    In a future time and place … a Gender War reaches its terrifying zenith. 
      
    Welcome to the future, where women have been infected with a virus that turns them into witches and men have formed a militarized cult to exterminate them—the Witch Doctors. You can survive here, if you're lucky; but only if you swear to one of the dominant practices—Puritanism or witchcraft—and are willing to check your humanity at the door in the process. Because in the future, being a man means donning black and white and carrying a fire-breathing musket—the better to incinerate witches by—while being a woman means to live as the undead or a white-eyed practitioner of the black arts. Either way, humanity is doomed. That is, unless a single man or woman can resist—and in so doing, find the courage to cooperate, even love, again. 
      
    Will it be Satyena, the beautiful young witch prone to kindness and compassion? Patrobus, the salty platoon sergeant with a secret past? How about Aluka, the intersex witch-doctor caught between worlds? Dive into these tales of the Sex War to find out—tales told in the dystopian tradition of Fahrenheit 451 and Logan's Run—stories at once brutal and beatific, halting and surreal. Do it today, before the future they portend becomes reality …

Here, you will meet mighty warriors, seductive sorceresses, ambitious monarchs, and cunning courtesans. Here, you will journey through the vast variety of settings Africa offers, and inspires. Here, you will savor what the writings of the modern-day griots have to offer: journeys through limitless vistas of the imagination, with a touch of color and a taste of soul.

    Hailed a “Best Book of the Year” by NPR, Publishers Weekly, Vulture, and the New York Public Library, Some Trick is now in paperback
    For sheer unpredictable brilliance, Gogol may come to mind, but no author alive today takes a reader as far as Helen DeWitt into the funniest, most far-reaching dimensions of possibility. Her jumping-off points might be statistics, romance, the art world’s piranha tank, games of chance and games of skill, the travails of publishing, or success. “Look,” a character begins to explain, laying out some gambit reasonably enough, even in the face of situations spinning out to their utmost logical extremes, where things prove “more complicated than they had first appeared” and “at 3 a.m. the circumstances seem to attenuate.” In various ways, each tale carries DeWitt’s signature poker-face lament regarding the near-impossibility of the life of the mind when one is made to pay to have the time for it, in a world so sadly “taken up with all sorts of paraphernalia superfluous, not to say impedimental, to ratiocination.”

    Impertinent Strangers 
     
    When an impertinent stranger is thrown into Fitzwilliam Darcy's path, he declares her tolerable but not handsome enough to tempt him. Yet, it is all he can do not to think of her. 
     
    Upon first making Mr. Darcy's acquaintance, Miss Elizabeth Bennet is quite fascinated with him. Then she discovers that the gentleman is haughty and above his company, and she wants nothing to do with him. Still, the prospect of spending time in each other's company is beyond their power to resist. Will Darcy and Elizabeth stop denying the truth to themselves and find in the other what's been missing in their lives? 
     
    Praise for Impertinent Strangers:

    ❝There is a beautiful reunion between the pair at Longbourn. Darcy's spoken word is sweet, romantic, and passionate. And his proposal is truly romantic! A great read overall.❞ 
     
     
    Together in Perfect Felicity 
     
    Miss Elizabeth Bennet believes the state of matrimony is not something to be entered into lightly. She is determined to do anything rather than marry without affection. On the other hand, indulging her cousin's fanciful marital scheme is harmless enough. What does she have to lose? Other than perhaps, her heart? 
     
    Fitzwilliam Darcy had never been so bewitched by any woman as he was by Elizabeth. Owing to the inferiority of her circumstances in comparison to his own, he makes up his mind to admire her from afar. The mind, however, does not always rule, especially in the game of love. Will Darcy lose his heart to Elizabeth, and in so doing, end up winning hers? 
     
     
    Praise for Together in Perfect Felicity: 
     
    ❝I read this delightful story in a single evening and enjoyed every moment. It is wonderful how the original text and occurrences from P&P were weaves into this novel.❞ 
     
    ❝Different story. I liked it a lot. Highly recommend this book to a Jane Austen fanfic reader.❞ 
     
     
    Bonus Novelette - A Night with Mr. Darcy to Remember 
     
    A titillating tale of two strangers in the night. Because now and then, a short and steamy romantic escape with our dear couple is what you're searching for. 
     
     
    Praise for A Night with Mr. Darcy to Remember: 
     
    ❝The backstory was gripping, tugging severely on my heartstrings. The story had depth and thoughtfulness, in the short span of a novelette, which amazed me. It felt like nothing I have ever read before.❞ 
     
    ❝Very romantic and suggestive without graphic details. Loved Darcy!❞
