W
hen a great earthquake rocks the Pacific
Northwest, fifteen-year-old Rowan Morgan is
hiking in a suburban forest. Tremors rip the coast
from Oregon to Alaska and turn Rowan’s world upside down.
After her father is wounded and taken to the hospital, he
orders Rowan and her brother to stay inside his earthquakeproof, survivalist home. While the electrified fences offer some
protection, it isn’t long before mobs gather, desperate for some
of the food and water rumoured to be held inside.
Rowan knows that if the hungry neighbours had any true idea
of the riches in father’s cellar and water tanks, they wouldn’t be
so easily sent away. Early one morning, Rowan leaves the compound and sets off in search of her father. She is turned away
from the hospital and so goes to check on nearby friends where
she finds a local gang has moved in. She escapes from them
only to run into a stranger she met in the forest the day before.
Why is he following her and what does he want?
MAGGIE BOLITHO is curious by nature and
over the years has been a soccer player, a horsewoman, a martial artist, a scuba diver (volunteer
diver for the Vancouver Aquarium) and a cyclist.
Before making her home in British Columbia,
Bolitho lived in Australia. In Sydney her home
was in a red-zone, the highest bushfire risk
possible and it was there, when she trained
as a member of the CFU (Community Fire Unit) as a firefighter, that
her interest in disaster scenarios came to life.

J
amie Kidding finds a semi-automatic handgun in an innercity dumpster. An aspiring artist, Jamie initially resorts
to his notebook to record the reality of his complicated
life with his mother, his deadbeat stepfather and the bullies he
faces daily at his high school. Gradually, the weapon takes over
Jamie’s life and his imagination, tantalizing him with deadly
solutions to his personal troubles. Seduced by a sense of power,
one fateful day he takes the gun to school. Jamie’s Got a Gun
is a hybrid of novel, film noir, and comic/graphic novel.

The Winnipeg Free Press, online marketing campaign,

T
his is the story of the formative years of Canada’s
most famous newspaper editor, John Wesley Dafoe.
Written by his grandson, it is an honest account
of the man that his family and his friends knew, from his
unpromising beginnings in the backwoods of pre-Confederation
Ontario to his early and unexpected success in nineteenthcentury Canadian journalism. It includes an examination of
Dafoe’s family background, his education, his early career,
his rise as a national and international figure and his lifelong
search for a true Canadian identity. Some of it is told in his
own words, some is drawn from the recollections of those who
knew him. It is a quintessentially Canadian story and one that
is worth remembering.
CHRISTOPHER DAFOE was born in Winnipeg
in 1936 and was educated in Winnipeg and
later at Stanford University and in England. He
was for many years a theatre, film and literary
critic in Winnipeg and Vancouver. As a freelance
writer he has contributed articles and criticism
to the Globe and Mail, the Ottawa Citizen, the
Winnipeg Free Press, the Vancouver Sun, and
British newspapers, including The Times, The Guardian and the
Yorkshire Post. From 1985 to 1997 he was editor of the Canadian history magazine The Beaver and vice-president of Canada’s National
History Society. His books include a history of the Royal Winnipeg
Ballet, Dancing Through Time; a history of Winnipeg, Heart of the
Continent; and a comic novel, The Molsheim Meadowlark. He currently lives in Vancouver.

F
rom hipsters to foodies to the environmentally-aware, it
seems everyone is interested in sourcing their own food
these days. Man about town, and country, John Toone,
brings his years of experience (both good and bad) to this new
guide. Instructional, non-judgmental, and often very funny,
Toone shares what he has learned about fishing the myriad
waters of western Canada. Topics range from how to properly
clean a northern pike, why so-called garbage fish can be a culinary delight, and the tricky etiquette of pissing from a boat.
“Having spent some time with John in a boat, he’s not just another
pretty face. In fact, and I don’t tell too many people this, he caught
more fish than me when we were together.” – Don Lamont, TV
fishing host and columnist
JOHN TOONE is a writer, angler, hunter
and gatherer, home-schooler, and jack-ofall-trades from Winnipeg, Manitoba. His
collections of poetry and children’s books
have been shortlisted for seven Manitoba
Book Awards. He is also the business mind
behind Alchemical Press, publishers of graphic
novels and literary oddities, and Electric
Monk Media, producers of the documentary film Men with Beards.

W
ell-known mediator and lawyer, Glenn Sigurdson
blends personal memoir, family history and
Icelandic lore in a unique and wide-ranging autobiography. Vikings on a Prairie Ocean brings to life the people
and places of Lake Winnipeg since the arrival of the Icelandic
settlers to its shores in 1875 through the engaging lens of a
family legacy of over a century of fishing on those waters. The
perils of summer and winter fishing on an unpredictable and
unforgiving lake are interwoven with accounts of Aboriginal
partnerships, colourful characters, and a proud, resilient family.
Sigurdson also provides an intriguing look inside the making
of a mediator, teacher and writer with an international reputation working in the middle of complex disputes involving land
resources and the environment, a career that tracks back to his
work in the ’70s for the people indigenous to the territories
impacted by hydro developments and mercury contamination
along the mighty rivers to and from Lake Winnipeg.
“With Vikings on a Prairie Ocean Glenn Sigurdson has written
a book that will be read not just for pleasure for it is filled with
interesting facts, anecdotes and people but it will be necessary
reading for anyone who wants to understand early Icelandic
immigration to Canada and the rise of the fishing industry
on Lake Winnipeg.” – W.D. Valgardson
A native of Riverton Manitoba, GLENN
SIGURDSON’s background includes
experience as a mediator, lawyer, facilitator
and negotiator. He is an adjunct Professor
at Simon Fraser University and is the co-author
of Building Consensus for a Sustainable Future:
Putting Priniciples into Practice. He lives in
British Columbia.
