            Bill Gosden was at the forefront of Aotearoa film culture from 1980 to 2019. The Gosden Years is a record of his enormous legacy as director of the New Zealand International Film Festival-the country's leading annual cinema event and a constant wellspring of film discovery and ap...preciation. Conceived by Gosden during the last months of his life, the book comprises his curated film notes, with praise for vital and overlooked New Zealand feature films included; programme introductions that illuminate the changing technologies and politics of film exhibition through the decades; and striking original poster art from every year of his tenure. Brought together for the first time, these rare items richly chronicle filmmaking and film-going in New Zealand alongside the dedication of the people and partners who made the Festival a cultural institution under his stewardship. Through Gosden's collected writings as well as new reflections on his time with the Festival, a story emerges of positive change in the film industry; the fight for artistic freedom and diversity on screen; and his own brilliant reputation as an ambassador, advocate, and tastemaker in the arts, whose sublime instinct for-and expression of-great cinema has inspired and influenced so many.

Bryce Quinlan and Hunt Athalar have made a pact. As they process the events of the Spring they will keep things ... platonic ... until the... Solstice. But can they resist when the crackling tension between them is enough to set the whole of Crescent City aflame? And they are not out of danger yet. Dragged into a rebel movement they want no part of, Bryce, Hunt and their friends find themselves pitted against the terrifying Asteri - whose notice they must avoid at all costs. But as they learn more about the rebel cause, they face a choice: stay silent while others are oppressed, or fight. And they've never been very good at staying silent. In this sexy, action-packed sequel to the #1 bestseller House of Earth and Blood, Sarah J. Maas weaves a captivating story of a world about to explode - and the people who will do anything to save it.
