Малахов курганВ детстве «Малахов курган» был одной из любимых книжек, смущал лишь тот факт, что в официальных советских изданиях главные герои — простая матросская семья Могученко — выведены как «русские», тогда как на самом деле они, конечно, являлись этническими «малороссами», т. е. украинцами. Равно как и предок адмирала П. С. Нахимова — казак Ахтырского полка Мануил Нохименко. Сегодня мало кто в России вспоминает, что первым русским историческим романистом являлся вовсе не Михаил Загоскин, а Василий Нарежный — обрусевший малоросс. А русской армией в его время командовал потомок украинских казаков Иван Паскевич — личный друг и однокашник по кадетскому корпусу царя Николая I. Не говоря уже о графах Разумовских и их побочных потомках Перовских. Помимо Н. В. Гоголя, Н. И. Костомарова, В. Г. Короленко и др., украинские корни (по матери) имел писатель Алексей Константинович Толстой, автор «Князя Серебряного» и крылатых афоризмов Козьмы Пруткова. А также популярнейший советский писатель Василий Ян (Янчевецкий). Велика роль украинцев в создании первого Советского правительства, Красной Армии, органов ЧК-ОГПУ, Рабоче-крестьянской милиции, организации советского народного хозяйства и советской науки. Обидно, что в советской литературе, в том числе детской и исторической, постоянно замалчивались украинские корни главных героев и выдающихся персонажей. Отрицание украинской национальной самобытности, систематическое замалчивание роли украинского народа в создании и укреплении Российской империи, политической, культурной, научной жизни России — сыграло «на руку» украинским националистам, последователям Бандеры и Шухевича, которым на исходе второго тысячелетия удалось, наконец, поссорить и разобщить два братских народа. И вина в этом отчасти лежит и на невежественном партийном руководстве Советского Союза, сделавшегося «тюрьмой» для многих народов, в том числе украинского.
Кара небесная (СИ)Божечки, какая хрень... Автору на разных сайтах пишут отзывы, что язык беден и примитивен, героиня тупа и нелогична, но автор с завидным упорством продолжает клепать свои книжонки...

Letty Dobesh is coming off a bender and hasn't had a job in months when she gets a very enticing offer. John Fitch, the ultrawealthy CEO of a major energy company, has recently been convicted of securities fraud. In four days he must report to a federal prison, where he will almost certainly spend the rest of his life. Fitch wants a female companion for his last night of freedom. But Letty is no high-priced call girl, and this gig isn't about sex. The plan is to steal an original Van Gogh from Fitch's island retreat. A petty thief by trade, Letty has never had a shot at this kind of payout. It's certainly dangerous, but the money will set her up for life and allow her to regain custody of her young son. Besides, it's stealing from a very bad guy. If all goes well, she'll be on Easy Street...but in Letty's life, all seldom goes well.

