" of the best volumes of feminist — or any other — science fiction in years."— LA Times

"...Those who don't possess a buried memory of humankind's obscure and ancient past are condemned to repeat it. So thank the Goddess for "Sisters of the Revolution," a superlative new anthology of previously published feminist science fiction by female writers, edited by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer. Noted editors of numerous anthologies of speculative fiction, the VanderMeers have compiled one of the best volumes of feminist — or any other — science fiction in years. "Sisters of the Revolution" reaches back to the late 1960s and extends to 2012, with the lioness' share of tales originally published between 1980 and 2000...

But much of the pleasure in "Sisters of the Revolution" derives from encountering work by writers who aren't household names. The stories are arranged as to how they "speak to one another rather than chronological order"..." —Elizabeth Hand, LA Times

Staughton Lynd's Solidarity Unionism reviewed on Counterpunch

"Workplace solidarity in the face of the neoliberal onslaught is as crucial as ever, yet present-day unions become ever more fearful. How do we build solidarity in an era when the tools of the past have lost their effectiveness?

New types of organizations are not only necessary, it is essential to look at past upsurges in union activity, particularly those of the 1930s, with clear eyes rather than romanticization, argues Staughton Lynd in Solidarity Unionism: Rebuilding the Labor Movement from Below. A new re-issue and updating of a classic work, the book has lost none of its timeliness. Critical to understanding how unions lost their way, becoming too cozy with the corporate managements they are supposed to challenge, is the stifling of rank-and-file activity, particularly of militant tactics, by Congress of Industrial Organization (CIO) unions in the 1930s." —

The Big Gay Alphabet Coloring Book A Review in BookRiot

"Adult coloring books are all the rage right now, and I can’t think of a more perfect topic than LGBTQP (their acronym) culture. The book covers 26 terms that highlight LGBT history and culture. While I have to admit that all of the terms didn’t make sense to me (A was for Astrology for example–and none of the LGBT folks I know really take stock in it), the illustrations are darling and turn the focus away from the idea of heteronormality. Plus–coloring!" —Susie Rodarme, BookRiot

Josh MacPhee & Alec Dunn's Signal 04 in Library Journal

"Signal is a serial publication from PM Press that showcases vivid and expressive works of graphic design from international activist movements and liberation struggles, some historical, some current. The latest issue includes creations from Palestine, Mexico, New Zealand, Germany, the United States, and Canada. Interviews with designers discuss their desire to create as not simply an adjunct to politics but rather an eloquent and energetic force equal to other forms of activism. The affordable pocketbook format perfectly complements the subject. ...
Verdict Offering these graphics to generations far beyond their original audiences, this title is recommended for designers, activists, archivists, and scholars studying protest movements..." —Michael Dashkin, Library Journal
