Twidders by Book Resume:

What is a TWIDDER? It is a phenomenon known by many names: Time-Slips, Time-Warp or Temporal Displacements, Time Jumps, Time Travel, Time Fabric Ruptures, Time Ribbons-or Strings-or Yarn, Time Storms, Time Slippages, Time Tears, Alternate Realities, Dimensional Leap-Frogging, etc. The author lumps them all under the acronym TWIDDERS (a jumble of “time/warp/displacement” with a pinch of “slip” thrown in). By its spontaneous nature, a time-slip, or TWIDDER, is differentiated from someday-through-human-engineered-means time travel! Wrapping our brains around much of the theory that may one day explain how TWIDDERS can occur is a mind-boggling proposition. It all begins with REALLY BIG THINGS and REALLY SMALL THINGS. And the physics that deal with each.So, if we do indeed live in just one of multiple universes, and time is an illusion, and if in one of these realities Elvis never died, and if wormholes assemble and dissemble randomly throughout our existence and can transport us either to an alternate there or other Now, and if the atoms that make up our being are perfectly happy to participate in said travel, then might we unwittingly be part players in a moment from history and/or visitors to non-congruent locations? And if we can go there and back again, have others from elsewhere come unwittingly for brief visits to our universe?

Sworn in Steel by Douglas Hulick Book Resume:

DANGEROUS DAYS It’s been three months since Drothe killed a legend, burned down a portion of the imperial capital, and found himself unexpectedly elevated into the ranks of the criminal elite. As the newest Gray Prince in the underworld, he’s not only gained friends, but also rivals—and some of them aren’t bothered by his newfound title. A prince’s blood, as the saying goes, flows just as red as a beggar’s. So when another Gray Prince is murdered and all signs point to Drothe as the hand behind the knife, he knows it’s his blood that’s in danger of being spilled. As former allies turn their backs and dark rumors begin to circulate, Drothe is approached by a man who says he can make everything right again. All he wants in exchange is a single favor. Now Drothe finds himself traveling to the Despotate of Djan, the empire’s long-standing enemy, to search for the friend he betrayed—and the only person who can get him out of this mess. But the grains of sand are running out fast, and even if Drothe can find his friend, he may not be able to persuade him to help in time...

Night of Knives by Ian C. Esslemont Book Resume:

Drawing on events touched on in the prologue of Steven Erikson's landmark fantasy Gardens of the Moon: A Malazan Book of the Fallen, Night of Knives is the first in Ian C. Esslemont's Novels of the Malazn Empire series--a momentous chapter in the unfolding story of the extraordinarily imagined world of Malaz. The small island of Malaz and its city gave the great empire its name, but now it is little more than a sleepy, backwater port. Tonight, however, things are different. Tonight the city is on edge, a hive of hurried, sometimes violent activity; its citizens bustle about, barring doors, shuttering windows, avoiding any stranger's stare. Because tonight there is to be a convergence, the once-in-a-generation appearance of a Shadow Moon--an occasion that threatens the good people of Malaz with demon hounds and other, darker things... It was also prophesied that this night would witness the return of Emperor Kellanved, and there are those prepared to do anything to prevent this happening. As factions within the greater Empire draw up battle lines over the imperial throne, the Shadow Moon summons a far more ancient and potent presence for an all-out assault upon the island. Witnessing these cataclysmic events are Kiska, a young girl who yearns to flee the constraints of the city, and Temper, a grizzled, battle-weary veteran who seeks simply to escape his past. Each is to play a part in a conflict that will not only determine the fate of Malaz City, but also of the world beyond...

