Review:'The Deep' by Rivers Solomon
Based on singular musical renditions by the Detroit techno group Drexciya and the rap group Clipping, Solomon’s eerily moving fantasy/SF novel creates a vivid mythology around accounts of pregnant slave women drowned during the Middle Passage.

First published in 1999 and revived last year, Michael Cherkas and Larry Hancock’s The Silent Invasion is back with another revised edition of the original material. Filtered through the lens of period anti-communist witch hunts, alien flying saucers, and loopy cult conspiracies, The Silent Invasion is a byzantine sci-fi mystery/thriller that stylishly recreates 1950s middle-class America in all its kooky, paranoid glory. In this 13-page preview, dogged reporter Matt Sinkage is on the run, determined to uncover the truth about an alien invasion he believes is getting ever closer to the White House. The Silent Invasion: The Great FearVol. 2 by Michael Cherkas and Larry Hancock will be published this month by NBM. Click the image above to view the full excerpt.
