In 1872, the USS Polaris sailed for the Arctic on a mission to hoist the U.S. flag at the North Pole. But the expedition was a failure, and half of the party – nineteen men, women and children of different nationalities–were cast adrift on an ice floe off the coast of Ellesmere Island, where they endured six desperate months of starvation, bloodshed and other horrors. Afterlands, a profoundly moving and gripping book, takes characters drawn from history and transforms their experiences into an absorbing tale of unrequited love, unsettled scores and the high cost of loyalty. The novel begins in 1876, when three of the survivors – George Tyson, Tukulito and Roland Kruger–are uneasily reunited four years after they were rescued from the ice. They are still inextricably connected by their ordeal–and Tyson has recently published an account of their shattering experiences which casts Kruger as a spy and villain, and disgraces Tukulito as well. What happened on the ice, as Afterlands explores, was far more complex. The heart of the book moves between Tyson’s diaries and a riveting narrative of Arctic survival. From the moment they are set adrift, and even before, Kruger and Tyson seem destined to clash: Kruger is an intelligent individualist, an outsider who refuses to be loyal to any one country; Tyson, meanwhile, is a flawed but sometimes brilliant leader, a man who needs to constantly be testing himself against the world. Brave but also insecure, he is unable to stop the German contingent of his party from banding together under their national flag in an armed near-mutiny on the drifting ice. The third key character in this book, Tukulito, was the Arctic’s first professional interpreter. Known also as Hannah, she moves between two worlds: expert at gutting a seal, she has also had tea with Queen Victoria. Her different roles – translator, mother, mender, marksman – keep the party from disaster, as suspicion and violence increase. And the quiet, impossible passion Kruger feels for her almost redeems their lives in a frozen hell. But Afterlands is also a novel about what follows the life-changing event: the long shadow it casts, as well as the conflicting stories that compete to become historical record. Back in the world, the protagonists will experience various degrees of tragedy. Tukulito’s is perhaps the most personal, while Tyson, who sought only to gain the world’s esteem, is disgraced by later failure. Kruger, meanwhile, attempts to disappear into Mexico, again seeking a place beyond “the colonels of the world” – but he finds himself, perhaps inevitably, drawn once more into the unending conflicts between nations, between peoples. This novel is a triumph of storytelling from one of Canada’s most acclaimed writers. Gripping and beautiful, it is a scintillating exploration of the extremes of human experience. Afterlands brilliantly examines both a devastating encounter with the natural world and the unrelenting demands of the human heart.

The 2016 winner of the Walt Whitman Award of the Academy of American Poets, selected by Carolyn Forché When I make the crossing, you must not be taken no matter what the current gives. When we reach the camp, there will be thousands like us. If I make it onto the plane, you must follow me to the roads and waiting pastures of America. We will not ride the water today on the shoulders of buffalo as we used to many years ago, nor will we forage for the sweetest mangoes. I am refugee. You are too. Cry, but do not weep. —from “Transmigration” Afterland is a powerful, essential collection of poetry that recounts with devastating detail the Hmong exodus from Laos and the fate of thousands of refugees seeking asylum. Mai Der Vang is telling the story of her own family, and by doing so, she also provides an essential history of the Hmong culture’s ongoing resilience in exile. Many of these poems are written in the voices of those fleeing unbearable violence after U.S. forces recruited Hmong fighters in Laos in the Secret War against communism, only to abandon them after that war went awry. That history is little known or understood, but the three hundred thousand Hmong now living in the United States are living proof of its aftermath. With poems of extraordinary force and grace, Afterland holds an original place in American poetry and lands with a sense of humanity saved, of outrage, of a deep tradition broken by war and ocean but still intact, remembered, and lived.

