In "Queen of the Jungle", young academics Paul and Elizabeth appear to enjoy a comfortable, tenure-track marriage, commuting between their jobs on either side of the Midwest. When Paul begins an affair with a graduate student, Elizabeth's cat Charlotte deviously arranges revenge for her absent owner and teaches Paul a lesson about infidelity that can't be learned at any university. "99" is the story of Gregory Eyck, a cultural anthropologist whose conference on the death of Captain Cook fails miserably and threatens his career. Eyck accepts an assignment in England with the BBC and travels to a mysterious town near Stonehenge where he finds himself an unwitting participant/observer in a bizarre druidic ritual. And in "Casting the Runes", a junior history professor named Victoria Dunning finds that she must defend not only her postmodernist ideology but also her very life from the greed and sorcery of an older, senior professor.
