Overview

From the collaborative team of Jonathan Lethem, John Kessel and James Patrick Kelly come two short novels of the near but-very-odd future. In “Ninety Percent of Everything” mysterious aliens have landed but nobody can figure out what they want. Enter Liz Cobble, a frustrated professor of sapientology who finds herself swept up in a madcap romantic adventure with an eccentric billionaire and an architect who designs flying buildings. In “The True History of the End of the World” Chester Drummond, would–be revolutionary and one time presidential candidate, loses his way when our world is transformed into a utopia.
The Carcopino-Koster boost has made almost everyone kinder, gentler -- and smarter. What’s a politician to do? Lethem, Kessel and Kelly, all established, award-winning writers with their own unique voices, harmonize here in two compelling stories reprinted for the first time.
