Today, he’s a high school dropout with no future. Tomorrow, he’s a soldier in World War II. Kale Jackson has spent years trying to control his time-traveling ability but hasn't had much luck. One day he lives in 1945, fighting in the war as a sharpshooter and helplessly watching soldiers--friends--die. Then the next day, he’s back in the present, where WWII has bled into his modern life in the form of PTSD, straining his relationship with his father and the few friends he has left. Every day it becomes harder to hide his battle wounds, both physical and mental, from the past. When the ex-girl-next-door, Harper, moves back to town, thoughts of what could be if only he had a normal life begin to haunt him. Harper reminds him of the person he was before the PTSD, which helps anchor him to the present. With practice, maybe Kale could remain in the present permanently and never step foot on a battlefield again. Maybe he can have the normal life he craves. But then Harper finds Kale’s name in a historical article--and he’s listed as a casualty of the war. Is Kale’s death inevitable? Does this mean that, one of these days, when Kale travels to the past, he may not come back? Kale knows now that he must learn to control his time-traveling ability to save himself and his chance at a life with Harper. Otherwise, he’ll be killed in a time where he doesn’t belong by a bullet that was never meant for him.

По всем статьям, Гарри Поттер был весьма необычным ребёнком. Взять хотя бы то, что он ненавидел летние каникулы. Или то, что он искренне стремился выполнить каникулярные домашние задания, но был вынужден заниматься этим тайно, под покровом ночи. А ещё он был колдун. Уже почти наступила полночь, а Гарри, как тентом укрывшись с головой одеялом и держа в руке карманный фонарик, лежал на животе на кровати. Перед ним, подпёртая подушкой, стояла раскрытая книга в кожаной обложке («История магии» Батильды Жукпук). Гарри водил кончиком орлиного пера над страницей и, насупив брови, пытался выискать в книге что-нибудь, что помогло бы закончить сочинение на тему «Бессмысленность сожжения ведьм в четырнадцатом столетии — обсуждение». Перо зависло над подходящим параграфом. Гарри поправил на носу круглые очки, поднёс фонарик поближе к книге и прочитал: Не владеющие магией люди (более известные как муглы) в средние века особенно сильно боялись колдовства, однако не обладали даром распознавать оное. В тех редких случаях, когда им удавалось поймать настоящих ведьм или колдунов, сожжение не приносило ожидаемого результата. Колдун или ведьма в этом случае прибегали к базовому Пламезамораживающему Заклятию, а затем притворно вопили от боли, в действительности испытывая лишь легкую щекотку. Например, Везучка Венделин так любила жариться на костре, что позволяла отловить себя не менее сорока семи раз, разумеется, под разными обличьями. Гарри зажал перо зубами и полез под подушку за чернильницей и свитком пергамента. Медленно и очень осторожно он отвинтил крышечку, обмакнул перо в чернильницу и начал писать, постоянно останавливаясь и прислушиваясь — если бы кто-то из Дурслеев по пути в ванную услышал скрип пера, то Гарри, скорее всего, заперли бы в шкафу под лестницей до самого конца каникул. Из-за семейства Дурслеев, проживавшего в доме № 4 по Бирючиновой аллее, Гарри и ненавидел летние каникулы. Дядя Вернон, тётя Петуния и их сын Дудли были единственной оставшейся у Гарри родней. Они были муглы, и им было свойственно в высшей степени средневековое отношение к колдовству. О погибших родителях Гарри — а они как раз были колдун и ведьма — в стенах дома на Бирючиновой аллее упоминать не полагалось. Многие годы тётя Петуния и дядя Вернон пребывали в убеждении: если держать Гарри в как можно более забитом состоянии, то из него удастся выбить волшебные способности. К их великому возмущению, ничего не вышло. Теперь им приходилось жить в постоянном страхе: вдруг кто-нибудь узнает, что племянник вот уже два года учится в «Хогварце», школе колдовства и ведьминских искусств. Всё, что они могли предпринять в качестве превентивной меры, так это с самого начала каникул запереть в шкафу книги заклинаний, волшебную палочку, котёл и метлу и запретить мальчику разговаривать с соседями. Недоступность учебников была для Гарри настоящим бедствием, потому что в «Хогварце» много задавали на каникулы. Одна из работ, особенно сложная, про уменьшительные отвары, предназначалась для самого нелюбимого учителя, профессора Злея, а тот был бы в восторге, найдись у него повод наложить на Гарри суровое взыскание на месяц-другой. У Гарри не было выбора — пришлось воспользоваться первым же удобным случаем. В самом начале каникул, пока дядя Вернон, тётя Петуния и Дудли

Kane An immortal, cursed to wander the Earth until he is destroyed by the violence that he himself has created. A warrior and statesman: As comfortable in the shadowy halls of courtly intrigue as he is on the bloody battlefields where those intrigue's inevitably play themselves out. Karl Edward Wagner's complex and compelling character of Kane redefines the boundaries of heroic fantasy, and stands besides Michael Moorcock's Elric, and Fritz Leiber's Fafhrd and Gray Mouser as one of the most idiosyncratic and compelling characters of the fantasy genre. Gods in Darkness gathers together in one volume the complete novels of Kane.