ROMANZO BREVE (59 pagine) - FANTASCIENZA - Vale pure la pena sperare che ci sia ancora qualcosa di buono in cui credere, no? D'altronde, perché ostinarsi a sopravvivere in questo mondo, se non allo scopo di trovarvi un po' di bontà? La pioggia all'esterno non accenna a placarsi. Picchietta sulla copertura di legno del fienile come lo zampettare nervoso di uno stormo di corvi, ruscellando oltre i bordi in lunghe cascate filamentose. Stretto nel mantello umido e sporco di fango, Fenrir continua a battere i denti per un po', ascoltando i brontolii sconnessi dello stomaco che a tratti sovrastano lo scroscio della pioggia e domandandosi se trascorrere la notte in questo fienile sarà sufficiente a fargli passare la febbre. Probabilmente no, risolve qualche istante più tardi. Ma non ci sono abbastanza alternative da potersi permettere il lusso di scegliere. Un topolino sporge il muso da un covone di fieno, annusando l'aria come per accertarsi che non contenga alcuna minaccia. Fattosi coraggio esce allo scoperto e saltella allegramente sulle assi di legno, spingendo davanti a sé un vecchio rocchetto colorato. Fenrir chiude gli occhi e si lascia fagocitare dalla stanchezza come da una coperta di lana ruvida e calda. Presto i brividi e la fame smettono di angustiarlo, e nel giro di qualche altro secondo anche il rumore dell'acquazzone e l'odore del fieno svaniscono, come diradati da una brezza gentile. Poi viene il buio a invadergli la mente, e in men che non si dica il sonno lo porta lontano... Il terzo capitolo della serie post-apocalittica dell'anno! Davide De Boni, vicentino, classe '93, è studente di Medicina e Chirurgia all'Università di Padova. Da sempre appassionato di lettura e scrittura, lotta quotidianamente contro il tempo per conciliare queste attività con gli impegni di studio. Con Delos Digital ha pubblicato nel 2015 "La danza dei morti" (collana "Chew-9") e nel 2016 "Il laboratorio degli orrori" (collana "The Tube Exposed"), è inoltre riuscito a fare capolino nelle pagine delle riviste "Robot" e "Writers Magazine Italia" superando alcuni contest per racconti brevi. Nel 2016 si è piazzato tra i finalisti del Premio John W. Polidori per la letteratura horror ed è stato segnalato alla nona edizione del Premio Robot per racconti inediti di fantascienza. Attualmente lavora per Delos Digital alla sua nuova serie post-apocalittica "Afterlands".

ROMANZO BREVE (58 pagine) - FANTASCIENZA - Sarà una prova dura, ma senz'altro più veritiera di qualunque esame. Dopotutto, esiste forse una sfida più onesta di quella per la sopravvivenza? - Il racconto di esordio di una nuova serie post-apocalittica... La tempesta incombe. La scrutano da giorni, avanzando lungo il letto di un antico fiume prosciugato. Ne parlano con timore, mentre lavorano. Non la nominano mai direttamente, perché si dice che porti sfortuna. Si riferiscono a essa chiamandola "la belva", come hanno fatto intere generazioni prima di loro a bordo della Zephira. Tutti sanno a cosa stanno andando incontro: forse è per questo che si attardano fra le coperte qualche istante in più, questa mattina. Molti di loro non avranno l'occasione di riabbracciare i propri cari, una volta superata la belva. Si tratta di una possibilità con la quale sono abituati a dover fare i conti da sempre, ma ciò non significa che siano realmente preparati ad affrontarla. Allo stesso modo in cui Augustus non è pronto ad accettare che sia arrivato il momento, per suo figlio, di imbracciare le armi. Fenrir ha solo sedici anni. È un ragazzo sveglio, sì, ma anche spavaldo e cocciuto. Una pessima combinazione, di questi tempi, se si ha cara la pelle. Si è addestrato duramente, come tutti gli altri, e ha forse dimostrato di essere un ottimo combattente, ma i predoni delle tempeste non sono i suoi compagni di allenamento: i predoni delle tempeste sono fatti di tutt'altra pasta, e saliranno sulla Zephira soltanto per uccidere...
