• Dark net

    Benjamin Percy


    Fermez toutes vos fenêtres !
    Sous les fondations du réseau, un second Internet palpite : un eldorado sulfureux où rien n'est interdit et où tout - drogues, armes à feu, instructions terroristes - peut être trouvé. Son nom ? Le Dark Net. Mais aujourd'hui, en ces profondeurs, des forces obscures se rassemblent. Des démons, qui projettent de " hacker " les esprits des utilisateurs et de les transformer en tueurs psychotiques.
    Pour leur faire face, quatre héros malgré eux, que rien ne destinait à se rencontrer : Hannah, une jeune aveugle de 12 ans ayant récemment recouvré la vue (mais pas seulement) grâce à une prothèse futuriste ; Mike Juniper, un ancien évangéliste au trouble passé qui veille, dans son refuge pour sans-abri, sur un ahurissant arsenal d'armes à feu ; Sarin, sa vieille amie quasi immortelle, engagée dans un combat sans pitié contre les ténèbres ; et Lela, une journaliste technophobe, persuadée d'être tombée sur une histoire que personne ne veut couvrir.
    À Portland, Oregon, les portes de l'enfer sont sur le point de s'ouvrir. Hannah et les autres sont-ils prêts ?

  • 'The stories in Refresh, Refresh are big-hearted and drunk and dangerous, and there's a heightened, unnerving vibe as you travel through Percy's world. You never know where you will end up ... but you can be sure that he'll actually take you somewhere.'
    Dan Chaon Here is the United States of today. The young men and boys in this bold, fiery collection do the unthinkable to prove to themselves - to everyone - that they are strong enough to face the heartbreak in this world. The war in Iraq empties the small town of Tumalo, Oregon of fathers, leaving their sons to fight among themselves. There is a bear on the loose, a house with a basement that opens up into a cave and a nuclear meltdown that renders the Pacific Northwest into a contemporary Wild West. 'Benjamin Percy moves instinctively toward the molten center of contemporary writing, the place where genre fiction ... overflows its boundaries and becomes something dark and grand and percipient. These stories contain a brutal power and are radiant with pain-only a writer of surpassing honesty and directness could lead us here.' Peter Straub

  • "Benjamin Percy is a force." -Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See
    RED MOON author Benjamin Percy's widely praised debut story collection, originally published by a university press, is now available for the first time as an ebook.
    This debut collection of stories, The Language of Elk, by the award-winning author of Red Moon, assembles its cast from the mountain towns and low life taverns and high desert ranches of Oregon--a state that in isolated pockets remains a still-unfinished place, the frontier.
    Here nature exists as a source of wonder and a force to be conquered. Here myths haunt the moss-laden woods and Benjamin Percy shines his light on them, revealing bearded ladies and Bigfoot and marijuana colonies and elk hunting ranches and haunted Indian burial sites, the underside of contemporary western America.
    With a salty mystical voice that partners the landscape and a vision as wild as his characters, Percy explores a world of surprising violence and gentleness, hilarity and heartbreak, loveliness and ugliness, and in doing so emerges as a beautifully raw voice of the West.
