With a sly blend of fantasy, humor, and paranormal adventure, Kevin Hearne has established a reputation as the trickster god of action-packed mash-ups. His signature creation, Atticus O’Sullivan, is a folk hero for the twenty-first century, battling legendary beasts, shadowy mystics, and demonic demigods from around the world. Now this addictive eBook bundle brings together the first six novels of The Iron Druid Chronicles (with bonus novellas and short stories) in one supersized dose of genre-smashing mayhem: HOUNDED HEXED HAMMERED TRICKED TWO RAVENS AND ONE CROW (NOVELLA) TRAPPED HUNTED GRIMOIRE OF THE LAMB (NOVELLA) Also includes the short stories “Clan Rathskeller” and “Kaibab Unbound,” as well as a special preview of Kevin Hearne’s upcoming novel A Plague of Giants! Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old—when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries. Now the determined deity has tracked him down, and Atticus will need all his power—plus the help of a seductive goddess of death, his vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, a bartender possessed by a Hindu witch, and some good old-fashioned luck of the Irish—to kick some Celtic arse and deliver himself from evil. Praise for Kevin Hearne and The Iron Druid Chronicles “Neil Gaiman’s American Gods meets Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden.”—SFFWorld “[The Iron Druid books] are clever, fast paced and a good escape.”—Jason Weisberger, Boing Boing “Celtic mythology and an ancient Druid with modern attitude mix it up in the Arizona desert in this witty new fantasy series.”—Kelly Meding, author of Tempest “[Atticus is] a strong modern hero with a long history and the wit to survive in the twenty-first century. . . . A snappy narrative voice.”—Library Journal, on Hounded “Outrageously fun.”—The Plain Dealer, on Hounded “Superb . . . plenty of quips and zap-pow-bang fighting.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review), on Hounded “An exciting mix of comedy, action, and mythology . . . [Atticus] is one of the best main characters currently present in the urban fantasy genre.”—Fantasy Book Critic, on Tricked

Mike hat Glück: Seine Eltern besitzen ein Ferienhaus in Long Island, berühmte Freunde gehen ein und aus, ihm wurde die beste Schulbildung zuteil und sein älterer Bruder Lyle beschützte ihn, wenn ihre Eltern mal wieder stritten.

Bangkok fasziniert ihn – trotz der Exzesse und der Gewalt, die ihm begegnen. Als zu Hause ein schreckliches Unglück passiert, kehrt Mike zurück in die USA, um seinem Bruder beizustehen, der Wahnvorstellungen hat. Dann passiert der amerikanische Alptraum, und während das World Trade Center brennt, begibt sich Mike auf die Suche nach Lyle, der gleich neben den Twin Towers wohnt, um ihn zu retten.

Features the plays Debris, Osama the Hero, After the End and Love and Money. These four plays are linked by their characters' desperate need to believe that there is more to life than the often brutal worlds in which they find themselves. Kelly's remarkable debut Debris finds humour and pathos in a spectacularly dysfunctional family unit. The harrowing Osama the Hero shows a group of neighbours taking ill-defined revenge on an odd-ball teenager in a climate of fear. In After the End a woman discovers she has been rescued from Armageddon by a paranoid ex-colleague with a nuclear bunker in his garden. And in a fractured narrative Love and Money portrays a marriage driven to brutal destruction by financial pressures.

"This rich tale of drug dealing and union-busting, murder and mayhem on both sides of the law, begins when Victor Ribe, an ex-junkie and World War I veteran, is mysteriously released from prison after serving fifteen years for a murder he didn't commit. He returns to a city where Prohibition has been repealed and a dark underworld is developing a new source of profits--illegal heroin trafficking. Meanwhile, legitimate industries are launching an offensive against unionization and the specter of Communism--and they're not above fighting dirty. When Victor's old Army buddy, Freddy Stillman, a munitions salesman, reports a murder but can't explain why the body has disappeared, he unwittingly pulls himself and Victor into the bewildering swirl of corruption and conspiracy that encompasses everyone in the book's vast, raging cityscape. Combining the atmospheric richness of Dashiell Hammett and the irresistible, subversive humor of Thomas Pynchon, The Disappearing Body weaves suspenseful mystery into a stunning, darkly hilarious portrait of urban America between the wars."--Publisher's description.

Essential for students of Theatre Studies, this series of six decadal volumes provides a critical survey and reassessment of the theatre produced in each decade from the 1950s to the present. Each volume equips readers with an understanding of the context from which work emerged, a detailed overview of the range of theatrical activity and a close study of the work of four of the major playwrights by a team of leading scholars. Chris Megson's comprehensive survey of the theatre of the 1970s examines the work of four playwrights who came to promience in the decade and whose work remains undiminished today: Caryl Churchill (by Paola Botham), David Hare (Chris Megson), Howard Brenton (Richard Boon) and David Edgar (Janelle Reinelt). It analyses their work then, its legacy today and provides a fresh assessment of their contribution to British theatre. Interviews with the playwrights, with directors and with actors provides an invaluable collection of documents offering new perspectives on the work. Revisiting the decade from the perspective of the twenty-first century, Chris Megson provides an authoritative and stimulating reassessment of British playwriting in the 1970s.
