* A different sort of true climbing adventure—this one with terrorists, kidnappings, and AK47s * New afterword by the author * First time in paperback Before dawn on August 12, 2000, four of America’s best young rock climbers—Tommy Caldwell, Beth Rodden, Jason “Singer” Smith, and John Dickey—were asleep in their portaledges high on the Yellow Wall in the Pamir-Alai mountain range of Kyrgyzstan. At daybreak, they would be kidnapped at gunpoint by fanatical militants of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), which operates out of secret bases in Tajikistan and Afghanistan and is linked to Al Qaeda. The kidnappers, themselves barely out of their teens, intended to use their hostages as human shields and for ransom money as they moved across Kyrgyzstan. They hid the climbers by day and marched them by night through freezing, treacherous mountain terrain, with little food, no clean water, and the constant threat of execution. The four climbers -- the oldest of them only 25 -- would see a fellow hostage, a Kyrgyz soldier, executed before their eyes. And in a remarkable life-and-death crucible over six terrifying days, they would be forced to choose between saving their own lives and committing an act none of them thought they ever could. In Over the Edge, the climbers reveal the complete story of their nightmarish ordeal to journalist and climber Greg Child. With riveting details, Child re-creates the entire hour-by-hour drama, from the first ricocheting bullets to the climatic decision that gains them their freedom. Set in a region rife with narcotics and terrorism, this is a compelling story about loyalty and the will to survive. What continues to make it relevant today, 15 years after the events took place, is the geopolitical context -- the incident happened, eerily, on the eve of 9–/11; the fact that at least two of the four climbers continue to be prominent in the sport; and the details incorporated into the story around the media hype and controversy regarding the climbers and their story.

This collection brings new voices and new perspectives to the study of popular—and particularly rock—music. Focusing on a variety of artists and music forms, Rock Over the Edge asks what happens to rock criticism when rock is no longer a coherent concept. To work toward an answer, contributors investigate previously neglected genres and styles, such as “lo fi,” alternative country, and “rock en español,” while offering a fresh look at such familiar figures as Elvis Presley, the Beatles, and Kurt Cobain. Bridging the disciplines of musicology and cultural studies, the collection has two primary goals: to seek out a language for talking about music culture and to look at the relationship of music to culture in general. The editors' introduction provides a backward glance at recent rock criticism and also looks to the future of the rapidly expanding discipline of popular music studies. Taking seriously the implications of critical theory for the study of non-literary aesthetic endeavors, the volume also addresses such issues as the affective power of popular music and the psychic construction of fandom. Rock Over the Edge will appeal to scholars and students in popular music studies and American Studies as well as general readers interested in popular music. Contributors. Ian Balfour, Roger Beebe, Michael Coyle, Robert Fink, Denise Fulbrook, Tony Grajeda, Lawrence Grossberg, Trent Hill, Josh Kun, Jason Middleton, Lisa Ann Parks, Ben Saunders, John J.

An essential collection of short stories and essays from the multi-award-winning author of Deathbird Stories. “Arguably the best and most prolific author of novellas and novelettes that Anglophone letters has produced.” —Norman Spinrad, author of Bug Jack Barron, from his Foreword Despite the awards and accolades that categorize Harlan Ellison as a science fiction writer, his canon of work spans a diverse range of categories across fiction and nonfiction. He is, first and foremost, a writer of the human condition, whether he’s richly imagining characters’ experiences and adventures or commenting on the foibles and follies of those he had the misfortune to meet and observe. Over the Edge brings together ten of Ellison’s stories and three of his essays. From a sheriff’s ignoble end in an Old West town to a conspiracy on the steel beams of a construction site and an astronaut’s lonely existence and descent into madness, Ellison’s fiction resides in a genre of his own creation. Meanwhile, his commentary about topics such as writing for Star Trek and interactions with fans captures real human behavior more bizarre and horrifying than anything his imagination can conjure. Includes: “Pennies, Off a Dead Man’s Eyes,” “The End of the Time of Leinard,” “3,” “Faces of Fear: An Essay,” “Blind Lightning,” “Walk the High Steel,” “Shadow Play,” “The Words in Spock’s Mouth: An Essay,” “From a Great Height,” “Night Vigil,” “Xenogenesis: An Essay,” “Rock God,” “Ah-Wegh Thogha,” “Ernest and the Machine God”
