Summary

Though the Civil War short story "An Echo of Antietam" marks a notable departure from the utopian fantasy that helped author Edward Bellamy rise to literary acclaim, it highlights similar themes of community and solidarity. In the tale, a young man signs up to fight for the Union forces. Though he is initially ambivalent about this decision, he ultimately comes to appreciate the virtue of sacrificing oneself to a just cause.
Available since: 11/30/2021.

    When doubt is cast on a presidential election, it sets off an “intricate, skillfully spun” tale of intrigue in this near-future political thriller (Publishers Weekly). At the dawn of the twenty-first century, the CIA has been disbanded and a secret society has taken hold of powerful positions across Washington. After a long and contentious campaign, President Bedford Lockwood is celebrating his reelection. But the revelry is cut short when it’s discovered that his over-zealous aides may have tampered with the vote. On the eve of the Inauguration, Lockwood’s rival—the archconservative Franklin Mallory—presents evidence of fraud. When Lockwood refuses to take the oath of office, it sets in motion a series of events that may destroy him, his party, and the Constitution. From this catastrophic crisis, acclaimed author and former Washington journalist Charles McCarry weaves a smart, tense, and eerily prescient political thriller.

    Claire Martino has a fairy-tale life anyone would envy, with a noble upbringing, a crown prince for a fiancé, and a promising future ahead of her as Noston’s most powerful mage. That is, until everything crashes down around her when all of the family magical talent goes to her half sister, Charlotte, instead. With her engagement broken and reputation tarnished, Claire flees the only life she’s ever known and sets off on an adventure to find the freedom she’s craved all along. It’s anything but easy, but fortunately for a girl with dignity, talent, and a whole lot of bravery, nothing is impossible...even turning out to be a video game character! Much to her surprise, Claire finds herself periodically teleported to modern-day Tokyo where Claire Martino is no more than a side character in the classic dating sim game Upstart: Eternal Love. Yet even that won’t stop Claire from saving the day so she can unlock the good ending of her own route.

I’m not fat, mind you, but you can tell I like french fries, so there’s that.He took me home, and I enjoyed the hottest birthday sex of my life. Well, until it came to a screeching and rather unwelcome halt.There’s nothing quite like being interrupted mid-ride with a little voice asking, “What are you doing to my daddy?”Just kill me now . . . or so I thought.Come to find out, the man I rode like a bull at the rodeo is my new landlord.
