Adding to this list Jim Lynch’s Truth Like the Sun, which is set in Seattle during the World’s Fair of ‘62 and in 2001.

Any other policy amounts to a confusion of realms, though many reporters have told me that on newspapers it’s a whole other ballgame and it’s the editor who calls the shots.

Next month marks the 50-year anniversary of the Seattle World’s Fair, which played a key role in launching the Emerald City into the 21st century, Space Needle and all. Who better to recount the heady seven months in a fact-based but fictional way than Olympia’s highly acclaimed author Jim Lynch?
