Nightfall by Andrew Harvey

Nightfall by Andrew Harvey

After eighty years of war the remnants of humanity on the Nayarit Line struggled to survive in sealed domes, surrounded by radioactive wasteland and genetically engineered viruses. It was in the last, desperate years of the war that the first trans-temporal portal was developed at Chiqu, a small research facility on the west coast of North America. As the domes finally failed and civilization collapsed around them, Iapura led fifty-three survivors to found a new empire on a parallel Earth; an Earth where, in 1884, Russian and English armies faced each other across America’s Great Plains, totally unprepared for the technology of the invading Nayarit.

The Cross-Temporal Empire now encompasses fifty-four parallel Earths. But with its ruling Council riven by dissent the death of First Leader Manet, sets the Council into a slow and irrevocable slide into civil war. A war that threatens not only the lives of the Clemhorn siblings: Conrad, Arnold, Donald, and Ivy; but the very future of the Empire.

Pan Tadeusz by Adam Mickiewicz (Paperback) $18.00

Pan Tadeusz by Adam Mickiewicz (Paperback)

Pan Tadeusz by Adam Mickiewicz (Paperback)

A new annotated translation in elegant English prose of this masterpiece of European Romantic literature. Pan Tadeusz is a classic tale of mystery, war and patriotism set in the turbulent Napoleonic era. First published in 1834 in Paris, it has been called “the last epos” in world literature. The story takes place over the course of five days in 1811 and two days in 1812. The old Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth lies dismembered, erased from the political map of Europe by the great powers of Russia, Prussia, and Austria. A brief ray of hope rekindles national hopes in 1807 when Napoleon establishes the Duchy of Warsaw by the terms of the Treaty of Tilsit and prepares to invade Russia. The oft-overshadowed counterpoint to War and Peace and the 1812 Overture.

What people are saying about this new edition of Pan Tadeusz

"Truly a masterpiece! Christopher Zakrzewski has accomplished the impossible: he has rendered in prose what seemed translatable only in poetry. Poland’s great epic poem can now be read as a delightful historical tale replete with Romantic irony. Zakrzewski’s mastery of the English language is remarkable.”

- Ewa Thompson, Rice University

“In this extraordinarily fine prose rendering, Christopher Zakrzewski brings his own prodigious gifts as a poet and translator to one of the great classics of world literature. The fruit of Zakrzewski’s decades-long labors, this book is a treasure of immeasurable value.”

- Michael D. O’Brien, novelist, painter

“Perfectly smooth, highly expressive, subtly nuanced. Christopher Zakrzewski’s translation does full justice to this brightest jewel in the crown of Polish literature.”

- Kazimierz Braun, Polish author, scholar, theater artist

“Christopher Zakrzewski's English prose is marvelously, not to say magically, consonant with the poetical richness of Mickiewicz's great Polish national saga.”

- Olga Glagoleva, PhD, Russian historian

The War Chronicles of Jerzy Dobiecki by Ian Von Heintze $18.00

The War Chronicles of Jerzy Dobiecki by Ian Von Heintze

The War Chronicles of Jerzy Dobiecki by Ian Von Heintze

This tribute to the life of Jerzy Dobiecki, a Polish cavalry captain with the 18-ty Pułk Ułanów Pomorskich – the 18th Polish Pomeranian Lancers, is a story based on previously archived material, originally written by the Captain in Polish, that has been translated for the first time into English.

The Captain’s chronicles bring to life eye-witness accounts of his regiment’s deployments during the Russo-Polish War between 1919 and 1921, one of several little-publicized wars in English and fought between Poland and her neighbors immediately following the 1914-1918 Great War.

Eighteen years later, as Poland was invaded by Germany in September 1939, from his position on attachment to the Polish Ministry of Military Affairs in Warsaw, Captain Dobiecki kept a diary of battles as they developed across Poland during the first weeks of the Second World War. The diary records events as he, and what remained of the Polish military High Command, were evacuated to neighboring Romania when Poland was additionally overrun by Soviet forces from the east.  His journal sheds light on his subsequent escape from internment across Europe to France and later on to Britain, where he served as a staff officer with the command of the Polish 1st Corps, formed in exile in Scotland.

Following the end of hostilities in Europe in 1945 and upon return to Britain after the fighting on the continent, like thousands of other Poles commissioned under the auspices of the Polish Resettlement Corps, Jerzy had to decide whether to return to his native Poland or whether he should try to somehow rescue and bring to England what was left of his family – now trapped behind the iron curtain in eastern Poland, facing an uncertain future and severity under a Stalinist regime.
