  • Book review: 'Aiko'

    BY YVETTE WALKER Staff writer ywalker@oklahoman.com | Published: Mon, Jun 22, 2015

    In his latest novel, “Aiko,” Oklahoma author Stephen Swartz has traveled from Oklahoma City to Ishikawa, Japan. But unlike last year’s vampire novel set in OKC, Swartz tackles a very different (although equally complicated) subject: fatherhood.
