In its wake, valleys turned to deserts, fertile farms to dust, and the great migration East began. As the hordes of Droudies poured into the Midwest and Eastern United States and the last of the surface water seeped deep into the ground, anger over the millions of incoming refugees escalated. Finally, borders along the Rocky Mountains were sealed to Westerners and a meager aid strategy was conceived by the bankrupt government for the many millions abandoned to their dry fates out west.

Read the first three chapters from A Summer in the Twenties by Peter Dickinson:. From The Liminal People , by Ayize Jama-Everett. Nordeen was right to send me. As soon as I got out of the car their right eyes all zoomed in on something. Their boy, my date, Omar, wants what we have. His steady sub-Saharan heartbeat is the only answer I get from the pound menace.

Always does. From Second Line by Poppy Z. Surveying the class slumped in their desks, she could not blame them for their apathy. Though it was only April, the weather was already hinting at another brutal New Orleans summer. For public schools to be without air conditioning in was a disgrace, but such things were usual in this little corner of the United States that might be more properly called part of the Third World.

Reilly suddenly felt hopeless and decided to call on her one dependable student. Death was, after all, the way Henry made his living.

The books he sold were most often the recent property of people who had died. Book lovers never gave up the good ones without cause. But then, the books which people sold willingly were not the ones Henry really wanted. But not always. Like encounters with sin, Henry had occasions of luck at yard sales, though not often enough to waste a weekend which might better be spent at home reading.

His favorite haunts were the estate auctions, and the best of these were the ones held at the very house where the old geezer had kicked the bucket.

And there was always that thin network of friends who knew Henry was a bookman—who heard of book lots being sold and passed the word on. Albert, of course, had been a regular source for this, simply because his trash-removal business so often involved houses being sold where the books had accumulated over the years and the dead were recently departed.

William strides up and pretends to be the free driver to your hotel. Not only that but he organizes a second motorbike to wobble its way round the ruts with your suitcases.

A great photographer — someone like Diane Arbus, or me during that fraction of a second when I was great — she sees that moment coming, and presses the shutter release an instant before the change hits.

Maybe no one else knows it, but you do. In my case, it was no secret. Some people can make do in a situation like that.

When there's so many books to read, choosing your next one can be difficult. That's why we love reading and sharing free book excerpts—they're a great way to see if a book is the right fit for you, before you download the whole thing.

Below are just a handful of book excerpts we've shared. To see a full list of book excerpts on the site, click here.

By Elizabeth Keckley. Born into slavery in February , Elizabeth Hobbs Keckley was the daughter of her owner, Armistead Burwell, and his house slave, Agnes. Elizabeth Keckley began working as a nursemaid when she was four years old, and endured years of beatings and rape, the latter of which resulted in a pregnancy.

However, one part of her childhood would eventually save her: from her mother, Elizabeth Keckley had learned how to sew. Read the excerpt here.

At the beginning of Ways and Means , we learn that ambitious NYU student Alistair McCabe is on the For public schools to be without air conditioning in was a disgrace, but such things were usual in this little corner of the United States that might be more properly called part of the Third World.

Reilly suddenly felt hopeless and decided to call on her one dependable student. Death was, after all, the way Henry made his living. The books he sold were most often the recent property of people who had died.

Book lovers never gave up the good ones without cause. But then, the books which people sold willingly were not the ones Henry really wanted. But not always. Like encounters with sin, Henry had occasions of luck at yard sales, though not often enough to waste a weekend which might better be spent at home reading.

His favorite haunts were the estate auctions, and the best of these were the ones held at the very house where the old geezer had kicked the bucket. And there was always that thin network of friends who knew Henry was a bookman—who heard of book lots being sold and passed the word on.

One of the questions Damon and I returned to often was simply: can writing be taught? There are many writers who say emphatically that the answer is no. I see their point.

High school and college creative writing classes are too often a joke, taught by non-writers without a clue about the real world of publishing and what makes for a publishable story in contemporary markets.

For most writers struggling alone, the learning curve from the first attempt to write to becoming an accomplished writer is very long; years in many cases. Carol Emshwiller Carmen Dog.

Chapter 1: Outlandish Changes. There is more matter in the universe than we at first thought. There may be hundreds of these creatures already among us. No way to tell for sure how many.
