SEPTEMBER BOOKS OF THE MONTH

***

 “THE GENIUS AND THE KGB” by RWISA Author, Wanda Adams Fischer

(Short Story)

The Genius and the KGB cover

In the late 1960s, the Soviet Union dubbed Aleksi Zhakarov a genius. They removed him from his parents and sent him for special education. He earned a doctorate by the time when most people graduate from college. However, he was never allowed out of protective custody to live a normal life. He always wondered what the rest of the world looked like. Thanks to a major conference in Munich, he meets other scientists, one of whom helps him escape from his KGB guards. He arrives at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, meets several other Soviet defectors, but remains convinced that the KGB is still after him. This story delves into his paranoia, what happens to him, and how it affects his MIT co-workers.

“2-27-70”  by RWISA Author, John Podlaski

(Short Story)

2-27-70 by John Podlaski

I grew up in the city of Detroit and was taught that my heritage and strong family values were important. Every year, our birthdays were a cherished event within the family – especially when it was dad’s special day – we always celebrated his with great fanfare, a special family dinner and dessert.

However, on February 27, 1970, my dad’s birthday, that annual tradition was broken when I was forced into a situation beyond my control. I had to leave home and the family gave me an emotional send off, but the thought and possibility of my never returning devastated them.

This short story follows me on this one special day. Thousands of young men preceded me on this path, and tens of thousands never made it home. Find out where I was heading and why I had to go.

    2. My Dear Yvette,
      I am just getting around to this board. It is very busy here in my home because of repairmen. Just want to say I so enjoyed talking with you and Wanda. I enjoyed the books. The stories touch on the relevance of having both eyes open to what is truly going on in the world, and it was a pleasure for me.

  7. Congratulations, Wanda and Yvette, for being featured for the January Books of the Month. “Handprints” was a haunting book about two women who form a friendship in a mental institution. I loved the idea that one of the women called herself Edna St. Vincent Millay, a poet who was the voice for feminism activism. I’ve also downloaded “Hype” and have put it on my reading list for January.

  12. Congratulations, Marian and Dennis! I just purchased the first book in your series, Dennis, and I have Marian’s book on my kindle already. I’ll be on the road a lot this summer, so I hope to read them both. I’m finishing one book now and then have one other book to read before I get to yours. 🙂
