Now a new employer has recruited him for a last-chance run against an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence. With a mirror-eyed girl street-samurai riding shotgun, he's ready for the silicon-quick, bleakly prophetic adventure that upped the ante on an entire genre of fiction.

    Man, I had so many stab wounds, it was crazy. There I was at the conference center, and I hadn't even adequately prepared my presentation. And so begins "Bleeding Man and Wounded Deer," one of the stories in this collection of literary short fiction from the pen of acclaimed Seattle novelist Ryan Boudinot. Bouncing between experimental fiction, absurdist farce, paranoid futurism, and stinging satire, Boudinot's funny, inventive prose lays bare the hopes and anxieties of our age. From a heartbreaking and pitch-perfect account of the end of Bert and Ernie's relationship, to a story about lovelorn robots looking for a "chop-shop owner who's willing to look the other way" in a world where robot sex is illegal, to a Miyazaki-esque story about an entire town that shares the same heart, Boudinot's prose crackles an acerbic wit. Also featuring: "Chopsticks" (the protaganist's cat who develops a hard drug problem); "An Essay and a Story about Mötley Crüe" (wish-fulfillment disguised as memoir); "I Used to Be a Plastic Bottle!"; and "The Guy Who Kept Meeting Himself."

Combining elements of Gothic Romance, the Newgate Novel and popular melodrama, Dickens created an entirely newkind of fiction, scathing in its indictment of a cruel society, and pervaded by an unforgettable sense of threat and mystery.

    T. H. White's masterful retelling of the saga of King Arthur is a fantasy classic as legendary as the sword Excalibur and city of Camelot that are found within its pages. This magical epic takes Arthur from the glorious lyrical phase of his youth, through the disillusioning early years of his reign, to maturity when his vision of the Round Table develops into the search for the Holy Grail, and finally to his weary old age. With memorable characters like Merlin and Owl and Guinevere, beasts who talk and men who fly, wizardry and war, The Once and Future King has become the fantasy masterpiece against which all others are judged, a poignant story of adventure, romance, and magic that has enchanted readers for generations.

    Orchardist

    Orchardist

    $10.00
    More Info

    The New York Times bestselling novel that is historical fiction at its best--a haunting story about a makeshift family in the American West that follows in the grand literary tradition of William Faulkner, Marilynne Robinson, Michael Ondaatje, Annie Proulx, and Toni Morrison--now available in a limited Olive Edition.

    "A stunning accomplishment, hypnotic in its storytelling power, by turns lyrical and gritty, and filled with marvels."--National Public Radio

    At the turn of the twentieth century, in a rural stretch of the Pacific Northwest, a reclusive orchardist, William Talmadge, tends to apples and apricots as if they were loved ones. A gentle man, he's found solace in the sweetness of the fruit he grows and the quiet, beating heart of the land he cultivates. One day, two teenage girls appear and steal his fruit at the market; they later return to the outskirts of his orchard to see the man who gave them no chase.

    Feral, scared, and very pregnant, the girls take up on Talmadge's land and indulge in his deep reservoir of compassion. Just as the girls begin to trust him, men arrive in the orchard with guns, and the shattering tragedy that follows will set Talmadge on an irrevocable course not only to save and protect them but also to reconcile the ghosts of his own troubled past.

    Transcribing America as it once was before railways and roads connected its corners, Amanda Coplin weaves a tapestry of solitary souls who come together in the wake of unspeakable cruelty and misfortune. She writes with breathtaking precision and empathy, and in The Orchardist she crafts an astonishing debut novel about a man who disrupts the lonely harmony of an ordered life when he opens his heart and lets the world in.

    Knife throwers. Ominous fortresses. Angry mimes. Snack festivals. Morose contortionists. Guillotines. Smiling journalists. Lonely young women. Lingering hope. Incompetence. Desperation. Funny disguises.

    Plus two hardcover books in a gold-encrusted slipcase, twenty full-color illustrations, and an unprecedented feat of interactive book design.

    A hapless circus troupe tours the countryside of a downtrodden nation, trying to earn a living the best way they know -- even though their best isn't very good at all: a morose contortionist, a strongman who'd rather be miming, a lion tamer paired with an elderly dog, etc. Toward the end of a typically glum performance, Zloty Kornblatt, the troupe's ringmaster, accidentally blunders into a mockery of the nation's glorious leader. He doesn't even know why the sparse crowd is laughing, but they are -- and so he continues with the inadvertent satire, ending the show on a rare triumphant note.

    The confused ringmaster is quickly captured, thrown into prison, and sentenced to death. The troupe must design an intricate prison-break built around their unique (and possibly useless) skills. Hijinks ensue, recounted with deadpan humor and flickering hope by Flora Bialy, Zloty's understudy and our shy narrator.

    More Info

    The Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about the remarkable year one woman spent in Virginia's Roanoke Valley--now available in a limited Olive Edition.

    "A remarkable psalm of terror and celebration."--Time

    Pilgrim at Tinker Creek is the story of a dramatic year in Virginia's Roanoke Valley. Annie Dillard sets out to see what she can see. What she sees are astonishing incidents of beauty tangled in a rapture with violence.

    Her personal narrative highlights one year's exploration on foot in the Virginia region through which Tinker Creek runs. In the summer, Dillard stalks muskrats in the creek and contemplates wave mechanics; in the fall, she watches a monarch butterfly migration and dreams of Arctic caribou. She tries to con a coot; she collects pond water and examines it under a microscope. She unties a snake skin, witnesses a flood, and plays King of the Meadow with a field of grasshoppers. The result is an exhilarating tale of nature and its seasons.

    Poems About Trees

    Poems About Trees

    $14.95
    More Info
    A unique anthology of poems--from around the world and through the ages--that celebrate trees.

    For thousands of years humans have variously worshipped trees, made use of them, admired them, and destroyed them--and poets have long chronicled the relationship. Poets from Homer and Virgil to Wordsworth, Whitman, and Thoreau, from Su Tung P'o and Basho to Czeslaw Milosz and W. S. Merwin have celebrated sacred groves, wild woodlands, and bountiful orchards, and the results include some of our most beloved poems.

    Robert Frost's Birches, Marianne Moore's The Camperdown Elm, Gerard Manley Hopkins's Binsey Poplars, and Zbigniew Herbert's Sequoia stand tall beside Eugenio Montale's The Lemon Trees, Yves Bonnefoy's The Apples, Bertolt Brecht's The Plum Tree, D. H. Lawrence's The Almond Tree, and A. E. Housman's Loveliest of Trees. Whether showing their subjects being planted or felled, cherished or lamented, towering in forests or flowering in backyards, the poems collected here pay lyrical tribute to these majestic beings with whom we share the earth.
