On Feb. 9, the hardcover of Iain Pears’ ARCADIA will be released. Critic L. Shapley Bassen discusses this fascinating saga in a new review:
ARCADIA is Faber & Faber’s first novel to have been written primarily with digital readers in mind. The British publishers believe it to be the first book of its kind in existence. Shortly after its iPad appearance, the 596-page hardback was published last September 3rd (UK). This February, 2016, Knopf presents a 528-page US edition. “While the hardback is 180,000 words, the app comes to 250,000, offering additional stories and expanding those told in the hardback.”

Two Cities Review had the pleasure of publishing some cross-genre work we absolutely love in our first issue – poems by L. S. Bassen within artwork by Mike Stanko. These works are part of a collection called “Scene & Said” and are stunning in their visual quality and poignant words. To read them for yourself, see the image below or take a look back at our original issue.
We had the pleasure of interviewing both artists about their work together. We hope you enjoy hearing what they have to say.

My alternate-history novel, SUMMER OF THE LONG KNIVES, published by Typhoon Media, is now available for e-book readers and hard copy can be pre-ordered as well at Smashwords and Amazon… Hope you’ll take a look!
After an attack by a band of roving Nazi Brownshirts, Lisel Ganz, an artist’s model in Berlin, suffers an injury that gives her the ability to catch glimpses of the future. It is already too late for many, but Lisel now can see that an even greater evil lies ahead. Taking refuge in the home of artist Albert Entrater, Lisel meets Konrad, a Catholic priest involved in a plot to assassinate Hitler. Amid great betrayal, loss, and danger, Lisel must act while there is still time. A novel of what literary critic George Steiner has called alternity, Summer of the Long Knives explores the hopes and horrors that emerge from history’s darkest moments.
