Kelly Link könyvei a rukkolán


Kelly Link - Különb ​dolgok is
A ​kötet tizenegy története mind furcsa, hátborzongató és szellemes. Mindegyiknek jó a vége. Majdnem. Mindegyik novella jutalmat rejt. Mindegyik történetet kifejezetten Neked írták. Kelly Link írásaiban eredeti módon keverednek a misztikum, a horror, a tündérmesék világának elemei, a lélektani regények hangulata és a bűnügyi történetek jellegzetességei. S noha az írónő alig pár éve robbant be az irodalmi életbe, műveivel már a műfaj elképzelhető összes rangos irodalmi díját elnyerte: pusztán a jelen kötetünkben is olvasható novellái révén magáénak tudhatja a Nebula-, Tiptree- és World Fantasy-díjakat.

Kelly Link - Get ​in Trouble
Fantastic, ​fantastical and utterly incomparable, Kelly Link's new collection explores everything from the essence of ghosts to the nature of love. And hurricanes, astronauts, evil twins, bootleggers, Ouija boards, iguanas, The Wizard of Oz, superheroes, the pyramids...With each story she weaves, Link takes readers deep into an unforgettable, brilliantly constructed universe. Strange, dark and wry, Get in Trouble reveals Kelly Link at the height of her creative powers and stretches the boundaries of what fiction can do.

Kelly Link - Pretty ​Monsters
Kelly ​Link has lit up adult literary publishing - and Viking is honored to publish her first YA story collection. Through the lens of Link's vivid imagination, nothing is what it seems, and everything deserves a second look. From the multiple award-winning 'The Faery Handbag,' in which a teenager's grandmother carries an entire village (or is it a man-eating dog?) in her handbag, to the near-future of 'The Surfer,' whose narrator (a soccer-playing skeptic) waits with a planeload of refugees for the aliens to arrive, Link's stories are funny and full of unexpected insights and skewed perspectives on the world. Her fans range from Michael Chabon to Peter Buck of R.E.M. to Holly Black of Spiderwick Chronicles fame. Now teens can have their world rocked, too!

Cassandra Clare - Sarah Rees Brennan - Maureen Johnson - Kelly Link - Robin Wasserman - Fantasmi ​del mercato delle ombre
Il ​Mercato delle Ombre è un luogo speciale, dove si possono incontrare fate, licantropi, stregoni e vampiri. Un luogo dove si vendono oggetti magici, si stringono patti oscuri e si sussurrano segreti che nessuno deve conoscere. Tra tutte le creature che qui si muovono, ce n'è una in particolare che, nell'arco di due secoli, lo ha visitato spesso. Si tratta di Fratello Zaccaria, che, come Fratello Silente, è il custode della legge e delle leggende dei Nephilim, ma che un tempo è stato uno Shadowhunter chiamato Jem Carstairs, e come tale ha vissuto un amore grande, quello per la strega Tessa Gray, l'unica donna della sua vita - di allora e per sempre. Seguendolo tra le pieghe di questo luogo magico, incontreremo insieme a lui personaggi iconici dell'universo Shadowhunters: da Anna Lightwood, alle prese con una storia d'amore impossibile, a Matthew Fairchild, consumato dal senso di colpa per le conseguenze irrimediabili di una sua azione, a Tessa Gray, costretta a operare sotto i bombardamenti nella città in cui vive. Il Mercato delle Ombre è un luogo spaventoso e affascinante al tempo stesso, dove ci si può nascondere facilmente, ma dove, se hai rinunciato al tuo cuore, nessuno può salvarti, nemmeno Fratello Zaccaria.

