The Evening Hour by Carter Sickels
The Evening Hour

Matthew Witt, August 4, 2012

This has everything you could want in a novel. Characters that you root for but are human, flawed, complex. A story that has you wanting to know what is going to happen. And a context, a place, that you learn about -- in this case, the coal country of Appalachia in the 21st century. So many novels these days are just another variation on same old same old. This one is original and fresh from first page to last. I've been recommending it to everyone I know.

A Dream in Polar Fog by Yuri Rytkheu
A Dream in Polar Fog

Matthew Witt, January 20, 2012

A Canadian sailor is stranded in the northernmost tip of Siberia and gradually becomes part of a native community there in this touching story. As he learns more about the natives’ relationship with the natural world and their tradition of helping each other survive in the harsh Arctic climate, he begins to wonder about the future of his own civilization.
