Jack Zipes of Minneapolis may not be in the classroom anymore, but once a teacher always a teacher. Now retired from his position as a Professor of German and comparative literature at the University of Minnesota, these days he is on a mission to breathe new life into old fairy tales that deliver important messages. The fairy tales he is re-releasing this September are both about fascism and teach lessons that are very timely right now.

The Sting of Love is the story of Captain James Alexander Drummond of England, who has some unfinished business in Italy. As he is nearing the end of his life, he asks his daughter to accompany him on a visit to Trieste, Italy, where he had been stationed during the War, but is reluctant to explain why. Intrigued, Georgina agrees to accompany him.
Told in the voice of the soldier between 1945 and 1946, and the voice of Georgina in 1994, it soon becomes clear why Georgina’s father struggled to adjust to life in England after the War. Secrets are revealed. Families break. Families re-shape themselves. It appears that none of us are immune from the sting of love.

Next Chapter Booksellers in St. Paul will host Ronald E. Peterson for a virtual author event on Sunday, Sept. 27, beginning at 7 p.m. He plans to discuss the inspiration for his debut sci-fi novel, Gardeners of the Universe, and do a reading.
The story begins in the not too distant future with the births of three children destined to change the world. Rianne grows up to lead biological revolutions. Dan creates sentient computers and guides the direction of human evolution. Sarah, in an age of information dissonance, becomes the most trusted individual on Earth, and convinces the world that it must change. What sets the three apart from the rest of humanity are genetics and “gifts” that were no accident.
The book shows how the children and their totally different families adapt to disruptive new technologies in transportation, medicine, communication, as well as global catastrophe. The focus is on how people will change themselves, through mechanical devices, augmented intelligence, and ultimately altering our genetics, and how these shifts will affect real people. As humanity struggles, an ancient alien species, the Torae, a.k.a. the “Gardeners,” have come to observe our “transcendence.” They are desperately trying to create new universes to populate. The three young humans are unknowingly conscripted into their schemes while guiding the Earth through the most dangerous and consequential time in its history—the 21st century. This is a story about the profound vision, adaptability, and truth we will need to survive.
Peterson is the former Vice President of Technology for Noneywell. In that role he was responsible for the entire company’s new product strategy. He began writing Gardenres of the Universe for his daughters and other youth in classes he taught, showing them the fantastic joys and dangers certain to unfold during their lifetimes.
