treasure.” â?? Kirkus Reviews

“â??Life is a flabbergaster,’ says Asie Taylor, hero of Win Blevins’s The Rock Child, a story that will flabbergast every reader who opens it. This is a rich, funny, fascinating, meaningful, and memorable novel from the author of that incredible masterpiece about Crazy Horse, Stone Song.” â??Rocky Mountain News

“Win Blevins displays an antic imagination, not only in mingling actual and invented characters, but in melding gritty action-adventure with metaphysical musings.” â?? Dale Wasserman, author of Man of La Mancha

A Guide to First Contact (Mandat Culturel Book 1)

by Terence Park

A Guide to First Contact deconstructs unrelated narratives from the future, the present and the past, fitting them together so that they drip feed through the larger design. Gradually a grand mosaic develops. Links between the protagonist and the various other entities are established. Machinations, both human and alien take shape. What are their motives? the reader isn’t forced to a decision. The protagonist remains an enigma.

=============================================

Brent has a problem. He doesn’t fit. The woman he fancies heads up a research team. They’re busy looking into genetics and the history of man. But the story doesn’t start there; long, long ago, in the late pleistocene was just when aliens were planning the next phase in Earth’s development.

Back in the present day, Brent’s long-time buddy, Watcher, bails him out again. Brent keeps flunking the College of Life. He could win awards for being hapless. The thing is, his best buddy, Watcher, is into stuff like conspiracies. Be careful Brent or you’ll be hung out to dry.

Forty years later, the West has collapsed and the apocalypse in full swing. What happened? Earth was contacted by aliens. Lots of things were triggered. No one has worked out what to do with the undying flesh of the undead. Xenogens are raging out of control. Catch one and you degenerate into a dangerous, sub-human brute. The problem with dangerous, sub-human brutes is they’re xenogen carriers so most cities are abandoned as unsafe; they’ve become Former Urban Areas – FUA for short. Former Urban Area One (ex New York) is crawling with them. Triste prowls its streets. There’s always work for a mercenary

Watch out Triste; something wicked is coming.

Of course heroes never listen. Triste meets Shoe. Shoe’s on the run. They stumble upon an abandoned research lab and they find old records – of life before the apocalypse; but will they work out what went wrong? Do they want to? Shoe has got dark secrets; she knows more about xenogens than she lets on. There are other things she can’t tell Triste.

First contact, hot alien women, degenerative mutants, gore, undead, Pax Francophone, the death of the West (all worked out), Lovecraftian themes with added philosophical musing for ballast.

=============================================

Guide takes the reader on a journey from the beginning of mankind to the outer reaches of the solar system, and into a post apocalyptic future. The relentless urge to explore and expand results in the discovery of a terrible secret. There are some things it’s better not to know.
We aren’t alone.
There is a plan.
Humanity become chaff, cast to the wind.

Multiple story lines.
Sufi themes.

=============================================

Guide was originally designed in a nonlinear fashion. Previous editions compromised this
by imposing a linear structure. In this 4th edition, the Interlogs are positioned closer to where they were designed to go.



L’uomo nero (Italian Edition)

by Luigi Sorrenti

Dall’autore di “Immagina i corvi” e “L’accordo del diavolo”

TRAMA
Un misterioso e inafferrabile serial killer, soprannominato dalla stampa l’Uomo Nero, colpisce all’interno delle stazioni della metropolitana di Roma, seminando il panico fra la popolazione. Il primo delitto avviene la vigilia di Natale, l’ultimo la vigilia di Pasqua, nel mezzo tre mesi di assoluta follia in cui l’intera città sembra precipitare.
Roma ancora una volta nella sua storia si trova a rivivere l’eterno conflitto fra bene e male, fra lo splendore di una città millenaria e il miasma pestilenziale della barbarie umana, fra la sua grandezza e le sue secolari miserie.



Nel pentagramma liquido dei pensieri (Spin Off) (Italian Edition)

by Eléna Italiano

Questo è lo spin off di Saudade

Cuori ribelli, fragili, in burrasca, in risacca, personalità complesse e spigolose, narcise, intolleranti, inadeguate, arrendevoli a tratti e, a tratti, ostinatamente determinate animano le pagine di Saudade, romanzo sperimentale di un’autrice non nuova nel panorama editoriale contemporaneo.
Una scommessa di stile che ripudia il prosaico pur muovendosi all’interno di esso. Una storia d’amore laconicamente carnale tinta di un misticismo duro a morire. Personaggi ombra, polimorfi, accostandosi a quelli principali, da una più spiccata tendenza integralista, mostreranno, tra le pieghe dei loro temperamenti â?? come in un gioco di contrasti â?? il chiaroscuro dei plissettati emozionali. Sarà impossibile lasciarli andare via, correndo il rischio che vengano insabbiati dalla memoria come conchiglie viandanti sul fondale del mare. Chi leggerà Saudade non potrà più prescindere da questa narrazione e, avidamente, vorrà leggerne il prosieguo.
