The Looking Glass Wars

The Looking Glass Wars

The Looking Glass Wars is a series of novels by Frank Beddor, inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. The premise is that the two books written by Lewis Carroll were, in the story, a distortion of the ‘true events’ portrayed in these novels. It features twists on the original story, such as the white rabbit actually being Alyss’s (Alice’s) tutor, Bibwit Harte, and that the Mad Hatter is actually a very agile, somber bodyguard named Hatter Madigan.

The Boy Mechanic

The Boy Mechanic

If there was ever a perfect example of American mechanical ingenuity, it’s the Device That Frightens Flies At Screen Door. A spring, a curtain rod, a length of scalloped, 8-oz. cotton duck, and a cord combine to form an inconspicuous little device that flaps when the screen door opens, keeping flies from swarming the kitchen. Simple, inexpensive, yet brilliant — these are the qualities that make each of the over 200 vintage projects in The Boy Mechanic so enjoyable to read, let alone create. Culled from a half-century of Popular Mechanics issues (make that the first half of last century), The Boy Mechanic represents an age when imagination could conquer far more than the checkbook — when solving a problem was more satisfying than paying to have it go away. We can all learn something from The Boy Mechanic, even if it’s nothing more than how to construct A Simple Device for Suspending Parcels from Overhead Hooks. —Benjamin Chertoff
