In the Mountains of Madness by W. Scott Poole Book Summary:

This brilliant and page-turning book reveals the importance of H.P. Lovecraft in a way no one has before--a survey of his life but, more importantly, an examination of his influence that stretches throughout the entertainment industry and into society as a whole. Interweaving the biography of the legendary writer with an exploration of Lovecraft as a phenomenon, In the Mountains of Madness strives to explain this reclusive, cultish figure while challenging some of the general views held by Lovecraft devotees. Focusing specifically on the large cross-section of horror and science fiction fans who know Lovecraft through films, role-playing games, and video games directly influenced by his work, but who know little or nothing about the man himself, In the Mountains of Madness places Lovecraft and his work in a cultural context, as an artist more in tune with our time than his own. More than a traditional biography, this provocative book reclaims the true essence of Lovecraft in relation to the comics of Joe Lansdale, the novels of Stephen King, and some of the biggest blockbuster films in contemporary America, proving the undying influence of this rare and significant figure.

Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer Book Summary:

National Bestseller A bank of clouds was assembling on the not-so-distant horizon, but journalist-mountaineer Jon Krakauer, standing on the summit of Mt. Everest, saw nothing that "suggested that a murderous storm was bearing down." He was wrong. The storm, which claimed five lives and left countless more--including Krakauer's--in guilt-ridden disarray, would also provide the impetus for Into Thin Air, Krakauer's epic account of the May 1996 disaster. By writing Into Thin Air, Krakauer may have hoped to exorcise some of his own demons and lay to rest some of the painful questions that still surround the event. He takes great pains to provide a balanced picture of the people and events he witnessed and gives due credit to the tireless and dedicated Sherpas. He also avoids blasting easy targets such as Sandy Pittman, the wealthy socialite who brought an espresso maker along on the expedition. Krakauer's highly personal inquiry into the catastrophe provides a great deal of insight into what went wrong. But for Krakauer himself, further interviews and investigations only lead him to the conclusion that his perceived failures were directly responsible for a fellow climber's death. Clearly, Krakauer remains haunted by the disaster, and although he relates a number of incidents in which he acted selflessly and even heroically, he seems unable to view those instances objectively. In the end, despite his evenhanded and even generous assessment of others' actions, he reserves a full measure of vitriol for himself. This updated edition of Into Thin Air includes an extensive new postscript that sheds fascinating light on the acrimonious debate that flared between Krakauer and Everest guide Anatoli Boukreev in the wake of the tragedy. "I have no doubt that Boukreev's intentions were good on summit day," writes Krakauer in the postscript, dated August 1999. "What disturbs me, though, was Boukreev's refusal to acknowledge the possibility that he made even a single poor decision. Never did he indicate that perhaps it wasn't the best choice to climb without gas or go down ahead of his clients." As usual, Krakauer supports his points with dogged research and a good dose of humility. But rather than continue the heated discourse that has raged since Into Thin Air's denouncement of guide Boukreev, Krakauer's tone is conciliatory; he points most of his criticism at G. Weston De Walt, who coauthored The Climb, Boukreev's version of events. And in a touching conclusion, Krakauer recounts his last conversation with the late Boukreev, in which the two weathered climbers agreed to disagree about certain points. Krakauer had great hopes to patch things up with Boukreev, but the Russian later died in an avalanche on another Himalayan peak, Annapurna I. In 1999, Krakauer received an Academy Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters--a prestigious prize intended "to honor writers of exceptional accomplishment." According to the Academy's citation, "Krakauer combines the tenacity and courage of the finest tradition of investigative journalism with the stylish subtlety and profound insight of the born writer. His account of an ascent of Mount Everest has led to a general reevaluation of climbing and of the commercialization of what was once a romantic, solitary sport; while his account of the life and death of Christopher McCandless, who died of starvation after challenging the Alaskan wilderness, delves even more deeply and disturbingly into the fascination of nature and the devastating effects of its lure on a young and curious mind."

Collected Ghost Stories by M.R. James Book Summary:

Considered by many to be the most terrifying writer in English, M. R. James was an eminent scholar who spent his entire adult life in the academic surroundings of Eton and Cambridge. His classic supernatural tales draw on the terrors of the everyday, in which documents and objects unleash terrible forces, often in closed rooms and night-time settings where imagination runs riot. Lonely country houses, remote inns, ancient churches or the manuscript collections of great libraries provide settings for unbearable menace, from creatures seeking retribution and harm. These stories have lost none of their power to unsettle and disturb.

I'm Going to College---Not You! by Jennifer Delahunty Book Summary:

Acceptance by a top college is more than a gold star on a high school graduate's forehead today. It has morphed into the ultimate "good parenting" stamp of approval--the better the bumper sticker, the better the parent, right? Parents of juniors and seniors in high school fret over SAT scores and essays, obsessed with getting their kids into the right college, while their children push for independence. I'm Going to College---Not You! is a resource for parents, written by parents who've been in their shoes. Kenyon College dean Jennifer Delahunty shares her unique perspective (and her daughter's) on one of the toughest periods of parenting, and has assembled a top-notch group of writers that includes best-selling authors, college professors and admissions directors, and journalists. Their experiences with the difficult balancing act between control freak and resource answer questions like: --how can a parent be less of a "helicopter" (hovering) and more of a "booster rocket" (uplifting)? --what do you do when your child wants to put off college to become a rock star? and --how will you keep from wanting to kill each other? Contributors include: Jane Hamilton David Latt Neal Pollack Joe Queenan Anne Roark Debra Shaver Anna Quindlen Ellen Waterston

At the Mountains of Madness & Other Stories by HP Lovecraft Book Summary:

"Aku bergidik saat labirin dinding tinggi, menara, dan tiang megah samar bermunculan dari balik uap es. Di hadapanku kemudian terbentang pemandangan sebuah kota dengan arsitektur yang tak pernah ada, bahkan dalam imajinasi sekalipun." Membaca karya-karya H.P. Lovecraft bisa memunculkan kengerian yang khas dan menumbuhkan imajinasi terliar. Sejak kecil, penulis horor paling berpengaruh pada abad ke-20 ini lebih suka mengurung diri dalam rumah sambil membaca berbagai buku. Bacaan favoritnya adalah buku sains dan kisah misteri, terutama karya-karya Edgar Allan Poe yang kelak menjadi inspirasinya dalam berkarya. Sama seperti Poe, Lovecraft disebut-sebut telah memberi warna baru dalam genre horor. Karya-karyanya selalu beberapa langkah lebih maju dibanding tren yang ada pada era itu. Misalnya dalam At the Mountains of Madness, pembaca diajak menempuh perjalanan mendebarkan, melampaui batas nalar. Ilmu pengetahuan diadu dengan mitos. Kengerian menjelma menjadi nayta. Sementara dalam Seruan Cthulhu, pembaca dibuat bertanya-tanya akan eksistensi makhluk-makhluk absurd di antara manusia biasa dan cara mengidentifikasinya. Kini kami hadirkan kembali rangkaian karya Lovecraft yang berpengaruh pada perkembangan genre horor modern. Setiap cerita yang terhimpun dalam buku ini juga menunjukkan bahwa kisah horor juga bisa berdekatan dengan sains dan teknologi. [Mizan, Noura Books, Nourabooks, Novel, Terjemahan, Indonesia]
