Years ago, when House of Leaves was first being passed around, it was nothing more than a badly bundled heap of paper, parts of which would occasionally surface on the Internet. No one could have anticipated the small but devoted following this terrifying story would soon command. Starting with an odd assortment of marginalized youth -- musicians, tattoo artists, programmers, strippers, environmentalists, and adrenaline junkies -- the book eventually made its way into the hands of older generations, who not only found themselves in those strangely arranged pages but also discovered a way back into the lives of their estranged children. Now, for the first time, this astonishing novel is made available in book form, complete with the original colored words, vertical footnotes, and newly added second and third appendices. The story remains unchanged, focusing on a young family that moves into a small home on Ash Tree Lane where they discover something is terribly wrong: their house is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. Of course, neither Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Will Navidson nor his companion Karen Green was prepared to face the consequences of that impossibility, until the day their two little children wandered off and their voices eerily began to return another story -- of creature darkness, of an ever-growing abyss behind a closet door, and of that unholy growl which soon enough would tear through their walls and consume all their dreams.

Ein ermordeter Mafi oso mit großem Herz und großer Klappe. Ein kleiner Gangster mit Tourette-Syndrom auf der Spur des Verbrechens. Messerscharfe Dialoge und grandioser Sprachwitz vor der Kulisse der Unterwelt Brooklyns. Das Waisenhaus St. Vincents in Brooklyn, frühe siebziger Jahre. Für Lionel Essrog, der am Tourette-Syndrom leidet, ist Frank Minna so etwas wie ein Erlöser. Der im ganzen Viertel beliebte Ganove taucht eines Tages auf und nimmt Lionel und drei weitere Jungs mit auf seine mysteriösen Streifzüge quer durch Brooklyn. Aus den vier Waisen werden so die Minna Men, die von Detektei bis Fahrdiensten alles anbieten. Ihre Tage und Nächte drehen sich um Frank, den Prinzen von Brooklyn, der mit großer Klappe durchs Leben eilt. Dann kommt die furchtbare Nacht, in der Frank niedergestochen wird und Lionel auf sich selbst gestellt ist. Auf der Suche nach Franks Mörder verstrickt er sich tiefer und tiefer in Brooklyns Unterwelt und die geheimen und unüberschaubaren Gesetze dieses Viertels, in dem niemand ist, was er zu sein scheint. »Eine geniale Mischung aus Spannung, Intelligenz und Kunstfertigkeit.« Die Zeit

Mark Z. Danielewski is routinely hailed as the most exciting author in contemporary American literature, and he is celebrated by critics and fans alike. Revolutionary Leaves collects essays that have come out of the first academic conference on Danielewski’s fiction that took place in Munich in 2011, which brought together younger and established scholars to discuss his works from a variety of perspectives. Addressing his major works House of Leaves (2000) and Only Revolutions (2006), the texts are as multifaceted as the novels they analyze, and they incorporate ideas of (post)structuralism, modernism, post- and post-postmodernism, philosophy, Marxism, reader-response criticism, mathematics and physics, politics, media studies, science fiction, gothic horror, poetic theory, history, architecture, mythology, and more. Contributors: Nathalie Aghoro, Ridvan Askin, Hanjo Berressem, Aleksandra Bida, Brianne Bilsky, Joe Bray, Alison Gibbons, Julius Greve, Sebastian Huber, Sascha Pöhlmann, and Hans-Peter Söder.

