    King, Stephen, 1947-

    "In a small New England town over half a century ago, a boy is playing with his new toy soldiers in the dirt in front of his house when a shadow falls over him.

The men and boys are a bit in love with Mrs. Jacobs; the women and girls, with the Reverend Jacobs-- including Jamie's sisters and mother. Then tragedy strikes, and this charismatic preacher curses God, and is banished from the shocked town. Jamie has demons of his own. Wed to his guitar from age 13, he plays in bands across the country, running from his own family tragedies, losing one job after another when his addictions get the better of him. Decades later, sober and living a decent life, he and Reverend Charles Jacobs meet again in a pact beyond even the Devil's devising, and the many terrifying meanings of Revival are revealed." -- Provided by publisher.

    Bash Bash Revolution

    Lain, Douglas, author.

    "Seventeen-year old Matthew Munson's a high school dropout, doing little with his time but playing an outdated video game called Bash Bash Revolution and hanging around Dairy Queen with his girlfriend Sally. That is, until his missing dad turns up. Jeffrey Munson is a computer geek who'd left home when Matthew was young to work on a top-secret government AI project, and has been a sporadic presence in his son's life. Now he's back, but as Matthew reluctantly begins to let him back into his life, his son will discover the true nature, and the shocking goal, of the artifical intelligence his father helped to create. Told as a series of social media posts, including some between Matthew and the mysterious AI itself, Bash Bash Revolution is a wildly original novel of apocalypse and revolution, as well as a poignant story of a broken family"--from back cover.
