Jeb Card is a professor at Miami University at Oxford and one of the editors of this essay collection. These essays delve into various aspects of our fascination with archaeology and the many variants of pseudoarchaeology that have attracted believers and adherents over the years.
 
In this interview Jeb Card describes how some artifacts that were supposedly from the lost continent of Mu were found in the archives at his university. These essays take readers from the Lost White City of Honduras through "Archaeology as Ghost Hunting."

Elizabeth Schmidt reads her poem, "Drop It."

For most of us life is one long series of compromises. We have to make compromises because we want to exist in a society that is often at odds with our own feelings, opinions, and beliefs.
 

In Laird Hunt's latest novel "The Evening Road" his character Ottie Lee has reluctantly allowed herself to make compromises just to get by. Her marriage has become a compromise. Her relationship with her boss involves compromises. And as this story builds her participation in a hideous spectacle, a lynching, becomes just another thing that finds her being swept along by events.