Ein Zukunftsthriller vom Autor der Bestseller »Krieg der Klone« und »Kollaps« Kennen Sie Hilketa? Bei dieser Sportart gehen die Spieler mit Schwertern und Hämmern aufeinander los. Das Hauptziel des Spiels: Erbeute den Kopf deines Gegners und befördere ihn durch die Torpfosten. Für gewöhnliche Menschen wäre ein solcher Sport unmöglich. Aber alle Spieler sind »Threeps«, roboterartige Körper, die ferngesteuert werden. Alles ist erlaubt. Bis ein Starathlet, der einen solchen Threep steuert, während eines Spiels zu Tode kommt. Ist es ein Unfall oder Mord? Die beiden FBI-Agenten Chris Shane und Leslie Vann werden zu Hilfe gerufen, um die Wahrheit aufzudecken. Bald verschlägt es sie auf die dunkle Seite des Erfolgssports Hilketa, bei dem Vermögen gemacht und verloren werden und bei dem Spieler wie Macher alles tun, um zu gewinnen – auf dem Feld und außerhalb. Ein in sich abgeschlossener Roman aus derselben Zukunftswelt wie »Das Syndrom«. »John Scalzi ist der unterhaltsamste und zugänglichste SF-Autor unserer Zeit.« Joe Hill

Literature and architecture are related in a complex way. In this volume, literary, and cultural critics along with art historians explore new perspectives in understanding 19th and 20th century texts and contexts. Architecture’s presence in literature and the aesthetic interdependency between the two arts illustrates the ways that “space” established itself in aesthetic theory and practice.

The Season One finale of this riveting multisensory masterpiece from the visionary author of House of Leaves. The Familiar Volume 1 Wherein the cat is found . . . The Familiar Volume 2 Wherein the cat is hungry . . . The Familiar Volume 3 Wherein the cat is blind . . . The Familiar Volume 4 Wherein the cat is toothless . . . The Familiar Volume 5 Wherein the cat is named . . . The astonishing series about a young girl who befriends a cat hunting humanity continues with Volume 5, and the Season One finale, in which the consequences of how we encounter one another come into poignant and terrifying relief—especially on one September night, when an unexpected phone call demanding the return of the little white cat challenges everything the Ibrahims hold dear. They are not alone. Jingjing must contend with a rival he could never have anticipated, while Xanther must relinquish all she thought she knew as a far greater responsibility is set before her. Light wavers and pomegranates reveal their price as the effects of a great transition start to reverberate around everyone, Shnorhk’s efforts to resume playing music cannot escape history’s ghosts. Cas, in upstate New York, comes face-to-face with her lifelong nemesis in a candlelit rendezvous that presages the international crisis soon to come. As more lines tangle, Özgür and Luther brawl with a future that may have chosen them long ago, and Isandòrno crosses a line that will force him over the border into a country he has until now steadfastly refused. All the while, a terrible power roaming the world continues to grow . . .

From Mark Z Danielewski, author of the cult bestseller House of Leaves, comes the astonishing Only Revolutions, a shoot-from-the-hip American road novel about Sam and Hailey - two wayward and wild kids who magically career across the American mainland and from the Civil Rights Movement to the Iraq War and beyond. Powered by an ever-evolving fleet of cars, these two teenagers never age and never stop. They crash parties in New Orleans, barrel up the Mississippi, and blast through the Badlands, cutting a nation in half as they try to outrace History itself. And where this journey takes them is what sets the pages, even the actual book, turning. Alternating between Hailey and Sam, this kaleidoscopic novel spins the strangest, most gripping and lyrical love story published in more than a generation.

Have we moved beyond postmodernism? Did postmodernism lose its oppositional value when it became a cultural dominant? While focusing on questions such as these, the articles in this collection consider the possibility that the death of a certain version of postmodernism marks a renewed attempt to re-negotiate and perhaps re-embrace many of the cultural, literary and theoretical assumptions that postmodernism seemly denied outright. Including contributions from some of the leading scholars in the field – N. Katherine Hayles, John D. Caputo, Paul Maltby, Jane Flax, among others – this collection ultimately comes together to perform a certain work of mourning. Through their explorations of this current epistemological shift in narrative and theoretical production, these articles work to “get over” postmodernism while simultaneously celebrating a certain postmodern inheritance, an inheritance that can offer us important avenues to understanding and affecting contemporary culture and society.
