1604860871 It?s 1959 in socialist Virginia. The Deep South is an independent Black nation called Nova Africa. The second Mars expedition is about to touch down on the red planet. And a pregnant scientist is climbing the Blue Ridge in search of her great-great grandfather, a teenage slave who fought with John Brown and Harriet Tubman?s guerrilla army.

 6.  The Left Left Behind (Outspoken Authors)
Bisson, Terry PM Press 1604860863 / 9781604860863 PAPERBACK New 
1604860863 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Radical Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 144 p. Outspoken Authors. Audience: General/trade. Hugo and Nebula award-winner Terry Bisson is best known for his short stories, which range from the southern sweetness of Bears Discover Fire to the alienated aliens of They re Made Out of Meat. He is also a 1960 s New Left vet with a history of activism and an intact (if battered) radical ideology. Left Behind novels (about the so-called Rapture in which all the born-agains ascend straight to heaven) are among the bestselling Christian books in the US, describing in lurid detail the adventures of those left behind to battle the Anti-Christ. Put Bisson and the Born-Agains together, and what do you get? Left Left Behind--a sardonic, merciless, tasteless, take-no-prisoners satire of the entire apocalyptic enterprise that spares no one--predatory preachers, goth lingerie, Pacifica radio, Indian casinos, gangsta rap, and even art cars at Burning Man. Plus: "Special Relativity, " a one-act drama that answers the question: When Albert Einstein, Paul Robeson, and J. Edgar Hoover are raised from the dead at an anti-Bush rally, which one wears the dress? As with all Outspoken Author books, there is a deep interview and autobiography: at length, in-depth, no-holds-barred and all-bets off: an extended tour though the mind and work, the history and politics of our Outspoken Author. Surprises are promised.
