Ellen Klages Books Overview

The Green Glass Sea

It is 1943, and 11 year old Dewey Kerrigan is traveling west on a train to live with her scientist father but no one, not her father nor the military guardians who accompany her, will tell her exactly where he is. When she reaches Los Alamos, New Mexico, she learns why: he’s working on a top secret government program. Over the next few years, Dewey gets to know eminent scientists, starts tinkering with her own mechanical projects, becomes friends with a budding artist who is as much of a misfit as she is and, all the while, has no idea how the Manhattan Project is about to change the world. This book s fresh prose and fascinating subject are like nothing you ve read before.

White Sands, Red Menace

It is 1946. World War II is over ended by the atomic bomb that Dewey Kerrigan’s and Suze Gordon s scientist parents helped build. Dewey s been living with the Gordons since before the war s end, before her father died, moving south with them to Alamogordo, New Mexico. At the White Sands Missile Range, Phil Gordon is working on rockets that will someday go to the moon; at home, Terry Gordon is part of the scientists movement against the Bomb. Dewey and Suze have conflicts of their own. Where does a girl who likes physics and math fit in? How do you know the right time to speak up and the right time to keep your head down? And, most important of all: What defines a family?

Portable Childhoods

Emerging from a unique and powerful voice, this innovative collection offers a tantalizing glimpse of what lies hidden just beyond the ordinary, skirting the border between childhood and adulthood. Mysticism, heroism, cruelty, and compassion thread through these multifaceted tales which range from the origins of the Manhattan Project to a culinary object lesson, from 1950s corruption to a slight glitch in Creation. Collected here for the first time and including an excerpt from her breakout first novel The Green Glass Sea, these stories are timeless and delightful, chilling and beautiful.

What Remains

What Remains, published in conjunction with the appearance of Ellen Klages and Geoff Ryman as the Guests of Honor at WisCon 33, features three tales, two of them by Geoff Ryman and one by Ellen Klages. In Ryman’s ”No Bad Thing,” a certain brilliant, world famous scientist has become a vampire and duly turns his intellectual gifts in a new direction; and in ”Care,” a story set in the fascinating world of Belo Horizonte, a little boy’s father stands with him on the Edge of the world looking down at Rio, shows him how to walk off the Edge, then disappears. In Ellen Klages’s original novelette ”Echoes of Aurora,” Jo Norwood goes back to her hometown to bury her father and meets a lovely, mysterious woman named Aurora, and through the summer, Jo and Rory make passionate love, poetry, and a story together a story that begins ”Once upon a time, you kissed me.” What Remains also includes Eileen Gunn’s interview of Geoff Ryman and Debbie Notkin’s interview of Ellen Klages.

Harbin Hot Springs

In this lucid and entertaining book, Ellen Klages tells the story of Harbin Hot Springs form its earliest days as a gathering place for Native American shamans through the many, varied phases of its history…
a spa for Victorian invalids, a boxer’s training camp, a family resort and a hippie commune…
to its current renaissance as a New Age community and spiritual center.
