Maggie the Mechanic : A Love and Rockets Book - akzamkowy.orgPost a Comment. In it, we learn Maggie stands a mere five feet tall and Hopey is even shorter. But not just any kind of mechanic. But pro-solar mechanic Maggie inhabits a world unequally split between the fantastic and the not-so-mundane. After throwing Maggie into many crazy adventures in exotic locales—jungles complete with dinosaurs, deserts full of bandits and revolutionaries and women wrestlers—Hernandez gradually dials back on the sci-fi elements and turns up the knob on the social realism and soap opera.
