    Fire on the Mountain PDF/EPUB á Fire on Epub / fire epub, mountain download, Fire on book, Fire on the Mountain ePUBA fantastic blend of two of my favorite genres Alternate History and Science Fiction It is set in 1959 in a vastly different world than the one we know What if in 1859 the legendary abolitionist John Brown had partnered with Harriet Tubman and been successful in his raid on Harper's Ferry This novel imagines an America in which a rebellion of not only black slaves but sympathetic whites oppressed Irish workers and even international Marx supporters rally to do away with slavery against American forces led by Robert E Lee The story is told through letters of participants interspersed with a narrative of contemporary 1959 Nova Africans as those in the former American South are called living in an advanced society in which technical marvels radically different national and international borders and even a successful landing on Mars are possible May sound strange but this is beautifully done by Terry Bisson At only 167 pages this book is a uick and importantly f

    Fire on the Mountain PDF/EPUB á Fire on Epub / fire epub, mountain download, Fire on book, Fire on the Mountain ePUBThe strength of this book I felt was the way it captured the epistolary style of the mid nineteenth century Reading about the Civil War recently it was hard to imagine Abraham Lincoln as the leader of reactionary forces It would have been wonderful if slavery could have been overthrown sooner and the nation spared the bloodiest war in its history At the same time it's hard to fathom how an international coalition of revolutionaries from Ireland Italy Germany etc would be able to find common cause with Haitians Native Americans Mexicans African Americans and white abolitionists to take on the

    Fire on the Mountain PDF/EPUB á Fire on Epub / fire epub, mountain download, Fire on book, Fire on the Mountain ePUBSo this book is a romantic alternate history of the Civil War written by a white man and dedicated to New Afrikan anarchist Kuwasi Balagoon and the Black Liberation Army It's really entertaining I don't think it's as accomplished as Talking Man which is an extraordinarily beautiful book but for people of a certain political persuasion it's immensely appealing Yasmin is an utterly believable character the kind of good person who would be unbelievable to me bc I'm a terrible person if she hadn't suffered a bit and she has; her husband died on a Mars mission We meet her driving through Virginia replicating the drive I took to and from home every few months while I was at college and the technologically advanced semi pastoral racially harmonious society she inhabits seems to me like a marked

    Fire on the Mountain PDF/EPUB á Fire on Epub / fire epub, mountain download, Fire on book, Fire on the Mountain ePUBI met Terry Bisson at the Locus Awards and sincerely wish I had read this before I sat down to share a meal with him Unbeknownst to me his work has often focused on race and social justice This is an alternate history in which John Brown and Harriet Tubman joined forces on the raid at Harper's Ferry Virginia and won In this timeline it is the 1950s and a black utopia exists in the south There are black men going on expeditions to Mars This is interspersed with two accounts from the past with a story in the present of a young widow reconnecting with her daughter I enjoyed the present tense The Mumia Abu Jamal introduction is pretty cool tooFrom intro Have you noticed how much of sci fi is not so much futuristic as it is a projec

    Fire on the Mountain PDF/EPUB á Fire on Epub / fire epub, mountain download, Fire on book, Fire on the Mountain ePUBI like Bisson but of everything I've read from him I liked this the least This wasn't a very satisfying story I like the supposition of what could have been if the Civil War had come about differently but I didn't really see the value in that supposition I didn't feel like I had a chance to get to know the world they lived in or invest enough emotion into the characters to really care The abrupt ending and lack of resolution for the personal lives of the characters also left me a little coldI won't give up on Bisson from a single book but I would not recommend this to someone just starting to explore his works
