"A Motorcycle Artist" is part of a larger project, "Homage," by Lee Carlson that pays tribute to masters of the short story genre. This is the first story in the series. In other arts such as theatre, dance and music it is commonplace for an artist to take a great work and reimagine it in the artist's own style. How many thousands of different interpretations of "Hamlet" have been produced over the years? Or "Swan Lake"? Or Beethoven's "Fifth Symphony"?

Bottom-up history at its very best, A People’s History of the Civil War "does for the Civil War period what Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States did for the study of American history in general" (Library Journal).

Richly illustrated with little-known anecdotes and first-hand testimony, this pathbreaking narrative moves beyond presidents and generals to tell a new and powerful story about America’s most destructive conflict. A People’s History of the Civil War is "readable social history" that "sheds fascinating light" (Publishers Weekly) on this crucial period. In so doing it recovers the long-overlooked perspectives and forgotten voices of one of the defining chapters of American history.
