Victory brought to you by the letter L. History is sometimes way crazier than fiction: you can't make stories like Bletchley and Turing up. No one would believe it.

Do you love stories? Then you must listen to Ms. Le Guin's talk.

It's short. She's brilliant.

Gene Mollica designed the hardcovers of INTERRED WITH THEIR BONES and HAUNT ME STILL. Here's how he goes about creating book covers. Important because yes, many people do pick a book by its cover.

Prose of the Day
#WorldImmunizationWeek

Two hours later, Mr. Maitland was shown into a sitting room that resembled a pleasure palace straight out of the Arabian Nights. 

Sitting cross-legged on an ottoman behind a jewel-encrusted coffee set, Lady Mary was resplendent in her flowing Turkish costume, the thin rose damask embroidered with silver flowers and the jeweled cloth-of-gold rustling and clinking softly as she moved.

He bowed low, in the ostentatious manner of the Turkish court. “You must have a djinn at your mercy, my lady,” he said as he straightened. “How else you could have transported such an exquisite corner of Constantinople to Covent Garden, I cannot begin to think.”

“I admire the art and the poetry of the Ottomans,” said Lady Mary with a smile as she poured out the thick coffee. “And I like to think I can offer some poor shadow of their grace in entertaining,” she added, handing him the tiny cup. 

He raised the sweet steaming brew to his lips.

“But I fear that in the matter of Turkish medicine I must beg your help,” she added.

He froze, and his eyes met her gaze over the rim of the cup. 

“I want you to inoculate little Mary,” she said.