JESSE PULLMEN lived a quiet life with his adopted father, Councilor Elegan Pullmen, in the hidden oceanic city of Aquaterra. Along with his friend Helbit Massic, Jesse spent his days exploring the hidden city while dreaming of life in the world above. The people of Aquaterra had been banished beneath the sea by the fierce Restil race hundreds of years before, during an invasion that also destroyed the ancient protectors of their world, the Roras. Little did Jesse suspect that a chance meeting with a young woman named Jenn Verecy would start a chain of events that would reveal his own Rora heritage and drastically alter the fate of Aquaterra. For Jenn was the keeper of a mighty Prophecy that could free the people of Aquaterra from their ancient prison, and provide its heroes with the necessary steps to repel their enemies. Now Jesse must find a way to protect Jenn even as he begins training under the watchful eyes of a mysterious Rora named Therin. But even as Jesse’s strength grows, powerful beings are on the move, aware of the Prophecy and desperate to claim it for their own purposes. It will take all of Jesse’s newfound abilities to deliver this Prophecy to its intended recipient and finally begin the journey beyond the dome of Aquaterra to face the enemy above. Collected here is the complete tale of Jesse, Helbit, Jenn and their desperate quest through Aquaterra and beyond. A mission to free their people from the tyrannical grip of the Restils, and restore their world to its rightful inhabitants.

Blindly by Claudio Magris Book Resume:

Hailed as a masterpiece upon its initial publication in Italy, Blindly is a novel of highly original, poetic intensity, a Jacob's Ladder reversed to descend into the nether regions of history and, in particular, of the twentieth century. In a shifting, choral monologue—part confession, part psychiatric session—a man recounts (invents, falsifies, hides, screams out) his life, which has passed through the horrors, the hopes and betrayals, and the revolutions of the last century, as well as through widely different lands and seas. Who is the mysterious narrator of Blindly? He is clearly a detainee and a fugitive. He is Jorgen Jorgenson, the nineteenth-century adventurer who was briefly king of Iceland and later condemned to forced labour in the antipodes. But he is also Comrade Cippico, militant Italian communist, imprisoned for years in Tito's gulag on the “naked island” of Goli Otok. And he is all the partisans, prisoners, seamen, and rebels who experience the perils and injustices of persecution, war, violence, and adventure.

Beyond Homer by Benjamin W. Farley Book Resume:

It is 1970, the year of Marc Chagall's famous art exhibit in Paris. Clayton Rogers Clarke, a Virginian, has chosen the city as his place of residence while pursuing research during his first sabbatical. His philosophical interests, however, suffer sudden distraction from an unanticipated competitor: Monique Gibert, a writer for a French daily, for whom her husband (Jacques-Maria) is the senior journalist. Flirtatious quips and nods soon lead to a passionate affair. While dividing his time between Monique and his studies, he meets a fellow PhD, also on sabbatical. Professor Carl Sullivan's field is the Classics, and it is his conviction that humankind has scarcely progressed beyond Homer. Clayton is determined to prove him wrong. Scores of delightful characters in Clarke's pension add intrigue and verve to the story. Wander with Clayton and Monique as they make their way into each other's hearts, while traversing the city's cafŽs and parks that Paris alone affords lovers. And ponder with the young philosopher the age-old question of the human condition. Students of the Classics, of the Humanities and French literature, as well as philosophy, will find the author's synopses of Rousseau and Pascal, and of Homer's gods and heroes, of immense help, along with his translations of Goethe, Rilke, and Baudelaire's poems.

Hours later, the calm night is shattered by a devastating explosion. The King's body is found in a field with a cloak, a chair, a slipper and a dagger by his lifeless corpse. When stolen letters cast suspicion on the queen herself, she is accused of murder.

Only the shadowy scholar Nicholas Segalla can uncover the truth.

The Stolen Life of a Cheerful Man by Dimitris Politis Book Resume:

The Stolen Life of a Cheerful Man explores the contentious yet universal themes of intolerance and understanding, discrimination and acceptance, violence and forgiveness. Dimitris Politis plunges boldly into the reality of contemporary Ireland, but from his own Greek perspective, creating an extraordinary mirror between the two countries, where glittering Aegean waves are crowned by Atlanic rainbows. The reader is drawn into the story through its exciting twists and turns, interlinked throughout by a fast cinematographic pace. An excellent contemporary example of black fiction with a subtle and delicate deepening of sentiments, feelings, and beliefs rooted in human nature, the novel voices a loud protest against social and historical stereotypes and is a stern warning of how intolerance and ignorance can lead to disaster. In today’s world, where countless countries are mired in financial crisis and where many forget the importance of tolerance and acceptance of their fellow human begins, the author cleverly reminds us that difference and diversity are universally present, shaping our world. This unique novel prompts us to remember that we are all born different and grow up differently, making each of us special in our own way, whatever our circumstances.
