8 Alberto, Eliseo; Grossman, Edith (translated by) Caracol Beach
0375405402 / 9780375405402; Winner of Spain's prestigious Alfaguara Prize in Fiction, this book is a gripping, kaleidoscopic novel about isolation, love, fear, and the collison of strangers' lives on one fateful night in a Florida town. On the outskirts of the quiet resort community of Caracol Beach, its unlikeliest - and perhaps most dangerous - resident plots his own demise. A Cuban veteran of the war in Angola, the sole survivor of an ambush that killed off the rest of his platoon, Beto Milanes has for eighteen years been racked with guilt and grief, and tormented by terrible visions. With audacity, humor, and deep insight into the human condition, Eliseo Alberto explores the horror of war, the pain of exile, the power of forgiveness and the inescapable, sometimes cruel toll of destiny. The story that unfolds is shocking and comic, evoking classic tragedy and the absurdity of modern life. Includes an appendix. There is a small red dot at the page bottoms. The jacket has a few tiny brown spots on the front. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. ; 286 pages

The Song of Songs, Aleichem, Shalom; Leviant, Curt (translated by)
9 Aleichem, Shalom; Leviant, Curt (translated by) The Song of Songs
Shalom Aleichem was called "The Yiddish Mark Twain" long before his stories about Teyva the milkman were transmuted into Fiddler on the Roof but he wrote only one love story: The Song of Songs - now published for the first time in book form. With its echoes of its biblical ancestor, this is the most beautiful love story in Yiddish literature. Told in four parts beginning in the 19th century, beautifully written and translated, framed by the periodic cycle of the natural world, and magically decorated with a dozen specially commissioned paintings, this edition of The Song of Songs brings to compassionate life two of the most memorable star-crossed lovers in modern literature. 8 1/4" square. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall; SHOP

11 Amis, Martin Time's Arrow : or the Nature of the Offense
0517585154 / 9780517585153; Tod Friendly, now living in an American suburb, is a doctor who worked in the medical unit at Auschwitz. Narrating his story is a doppelganger imprisoned within Dr. Friendly, sharing his every sensory impression; a separate conciousness that is literally living the doctor's life backward from death to birth. This spectral observer's ignorance of the doctor's past combines with the reader's awful knowledge to reverse the numbing effects of time and gives history the impact of direct experience. The jacket has a 1/2" closed tear from the edge of the spine to the front at about the middle of the spine. 168 pages, no marks or tears. Price not clipped. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

12 Ammerman, Mark Longshot (Cross and the Tomahawk Ser. , Vol. 3)
0889651655 / 9780889651654; Three men. Eight months. Fifteen hundred miles. A dauntless journey from the darkness to the light. "With the loss of the open forest - that great, green and once-boundless world that had called the Indian from his bed each morning since his forefathers first walked eastward to the sea - the New England Indian was a man without a soul. His bowstring grew limp, his arrows lay bent and broken in the browning ferns of the autumn of his race, and his tomahawk (long-since made of English steel) rusted in its scabbard. But he was a man. And the spirit of a man will not lie dormant forever, no matter how many seasons of darkness and despair have laid it low. Somehow he will rise again to run the old and shadowed paths of his forebears. But one Other runs the path as well, tirelessly pursuing. No man can run forever, and God never sleeps. " Mark Ammerman 301 pages, including historical notes and a bibliography. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

13 Ammerman, Mark The Rain from God
0889651345 / 9780889651340; This is Book 1 of The Cross and the Tomahawk series. The motivation of the author to write this series comes from a 300-year-old connection to one of the principal characters, Roger Williams, who is his great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather. From the author: "I stand at the dawn of the early 17th century in the ancient New England woods and look about me at the oncoming collison of two wildly disparate cultures. Even though I have wandered these winding paths for the past 4 years, I still feel that I know so little of these dark days past. But I am determined, as I walk beneath these sylvan giants, to hold up a candle for both you and me in order to better see what lies within the shadows. There is real history here, real life, real love, real passion and adventure - and the knowledge of the Holy. Come, walk with me!" 320 pages including historical notes and a bibliography. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

0889651353 / 9780889651357; Some cried War! And spilled the blood of man upon the soil. Some preached Peace, and begged the blood of God upon the soul. "Most of the people you will meet in these pages are real people whose stories were first told in the journals, diaries, pamphlets, books, and town records of the 17th century New England colonists The culture of the New England Indian and the New England colonist is widely documented - I have tried very hard to walk in the moccasins of the one and the shoes of the other, thinking their thoughts and speaking their hearts. I found that my own conception of both the Indian and the Puritan had been skewed by Hollywood and Hawthorne, and that the actual record tells us a tale far more complicated and fascinating. Through a dark glass we can still see it. " Mark Ammerman 392 pages including bibliography, glossary of terms, and historical notes. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

15 Anderson, Poul Time and Stars
From the Doubleday Science Fiction Book Club comes this new anthology of short stories written by the author. The stories included are: No Truce With Kings, Turning Point, Escape From Orbit, Epilogue, The Critique of Impure Reason, and Eve Times Four. A space ship pilot attempts to isolate a few lovely ladies for his own purposes, on what he thinks is an uninhabited planet (Eve Times Four) . A scout team from Earth discovers that the natives of Joril are more intelligent than human beings (Turning Point) . A future - and fragmented - America fights for its spiritual, as well as its physical integrity (No Truce With Kings) . All stories are set in the future, and beautifully illustrate a popular contention that "science fiction is essentially the story both of the impact of the scientific future upon man, and the impact of man upon that future. " The jacket has light to medium wear at the corners, with a 2" repaired tear at the back bottom corner. Both ends of the spine are missing a small part of the cover, and the spine is a bit faded.

16 Anthony, Piers; Pickover, Clifford A. Spider Legs
0312864655 / 9780312864651; It is said that there are more things under heaven and earth than there are almost anywhere else; true as well that many of them lurk, unsuspected, far below the surface of the planet's ocean. For thousands of years, mankind has simultaneously trusted in the sea's proverbial generosity, and used it as a dumping ground, trusting that in its vastness his garbage will be swallowed up and forgotten. But that was never really true. And now, in an age when the overcrowded Earth swarms with hungry inhabitants whose waste chokes even the sea, whose greedy demands overtax its seemingly endless bounty, strange things are born in the ocean's deeps - strange things that the ocean throws back upon the land. 289 pages. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
