About this title


Its 1959 in Socialist Virginia. The Deep South is an independent black nation called Nova Africa. The second mars expedition is about to touch down on the red planet and a pregant scientist is climbing the Blue Ridge in search of her great grandfather, a teenage slave who fought with John Brown in Harriet Tubman's guerilla army. Long unavailble in English, this bold novel tells the tale of what have happended if John Brown's raid on Harper's ferry had succeeded - and the civil war had been started by the abolitionists, not the slave owners.

Book Description:

"To be sure, so-called alternative or counterfactual histories have gained popularity and a certain respectability; my personal favourite is Terry Bisson's Fire on the Mountain, in which John Brown's raid succeeds and a black socialist republic emerges in the South, as prosperous and superior in relation to its shrunken rust-belt northern neighbour as West Germany was to the East in the old days." --Frederic Jameson in The London Review of Books
