N.S. Dolkart, Silent Hall

N.S. Dolkart, Silent HallFive refugees from a plague-stricken island cross the continent searching for answers. Instead they find Psander, a wizard whose fortress is invisible to the gods, and who is willing to sacrifice anything -- and anyone -- to keep the knowledge of the wizards safe. 


N.S. Dolkart is a graduate of Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. By day, he leads activities in a nonprofit nursing home in Waltham; in the evenings he cooks with his wife and plays with their two children, and only late at night does he write his tales of magic and Godhood. He doesn’t sleep much. Silent Hall is his first novel.

Adam Ehrlich Sachs, Inherited Disorders

Adam Ehrlich Sachs’ Inherited Disorders is a rueful, absurd, and endlessly entertaining look at a most serious subject—the eternally vexed relations between fathers and sons. In a hundred and seventeen shrewd, surreal vignettes, Sachs lays bare the petty rivalries, thwarted affection, and mutual bafflement that have characterized the filial bond since the days of Davidic kings. A philosopher’s son kills his father and explains his aphorisms to death. A father bequeaths to his son his jacket, deodorant, and political beliefs.
