A “towering, swash-buckling thrill of a book” (Newsweek), hailed as Chabon’s “magnum opus” (The New York Review of Books), The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay is a triumph of originality, imagination, and storytelling, an exuberant, irresistible novel that begins in New York City in 1939. A young escape artist and budding magician named Joe Kavalier arrives on the doorstep of his cousin, Sammy Clay.

Download and read online The Red Clay Desert in PDF and EPUB In the twenty-fifth century, what used to be called the Midwestern section of the United States of America, all the way from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada, has become desert.

Fourteen-year-old Kyle Haze must help his family defend the area, just as his ancestors did over many previous generations. Means of monetary exchange, transportation, community, and industry are long gone since the only active government is that of local communities. Fighting among area clans is common when survival is at stake and resources are scarce. Those remaining in the harsh environment must migrate, mutate, adapt, or die. After the Chastain clan attacks his father, Kyle and his kin are driven from the only home they've ever known. They set out to renew their lives up north, a land foreign to them, while attempting to keep their family intact. Kyle must constantly lead them in and out of life-threatening circumstances, bringing out the best and worst of humanity in order to survive another day in their primitive world and avenge the damage done to his family by other clans.

Download and read online Walk Like a Man in PDF and EPUB For years I have been saying “as soon as this is over, I’m going to write a book.” Well, it’s over…at least the physical part…and the walk has been long and hard. Clay, my second son, and I discussed writing a book for years. I’m sure his version would have been much different. I wanted him to write his own story — finding out he was gay, his feelings, and his experiences while traveling his life in California, his experiences with the new gay disease. He never did. He just lived it. His actions, his activities, and his contributions to the world are telling their own story of his life. As I was chronicling this walk, I realized Clay’s story is a story about Clay, as a person, me, as a person, and the people in our path. This book is dedicated to Clay, who was a “mixed blessing,” and to the bodies strewn along the path of the epidemic called AIDS, hewn out of history. It is my hope and the hope of those who knew and loved Clay that our experience will make someone else’s walk less painful, less lonely.

Download and read online The Girl Clay in PDF and EPUB Ten years ago, a scared little girl was supposed to lead a doomsday cult to a new level of spiritual awakening. Today, that same little girl is on the run, desperately trying to stay one step ahead of a vengeful minor deity. Rebecca 'Clay' Layton knows that one day the past will catch up to her. Ever since her mother took her to live with the Cult of Attaroth, something has been different about Clay: not only does she have a striking ability to communicate with the dead, but she has also drawn the attention of a dangerous, unstable entity that wants to use her as his instrument. Attaroth is both a god and a demon, all rolled into one. He has Clay in his sights, and he's determined to draw her back into his game. When he forces her to travel to the remote town of Silverglade, however, it becomes clear that Attaroth's plans are far darker than anyone could ever have expected. After ten years, a horrific prophecy is about to be put to the test, and Clay's blood is required. The Girl Clay is the story of a little girl who was pushed too far, and a woman who finally has to stop running and face the demon from her childhood.
Download and read online Staggering Secrets in the Clay Tablets in PDF and EPUB The phone rang, and a voice in Spanish said, "I'm Carlos. In excavations in Rome, they have found a new Gospel, in Latin, on clay tablets. The tablets went directly into the Vatican. However, I have a copy from a friend within the Vatican-we'd like to have it in English. He said, "I have a Spanish translation. If I post you the transcript, could you translate it?" I said I could. I'm simply an Australian journalist, who worked for United Press. Carlos said, "I only ask your word that you will not photocopy the Spanish version, and when you finish, you'll hand it back to me, together with a copy of your own version." Leaving me hanging out on a limb, in thin air but when I read it, I could see that it was authentic. When I finished, we met. I asked him for his phone number, and he told me they'd call me if needed. A week later, he rang, and said, "That's beautifully written, what you've done." I never heard from him again.
Download and read online Henyas Tree in PDF and EPUB Born in September 1942, Joseph A. Stokes began writing short stories after he retired. There was one story (Henyas’ Tree) that mostly developed on its own. It is a story about the interactions between various aggressive, strong willed characters. The author developed an interest in human interaction while attending school. It affected the remainder of his course selections and later gave direction to a career. In 1970 he was working at a large plant. Within his first months of work, he jumped at the chance to join the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Committee. His duties involved visits to local minority organizations and meeting with employees of all ages, races, etc., on matters that might affect their work performance. The author worked 28 years as a problem-solving counselor, investigator, specialist and unit manager. It helped him understand people and the directions a person might take under stress. A strong-willed, multi-raced woman was born into a life she would not accept; a world of servitude that demanded she be dutiful to others. At an early age she was separated from her family and, therefore, was required to grow up quickly. This was done with the assistance of a surrogate mother, Haddie. It was Haddie that gave her the confidence and courage to adjust to and accept her lot in life. She was able to allow herself to commit to her affections and a life with a man who was well outside of her social status.
