Title: The Big Thirst

Comments:
You will never see a glass of water the same after indulging in Charles Fishman's beautiful and thought-provoking narrative on the nature of the most important liquid on earth. From it's ancient and mysterious origins to cutting edge infrastructure in one of the world's driest cities, Fishman elegantly explores mankind's complex and increasingly fraught relationship with water. As engaging as it is enlightening, "The Big Thirst" peels back the veil on a vital and oft invisible resource.

Title: The Fisherman

Comments:

Do not read the back of this book! You won’t want to spoil any of this powerfully imaginative and richly emotive tale. John Langan manages to extend the dramatic pacing and deep world building of his acclaimed short stories into this full length offering with a wonderfully genre bending effect. Originally rejected from several publishers for being either too literary or too genre this is a book equally perfect for fans of both literary realism and Lovecraftian horror. The Fisherman is a beautifully written, shockingly expansive epic meditation on loss, recovery, and the monsters deep grief can threaten to transform us into.
