BOOK OVERVIEWS: The Raven Edgar Allan Poe - In Gustave Doré, one of the most prolific and successful book illustrators of the late 19h century, Edgar Allan Poe's renowned poem The Raven found perhaps its most perfect artistic interpreter. Doré's dreamlike, otherworldly style, tinged with melancholy, seems ideally matched to the bleak despair of Poe's celebrated work, among the most popular American poems ever written.This volume reprints all 26 of Doré's detailed, masterly engravings from a rare 19th-century edition of the poem. Relevant lines from the poem are printed on facing pages and the complete text is also included. Admirers of Doré will find ample evidence here of his characteristic ability to capture the mood and meaning of a work of literature in striking imagery; lovers of The Raven will delight in seeing its mournful musing on love and loss given dramatic pictorial form.

BOOK OVERVIEWS: From the #1 bestselling author of the Dark-Hunters comes an all new tale her fans have been waiting almost two decades to read. A post-apocalyptic tale unlike any you ever seen: The virus ran swiftly on the hot summer breeze. Unseen. Unheard. Unknown. It swept through the entire earth in a matter of months, having mercy on no one. Young—old—it didn’t matter. Brought to us by the Drabs, it was the last thing we expected. But the Drabs knew. They even fought a war over whether or not they should save us. In the end, it was decided that we were diseased insects who were unfit to breathe their air. Our air. So they left the human race to die a miserable death of agonizing pain in a matter of months. Left us with no doctors or medicine. Their plan was to rid the earth of us and to take our home as their own. What they never expected was the change that would come after the plague. We didn’t all die off as they’d planned. Those under the age of twenty somehow managed to survive the disease. We managed to hide ourselves while our bodies changed. Still human, but now something else. Something more powerful and more intuitive. More pissed off. Now possessed of magical powers and abilities beyond belief, we’re still here on this earth, and we’re not leaving. This is our home. Our planet. Drabs take note and learn to be afraid. You’ve had a hundred years here on earth, but now your time here is done. You called us rodents. Insects. Diseased animals. The scraps of humanity—and that, my Drab friend, we certainly are. But what you should have realized is that you can’t kill a Scrap. Humanity isn’t dead. Not by a long shot. We still have our soldiers and we have our conviction. Most of all, we have hope. And we will win in the end. Whatever it takes. Whatever it costs. We won’t allow you to take our planet from us. So count your days, Drabs. The war is on. This edition also contains the short story The Witch of Endor.

BOOK OVERVIEWS: Über das Vergehen der Zeit, über Verschwinden und Wiederkehr, Vergänglichkeit und Ewigkeit - Cécile Wajsbrots neuer Roman, kongenial übersetzt von Anne Weber. Nach dem Tod einer befreundeten Schriftstellerin zieht sich eine Übersetzerin nach Dresden zurück, um dort an der Übertragung von Virginia Woolfs Roman "To the lighthouse" zu arbeiten. Aus ihren tastenden Versuchen, sich der fremden Sprache und Zeit anzunähern, und den Überlegungen, die sie dabei anstellt, entsteht eine betörende Musik. Bei ihren nächtlichen Spaziergängen glaubt sie der toten Freundin zu begegnen und noch einmal mit ihr reden zu können. Ihre Einsamkeit weitet sich zu einem gewaltigen Echoraum, der von dem verfallenen Haus in Virginia Woolfs Roman über das einstmals zerstörte Dresden bis zur High Line, einer ehemaligen New Yorker Industrieruine, und zur Verbotenen Zone um Tschernobyl reicht. Orte, die dem Verfall, der Zerstörung anheimgegeben sind und doch wieder aufleben, abgebrochene Welten, in denen noch Kraft schlummert für einen Neuanfang. Übersetzen als Über-Setzen zu anderen Ufern, zu den Verschwundenen; in eine andere Zeitlichkeit.
