    A photobook which captures the various faces and individuals within a community, Tsutomu Yamagata’s Thirteen Orphans brings together a series of portraits of individuals whom he met around a lily pond known as Shinobazu-no-ike located in Tokyo’s Ueno district. Here, much like the title which serves as a reference to a hand played in mahjong, the individuals photographed serve as a document. A Dangerous Inheritance Brenda Morris has no idea that her father, Gaheris, has a secret life. He is the Rat: a key member of the curious cabal known as the Thirteen Orphans. When she is nineteen, Brenda learns that all the omens show that Brenda will be his : Obsidian Tiger Books.

      For September I read City of Orphans by Avi. City of Orphans follows Maks, a 13 year old who sells papers to contribute to his family. Maks meets Willa when Maks is getting chased by "Plug Uglies" who are a gang who beat up and rob "newsies." Willa lives on her own in a alleyway.4/5. As evocative and moving as Charles de Lint’s Newford books, with the youthful protagonists and exciting action of Mercedes Lackey’s fantasies, Thirteen Orphans makes our world today as excitingly strange and unfamiliar as any fantasy realmand grants readers a glimpse of a fantasy world founded by ancient Chinese lore and far as college freshman Brenda Morris knows, there is.

    Jane Lindskold is an American author of more than 20 novels, most of which are in the science fiction and fantasy genres. One of her most popular series of novels is the Firekeeper saga that has six titles, she has also written an archeological fantasy adventure set in 19th century Egypt, and a modern day fantasy set in Las Vegas. The work he named “Thirteen Orphans”, which is the name of the strongest hand in the game of mahjong. In most games, we collect series of the same type of cards and melds, but in this hand all the cards are unrelated to the others.
