Head On: A Novel of the Near Future
If you loved John Scalzi’s critically acclaimed New York Times bestselling Lock In, you’d dive with pleasure into this near-future chilling follow-up story that offers the thrills of a gritty cop procedural.
Hilketa is a frenetic and violent pastime where players attack each other with swords and hammers. The main goal of the game is to obtain opponent’s head and carry it through the goalposts.
All the players are robot-like bodies controlled by people with Haden’s Syndrome, so no one gets hurt.
Until a star athlete drops dead on the playing field.
A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership
James Comey served as director of the FBI from 2013 to 2017, appointed to the post by President Barack Obama.
In his forthcoming book, the former FBI director shares his never-before-told experiences from some of the highest-stakes situations of his career in the past two decades of American government.
From prosecuting the Mafia and Martha Stewart to overseeing the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation as well as ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, Comey has been involved in some of the most consequential policies of recent history.
Suicide of the West
With his trademark blend of political history, social science, economics, and pop culture, Jonah Goldberg describes in his new book how the rebirth of tribalism, populism, nationalism, and identity politics is destroying American democracy.
At a moment when authoritarianism, tribalism, identity politics, and cults of personality are rotting our democracy from within, Goldberg exposes the West’s suicidal tendencies on both sides of the ideological aisle.
Suicide is painless, liberty takes work.
Adjustment Day, the author’s first novel in four years, is an ingeniously comic work in which Palahniuk does what he does best: skewer the absurdities in our society.
Smug, geriatric politicians bring the nation to the brink of a third world war in an effort to control the burgeoning population of young males; working-class men dream of burying the elites; and professors propound theories that offer students only the bleakest future.
In this timely satire, the author of Fight Club takes America beyond our darkest dreams.
Mark your calendars. On May 22, one of Stephen King’s most unsettling and compulsively readable stories will be released.
An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens, Terry Maitland.
Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. The case seems ironclad.
Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.
