About Mike Resnick

Mike Resnick is one of those writers of speculative fiction who should be a household word.

Well, more books and music, and that should be enough. Hi, it’s me again, and we’ve got some really interesting things for you today.

From the folklore of the Levant East comes Ron J. Suresha’s The Uncommon Sense of the Immortal Mullah Nasruddin, a retelling of tales of the Middle Eastern Wise Fool. And as . . . → Read More: More of Everything
