Description:
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, New York, 2008. First edition. Condition: Near fine in near fine dust jacket. Very light edge wear on dust jacket. Translated by Margaret Jull Costa..From the publisher: On the first day of the new year, no one dies. This, of course, causes consternation among politicians, religious leaders, morticians, and doctors. Among the general public, on the other hand, there is initially a mass celebration. Flags are hung out on balconies; people dance in the streets. They have achieved the great goal of humanity: eternal life. Then reality hits home families are left to care for the permanently dying; life-insurance policies become meaningless; and funeral parlors are reduced to arranging burials for pet dogs, cats, hamsters, and parrots.Death sits in her chilly apartment, where she lives alone with scythe and filing cabinets and contemplates her experiment: What if no one ever died again? What if she, death with a small "d," became human and were to fall in love?

Description:
Condition: Fine in near fine dust jacket. Signed, limited, and numbered edition; number 426 of 500. From the publisher: Black Hills is an important and revelatory novel, the most singular accomplishment to date by the always unpredictable Dan Simmons. With empathy and great narrative power, it illuminates a significant chapter in the nation s history, and takes us deep into the heart of an extraordinary American life. The story begins at the Battle of Little Big Horn in June of 1876. Eleven-year-old Paha Sapa (whose name, in the Lakota dialect, means Black Hills ), is present at the precise moment of Custer s death, a moment that will have enormous ramifications. The narrative that follows encompasses eighty years of highly charged history and ranges from the eponymous (and sacred) Black Hills of South Dakota to the Dust Bowls of the Great Depression to the emerging face of Mount Rushmore, where an astonishing revelation awaits. On one level, Black Hills is a story of profound and inescapable loss: of… Read more
