The Pitcher and the Dictator

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.”




Victoria Lamont

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.”



The Woman Who Fought an Empire

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.”



Abolishing Freedom

Frank Ruda

Review in Marx & Philosophy:

“Frank Ruda’s Abolishing Freedom is both philosophically and stylistically daring.”



White Gold

Susan Falls

“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.”
