The Amazing Interlude

by Mary Roberts Rinehart

At times, this novel approaches the scope and depth of a Great Work. For example, I found myself reflecting on Dickens' Tale of Two Cities at least once or twice. The themes of Rinehart's book are also of courage and sacrifice. But in the end, this is a simply a very good novel that provides a first hand description of the first world war, the American perspective and the devastation of Europe.

'Oh, Well, You Know How Women Are!' AND 'Isn't That Just Like a Man!'

by Irvin S. Cobb

This pair of essays represent a fascinating glimpse of the gender rights rhetoric of the early twentieth century. Rambling, by turns patronizing, sexist, admiring and reverential, the authors reflect on many topics from suffrage to fashion. A quick read that is both humorous and thought-provoking.

The K-Factor

by Harry Harrison

Yes, "societics" bears a striking resemblance to "psychohistory", but there the similarity between Harrison and Asimov ends. K-factor is a tightly written, plot driven, short story in which science plays a small role. The ending may surprise you.

The Repairman

by Harry Harrison

There are faint humorous foreshadowings of the Stainless-Steel Rat in this short story. The ending does feel a little abrupt, mostly because the story and the protagonist are so much fun.
