              Things that are and are not, she thinks, and the dog is a snake. In this fantastic and fantastical debut, C.J. Lavigne concocts a wondrous realm overlaying a city that brims with civic workers and pigeons. Led by her synesthesia, Verity Richards discovers a hidden world inside an... old Ottawa theatre. Within the timeworn walls live people who should not exist--people whose very survival is threatened by science, technology, and natural law. Verity must submerge herself in this impossible reality to help save the last traces of their broken community. Her guides: a magician, his shadow-dog, a dying angel, and a knife-edged woman who is more than half ghost. With great empathy and imagination, In Veritas explores the nature of truth and the complexities of human communication.

              Hunger Moon
               

              Hunger Moon (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Skuce, Traci

              • RRP: $38.99

              • Pre Release International

              Traci Skuce's Hunger Moon is a collection of stories that echo with the yearning to be replenished, to be made full. Here are characters at cusp-points in their lives, attempting to shift their trajectories: to cease wrapping up heart's desire in a pink bubble by launching it int...o the universe. Some turn to ESP, some to a belief in ghosts, some to the future caught inside a glass bottle, each character taking the hackneyed adage Follow Your Bliss too literally to blissfully follow their own storyline. Emotional charged, evocative, and lush, Hunger Moon's thirteen short stories each set out on profound quests to satisfy an emotional hunger.

              South Away is an adventure story of the authors bicycle trip with her sister from Terrace, BC along the West coast to (almost) the tip of the Baja Peninsula. Meaghan Marie Hackinen experiences apprehension and determination as she camps in the dense forests of northern Vancouver ...Island and in frigid Mexican deserts; encounters strange men, suicidal highways and monster trucks; strong winds and violent storms; flat ties and broken spokes. Her couch-surfacing adventures provide an insight into the kindness of strangers en route. Accompanying the travel memoir is an inner journey, related through flashbacks and memories, as the author begins to better understand her relationship with her parents, grandmother, and sister. In attempting to balance risk with safety, she arrives at a minimalist philosophy of living, which requires physical stamina and mental ingenuity. The style is engaging and personable; the images of landscape and seascape are imaginative and memorable. South Away is a rare roadtrip storywith a female lead and a female companion, a Canadian Hobbit tale of adventure and miraculous events.

              Moving to the Clear (Paperback)

              This is the first full-length collection of poems by poet and scholar Jason Dewinetz. From the sun drenched Okanagan Valley of B.C. to Gericault's Severed Limb Paintings , this work examines images both tangible and ethereal, as well as the beauty of the grotesque. The title sect...ion and In Theory poems are an attempt to merge and blend the theoretical texts of Foucault, Shklovsky and others with resonant personal experiences. In a similar manner, this collection itself is a kind of movement through the work of Canadian poets like Kroetsch, Marlatt, Ondaatje, Webb and Suknaski, and the theory behind their work. As he writes, Dewinetz attempts to come to terms with, make sense of, and to understand the minute, everyday details of life; this is the ongoing process of moving to the clear.
