The Approaching Storm: Roosevelt, Wilson, Addams, and Their Clash over America’s Future

Lanctot offers a well-written presentation on a familiar topic, which general readers might compare to Justus Doenecke’s Nothing Less Than War and G. J. Meyer’s The World Remade.

After the Sun

Set in a dystopian universe, the stories describe each character’s attempt to find meaning and intimacy as an antidote to loneliness and alienation. Eika’s ability to combine foreboding with magic realism generates excitement in this English-language debut.
