The Curse of the Shaman
Sometimes even shamans get cranky. That was baby Wolverine's misfortune - to be cursed by an out-of-sorts shaman frustrated by his own baby daughter's incessant crying. Not only has shaman Paaliaq forbidden the future marriage of Wolverine to Breath, Paaliaq's beautiful but teary baby girl, he has cursed Wolverine, banishing him when he becomes a young man. And even when a contrite Paaliaq later revokes the curse, the shaman's even crankier magic animal will not. Now Wolverine finds himself stranded on a barren island, locked in a life-or-death struggle to return to his home, his family and a very special young girl. Michael Kusugak, consummate storyteller and bestselling author, conjures up an Inuit tale of adventure, perseverance and first-time love shot through with humanity and humour. This is a perfect story, where even the strong and the mighty have bad days and the bully gets his due and a dream can come true.

The most important book ever written regarding our most shameful and public miscarriage of justice. The mysterious death of nine-week-old Azaria Chamberlain near Ayers Rock in 1980 sparked the most widespread controversy ever known in Australia – and one that endures to this very day. While Azaria's mother, Lindy, claimed a dingo had taken her baby, she was widely disbelieved. An ever news-hungry media had a field day, disseminating rumours and stirring up suspicion against a woman whose demeanour in the face of tragedy they simply could not understand. Lindy was found guilty and jailed for life, while her husband was found to be an accessory. Two appeals were lost, but by 1986 the build-up of scientific evidence corroborating the Chamberlains' story became so overwhelming that the Northern Territory authorities released Lindy rather than re-open the inquiry. A year later a Royal Commission granted her a pardon and in 1992 she and Michael Chamberlain received over $1 million compensation. Evil Angels is the gripping account of the Chamberlains' trial and its aftermath, events that shook Australia's faith in its justice system and its media, and revealed a savage new dimension to the lucky country. Author John Bryson's multi award-winning book is a compelling narrative of events and issues which are still with us today.

Building on the vision of Kurt Vonnegut, the suspense of Michael Crichton, the rich characters of Stephen King, and the passion of George Orwell, Paco Ahlgren's first novel Discipline paints a chilling picture of a world that defies human perception. Douglas Cole is being hunted--and protected--but he doesn't know it. His life has been shattered by inexplicable tragedy, his waking hours haunted by ominous visions, but the more he pursues the questions plaguing him, the more elusive the answers become. Pushed to the brink of insanity, Douglas begins a desperate psychological battle with an enemy he cannot see, the outcome of which will determine the past, present, and future of human existence. Fusing blunt, gritty realism and philosophical passion with electrifying suspense, Discipline dissects our assumptions about reality.