Kelly Link - Stranger ​Things Happen
"An ​alchemical mix of Borges, Raymond Chandler and Buffy the Vampire Slayer."--Salon.com (Best of the Year) "A delightful collection."--Cleveland Plain Dealer "My favorite fantasy writer."--Alan Cheuse, All Things Considered "Link's stories defy explanation, or at least, brief summary, instead working on the plane between dream and cognitive dissonance. They are true to themselves: witty, beautiful, funny, and startling."--Rain Taxi"Link uses the nonsensical to illuminate truth, blurring the distinctions between the mundane and the fantastic to tease out the underlying meanings of modern life."--Booklist "The 11 fantasies in this first collection from rising star Link are so quirky and exuberantly imagined that one is easily distracted from their surprisingly serious underpinnings of private pain and emotional estrangement."--Publishers Weekly Kelly Link's collection of stories, Stranger Things Happen, really scores.--Daniel Mendelsohn, New York Magazine"A tremendously appealing book, and lovers of short fiction should fall over themselves getting out the door to find a copy."--Washington Post Book World"Stylistic pyrotechnics light up a bizarre but emotionally truthful landscape. Link's a writer to watch."--Kirkus Reviews"A set of stories that are by turns dazzling, funny, scary, and sexy, but only when they're not all of these at once. Kelly Link has strangeness, charm and spin to spare. Writers better than this don't happen."--Karen Joy Fowler"Kelly Link is probably the best short story writer currently out there, in any genre or none. She puts one word after another and makes real magic with them-funny, moving, tender, brave and dangerous. She is unique, and should be declared a national treasure, and possibly surrounded at all times by a cordon of armed marines."--Neil Gaiman"Kelly Link is the exact best and strangest and funniest short story writer on earth that you have never heard of at the exact moment you are reading these words and making them slightly inexact. Now pay for the book."--Jonathan Lethem The eleven stories in Kelly Link's debut collection are funny, spooky, and smart. They all have happy endings. They were all especially written for you. A Best of the Year pick from Salon.com, Locus, The Village Voice, and San Francisco Chronicle. Includes Nebula, World Fantasy, and Tiptree award-winning stories. Kelly Link is the author of three collections of short fiction Stranger Things Happen, Magic for Beginners, and Pretty Monsters. Her short stories have won three Nebula, a Hugo, and a World Fantasy Award. She was born in Miami, Florida, and once won a free trip around the world by answering the question "Why do you want to go through the world?" ("Because you can't go through it.") Link lives in Northampton, Massachusetts, where she and her husband, Gavin J. Grant, run Small Beer Press, co-edit the fantasy half of The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, and play ping-pong. In 1996 they startd the occasional zine Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet.

Kelly Link - Magic ​for Beginners
The ​nine stories in Link's second collection are the spitting image of those in her acclaimed debut, Stranger Things Happen: effervescent blends of quirky humor and pathos that transform stock themes of genre fiction into the stuff of delicate lyrical fantasy. In "Stone Animals," a house's haunting takes the unusual form of hordes of rabbits that camp out nightly on the front lawn. This proves just one of several benign but inexplicable phenomena that begin to pull apart the family newly moved into the house as surely as a more sinister supernatural influence might. The title story beautifully captures the unpredictable potential of teenage lives through its account of a group of adolescent schoolfriends whose experiences subtly parallel events in a surreal TV fantasy series. Zombies serve as the focus for a young man's anxieties about his future in "Some Zombie Contingency Plans" and offer suggestive counterpoint to the lives of two convenience store clerks who serve them in "The Hortlak." Not only does Link find fresh perspectives from which to explore familiar premises, she also forges ingenious connections between disparate images and narrative approaches to suggest a convincing alternate logic that shapes the worlds of her highly original fantasies.

Cassandra Clare - Maureen Johnson - Robin Wasserman - Sarah Rees Brennan - Kelly Link - Az ​árnypiac kísértetei
Az ​árnypiac tündérek, vérfarkasok, boszorkánymesterek és vámpírok találkozóhelye. Az alvilágiak mágikus tárgyakat adnak-vesznek, sötét üzleteket kötnek, és a nephilimek elől gondosan rejtegetett titkokat rebesgetnek. Két évszázadon át rendszeresen megfordult itt más is – egy vendég a Csontvárosból, az árnyvadászok világának szívéből. Néma testvérként Zakariás a nephilimek törvényeire megtartására esküdött fel. Valaha azonban Jem Carstairs néven árnyvadász volt, örök szerelme pedig egy boszorkánymester, Tessa Gray. Jem az évek hosszú során számos város árnypiacán keres egy relikviát a múltból. Kövesd Jemet, és miközben az eseményekhez az árnypiacokon zajló sötét ügyletek szolgáltatják a hátteret, olvashatsz Anna Lightwood kudarcra ítélt szerelméről, Matthew Fairchild nagy bűnéről és Tessa Gray tetteiről a világháborúban. Valentine Morgenstern vásárol egy lelket a piacon, az ifjú Jace Wayland pedig szerető otthonra lel. Valahol, valamelyik piacon lapul egy elveszett örökös, de találkozhatunk egy hőn szeretett kísérlettel is, és kiderül, hogy senki nem mentheti már meg azt, aki eladta a szívét. Még Zakariás testvér sem. Mélyedj el a Árnyvadász Akadámiában megismert szereplők személyes történetében!
