An Early Science Fiction Novel that is still Educational and Enjoyable “Imagine a vast sheet of paper on which straight Lines, Triangles, Squares, Pentagons, Hexagons, and other figures, instead of remaining fixed in their places, move freely about, on or in the surface, but without the power of rising above or sinking below it, very much like shadows—only hard with luminous edges—and you will then have a pretty correct notion of my country and countrymen. ” ― Edwin A. Abbott, Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions Flatland by Edwin A. Abbot is a curious work of science and mathematical fiction. In the novel, the narrator named A. Square is a mathematician and resident of the two-dimensional Flatland. In Flatland, women are thin, straight lines (the lowliest of shapes), and men may have any number of sides, depending on their social status.

It is the year 2110 when a man awakens next to the Winooski River in Vermont with a severe case of amnesia. He soon encounters the acting leader of Vermont, King Henry, and his party, and is told that Vermont is now a fiercely independent republic and that he is a “Flatlander,” or one who is purportedly from the Old Country. The name sticks. But there is a problem: many Vermonters have a seething hatred for Flatlanders. Henry eventually agrees to offer Flatlander citizenship, but only under the condition that he successfully complete ten quests to better the overall Republic of Vermont. He reluctantly obliges to fulfill these quests, which are made even more difficult because of the prejudices against his kind. As Flatlander embarks on a journey full of strange yet endearing characters, creatures, and legends, a magical world is brought to life as he comes closer to discovering who he once was, while piecing together an entirely new identity. In this humorous fantasy adventure, cultures and customs collide within a medieval-like Vermont as Flatlander attempts to fulfill his ten assigned quests, uncover the mystery of his past, and find his place in the world. Included are 33 beautiful black and white illustrations by Sam Balling.

While the baby boomer generation gets a lot more press (not to mention prestige) these days, author Peter F. Young isn't ready to let war babies-those born between 1938 and 1946-fade into the night without a turn in the spotlight. Like others in his generation, Young came of age during the early years of rock 'n' roll-and promptly fell in love with the so-called "devil's music." Like scores of other kids in small towns across America, Young not only worshipped rock stars, he dreamed of becoming one himself. But, unlike most of those other kids, he almost made it. In this charming, irreverent, and hilarious memoir, Young recalls his boyhood and teenage years in the small towns of rural Vermont and Northern New York State, home of the almost-famous Mike & the Ravens. Despite their shoddy equipment and decidedly un-rock 'n' roll upbringings, Young and his band mates managed to get signed by a record company, become regionally famous, pull a ton of stunts-including causing a rock album to be played over a church's robust belfry speaker system at 2:00 a.m. and land in jail like real rock stars-and still grow up to become productive, contributing members of society.

A group of three friends who made music in a house in Lubbock, Texas, recorded an album that wasn't released and went their separate ways into solo careers. That group became a legend and then—twenty years later—a band. The Flatlanders—Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Butch Hancock—are icons in American music, with songs blending country, folk, and rock that have influenced a long list of performers, including Robert Earl Keen, the Cowboy Junkies, Ryan Bingham, Terry Allen, John Hiatt, Hayes Carll, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, and Lyle Lovett. In The Flatlanders: Now It's Now Again, Austin author and music journalist John T. Davis traces the band's musical journey from the house on 14th Street in Lubbock to their 2013 sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall. He explores why music was, and is, so important in Lubbock and how earlier West Texas musicians such as Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison, as well as a touring Elvis Presley, inspired the young Ely, Gilmore, and Hancock. Davis vividly recreates the Lubbock countercultural scene that brought the Flatlanders together and recounts their first year (1972–1973) as a band, during which they recorded the songs that, decades later, were released as the albums More a Legend Than a Band and The Odessa Tapes. He follows the three musicians through their solo careers and into their first decade as a (re)united band, in which they cowrote songs for the first time on the albums Now Again and Hills and Valleys and recovered their extraordinary original demo tape, lost for forty years. Many roads later, the Flatlanders are finally both a legend and a band.
