A thrilling tale of high-altitude death and survival set on the snowy summits of Mount Everest, from the bestselling author of The Terror. It's 1924 and the race to summit the world's highest mountain has been brought to a terrified pause by the shocking disappearance of George Mallory and Sandy Irvine high on the shoulder of Mt. Everest. By the following year, three climbers find a way to take their shot at the top. They arrange funding from the grieving Lady Bromley, whose son also disappeared on Mt. Everest in 1924. Young Bromley must be dead, but his mother refuses to believe it and pays the trio to bring him home. The Abominable is Dan Simmons at his spine-chilling best.

Who's Who in Non-Classical Mythology

Who's Who in Non-Classical Mythology (Routledge Who's Who Series) by Edgerton Skyes
Publisher: Routledge | Number Of Pages: 256 | Publication Date: 1993-09-30 | ISBN-10: 0415136482 | PDF | 1 Mb

The new Oxford Who's Who series offers a unique library of some of the world's greatest and most enduring literary, religious, and folklore traditions. Alphabetically arranged for easy accessibilty, the thousands of engagingly written entries cover every character in their related fields, providing readers with the most comprehensive and wide-ranging reference collection of its kind.
Most books on mythology are primarily concerned with the Greek and Roman tradition, giving the equally vibrant myths of other cultures short shrift. Providing a much-needed solution to this problem, this unique guide offers wide-ranging and thorough coverage of non-classical mythological figures, from the Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas to Zu, the lion-headed Sumerian storm bird. With its global, multicultural perspective, Who's Who in Non-Classical Mythology presents exciting and readable accounts of the gods, heroes, and myths of Europe (including the Celts, Teutons, Slavs, and Basques), the Americas, Africa, Australia, China, Japan, and Indonesia. For those interested in a fresh approach to world mythology it is indispensable; for lovers of the classical tradition it will open up a whole new world.
