The Hungry 5

Engines roaring, they circled the van like hungry road sharks, bikes ridden by men who were proudly dangerous and virtually unpredictable. Miller and Scratch stayed still at the dash, with their hands in plain sight.

Sheriff Penny Miller of Flat Rock, Nevada, has always done her duty. On the first night of the zombie apocalypse, she swore an oath to protect her friends from the ravenous hordes. However, now that the virus is rapidly spreading to the rest of the country it has become clear that Miller and her friends, Scratch, Sheppard, and Rat, are winning battles but losing the war. And that’s just not good enough for Penny. Too many people have already died. Determined to stop the maniacs who have been funding the research that created the undead, and with the key to stopping the virus in hand, Miller and crew embark on a long and dangerous journey north. Their route cuts through the very heart of zombie occupied territory, but this time they are out to end the apocalypse once and for all. Unfortunately, the elite committee of government officials who control the Super Soldier program knows exactly where Miller and her friends are headed, and they are determined to capture or kill them at any cost. Sheriff Miller doesn’t stand a chance. Of course, lousy odds never stopped her before. She gives the order to move out. And that’s when all hell breaks loose. “Zombie thrillers loaded with sex and smarts.” —Jonathan Maberry, NY Times best-selling author “A good-looking, foul-mouthed female Sheriff, and she’s packin’.

Great combination of action, gore, horror and humor.’ —Dana Fredsi, author of Plague Nation. “Penny Miller brings something new to the game, something that we’ve all been craving.” —Joe McKinney, author of Dead City “Defines laugh out loud funny.” —Bookish Brunette “Penny Miller brings something new to the game, something that we’ve all been craving.” —Joe McKinney, author of Dead City

The Hungry Hills is a collection of thirty-two true stories about real hillbillies. The tales take place in a semi-autonomous region located on either side of a dogleg of the Ozark Mountains. The natives of the region descend Tennessee and Kentucky pioneering men who were shorn of birthright and therefore forced to move westward in search of wild game and security. Some arrived in the wild upper reaches of the Ozarks just ahead of U.S. Marshals. These hillbillies are about as friendly a bunch of citizens that can be found any place. They may not pay taxes, or believe in gainful employment, but then they don't expect handouts from anybody either, especially the Government.

[Buy this book now only at the iUniverse.com bookstore. Order from bookstores everywhere in 4-6 weeks!] The Hungry Bachelors Club is a novel that takes place in Atlanta, Georgia. Jethro, an anthropology professor consumed with saving classic Cadillacs, and his rebellious sidekick, Marlon, meet ex-con Moses Grady living in a 1956 Sedan. Meanwhile Jethro's overworked sister, Delmar, across town, is throwing together a dinner party with her friend Hortense who is trying to lure her noncommital hungry bachelor lawyer boyfriend Stanley into marriage. Stanley, on the sly, suggests to Delmar that she become a surrogate mother for his boss for big bucks, then he'll be made partner. The characters at the table keep coming and going : Delmar's senile mother, who plays stride blues piano, her tempestuous son, a rich old man found at a supermarket and one elderly matron who drops dead after the second course. Enter Jethro to say the Mayan last rites before, “she is pumped with chemicals for marketing purposes.” The Hungry Bachelors Club may have food, sex, Indians, the Blues, and characters who are struggling to see the difference between substance and style, obligation and necessity, but most of all, tolerance, which prevails through affirming and loving relationships. The Hungry Bachelors Club was made into a feature film, released November, 1999, directed by Gregory Ruzzin, starring Bill Nunn as Moses Grady and Jorja Fox as Delmar.

William D'Arcy McNickle was born in 1904 in Montana to a father of Scottish-Irish heritage and a French-Canadian Cree mother. His mixed-blood heritage and his parents' rocky marriage and subsequent divorce would strongly influence the future versions of his first novel The Surrounded. The Hungry Generations is an early, handwritten version of McNickle's groundbreaking and semi-autobiographical novel The Surrounded and consists of three distinct parts. Part one is set in McNickle's native Montana and has the protagonist, Archilde, reconciling with his father. This part corresponds most closely to the The Surrounded. Part two takes place in Paris where Archilde meets Claudia and her family and explores the community of the American expatriate artists. This section was cut out entirely during revisions of the novel. Part three shows Archilde as a farmer on his father's land in Montana and his arrest and trial for the murder of the game warden. The Hungry Generations is a social document providing insight into Indian-White marriages at the turn of the twentieth century, the life of the mixed-blood children of these marriages, and the attempts to assimilate them into mainstream American life. Partially autobiographical, the novel serves as a mirror of McNickle's adolescence on the Flathead Reservation in Montana and his experiences in Europe. Birgit Hans offers an extensive introduction to The Hungry Generations and presents the novel here as it was originally written in the 1930s. This manuscript version of The Hungry Generations is located in the archives of The Newberry Library in Chicago and has never before been published.

This study examines the theme of poverty in the fourth-century sermons of Basil of Caesarea, Gregory Nazianzen, and Gregory Nysson. These sermons are especially important for what they tell us about the history of poverty relief and the role of fourth century Christian theology in constructing the body of the redemptive, involuntary poor. Some of the topics explored include the contextualization of the poor in scholarship, the poor in late antiquity, and starvation and famine dynamics. In exploring this relationship between cultural context and theological language, this volume offers a broad and fresh overview of these little-studied texts.
