Fire on the Mountain, by Terry Bisson: What might life be like today if John Brown's 1859 raid on Harper's Ferry, aimed at ending slavery, had been successful? Join a lively discussion of this provocative speculative novel, available at Revolution Books.
“You don’t forget Bisson’s characters, even well after you’ve finished his books . . . [this book] does for the Civil War what Philip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castledid for World War II.” —George Alec Effinger, author, When Gravity Falls
“Few works have moved me as deeply, as thoroughly . . . With this single poignant story, Bisson molds a world as sweet as banana cream pies, and is briny as hot tears."
—Mumia Abu Jamal, death row prisoner and author, Live from Death Row
