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.
