His writing consistently reveals stylistic brilliance, and through his engagement with America's moral and spiritual problems, his works chronicle America's hopes and dreams, failures and disappointments.

Whether seeking a novel summary, an authoritative analysis of subjects, elucidation of an allusion, or a point about Updike's life and manner of composition, the encyclopedia is indispensable.

Posthuman Blackness And The Black Female Imagination

Posthuman Blackness and the Black Female Imagination examines the future-oriented visions of black subjectivity in works by contemporary black women writers, filmmakers, and musicians, including Toni Morrison, Octavia Butler, Julie Dash, and Janelle Monáe. In this innovative study, Kristen Lillvis supplements historically situated conceptions of blackness with imaginative projections of black futures. This theoretical approach allows her to acknowledge the importance of history without positing a purely historical origin for black identities. The authors considered in this book set their stories in the past yet use their characters, particularly women characters, to show how the potential inherent in the future can inspire black authority and resistance. Lillvis introduces the term “posthuman blackness” to describe the empowered subjectivities black women and men develop through their simultaneous existence within past, present, and future temporalities. This project draws on posthuman theory—an area of study that examines the disrupted unities between biology and technology, the self and the outer world, and, most important for this project, history and potentiality—in its readings of a variety of imaginative works, including works of historical fiction such as Gayl Jones’s Corregidora and Morrison’s Beloved. Reading neo–slave narratives through posthuman theory reveals black identity and culture as temporally flexible, based in the potential of what is to come and the history of what has occurred.

“The World Under One Flag” is a fictional story, but America’s decline in economic and military power is very real. History is unambiguous; when a vacuum exists, a new and more dominant force will fill that void. Clearly, China and Western Europe are flexing their economic and military muscles while the Muslim faith is filling the void of a morally bankrupt world. Famous dignitaries have referred to a “New World Order” in many of their public speeches and scripture predicts the emergence of a one-world government led by an Antichrist in the last days. This story is based on a perceived notion that Europe will soon unite as a single political power. This will force China to build its own powerful coalition and vie for world supremacy. By the year 2035, both major world powers will be engaged in extensive espionage to discover a possible Achilles’s heel that might neutralize the other’s military advantages. In this shadowy world of undercover agents, one very beautiful and exceptionally talented lady emerges. Improbable as it may seem, she is the top agent for both powers, but on what side does her loyalty truly lie?
