‘Three Moments of an Explosion’

Genre-bending story collection an outstanding read

One of the highest compliments that you can pay a writer is that there’s no one else quite like them. They all have their influences, of course – stylistic and/or thematic whiffs of other writers – but there are a few who are able to bring their myriad inspirations together into something unique.

“Our Man in Charleston”

American history is filled with figures whose importance has faded as the years have passed. The textbooks offer little more than condensed summaries of even the most important events. Many of us have snapshot understandings of the most prominent people…and that’s about it. Delving deeper reveals a fascinating collection of characters whose vital roles in the direction taken by our country have been glossed over or even forgotten entirely.
