This special boxed set includes the New York Times bestselling author N. K. Jemisin's complete, two-time Hugo award-winning Broken Earth Trilogy. This is the way the world ends. For the last time. A season of endings has begun. It starts with the great red rift across the heart of the world's sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun. It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter. It starts with betrayal, and long dormant wounds rising up to fester. This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.

THE STONE SKY - Part One, Guests, was written as the first pan of a trilogy. It takes place in the Wright Dry Valley, a snow free portion of Antarctica. Part Two, Visitors is being prepared now for publication. Part Three. The Prime Directive, may not be written. The characters developed in the first two parts may not logically or psychologically allow it. Part Three may be the last four chapters of Part Two. As a first time novelist this character driven plot was an unplanned but pleasant surprise. THE STONE SKY, with no surprise, takes place under ground in great caverns. It deals with the Antarctic capture of a man and woman from the temperate zone. With an architect's mind, the center of the book looks at how the captors could exist. With only available materials, and only those modern conveniences left by contemporary Guests, why do the captors feel they need at least one of these new Guests? THE STONE SKY is science and fiction. It is not Science Fiction. It is an adventure in Antarctic caverns, and the controlling potential of human minds. For the two from our world, it is an adventure in seeing how many of our problems of food, shelter, energy and avarice can be solved by other means. Some of J.B. Langley's architectural back ground was in designing structures to imprison miscreants. Some was to Chair a Budget Commission and see how expensive and ineffective jail and prison operation can be. Some was to research for an Ed D. Can there be other ways? THE STONE SKY starts with the attempted freeing from his personal prison of one of the temperate escapees, The end of Part One reveals the mysteries and ramifications of that escape. A novelist once said. "Never describe a riflehanging over the fire place unless you attend to shoot some one with it." Is this why there may never be a Part Three? THE STONE SKY will introduce you to an adventure with some exotic people living in an exotic place and solving every day problems with new human potential. It will keep you as it did the author guessing as to its rational outcome. Antarctica belongs to no one and to every one, including you. Do you enjoy challenge, adventure, mystery and romance? THE STONE SKY - Part Two, Visitors will be available shortly.

Upon its rooftops and amongst the shadows of its cobbled streets wait the Gatherers - the keepers of this peace.

But when a conspiracy blooms within Gujaareh's great temple, Ehiru - the most famous of the city's Gatherers - must question everything he knows. Someone, or something, is murdering innocent dreamers in the goddess' name, stalking its prey both in Gujaareh's alleys and the realm of dreams. Ehiru must now protect the woman he was sent to kill - or watch the city be devoured by war and forbidden magic.

This collection of essays discusses genre fiction and film within the discursive framework of the environmental humanities and analyses the convergent themes of spatiality, climate change, and related anxieties concerning the future of human affairs, as crucial for any understanding of current forms of “weird” and “fantastic” literature and culture. Given their focus on the culturally marginal, unknown, and “other,” these genres figure as diagnostic modes of storytelling, outlining the latent anxieties and social dynamics that define a culture’s “structure of feeling” at a given historical moment. The contributions in this volume map the long and continuous tradition of weird and fantastic fiction as a seismograph for eco-geographical turmoil from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century, offering innovative and insightful ecocritical readings of H. P. Lovecraft, Harriet Prescott Spofford, China Miéville, N. K. Jemisin, Thomas Ligotti, and Jeff VanderMeer, among others.

Unlike most cultures, the Japanese culture has preserved its native myths as a connected system, and as a system Japanese myths have much to say about the human condition in the cosmos. The series, Mythological Essays by Prof. Metevelis explores what this myth system seeks to tell us. Volume One, Mythical Stone, focuses on how the substance of stone works in the genesis and structure of the cosmos, and how it relates to establishing the human condition. The volume also delves into how stone came to possess its mythical qualities. The series of essays took twenty years and long residence in Japan to research. It treats Japanese myths in the context of world mythology, and is interdisciplinary, oriented toward mythologists, historical folklorists, historians of religion, archaeoastronomers, Japanologists, and anyone interested in East Asian culture or history.

The brilliant first novel in the legendary gothic fantasy trilogy As the first novel opens, Titus, heir to Lord Sepulchrave, has just been born: he stands to inherit the miles of rambling stone and mortar that stand for Gormenghast Castle. Inside, all events are predetermined by a complex ritual, lost in history, understood only by Sourdust, Lord of the Library. There are tears and strange laughter; fierce births and deaths beneath umbrageous ceilings; dreams and violence and disenchantment contained within a labyrinth of stone. As the ruling family grows, deep in the cavernous kitchens the ambitious scullery boy Steerpike plots his ascent, determined to subvert the archaic order and bring revolution to the ancient stasis of Gormenghast.
