    Summary

    The Stone Gryphon is a sprawling Spare Oom story of war, espionage, immoral acts done in service of moral ends, natural history, dinosaurs, Alice in Wonderland, cunning corvids, tequila, D-Day, theology, spirituality, love and sex. If the Dawn Treader can be on the wall of a spare bedroom in Impington, Narnia can be found in other places, too. The Friends of Narnia just have to learn where to look. And upon returning from Narnia, the Pevensies probably didn't just sit around waiting to die in a fiery train wreck.

    "No, no! The adventures first," said the Gryphon in an impatient tone: "explanations take such a dreadful time."
    L. Carroll, The Adventures of Alice In Wonderland

    "Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible."
    Francis of Assisi

    "But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
    "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
    L. Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

    Summary

    Alina Starkov expected to wake up on a ship sailing across the True Sea, one that would take her far from Ravka, far from the Darkling and his mad crusade. Instead, she awoke in Os Alta to a devastating truth: the war was won nearly a century ago, her first love was dead, and she remembered nothing.

    Not even that, as part of her surrender, she agreed to a political marriage.

    Summary

    Castiel was raised to do one thing: serve his country, whether that was fighting a war or becoming an expert spy. But when his lover is charged with treason and executed Castiel defects. He has evidence that can destroy the KGB’s entire spy ring in New Mexico, he has names of scientists involved with atomic weapons who send information to the Soviets, and he won’t stop until he has revenge.

    Putting all his trust in the Americans, Castiel finds himself under the protection of U.S. Marshal Dean Winchester, who is too cocky and attractive for his own good, but at least seems to know what he’s doing.

    When a routine transfer to a safehouse goes horribly wrong, Castiel and Dean narrowly escape with their lives. With the Marshals compromised and Castiel being framed for murder, he and Dean are on the run from KGB and law enforcement alike. They have no one to trust except each other, and nowhere to go that their enemies can’t reach.

    Summary

    During the war, a group of American soldiers were sat around in their barracks, eating dinner and making small talk. One of them asked his friend, "Here's a question for you. Imagine you see a Luftwaffe bomber and a V-PVO bomber. Which do you attack first, the German plane or the Soviet plane?" His friend thought about it, then replied, "Well, the German one, of course! Duty before pleasure."

    (A triptych, of sorts.)
