Review: The Test of Fire by William L. Hahn

Posted by Gilbert Stack on August 19, 2019 at 7:50 AM Comments comments (0)

I actually read Test of Fire by William L. Hahn the day it came out, but life has been so crazy lately I actually read Test of Fire by William L. Hahn the day it came out, but life has been so crazy lately that I'm just getting the review posted. Test of Fire is technically the sequel to Hahn's excellent Plane of Dreams but it is also the very definition of a stand alone novel. If you've been wondering about this author or looking for a great fantasy book to read in the final days of summer, Test of Fire is the book for you.

Today in History: Hawaii Was Annexed by the U.S.

Posted by Gilbert Stack on July 7, 2019 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)

On this day (July 7) in 1898 the United States annexed Hawaii as a territory. President McKinley had tried for a year to get the Senate to ratify the Treaty of Annexation, but failed to get the two-thirds majority needed so he changed strategy and annexed it through legislation. A large majority of Native Hawaiians opposed annexation, but they were not consulted. Their government had already been taken over in a coup by private American interests.
