If you want to discover the captivating history of the Battle of Antietam, then pay attention....On September 17th, 1862, US President Abraham Lincoln got the great victory he had desired ever since the outbreak of the American Civil War over a year before. Declaring victory would give him the political breathing space he needed to do something that he had been pondering for some time — freeing the slaves. The great victory Lincoln wanted took place near Antietam Creek in Maryland, near the town of Sharpsburg. The Union called it “The Battle of Antietam,” and the Confederacy referred to it as “The Battle of Sharpsburg.” It is known by both today, but “Antietam” is the more common usage. The thing about the Battle of Antietam was that it wasn’t really a victory for either side. It was more like a bloody stalemate, except for the fact that the troops of the North remained near the battlefield while the rebels moved to a position that was more suited for defense. While the battle certainly was not the resounding victory Lincoln had hoped for, he was a very astute politician. If his troops were still on the field and the enemy was not, he won. Privately, though, Lincoln was both angered and horrified by the results of the battle, or rather the lack of them.

Norman Mailer was one of the towering figures of twentieth-century American letters and an acknowledged master of the essay. Mind of an Outlaw, the first posthumous publication from this outsize literary icon, collects Mailer's most important and representative work in the form that many rank as his most electrifying. As America's foremost public intellectual, Norman Mailer was a ubiquitous presence in our national life - on the airwaves and in print - for more than sixty years. With his supple mind and pugnacious persona, he engaged society more than any other writer of his generation. The trademark Mailer swagger is much in evidence in these pages as he holds forth on culture, ideology, politics, sex, gender, and celebrity, among other topics. Here is Mailer on boxing, Mailer on Hemingway, Mailer on Marilyn Monroe, and, of course, Mailer on Mailer - the one subject that served as the beating heart of all of his nonfiction. From his early essay "A Credo for the Living," published in 1948, when the author was twenty-five, to his final writings in the year before his death, Mailer wrestled with the big themes of his times. He was one of the most astute cultural commentators of the postwar era, a swashbuckling intellectual provocateur who never pulled a punch and was rarely anything less than interesting. Mind of an Outlaw spans the full arc of Mailer's evolution as a writer, including such essential pieces as his acclaimed 1957 meditation on hipsters, "The White Negro"; multiple selections from his seminal collection Advertisements for Myself; and a never-before-published essay on Sigmund Freud. Incendiary, erudite, and unrepentantly outrageous, Norman Mailer was a dominating force on the battlefield of ideas. Featuring an incisive Introduction by Jonathan Lethem, Mind of an Outlaw forms a fascinating portrait of Mailer's intellectual development across the span of his career as well as the preoccupations of 1.

If that wasn't enough, there happens to be a cult of all-male monsters who need a fertile woman to help replenish their numbers.

Faced with what could be her last stand, Kelly decides it is time to finally get it on with the mild-mannered mutant who might be packing more heat than even she can handle.
