Finalist for the 2018 Young Lions Fiction Award:
“The Young Lions Fiction Award not only celebrates the rising stars in the world of literature, it also ensures that readers can look forward to a bright future of compelling and original stories,” said Vincent Piazza, Co-Chair of the Young Lions Committee. “It is my honor to congratulate this year’s finalists on their stunning works.”
Averell “Ace” Smith
Praise from the Wall Street Journal:
“This short, action-packed narrative illuminates one of those footnotes that dot the history of the game but are seldom explored in depth. Here the footnote explodes with unexpected vitality.”
Review from Canadian Literature:
“A compelling page-turner of an academic text which provides a feminist counter-narrative about the development of the popular Western.”
Gregory J. Wallance
Praise from Signature:
“Wallance paints a portrait of a complex woman who performed heroic work during difficult times. For those looking for a book about espionage that has real human lives at stake, this little-known story is a tremendous read.”
Review in Marx & Philosophy:
“Frank Ruda’s Abolishing Freedom is both philosophically and stylistically daring.”
Review from Allegra Laboratory:
“A book for reference, a possible warning, a promotion of more social interactions between people based on sharing human milk and, certainly, stimulating for thought and research.”
Review from Strategy Page:
“An amusing yet informative tale, which makes for good reading, and tells us something about how Army officers are made.”
