Was wir im Feuer verloren

Argentinien ist ein Land, das heute den viel beschworenen Untergang der Mittelschicht erlebt. Gewalt zieht in den Alltag ein. Traditionen verlieren ihre Gültigkeit und die Gegenwart wird zur Zumutung. Mariana Enríquez schreibt über den Zerfall der Familien, erzählt von Freunden, die sich im Alltag bekriegen, von Häusern, in denen es spukt und in denen Menschen verschwinden. Sie erzählt von Mädchen, die sich selbst verbrennen, von einem Mann, der sich in den dunklen Seiten des Internets verirrt hat und für die Welt verloren ist. Enríquez’ Stimme ist ruhig, gelassen — als sei dies alles ganz normal. Und so erzeugt die Autorin eine enorme Wirkung, entwirft das Zerrbild einer Gesellschaft kurz vor dem Kollaps, einer Demokratie am Abgrund. Mariana Enríquez steht in der Erzähltradition von Borges und Cortázar und doch sind ihre Erzählungen ganz gegenwärtig. Sie gehört zu den wichtigsten Stimmen der jungen lateinamerikanischen Literatur.

From the Golden Age of the 1940s, through the Silver Age of the ’60s, up until the early ’80s—the end of the Bronze Age. Included are the earliest series, like American Comics Group’s Adventures into the Unknown and Prize Comics’ Frankenstein, and the controversial and gory comics of the ’40s, such as EC’s infamous and influential Tales from the Crypt. The resurgence of monster-horror titles during the ’60s is explored, along with the return of horror anthologies like Dell Comics’ Ghost Stories and Charlton’s Ghostly Tales from the Haunted House. The explosion of horror titles following the relaxation of the comics code in the ’70s is fully documented with chapters on Marvel’s prodigious output—The Tomb of Dracula, Werewolf by Night and others—DC’s anthologies—Witching Hour and Ghosts—and titles such as Swamp Thing, as well as the notable contributions of firms like Gold Key and Atlas. This book examines how horror comics exploited everyday terrors, and often reflected societal attitudes toward women and people who were different.

It is more than a century since the ascetic, gaunt and enigmatic detective, Sherlock Holmes, made his first appearance in A Study in Scarlet. From 1891, beginning with The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, the now legendary and pioneering Strand Magazine began serialising Arthur Conan Doyle's matchless tales of detection, featuring the incomparable sleuth patiently assisted by his doggedly loyal and lovably pedantic friend and companion, Dr Watson. The stories are illustrated by the remarkable Sydney Paget from whom our images of Sherlock Holmes and his world derive and who first equipped Holmes with his famous deerstalker hat. The literary cult of Sherlock Holmes shows no sign of fading with time as each new generation comes to love and revere the penetrating mind and ruthless logic which were the undoing of so many Victorian master criminals.
