His grandfather tells him he must watch for this bear - or something like it - because dreams are Wakan, sacred signs from the creator.

Manhattan is the tale of a young French scholar who travels to the United States in 1965 on a Fulbright Fellowship to consult the manuscripts of beloved authors. In Yale University's Beinecke Library, tantalized by the conversational and epistolary brilliance of a fellow researcher, she is lured into a picaresque and tragic adventure. Meanwhile, back in France, her children and no-nonsense mother await her return. A young European intellectual's first contact with America and the city of New York are the background of this story. The experience of Manhattan haunts this labyrinth of a book as, over a period of thirty-five years, its narrator visits and revisits Central Park and a half-buried squirrel, the Statue of Liberty and a never again to be found hotel in the vicinity of Morningside Heights: a journey into memory in which everything is never the same. Traveling from library to library, France to the United States, Shakespeare to Kafka to Joyce, Manhattan deploys with gusto all the techniques for which Cixous's fiction and essays are known: rapid juxtapositions of time and place, narrative and description, analysis and philosophical reflection. It investigates subjects Cixous has spent her life probing: reading, writing, and the "omnipotence-other" seductions of literature; a family's flight from Nazi Germany and postcolonial Algeria; childhood, motherhood, and, not least, the strange experience of falling in love with, as Jacques Derrida writes, "a counterfeit genius."
"Steampunk action that starts with a jump and never lets up!" - D.J. Butler, author of THE KIDNAP PLOT and WITCHY EYE On the scorched world of Schism, all life survives in huge trenches, protected from the heat of the torrid sun. In these chasms, human colonists often find themselves at odds with the indigenous humanoids called Spiders. Jake’s airship, powered by ancient technology, takes advantage of the unique terrain, but makes him valuable to both sides of local warring tribes. The captain and crew of the Sky Turtle are forced to risk everything in a fight between these followers of opposing elemental magics. If they fail, it could cost them everything.
Schism is a planet divided physically, racially, and politically. In this difficult environment with limited energy resources, steam power is often the best adaptation.
Will it be enough to combat the arcane and alien forces using them as a pawn in an age-old war?
