Ed. Claude Lalumière and David Nickle – NEW CANADIAN NOIR is an anthology of all-new work, showcasing the full spectrum of the Canadian noir esthetic, from its hard-boiled home in crime fiction to its grim forays into horror, fantasy, and surrealism; from the dystopian shadows it casts in science fiction to the mixture of desire and corruption it brings to erotica; from the blood-spattered romance of the frontier to the stark nihilism of literary realism.

Steven Hayward – TO DANCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD is the long-awaited collection of stories from one of Canada’s celebrated authors of short fiction. Erudite and funny, nostalgic and fanciful, these stories unlock the secret longings and unlooked-for victories that make up everyday life – elegant and unforgettable stories that are assured in depictions of characters and distinctive in voice.

Joe Rosenblatt – SNAKE CITY takes the reader into an imaginary kingdom in the waterways of Florida, inhabited by macho gator-killers and feral pigs with murderous tusks for goring two-legged predators. At the centre of this hallucinatory fable are Cottonmouth, a viper with a penchant for salty language, and his long-suffering roommate Freddie, a retired Canadian Snowbird who has stupidly purchased swamp acreage from a disreputable land developer to build his dream cabin.

Purchase/payment policy: We do not apply a charge for shipping & handling, nor add taxes, for books delivered within Canada,
and we do not add shipping & handling costs to U.S./Overseas orders, unless the book ship cost exceeds the basic ship cost. All PayPal sales are billed in U.S. funds (the dollars essentially at par)
as we sell world-wide, and use this as an international purchase format; if there are US and Canadian retail prices listed on the book,
we charge at the Canadian price (for U.S./Overseas orders, this partially offsets the significantly more expensive shipping cost).
