POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE Carrie Fisher is "one of our most painfully hilarious correspondents from the edge of sanity," said Vanity Fair about the author of this classic novel of men, drugs and alcohol, heartbreak and recovery...Hollywood-style. As timely today as when it was first published, Postcards from the Edge is "a wickedly shrewd black-humor riff on the horrors of rehab and the hollows of Hollywood life" (People) -- a witty, vivid, and all-too-revealing look at the dangers and delights of our addictions.

Hailed as a classic of speculative fiction, Marge Piercy’s landmark novel is a transformative vision of two futures—and what it takes to will one or the other into reality. Harrowing and prescient, Woman on the Edge of Time speaks to a new generation on whom these choices weigh more heavily than ever before. Connie Ramos is a Mexican American woman living on the streets of New York. Once ambitious and proud, she has lost her child, her husband, her dignity—and now they want to take her sanity. After being unjustly committed to a mental institution, Connie is contacted by an envoy from the year 2137, who shows her a time of sexual and racial equality, environmental purity, and unprecedented self-actualization. But Connie also bears witness to another potential outcome: a society of grotesque exploitation in which the barrier between person and commodity has finally been eroded. One will become our world. And Connie herself may strike the decisive blow. Praise for Woman on the Edge of Time “This is one of those rare novels that leave us different people at the end than we were at the beginning. Whether you are reading Marge Piercy’s great work again or for the first time, it will remind you that we are creating the future with every choice we make.”—Gloria Steinem “An ambitious, unusual novel about the possibilities for moral courage in contemporary society.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “A stunning, even astonishing novel . . . marvelous and compelling.”—Publishers Weekly “Connie Ramos’s world is cuttingly real.”—Newsweek “Absorbing and exciting.”—The New York Times Book Review From the Trade Paperback edition.

Science fiction stories from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Spartacus. From one of the most prolific and versatile writers of the twentieth century, The Edge of Tomorrow is a collection of tales that journey outside everyday boundaries to offer insight into our own universe. Featuring big bugs, cloned cats, and feral star-children, these unconventional, thought-provoking stories reveal much about the America of their time, when the Cold War and the nascent civil rights movement stoked unconscious fears and desires. From “The First Men,” about scientists tampering with genetic engineering, to “The Large Ant,” about a man’s thoughtless violence against nature, these stories by the author of April Morning and The Immigrants—described by the Los Angeles Times as “one of our very best”—are as relevant today as when they were first written. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.

"An evocative panorama of America...on the cusp of enormous change" (Newsday) by the National Book Award-winning author of Ship Fever. In the fall of 1916, America prepares for war—but in the community of Tamarack Lake, the focus is on the sick. Wealthy tubercular patients live in private cure cottages; charity patients, mainly immigrants, fill the large public sanatorium. Prisoners of routine, they take solace in gossip, rumor, and—sometimes—secret attachments. But when the well-meaning efforts of one enterprising patient lead to a tragic accident and a terrible betrayal, the war comes home, bringing with it a surge of anti-immigrant prejudice and vigilante sentiment. Reading group guide included.