Before the events of Blake Crouch’s horror novels DESERT PLACES and LOCKED DOORS... Before the events of Jack Kilborn's and Blake Crouch's #1 Amazon Kindle bestseller SERIAL... The year is 1995, and a young girl with psychopathic tendencies named Lucy (the sweetheart from SERIAL) has run away from home to a mystery convention to see her favorite author in the world: Andrew Z. Thomas. But Lucy has problems, and not just the psychopathic kind…to start with, the hotel won’t rent a room to a 15-year-old girl. So she does a bad, bad thing, which only gets worse when a couple of horrifying killers, Orson Thomas, and his protege, Luther Kite, catch her trying to cover up a nasty mess. BAD GIRL is a thriller novella that brings all of Crouch’s most terrifying villains to the same hotel. A prequel to SERIAL, which has been downloaded more than 200,000 times, BAD GIRL is not for the faint of heart. Let the reader beware. BAD GIRL also contains a bonus interview with Blake, plus excerpts from all four of his novels. *Note: BAD GIRL is fully contained in SERIAL UNCUT. BAD GIRL + TRUCK STOP + SERIAL = SERIAL UNCUT.
From the Foreword by J.A. Konrath: "Crouch is one of the best thriller short story writers I know. He uses words like an artist uses a paintbrush; to hurt, to stun, to shock, to provoke, to touch. This collection also features my very favorite short story of all time. Not just my favorite by Crouch, but the best one I've ever read by anyone. It's called "Unconditional." It is flat-out brilliant and unforgettable, and that one tale is worth the price of this entire collection." From the author of DESERT PLACES and LOCKED DOORS comes this complete collection of short stories and novellas. *69 - Tim and Laura West receive a bizarre voicemail on their answering machine that seems to have unintentionally recorded a brutal murder. But what happens when the killer realizes their mistake? This story develops over one terrifying evening, and this young couple will never be the same. REMAKING - Tragic events unfold in a snowy, sleepy Colorado town. From the first scene, in which a man sits alone in the cold, watching a father and son in a diner, you know something is about to go horribly wrong. You may think you know what's happening, but in this thrilling, heartbreaking story, nothing is as it seems. ON THE GOOD, RED ROAD - A group of four hard men trying to reach a remote 19th Century mining town become stranded in an early blizzard and resort to drastic, terrifying measures, to stay alive. SHINING ROCK - An older couple encounter a strange and menacing visitor during a camping trip in the North Carolina mountains. Friendly at first, this stranger seems to know them, seems to know their secrets, and as things escalate, they become convinced that they may never leave these mountains alive. PERFECT LITTLE TOWN - Ron and Jessica Stahl are a power couple from California, on a Christmas holiday in Colorado. When they stop for the afternoon in sleepy Lone Cone, they're charmed by the quaint tourist town. But the folksy hospitality will vanish as the sun drops behind the mountains. The Stahls couldn't have picked a worse night of the year to get snowed into this perfect little town with a dark, dark secret. SERIAL - The classic horror short I wrote with J.A. Konrath, in which we turn our attention to the twin golden rules of hitchhiking: # 1: Don't go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy. # 2: Don't pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be a raving nutcase. So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy #1 offered a ride to Nutcase #2? THE NEWTON BOYS' LAST PHOTOGRAPH - At 25 words, the shortest story I ever wrote. But it packs a wallop. THE METEOROLOGIST - Peter, a disgraced meteorologist and chronic wanderer, has traveled the country for years in his Winnebago, in search of the only thing that gives his life meaning. He's just arrived in the middle of nowhere-Hokie, Kansas-for the same purpose, but when he meets a waitress named Melanie, another sufferer, he's faced not only with his first real human contact in years, but perhaps someone who can save him. UNCONDITIONAL - A conversation between two people-devastating, tragic, and beautiful. THE PAIN OF OTHERS - Letty Dobesh, a gorgeous, degenerate thief, is fresh out of the clink and back to her old tricks-in this case, burglarizing suites at a luxury hotel in Asheville, North Carolina. But when she's surprised by returning guests on her last room of the day, she's forced to hide in the closet to avoid getting caught, and inadvertently overhears a hitman being contracted to murder the wife of a wealthy lawyer. This 60,000-word short story collection also contains a foreword by J.A. Konrath and introductions to each story by the author. BLAKE CROUCH is the author of four novels and numerous short stories, including "Serial" which he co-wrote with J.A. Konrath and has been downloaded more than 300,000 times. He lives in southwest Colorado, where he is at work on a new book. His website is www.blakecrouch.co
On Christmas Day in 1893, every man, woman, and child in a remote gold-mining town disappeared, belongings forsaken, meals left to freeze in vacant cabins—and not a single bone was ever found. One hundred sixteen years later, two backcountry guides are hired by a history professor and his journalist daughter to lead them to the abandoned mining town so they can learn what happened. Recently, a similar party had also attempted to explore the town and was never heard from again. Now the area is believed to be haunted. This crew is about to discover, twenty miles from civilization with a blizzard bearing down, that they are not alone, and the past is very much alive.

His website is www.blakecrouch.com.Praise for Blake Crouch’s ABANDON:ABANDON would make an excellent movie, switching back and forth between the plain-but-sturdy homes, saloon and church in 1893 and the same structures rotting to dust in 2009...a clever dual story. CHARLOTTE OBSERVERABANDON [is] two separate works of past and present seamlessly melded together into a single novel that demands to be read in one sitting, so you can better appreciate the beauty of Crouch’s storytelling…[O]ne of those books that almost instantly puts you in the mind of a classic.BOOKREPORTER Haunting, fast-paced, and thoroughly engrossing... ABANDON is one of the most original tales of ghosts, greed and gold I've come across. Crouch aligns both eras so perfectly, it's as if the characters are occupying the same breath within the space/time continuum. ABANDON will be one of the most talked-about books of the summer.THE MADISON COUNTY HERALD Ambitious…the palpable suspense just keeps building, and many thriller fans—especially those who like a touch of horror—will lose sleep to find out how it all ends.BOOKLISTABANDON is terrific…a great storyteller hitting his stride.LEE CHILD
