"A remarkable debut. Valencia writes with a sinuous maturity, a boldness of vision far beyond his years. In Lord of California, this beyond-seeing is literal: wild, impressive, at times menacing invention about what a separatist California might look like begins to look downright prescient, and Valencia's portraitist skill with his characters lifts them off the page, too."--Ryan McIlvain, author of Elders Set in a future where the United States has dissolved and California is its own independent republic, Lord of California follows the struggles of the Temple family as they work at running a farm on a nationalized land parcel in the central San Joaquin Valley. When the family patriarch, Elliot, dies, it's revealed that he had been keeping five separate families, and in the aftermath of their discovery, his widows and children must come together to keep from losing all they have. But their livelihood is threatened when Elliot's estranged son tries to blackmail them, unleashing a series of violent confrontations between different factions of the family. A sparse family drama reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy, combined with the intimate first-person narratives of Kazuo Ishiguro, Lord of California is a powerful debut novel. Andrew Valencia was born in Fresno, California, and graduated with a BA in English from Stanford, where he was awarded a Levinthal Tutorial by the Creative Writing Program. He holds an MFA in fiction from the University of South Carolina, and his work has appeared or is forthcoming in Silk Road Review, the Ploughshares blog, Day One, The Southern Pacific Review, The Fat City Review, Crack the Spine, and other publications.

William Taylor (1821-1902) was a Methodist minister specializing in "street preaching" in Baltimore and Washington, D.C., when the Methodist church sent him to California as a missionary evangelist in 1849. He remained in the West for seven years, going on to become one of the church's most tireless worldwide evangelists. He later conducted crusades in Canada, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, South America, and South Africa. In 1884 he was named Missionary Bishop for Africa and he focused his energies on missionary activities on that continent. Taylor spent his last years in California, the site of his first mission. California life illustrated (1858) expands on his reminiscences in Seven years' street preaching in San Francisco (1857). He describes his voyage to California and gives details of family life, social life, politics and church history in San José, Santa Cruz, and Sacramento. He comments at length on California agriculture and mineral resources and offers a chapter on mining camp life. After founding the Powell Street church, Taylor explains, he undertook a mission to sailors in San Francisco which left him so burdened by debt that he returned east to publish books and conduct revivals in the hope of putting his finances in order.

"The hand-colored plates are of exceptional quality and the engraved frontispiece is one of the glories of Gold Rush literature." (Kurutz, The California Gold Rush, 242). "Despite some bibliographical confusion, as discussed by Kurutz ... [the three plates] would seem to be all the illustrations intended to have been issued with the book. This guide is a perfectly serious one intended to be of actual use to an English emigrant. Opening with a review of English law and regulations concerning ships carrying emigrants, it soon moves to a general description of the area and its history, mostly drawn from secondary sources, such as Frémont and Vizetelly. Written principally for the poor - those for whom 'the mind succumbs to the stomach' - the author puts forth the proposition that those who can successfully practice a trade in California will ultimately prosper more than those who merely seek gold." (Sloan).

For two decades in Long Beach, California, August Hunter operates as one of the city's most powerful gang lords. But as his life alternates between the violence of the streets and the brutality of the California prison system, Hunter struggles in his heart and mind with the senselessness of the gang scene. Hunter finally surrenders to the greater forces that have been at work in his life, and he encounters the real "Lord of Long Beach." The book reads like a modern-day urban Exodus, from his bitter childhood in the housing projects of New Orleans, to his move with his mother to Long Beach and his rise through the youth gangs, to the pinnacle of his power in the adult gangs and the suffering of three prison terms, and finally to his emotional collapse and rebirth. Hunter's story is a valuable one-for young men and women at risk on the streets, for those in our prisons and jails who find little hope there, and for anyone seeking to make a stronger connection between their everyday life and their faith.
