Tom Miller will read from The Philosopher’s Flight, an epic historical fantasy set in a World-War-I-era America where magic and science have blended into a single extraordinary art. "Miller’s imaginative debut reads like an American cousin to Susanna Clarke’s Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, filtering 19th and 20th century U.S. . . . [T]he history of this alternate world and its magic tech are inventively executed."—Publishers Weekly
