'ENTHRALLING . . . A JOURNEY AS PERILOUS AS IT IS ENLIGHTENING' Guardian on The Book of Koli The journey through M. R. Carey's 'immersive, impeccably rendered world' (Kirkus) continues in The Trials of Koli - the second book of the Rampart trilogy. Koli has been cast from his village and into the strange and deadly forest beyond. But he heard a story, once. A story about lost London, and the mysterious tech of the old times that was there. And if Koli can find it, there may be a way for him to redeem himself - by saving what's left of humanity. Praise for The Trials of Koli: 'This series just gets better and better. Clever, compassionate and genuinely immersive' Joanne Harris 'A broken world that is both marvellously expansive and claustrophobically menacing' Publisher's Weekly 'If you loved M.R. Carey's The Book of Koli, you will love The Trials of Koli just as much, if not more . . . Absorbing, stunning, and emotionally rich' Locus 'This is a bold, unique world - be prepared to be engrossed' SciFiNow Look out for the final novel in the Rampart trilogy: The Fall of Koli

'Beautiful . . . Gripping, engaging, and absolutely worth the time it takes to burrow yourself into its reality. I can't recommend it highly enough' Seanan McGuire EVERYTHING THAT LIVES HATES US . . . Beyond the walls of the small village of Mythen Rood lies an unrecognisable landscape. A place where overgrown forests are filled with choker trees and deadly seeds that will kill you where you stand. And if they don't get you, the Shunned men will. Koli has lived in Mythen Rood his entire life. He believes the first rule of survival is that you don't venture too far beyond the walls. He's wrong. The Book of Koli begins a breathtakingly original new trilogy set in a strange and deadly world of our own making. 'A captivating start to what promises to be an epic post-apocalyptic fable . . . Narrator Koli's inquisitive mind and kind heart make him the perfect guide to Carey's immersive, impeccably rendered world' Kirkus 'Carey writes with compassion and fire - strange and surprising and humane' Lauren Beukes 'An ingenious, dizzily provocative novel . . . Carey invents a fantastic far-future world, finding humanity in unlikely places' Helen Marshall, World Fantasy Award-winning author 'A thought-provoking and deeply engaging story' C. A. Fletcher, author of A Boy and his Dog At The End of the World Look out for the next novels in the trilogy: THE TRIALS OF KOLI and THE FALL OF KOLI

The study of literature and culture is marked by various distinct understandings of passages – both as phenomena and critical concepts. These include the anthropological notion of rites of passage, the shopping arcades (Passagen) theorized by Walter Benjamin, the Middle Passage of the Atlantic slave trade, present-day forms of migration and resettlement, and understandings of translation and adaptation. Whether structural, semiotic, spatial/geographic, temporal, existential, societal or institutional, passages refer to processes of (status) change. They enable entrances and exits, arrivals and departures, while they also foster moments of liminality and suspension. They connect and thereby engender difference. Passages is an exploration of passages as contexts and processes within which liminal experiences and encounters are situated. It aims to foster a concept-based, interdisciplinary dialogue on how to approach and theorize such a term. Based on the premise that concepts travel through times, contexts and discursive settings, a conceptual approach to passages provides the authors of this volume with the analytical tools to (re-)focus their research questions and create a meaningful exchange across disciplinary, national and linguistic boundaries. Contributions from senior scholars and early-career researchers whose work focuses on areas such as cultural memory, performativity, space, media, (cultural) translation, ecocriticism, gender and race utilize specific understandings of passages and liminality, reflecting on their value and limits for their research.
