John Crow's Devil
18,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

The debut novel of the winner of the Man Booker Prize 2015 Jamaica, 1957 On a day beginning with a bad omen - black vultures, known locally as John Crows, crash through the local church windows - a handsome and charismatic stranger drags the village preacher from his pulpit and takes over both church and congregation. Promising vengeance and damnation, he wastes no time delivering both, and in doing so starts a power struggle that sets the village of Gibbeah on a path to destruction. With language as taut as classic works by Cormac McCarthy, and a richness reminiscent of early Toni Morrison, John Crow's Devil is a terrifying and moving novel about religious mania, redemption, sexual obsession and the eternal struggle between the righteous and the wicked.

In Our House: Tantalizing Tales of Terror
2,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

With In Our House: Tantalizing Tales of Terror, Award-winning author Peter A. Balaskas unleashes his unique style of mesmerizing horror once again. This collection of short stories takes readers on a dark journey into that shadow realm between the real and surreal, where ordinary people find themselves confronted by extraordinary things. Close the windows. Lock the doors. Check under the bed. And make yourself at home…in our house. 'Like Patricia Highsmith or even early Stephen King, Balaskas is shaping himself into a modern master of magic and terror. Not just the magic of the supernatural, but the simple magic between people; not just the terror of the monstrous, but the scare of ordinary people pushed to extraordinary extremes and desperate measures with catastrophic consequences.' Marlon James, NY Times Editor's Choice and LA Book Prize Finalist of John Crow's Devil and The Book of Night Women 'In his short story collection In Our House, Peter Balaskas delights in presenting to us terrible men and then further delights in delivering to them their well-earned comeuppance. A wicked read.' David Fuller, Edgar Award Nominee for Sweetsmoke 'In Our House is a mosaic of prosaic poetry at its twisted finest; intense, plot-driven stories bent on creativity and warped with mischief. Step aside King, Bradbury, and Poe, for a new master to the genre has arrived.' Michael Mehas, author of Stolen Boy 'Set in what Hawthorne called that 'nuetral territory...where the Actual and Imaginary may meet,' these stories plumb the night side of our collective unconsciousness with the wit and skill of a seasoned storyteller. At his best, in stories likeCrossing the Styx and Wash Cycle, Peter Balaskas makes the distinction between speculative fiction and literary fiction all but irrelevant: simply put, he keeps us reading.' Pete Duval, author of Rear View
