Recurrence Plot Book Reviews and Interviews

- April 2014 Book of the Month on Black Science Fiction Society!

- Alicia McCalla's Guest Fest: Rasheedah Phillips Discusses her Debut Novel and Black Motherhood
"The novel explores the everyday ways in which we “time travel,” simply by touching and interacting with everyday objects. Objects are artifacts of memory and meaning, storing up energy, energy which is neither created nor destroyed in the larger universe. These artifacts of memory tell events as they actually happen, as they have been experienced, while the history that we read about in books are only subjective representations of what historians believe is crucial to remember. "

- Recurrence Plot Book Review on Futuristically Ancient
"The major linchpin of the book is Phillips’ slippage between reality and fiction. It pervades throughout the entire book as well as in a metafictional sense. Walls between the reader and book seems to break down at several points with the inclusion of chapters of Experimental Time Order interspersed, and especially in one of the later chapters, it seems as if the reader is the one to whom the book addresses." - Reviewed by Aker/Reese Francis

- Recurrence Plot Book Review on Future Fire
"Recurrence Plot achieves the delightful symmetry of being a novel about experiencing time out of sequence, with a main character who has faulty memory and incomplete information, and about the discovery and reading of a self-published, postmodern, pseudoscientific, multimedia and multi-genre, portmanteau book, which is told out of sequence, leaving the reader confused and with incomplete information, and in a portmanteau, postmodern and pseudoscientific style..." - Reviewed by Djibril al-Ayad

mặc dù còn hơn một tháng nữa mới đến Tết Nguyên đán 2017 nhưng tại Hà Nội, phổ biến cây đào bích, đào phai đã sớm khoe sắc trên mẫu giàn phơi quần áo.

Vừa sắm cành đào phai tại chợ hoa PR, bà Nguyễn Thị Liên (51 tuổi, P.Bạch Mai, Q.Hai Bà Trưng) chia sẻ: “Tôi mua cành đào phai giá 160.000 đồng. Năm nào vợ chồng tôi cũng đánh xe lên chợ này mua cành đào về đón rằm tháng Chạp và Tết Dương lịch”.
