Reading Recommendation: Flying in the Heart of the Lafayette Escadrille, by James Van Pelt

I’m extremely pleased that this collection is now available.  Jim is one of my favorite short-work authors and if he’s not also one of yours, then I suspect you haven’t read him.  I actually got a chance to do the introduction for this book.  It’s the first time I’ve ever been asked to do an introduction.

It was fun.

Reading all of the stories in the book was even more fun.

You can buy this directly from Fairwood Press or I’m pretty sure it can be had from other online booksellers as well.  It’s really phenomenal.

Jim’s writing is rich, classic, and literary and yet it drips with a sense of the supernatural.  If you can get it in physical form, the cover is worth having,  The art is by Elena Vizerskaya.


I am a writer, public speaker, and a futurist. I’m interested in how new technologies might change us and our world, particularly for the better.

I’m excited about my most recent book series, a duology called “Ruby’s Song” which includes the books The Creative Fire and The Diamond Deep, both published by Pyr.  I’m also doing a non-fiction blog series, Backing into Eden, which comes out roughly twice a month and explores ways to care for the world, now and in the future.
