    Ragel Gumm lives with his in-laws and supports himself by winning seemingly random newspaper puzzle contests. In fact, his peaceful 1950s small town world is an illusion. The time is really 1998 and his idle newspaper game is preserving Earth's military dictatorship from defeat by secessionist colonists on the Moon. Pringle, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels 28.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
