  • The Collected Stories of Benedict Kiely
    by Kiely, Benedict

    Among the best writers this company has published is Ireland's Benedict Kiely.
    His first book to be released in this country, The State of Ireland, received a
    front page New York Times Book Review notice in which Guy Davenport wrote, "The
    first meaning of 'the state of Ireland' is that it's a place where stories are
    still told, deliciously and by masters of the art, of whom Benedict Kiely is
    one, perhaps the foremost." This collection was followed by novels, story
    collections and a separate printing of what William Kennedy called "a small
    masterpiece," Proxopera, Kiely's moving and memorable anti-war fable (which,
    especially in these times, bears reading and re-reading). This treasure chest of
    a book, containing his complete short stories and novellas, spans forty years,
    and introduces another generation to one of the great prose stylists of our age,
    a man who possesses "a unique voice," and whose "technique is so good as to be
    invisible." For this edition we have included some sixteen stories never
    published before in the USA, a new introduction by the author, as well as his
    afterword to Proxopera. At almost 800 pages, this is the most extensive and
    ambitious work of fiction our small company has ever issued. Kiely is a member
    of a select club that includes Chekhov, Welty, Peter Taylor, and another author
    whose work we championed, Andre Dubus - all writers whose stories cut close to
    the bone and near to the heart.

    there is something evil and unexplainable behind it all? What if Mike and his
    son are also in danger? And as others mysteriously die in the small town, why
    are their graves being dug prior to each new death? As Mike soon discovers,

    by Naked Ape Staff

    R to L (Japanese Style) Kai Eto may look like a squeaky clean kid, but the
    Greater Kanto Narcotics Control Division's new investigator hides a violent
    alter ego and a dangerous past. With his stoic partner Hal Kurabayashi, Kai is
    assigned to track down and stop the distribution of Dragon Speed, a dangerous
    new drug. But Ryugen, the syndicate trafficking the drug, is almost impossible
    to infiltrate. Add street violence and a jurisdiction war with the Meguro
    Police, and poor Kai is in for some very long days at the office. Yusuke Shinoda
    is a freelance writer who just got out of the slammer on drug charges, but the
    NCD's going to keep tabs on him to see if he's really clean, and if not, to see
    what he'll lead them to. As always, the truth in this drug-fueled intrigue won't
    be pretty.

  • The Power-House
    by Buchan, John

    Originally published in 1916, this early works is a fascinating novel of the
    period and still an interesting read today. Many of the earliest books,
    particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely
    scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in
    affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
