All of Preston’s six novels have received praise from KIRKUS REVIEWS and other publications.

Preston Fleming, Forty Days at Kamas

“Maid of Baikal tells the story of how the White Russian Armies might have deserved to win the Russian Civil War, and thus might have won, in a better world than ours. For despite the Whites’ manifold sins, the best among them strived mightily to achieve a free and democratic Russia, and most of these suffered a worse fate than what they deserved. --Preston Fleming”

“Under conditions of tyranny, it is far easier to act than to think.”  —Hannah Arendt, philosopher and Holocaust scholar”
