Forging the Hammer.
Book Review: NOS4A2, by Joe Hill
At some point in the 1980s, a girl nicknamed Victoria, (Brat to her father) lives in a troubled home. Her parents don’t get along, and to escape the arguments, she rides her bike through the woods, where she finds a covered bridge. It’s not really a real bridge, however: it’s a conduit that allows her to find lost objects. She’s soon after introduced to a new world: there’s certain people with abilities to enter another world, one that’s split away from the real world, and powered by their imaginations. Armed with a totem, they can use this conduit to accomplish certain things. In Vic’s case, it’s her bike. Maggie, a librarian, it’s scrabble tiles. For Manx, it’s his terrible car. When Vic and Manx’s worlds collide, it sets them on a path that’s filled with madness, terror and violence.

Open-die forging can produce forgings from a few pounds to over 150 tons.Called open-die because the metal is not confined laterally by impression dies for forging, this process works gradually starting stock into the desired shape, most commonly between flat-faced dies. At the upper end of the range of sizes, forgings without matrix are only limited by the size of the starting stock, ie, the largest ingot that can be cast. In practice, open-die forging comprises many process variations, allowing a very wide range of shapes and sizes to produce.
