The Hike


“The Hike just works. It’s like early, good Chuck Palahniuk. . . . Magary underhands a twist in at the end that hits you like a sharp jab at the bell. . . . It’s just that good.” —NPR.org “A page-turner. . . . Inventive, funny. . . . Quietly profound and touching.”—BoingBoing From the author of The Postmortal, a fantasy saga unlike any you’ve read before, weaving elements of folk tales and video games into a riveting, unforgettable adventure of what a man will endure to return to his family When Ben, a suburban family man, takes a business trip to rural Pennsylvania, he decides to spend the afternoon before his dinner meeting on a short hike. Once he sets out into the woods behind his hotel, he quickly comes to realize that the path he has chosen cannot be given up easily. With no choice but to move forward, Ben finds himself falling deeper and deeper into a world of man-eating giants, bizarre demons, and colossal insects. On a quest of epic, life-or-death proportions, Ben finds help comes in some of the most unexpected forms, including a profane crustacean and a variety of magical objects, tools, and potions. Desperate to return to his family, Ben is determined to track down the “Producer,” the creator of the world in which he is being held hostage and the only one who can free him from the path. At once bitingly funny and emotionally absorbing, Magary’s novel is a remarkably unique addition to the contemporary fantasy genre, one that draws as easily from the world of classic folk tales as it does from video games. In The Hike, Magary takes readers on a daring odyssey away from our day-to-day grind and transports them into an enthralling world propelled by heart, imagination, and survival. From the Hardcover edition.

The Hike


Freddy, Phil and Don are three grumpy old men, travelling at various speeds in the slow lane of retirement, at a loss to understand the mad modern world around them. Their chosen method of escape from all this is a shared weekly hike in the Peak District, come gale, hail, snow or torrential rain. They pass the time bumping into colourful and eccentric locals, but their real passion is bickering among themselves. Not only about the right path to take, but also about where they're all going at the fag end of life. Phil likes to dash up hills trying to beat his personal best, while Freddy plots how to sabotage him - teasing him at leisure and asking deep and difficult questions. Stuck in the middle, Don's only ambition is to stop the squabbling getting out of hand long enough to find a nice pub for lunch. As warm as the wind is cold, as dry as the lashing rain is wet, The Hike is a hilarious tale of bum-warmers, crayfish-fanciers, East German Trabant enthusiasts, bodger philosophers, sticky ginger cake, gorgeous countryside and the subtle art of 'onedownmanship'.

The Hike


Five women set off into the Willamette National Forest in the Oregon Cascades, primed for a hiking trip filled with relaxation and breathtaking scenery. Lexi Reynolds, a happily married real estate mogul in the mood to celebrate, heads the show. With Lexi is her sister, Leni, from New York; her secretary, Susie, who’s about to get married; a friend, Sally, who hopes to clear her head in the mountain air; and Carol Lyn, who doesn’t want to be there at all. Lexi has no idea that earlier in the week her husband hired someone to kill her. In a dark bar, Bart Reynolds made a plan with the odious Freddie “The Ferret” Feretsky. Bart wants his wife dead by the time he’s back from an innocent trip to Vegas, but he pays the Ferret to knock off Lexi—no one else. Bart has no idea that he’s hired a monster that will stop at nothing to fulfill a constant lust for human blood. What began as a peaceful romp through the quiet wilderness is about to turn into a fight to survive for five women who never saw it coming. The Ferret is on their trail, but he may have gotten in over his head. If they survive, this hike may take them all into the mouth of madness.
