Nachdem Justin Collier das Hotel betreten hat, bemerkt er, wie ungeheuer scharf er heute ist. Er kann an nichts anderes mehr denken als an Sex. Aber er irrt sich - nicht er ist so geil, es ist das Haus ... Und als es Nacht wird, hallt durch die leeren Räume ein gieriges Flüstern, und Mädchen, die schon vor langer, langer Zeit starben, kichern unheilvoll ... Amazon.de: 'Lee testet bei dieser Geschichte in allen Belangen die Grenzen aus und zeigt, was »Kreatives Schreiben« bedeutet.' Horror Reader: 'Ein perverses Genie.' Der Verlag warnt ausdrücklich: Edward Lee ist der führende Autor des Extreme Horror. Seine Werke enthalten überzogene Darstellungen von sexueller Gewalt. Wer so etwas nicht mag, sollte die Finger davon lassen. Für Fans dagegen ist Edward Lee ein literarisches Genie. Er schreibt originell, verstörend und gewagt - seine Bücher sind ein echtes, aber schmutziges Erlebnis. Deutsche Erstausgabe. Broschur 19 x 12 cm, Umschlag in Lederoptik.

Das Comeback des Booker-Prize-Trägers Liebe und Tod, Logik und Wahnsinn im digitalen Zeitalter. Ariel Panek, Professor für Informatik an einer amerikanischen Elite-Uni soll auf einem Kongress in Amsterdam über Algorithmen sprechen. Er überredet seine Studentin und Geliebte Zeva ihn dort zu treffen, um ihrer Affäre ein paar unbeobachtete Tage zu gönnen. Sie reist über Brüssel an, er über London. Alles ist minutiös geplant. Doch dann wird Ariels Anschlussflug gestrichen und er von einem maulfaulen Taxifahrer ins abgelegene Hotel The Cliff gebracht. Kein Handyempfang, kein Kontakt zur Außenwelt und auch der Taxifahrer ist schon verschwunden. Während Zeva nervös auf seine Nachrichten wartet, gerät Ariel auf der Suche nach jemandem mit einem Handy mitten in das allzu menschliche Spiel des schrulligen Hotelbesitzers und seiner einzigen Gäste, eine neurotisch überdrehte Familie, die ›Borgias‹. Ariels Logik versagt und umso weiter der Abend voranschreitet, desto stärker geraten auf beiden Seiten des Ärmelkanals alle Gewissheiten ins Wanken. Der Booker-Prize-Träger DBC Pierre ist zurück. Mit großer Komik und auf der Höhe der Zeit erzählt er von Liebe im digitalen Zeitalter und der verlorenen Kunst, auf das zu vertrauen, was einen unmittelbar umgibt. »DBC Pierre ist einer der klügsten Köpfe der Gegenwartsliteratur.« Hot Press »Rasant erzählt, getragen von unnachahmlichen Figuren und mit einem Plot, der Agatha Christie all Ehre macht.« Mail on Sunday »Ein vollkommen moderner Alptraum.« The Times »Wenn es einen Autor gibt, der die gefährliche Ironie unserer Gegenwart, einfangen kann, dann ist es DBC Pierre.« Guardian »DBC Pierres Stil ist durchdacht, er erklimmt unglaubliche Höhen sprachlicher Schöpfung.« Independent

The Yorkshire-based publisher Bamforth & Co started producing 'saucy' postcards in 1910. These cheeky designs became synonymous with the English seaside resorts where they were sold, but were exported all over the world. After WW2, Bamforth artists began to satirise the classic comic archetypes that still resonate today - henpecked husbands, naughty nurses and randy milkmen. Contemporary concerns ranging from the contraceptive pill to the Space Race also received the irreverent Bamforth treatment. Saucy Postcards: The Bamforth Collection celebrates the golden age of these comic gems, with a selection of more than 250 cards originally published from the early 1950s to the mid-1970s. The book's introduction reveals the story behind the company, and the battles with the postcard censorship committees that resulted in almost 150 prosecutions.

Warum bebt die Erde? Wie entstanden Ebbe und Flut? Wie kam die Poesie in unsere Welt? Neil Gaiman erzählt die nordischen Sagen und Mythen neu, mit Witz und Sinnlichkeit, voller Zuneigung und Neugierde. Wir machen Bekanntschaft mit dem mächtigen Odin, reisen mit Thor und seinem Hammer durch die neun nordischen Welten, sind bezaubert von den Göttern und entsetzt von mancher Skrupellosigkeit. Machen Sie sich die Sagen zu eigen, erzählen Sie sie weiter, an den langen kalten Winterabenden, in den lauen Sommernächten. Nach der Lektüre werden Sie selbst die Wolken mit anderen Augen betrachten.
