Elliott Zzaimix loved living in a nine-story house. It made living with eight other family members stress free. One night, she and her family, nine people strong, awaken to the sound of breaking glass. An intruder has smashed their belongings...and he's still in the house! The Zzaimix family scares off the intruder when they investigate the break-in. As they compare each family member's account of the night's events, they realize they have Nine Stories. The mystery deepens as the break-in appears to be more than a random act of burglary. The intruder breaks in a second time while the Zzaimixes stay with their Uncle Preston. Who is the intruder? Why would he break into their house once and then return to break in again? What does the intruder have against the Zzaimixes? Join Elliott and the rest of the Zzaimix family in their adventure as they investigate and uncover clues to the shocking identity of the intruder and a hidden family secret.

How could one teenage boy’s life elicit other kids’ first experiences — even after he dies? Nine interconnected stories from nine top YA writers. Kev’s the first kid their age to die. And now, even though he’s dead, he’s not really gone. Even now his choices are touching the people he left behind. Ellen Hopkins reveals what two altar boys (and one altar girl) might get up to at the cemetery. Rita Williams-Garcia follows one aimless teen as he finds a new life in his new job — at the mortuary. Will Weaver turns a lens on Kevin’s sister as she collects his surprising effects — and makes good use of them. Here, in nine stories, we meet people who didn’t know Kevin, friends from his childhood, his ex-girlfriend, his best friend, all dealing with the fallout of his death. Being a teenager is a time for all kinds of firsts — first jobs, first loves, first good-byes, firsts that break your heart and awaken your soul. It’s an initiation of sorts, and it can be brutal. But on the other side of it is the rest of your life. With stories by Chris Barton Nora Raleigh Baskin Marina Budhos Ellen Hopkins A.S. King Torrey Maldonado Charles R. Smith Jr. Will Weaver Rita Williams-Garcia

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION: "Thanks to Mrs. Kroeber’s simple, supple style, the stories all succeed as stories; they please, engage, move, or divert without depending for their effect on their exotic source."—The New Yorker "The varying but almost always superb story style of these narratives will speak to all."—New York Herald Tribune "This is a jewel of a book."—San Francisco Chronicle "These stories enlarge life. They remind us of Shakespeare and Aeschylus…. That Mrs. Kroeber’s book should generate such thoughts is proof of its power and beauty."—New York Times Book Review

These stories are about rebirth: learning to live in the world again after facing an emotional and spiritual desert, facing space where questions and answers end. Most of the nine stories rely upon imagery and sound to create meaning where story ends. All present characters with life-creating questions, questions whose answers cannot be sought in the company of others or through the words of others; these are questions whose contemplation gives rise to answers as large as our world and as silent. The reader is left at the end of each facing the landscape of the West while oriented toward the spiritual East.

At a hot-dog-eating contest or at a demolition derby, in line at the pharmacy counter waiting for a shingles vaccination, living in a cave with a colony of bats: the Almighty appears in ever-more mysterious ways in Ninety-Nine Stories of God, Joy Williams' surreal, sublime new collection of very short short stories. Each less than a page long, each packing a punch belied by its size, every one of these ninety-nine stories tells of everyday human interaction with an increasingly elusive and arbitrary deity. Haunted by an array of extraordinary historical figures, from Kafka and Tolstoy to O. J. Simpson and Philip K. Dick, but populated by anonymous ordinary people just like you and me, the stories pool seemingly random moments into something deep, dazzling and disconcerting. Bleak and funny, ironic and lyrical, enigmatic and aphoristic, Ninety-Nine Stories of God breaks down the barriers between the everyday and the divine and takes Williams' writing into territories strange and new.

Into American writing, Romanian Fugue in C Sharp brings an entirely new sensibility, at once haunting and irreverent, lyric and satirical. The American bombing of the oil refineries at Ploiesti, Romania in 1944 plunges the timeless village of Frasinet into the modern world. As the boots of history tramp through Frasinet, bringing the brutal absurdities of Communism, the villagers and their city friends are forced to adapt and survive. Adalgiza and her fellow prostitutes become a socialist weavers' cooperative; George, a hospitable giant, tries to keep his spectator attitude; two families of wandering gypsies refuse to enter into time at all; Theodore, a mischievous intelligence, drowns himself in American jazz and pleasure; Norel, a sorcerer, becomes a secret agent; and Fanoutza, the stubborn, sensitive little girl at the book's center, grows into Stephanie, a poet and journalist, determined to become Theodore's lover and to fly out into the free world.

"From Ernest Hemingway's Preface- 'There are many kinds of stories in this book. I hope you will find some that you like- In going where you have to go, and doing what you have to do, and seeing what you have to see, you dull and blunt the instrument you write with. But I would rather have it bent and dulled and know I had to put it on the grindstone and hammer it into shape and put a whetstone to it, and know that I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining, and nothing to say, or smooth and well-oiled in the closet, but unused.' A collection of Hemingway's first forty-nine short stories, featuring a brief introduction by the author and lesser known as well as familiar tales, including 'Up in Michigan', 'Fifty Grand', and 'The Light of the World', and the Snows of Kilimanjaro, Winner Take Nothing'and Men Without Womencollections."
