The Hatching Book Summary : An astonishingly inventive and terrifying debut horror novel about the emergence of an ancient race of carnivorous spiders, dormant for ten thousand years but now very much awake. There's a reason we're afraid of spiders... A local guide is leading wealthy tourists through a forest in Peru when a strange, black, skittering mass engulfs him and most of the party. FBI Agent Mike Rich is on a routine stakeout in Minneapolis when he's suddenly called by the director himself to investigate a mysterious plane crash. A scientist studying earthquakes in India registers an unprecedented pattern in local seismic readings. The US president, her defence and national security advisers and her chief of staff are dumped into crisis mode when China "accidentally" drops a nuclear bomb on a desolate region of its own country. As such unsettling occurrences mount, the president's old friend (and her chief of staff's ex-wife), spider expert Melanie Guyer, receives a box at her lab at American University that contains an ancient egg unearthed at a South American dig. So begins The Hatching, the hair-raising saga of a single week in which an ancient, frighteningly predatory species of spider re-emerges in force. When the unusual egg in Melanie Guyer's lab begins to vibrate and crack, she finds herself at the epicentre of this apocalyptic natural disaster. Working closely with her ex-husband and his very powerful boss, she has to find some way to stem the brutal tide of man-eating arachnids.

After the Hatching Oven Book Summary : After the Hatching Oven explores chickens: their evolution as a domesticated species; their place in history, pop culture and industrial agriculture; their exploitation and their liberation. Alexander takes us deep into the world of this common species, examining every conceivable angle: chicken politics, antics, pretenses and pleasures. These poems delight in the mastery of language and intensity by which Alexander has thought his way into the very cells of his subjects through riffs on Ted Hughes’ Crow, a Burger King ad campaign and a public health advisory for bird flu, as well as self-translations.

Skitter Book Summary : Ezekiel Boone continues his shivery and wildly entertaining homage to classic horror novels with Skitter, the second book in his The Hatching series. There's a reason we're afraid of spiders... Ezekiel Boone's astonishingly inventive debut, The Hatching, was a terrifying account of an apocalyptic week in which an ancient breed of carnivorous spiders woke from their 10,000-year slumber and caused carnage around the world. Then suddenly they started to die in waves, leaving shattered human survivors to take a deep, relieved breath, and begin to clean up the mess and rebuild their lives. But spider expert Melanie Guyer, and the crisis team the US president and her chief of staff has assembled around her, are pretty sure that this isn't the last they've seen of these eight-legged predators. Something else is coming, something connected to the eerie stashes of glowing white eggs the spiders left in places like LA's Staples Center--something very very bad. Something that will test the capacity of the entire human race to survive.
Zero Day Book Summary : The wildly entertaining, deeply satisfying finale to Ezekiel Boone's near-apocalyptic monster-horror series. After a long-dormant species of carnivorous spiders hatches and overruns the globe, tens of millions of people have been killed and eaten, or worse...and US president Stephanie Pilgrim has had to order nuclear strikes on major American cities, roads and infrastructure to try to give the survivors a fighting chance. She and her close advisers, along with spider expert Melanie Guyer and her team of scientists, have retreated to a US Navy aircraft carrier off the East Coast to plot their next move when a mutiny breaks out that pits military men looking for a final solution against the president and her allies, who don't think that blowing everything up is the right way to go. Pilgrim and her people escape to the one spider-free zone they're certain of, setting up a White House in Manhattan. But how can they survive with the odds so stacked against them? Still, they have no choice but to try...rallying the unlikeliest set of spider fighters on whom the fate of humanity rests.
The Hatching Trilogy Book Summary : The spiders are coming . . . and we aren't ready. In Ezekiel Boone's terrifying trilogy of thrillers, the world must face facts as giant spiders threaten to tear society apart. In The Hatching, panic begins to sweep the globe as something spreads from India to China, from South America to the United States, and humanity learns that this is only the beginning of something awful. In Skitter, the world order has collapsed. Communities live in quarantine, scared for their lives, while a few precious people try to develop a weapon to defeat the hordes that are crawling over the Earth. And in Zero Day, humanity finally fights back. It's us against them, except some humans don't agree with the strategy which has been chosen. In a desperate attempt to save the human race, one question becomes more important than anything. What's more dangerous: the spiders, or us?
Waiting for the Hatching of a Cockerel Book Summary : In Waiting for the Hatching of a Cockerel the poet assumes the persona of a minstrel (Aminogbe) guided by a divine mentor (Aridon) to narrate and reflect on multifarious experiences. Each vignette or segment of the 36 section poem contributes to the totality of vision that the poet seeks in Aminogbe's journey in the company of Aridon. The long poem is a reflection on the minstrel's self and his people's historical memory and conciousness, but ultimately addresses larger themes such as good, evil, faith and individual responsibility.
