Andrew J. Olson takes readers to rural Minnesota, where children are essential parts in the machinery of everyday life. Young men learn that hard work is its own reward, and that promises can be reaped from the land. However, workaday tragedies lie in wait, and Mother Nature is brutish in her lack of sympathy. Fortunately, the sense of duty that comes with living in a small community helps to temper both grief and loss, and in the end, we find that the heart of the heart of the country is a gift that cant be sought, only found. For those of us who are blessed to live on corn-speckled streets, these stories by Andrew J. Olson ring true. There is also a universality that readers will recognize as Olson tells stories that explore family relationships, innocence, loss, grief, revenge. We reach into the stories, and they surprise us, move us, encourage us, and help us to see ourselves, each other, and the world more clearly. David Bengtson, author of Broken Lines: Prose Poems. In this evocative first collection set mostly on family farms in west central Minnesota, Andrew J. Olson strips his haunted young men of everything but their pride... these characters live in hardscrabble but resilient emotional territory. This is their survival manual, and Olson writes it with a flair for the telling episode or detail. Alan Davis, author of So Bravely Vegetative and Rumors from the Lost World. Set in Minnesota, the stories of Barn Stripping and Other Stories are written with a starkness that matches the often bleak winter landscapes of their settings. Death is matter-of-fact here, yet so is life. Part William Saroyan, part Kent Haruf, Olson writes with tenderness and wisdom about a world he knows well. Lori Ostlund, author of The Bigness of the World. Barn Stripping strips away all literary excess, cuts to the bone and offers us compact and compelling tales of contemporary rural life. These stories are as spare, pristine and haunting as the windswept landscapes they so vividly evoke. Elizabeth Searle, author of Girl Held In Home.

In these fourteen stories, Cameron Raynes traverses landscapes of regret, joy and redemption. In a country town, a woman plots to ruin her rival with an act steeped in racism. A welfare worker is asked to spy on a colleague. And in the award-winning title story, a taxi driver accepts a fare he knows he shouldn't: They headed east, the nude hills of the Geraldton plains, stripped of their trees a century before, leaning into them on both sides as the car climbed into the marginal country. Behind him, Luke heard the gurgle of fluid sluicing out of a bladder and into a cup, smelt the sweet stink of cheap wine. It occurred to him that it was not too late to turn back.

Der programmatische Gedanke, menschliches Leben durch gezielte Eingriffe verbessern zu können, hat seit der Entstehung der neuzeitlichen Wissenschaften Konjunktur. Das wissenschaftlich-technisch begründete Programm, Menschen machen zu können, reicht von minimalen Manipulationen bis hin zu umfassenden medizinisch-invasiven oder psychotechnischen Eingriffen. Die Implikationen dieser zwiespältigen Fortschrittsgeschichte sind bis heute unzulänglich untersucht worden. Optimierungen des Humanen und damit verbundene Normierungen der Lebens- und Handlungspraxis transformieren den Menschen und unser Bild vom Menschen in vielfältiger Weise. Die Beiträge in diesem Band gehen solchen »Schattenseiten« von Optimierungsprogrammen nach.

The book Chain and Other Stories contains nine stories. The first story, Chain, is about two federal agents who go undercover in Anchorage, Alaska, with two NYC detectives to investigate whether or not an oil mogul is using kidnapped kids to make weapons sold throughout the United States if so stop him. The next story, Gradill, is about an FBI agent who is investigating a case in Chicago where a bioterrorist is using SARS and Anthrax to poison or sicken CEO’s of biochemical companies and local politicians who are giving them leeway to get funding and do research. The last of the first stories is Shatter Blue Magic—a story dealing with a young man who is an assassin who leaves a person alive he was supposed to kill, now he is only having to kill the person before he kills him and the lady he loves. The second batch of stories starts with Shatter Blue Magic 2, which is about the assassin from the first story having to kill his younger brother and sister-in-law, who have both been assigned to kill him, his wife, son, and employers. Web is the sequel to Chain where the two federal agents from the first story go undercover in Phoenix, Arizona, with two Phoenix detectives to investigate and stop two nightclub owners in Phoenix from kidnapping teenage girls and selling them to the adult entertainment industry to work as adult film stars. Gradill 2 is where the FBI agent from the first story is going undercover in Chicago to investigate a local domestic terrorist group and stop them from wrecking havoc in Chicago. The third batch of stories is Gradill 3 where the FBI agent from the two previous stories goes undercover with her sister to investigate a growing local domestic terrorist group who is causing trouble in Chicago and to stop them. The Last Call for Shatter Blue Magic picks up where the second story left off, healing his wounds from his encounter with his brother and sister-in-law, the assassin takes one last job where he must go around the world killing criminal organizations, corrupt policemen, crooked politicians, and terrorists, or he and his family and employers will be killed. Link is the last story in the Chain series where the two federal agents must go to Honolulu, Hawaii, with two Honolulu detectives to go undercover at a local sweatshop to investigate and stop a local rich woman and her friends from using children from Asia and America to work in her sweatshop making clothes that end up in department stores.
