[books] Alembical now available for pre-order

Alembical, an anthology of four novellas from Paper Golem press, is now available for pre-order. This book has some very fine work from Bruce Taylor, jimvanpelt, Ray Vukcevich and myself — in my case, the alternate history novella “America, Such as She Is” about a World War II which ended rather differently. I think it’s one of my very best stories to come into print this year.

So what are you waiting for? Go pre-order a copy!

James Fallows on the presidential debate — Interesting stuff.

WaPo with handy presidential debate fact checking — (Thanks to my brother.)

Some on the right are joining a chorus of criticism over Sarah Palin — Antifeminist cryptoliberals are everywhere. Like George Will, say.
