In April 2007, a group of men pulled seventeen-year-old Du’a Khalil Aswad into a mob. They proceeded to stone and beat her to death, a supposed "honor" killing for allegedly falling... More > in love with a man of a different faith. Several camera phones recorded the entire incident from the front row, and videos later surfaced online. One month later, popular filmmaker Joss Whedon expressed his despair and outrage at the misogyny in all cultures on a fan-run blog. "Because it’s no longer enough to be a decent person," he wrote. "It’s no longer enough to shake our heads and make concerned grimaces at the news. True enlightened activism is the only thing that can save humanity from itself. I’ve always had a bent towards apocalyptic fiction, and I’m beginning to understand why. I look and I see the earth in flames. Her face was nothing but red."

More > literary confection to be savoured (think Nabokov’s Pale Fire and Rérez-Reverte’s The Club Dumas), this uncompromising and unconventional epistolary novel of beginnings is intended to be VIEWED as well as read. Eschewing a “plot” in the ordinary sense, this book can, nonetheless, be described as a quest for the Star of Bethlehem. It knits together unearthed oral memoirs, newspaper clippings, and myriad letters and journal pages from across two millennia, interspersed with the author’s own observations. These documents are presented with an abundance of literary apparatus that (with tongue firmly in cheek) challenges the structure of the conventional novel, while flirting with the steampunk and crossover genres, and including a cameo appearance by the Great Detective himself—30 years after The Crucible of Life.< Less
