    The Democracy of Objects
    (MPublishing, 2011, 2011) Bryant, Levi
    El efecto del método empírico en la metafísica es grave y persistente para el tratamiento de las mentes finitas como uno de las muchas formas de la existencia finita, que no tienen privilegio por encima ellos, excepto tal como se deriva de su mayor perfección y el desarrollo. En caso de probar que la investigación cognitiva relación es única, por improbable tal resultado podría parecer, tendría que ser aceptado fielmente y armonizado con el resto del sistema. Pero a primera vista existe hay justificación para el supuesto, aún menos para el dogma que, como toda experiencia implica una mente, aquello que se experimenta debe su ser y sus cualidades para la mente. Las mentes son sino los miembros más talentosos conocido por nosotros en una democracia de las cosas. Con respecto a ser o realidad todo existencias se encuentran en pie de igualdad. Varían en eminencia; como en una democracia, donde el talento tiene una carrera abierta, más lugar dotado a la influencia y autoridad.

    Magic for beginners
    (Northhampton, MA : Small Beer Press, 2005., 2005) Link, Kelly; Jackson, Shelley
    A new Fountains of Wayne album, a new Wes Anderson movie, a new short story collection by Kelly Link—and once more, for a little while, the world is worth saving. Kelly Link owns the most darkly playful voice in American fiction since Donald Barthelme. She is pushing the American short story into places that it hasn’t yet been pushed, while some-how managing to maintain a powerful connection to traditional forms and storytelling values. —Michael Chabon, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay

    The ant king and other stories
    (Easthampton, MA : Small Beer Press, 2008., 2008) Rosenbaum, Benjamin
    A dazzling, postmodern debut collection of pulp and surreal fictions: a writer of alternate histories defends his patron’s zeppelin against assassins and pirates; a woman transforms into hundreds of gumballs; an emancipated children’s collective goes house hunting. “Rosenbaum proves he’s capable of sustained fantasy with “Biographical Notes,” a steampunkish alternate history of aerial piracy, and “A Siege of Cranes,” a fantasy about a battle between a human insurgent and the White Witch that carries decidedly modern undercurrents…. Perhaps none of the tales is odder than “Orphans,” in which girl-meets-elephant, girl-loses-elephant.” —Kirkus Reviews

    (Easthampton : Small Beer Press, 2005., 2005) Link, Kelly
    Award-winning author Kelly Link’s debut collection takes fairy tales and cautionary tales, dictators and extraterrestrials, amnesiacs and honeymooners, revenants and readers alike, on a voyage into new, strange, and wonderful territory. The girl detective must go to the underworld to solve the case of the tap-dancing bank robbers. A librarian falls in love with a girl whose father collects artificial noses.

A newly married couple become participants in an apocalyptic beauty pageant. Sexy blond aliens invade New York City. A young girl learns how to make herself disappear. These eleven extraordinary stories are quirky, spooky, and smart. They all have happy endings. Every story contains a secret prize. Each story was written especially for you.

    The Baum plan for financial independence and other stories
    (Easthampton, MA : Small Beer Press, 2008., 2008) Kessel, John
    An ex-con finds himself falling, once more, under a seductive, amoral woman's spell. A hidden door in a summer house leads to a land of plenty. An inventor's life converges with the pulp fiction he reads. In "Pride of Prometheus," the Bennet sisters encounter Dr. Frankestein and his monster. And, in his acclaimed and award-winning Lunar Quartet, Kessel explores the gender dynamics, politics, and long-term sustainability of a matriachal lunar colony. This astonishing collection ranges from science fiction to the uncanny to the surreal while intersecting with Frank L. Baum's Oz and the characters of Flannery O'Connor, Mary Shelley, and Jane Austen. By turns satirical, horrific, funny, and generous, these stories showcase the manifold gifts of a modern-day master.
