It began shortly after the party at which one of their members, Edward Wanderley, had died - or was killed. The Chowder Society, who for years had met in customary evening dress with the object of telling each other tales of every kind, now found themselves drawn towards the supernatural. It was some sort of solace for Edward's loss. They began to tell ghost stories, extraordinary ghost stories ... ghost stories that did not always stop when the teller finished speaking ... Then came the dreams, shared simultaneously by the Chowder Society members, forecasting horrors the four ageing men can scarcely bring themselves to discuss. And now they are about to learn what happens to those who believe they can bury the past - and get away with murder.

A strange assortment of humans and otherworldly beings joins a young soldier of God on his perilous quest through an alternate, technology-free reality ruled by an all-powerful Evil In an alternate world where the Dark Ages never ended, “the Evil” that arises every five hundred years has prevented all manner of technological advancement, even well into the twentieth century. The son of a powerful English noble, young Duncan Standish has always longed to be a soldier of the Lord, and now he’s been offered a rare opportunity to fulfill his dream. Entrusted with the delivery of an ancient manuscript—purported to be irrefutable evidence of the existence of Jesus Christ—to a noted Oxenford scholar, Duncan must journey many perilous miles in the company of a motley group of fellow travelers, including a goblin, a ghost, and other magical and non-magical companions. But the road they traverse together is fraught with terrible trials that would test even the most devout, for the Evil is strong in this place of dark wonders. Multiple Hugo, Nebula, and Locus Award–winner and SFWA Grand Master Clifford D. Simak moves easily from science fiction to quest fantasy in this enthralling tale of magic, peril, and discovery on an Earth that never was. Rich in color, thrills, and wild invention, and populated by a highly original and unforgettable cast of characters, Fellowship of the Talisman showcases the author’s peerless storytelling skills, demonstrating once again that the great Simak had few equals in the realm of twentieth-century speculative fiction.

The Talisman Cock!, debut novel from award winning poet and short fiction writer Henry Joseph Russell, follows sixteen-year-old David Smith, a talented cross country runner from Cape Cod who believes he's living his "Personal Destiny" when he earns a scholarship to a prestigious boarding school near Boston. Alas, David's new roommate, a notoriously womanizing and wildly confident ice hockey prodigy named Johnny Connolly, doesn't believe in Destiny. A sort of metaphysical libertarian (and libertine!), Johnny claims "Jesus powers" of meditation and visualization have helped him fashion his "perfect reality," a life defined by countless one-night-stands, lofty athletic glory, and his most cherished "creation: " a rather large male organ he's lovingly named his "Talisman Cock!" But, when David becomes a hesitant disciple to Johnny's bizarre teachings, he unveils a stranger secret hidden behind his roommate's spiritual bravado: a Greater Destiny they both share. The Talisman Cock! is a modern, coming-of-age classic for young adults and adults alike. Tackling dynamic theological and philosophical issues with humor, eloquence and grace, Russell has penned an American, boarding-school yarn worthy of the pantheon beside A Separate Peace and The Catcher in the Rye.
