Benjamin Percy - Hurst
Stephen—an official who works for an entity known only as “the bureau”—arrives one night at the gates of Hurst to investigate a mysterious death. He is not welcome in this secluded, cult-like sanctuary, which long ago cut itself off from society. To get inside, he must enlist the help of a reluctant deputy, and together this odd couple probes a deepening mystery. The situation grows more and more perilous and Stephen must find what he is looking for before the residents of Hurst uncover the truth about him. Here is a story that defies the boundaries of genre—a Blade Runner-meets-Edgar Allan Poe thriller—and will keep you guessing until its startling conclusion. Benjamin Percy is the author of three novels--most recently, The Dead Lands (Grand Central/Hachette, 2015)--as well as two books of short stories. He writes the Green Arrow Series for DC Comics and is a contributing editor at Esquire magazine.

Benjamin Percy - The Language of Elk
In The Language of Elk, men and creatures stagger in a no man's land between wildness and domesticity, jealous, cracked, burning to be acknowledged. Like the flaming projectiles his protagonists often launch into the sky, these stories crackle with energy and violence and a furious beauty. Benjamin Percy is a force. -- Anthony Doerr
Benjamin Percy - Refresh, Refresh
The war in Iraq empties the small town of Tumalo, Oregon, of men—of fathers—leaving their sons to fight among themselves. But the boys’ bravado fades at home when, alone, they check e-mail again and again for word from their fathers at the front. Often from fractured homes and communities, the young men in these breathless stories do the unthinkable to prove to themselves—to everyone—that they are strong enough to face the heartbreak in this world. Set in rural Oregon with the shadow of the Cascade Mountains hanging over them, these stories bring you face-to-face with a mad bear, a house with a basement that opens up into a cave, a nuclear meltdown that renders the Pacific Northwest into a contemporary Wild West. Refresh, Refresh by Benjamin Percy is a bold, fiery, and unforgettable collection that deals with vital issues of our time.
Benjamin Percy - The Wilding
A powerful debut novel set in a threatened western landscape, from the award-winning author of Refresh, Refresh. Echo Canyon is a disappearing pocket of wilderness outside of Bend, Oregon, and the site of conflicting memories for Justin Caves and his father, Paul. It’s now slated for redevelopment as a golfing resort. When Paul suggests one last hunting trip, Justin accepts, hoping to get things right with his father this time, and agrees to bring his son, Graham, along. As the weekend unfolds, Justin is pushed to the limit by the reckless taunting of his father, the physical demands of the terrain, and the menacing evidence of the hovering presence of bear. All the while, he remembers the promise he made to his skeptical wife: to keep their son safe. Benjamin Percy, a writer whose work Dan Chaon called “bighearted and drunk and dangerous,” shows his mastery of narrative suspense as the novel builds to its surprising climax. The Wilding shines unexpected light on our shifting relationship with nature and family in contemporary society.
Benjamin Percy - Red Moon
They live among us. They are our neighbors, our mothers, our lovers. They change. When government agents kick down Claire Forrester's front door and murder her parents, Claire realizes just how different she is. Patrick Gamble was nothing special until the day he got on a plane and hours later stepped off it, the only passenger left alive, a hero. Chase Williams has sworn to protect the people of the United States from the menace in their midst, but he is becoming the very thing he has promised to destroy. So far, the threat has been controlled by laws and violence and drugs. But the night of the red moon is coming, when an unrecognizable world will emerge...and the battle for humanity will begin.
Benjamin Percy - The Dead Lands
In Benjamin Percy's new thriller, a post-apocalyptic reimagining of the Lewis and Clark saga, a super flu and nuclear fallout have made a husk of the world we know. A few humans carry on, living in outposts such as the Sanctuary-the remains of St. Louis-a shielded community that owes its survival to its militant defense and fear-mongering leaders. Then a rider comes from the wasteland beyond its walls. She reports on the outside world: west of the Cascades, rain falls, crops grow, civilization thrives. But there is danger too: the rising power of an army that pillages and enslaves every community they happen upon. Against the wishes of the Sanctuary, a small group sets out in secrecy. Led by Lewis Meriwether and Mina Clark, they hope to expand their infant nation, and to reunite the States. But the Sanctuary will not allow them to escape without a fight.
Benjamin Percy - Vörös hold
Patrick Gamble sosem gondolta magáról, hogy különleges, míg egy napon föl nem száll egy repülőgépre, ahonnan egyedül ő kerül ki élve. Claire Forrester akkor jön rá, mennyire más, mint a többiek, amikor a kormány emberei berúgják a ház ajtaját, és meggyilkolják a szüleit. Chase Williams, az amerikai Oregon kormányzója sem nagyon tér el az átlagtól. Kissé megalkuvó, részrehajló politikus, aki végül is arra esküdött fel, hogy védelmezi az Egyesült Államok lakosságát a köztük járó gonosztól, de egyszer csak szörnyű felismerésre ébred. A fenyegetés pedig rettenetes, és ott van testközelben. Eddig kordában tudta tartani a törvény, az erő és legfőképpen a gyógyszerek, de a megdöbbentő történet hősei már tudják, hogy bármikor elszabadulhat a pokol. Mert hamarosan eljön a vörös hold éjszakája, amikor egy felismerhetetlen világ születik, és megkezdődik az emberiségért vívott harc… Benjamin Percy, az Egyesült Államok-beli Oregonban élő fiatal író tehetségét számos irodalmi díj bizonyítja. A Vörös hold című regénye városi fantasy, természetfölötti thriller, szerelmi történet és társadalmi példázat. Tükröt tart elénk, hogy szembesüljünk félelmeinkkel és ösztönös énünkkel. Hamingway prózáját idéző, sajátos irodalmi horrortörténete több mint félelmetes…
