She helps people conquer their demons. But she has a few of her own... In the halls of the psychiatric ward, Dr. Zoe Goldman is a resident in training, dedicated to helping troubled patients. However, she has plenty of baggage of her own. When Zoe becomes obsessed with questions about her own mother's death, the truth remains tauntingly out of reach, locked away within her nightmares of an uncontrollable fire. And as her adoptive mother loses her memory to dementia, the time to find the answers is running out. As Zoe digs deeper, she realizes that the danger is not just in her dreams but is now close at hand. And she has no choice but to face what terrifies her the most. Because what she can't remember just might kill her. Little Black Lies is about madness and memory - and the dangerous, little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.

In 1986, about a decade before Alberta's oil sands exploded onto the international energy scene, Harry G Frankfurt wrote a provocative essay on an unlikely subject: the insidious influence of the half-truths, misinformation and propaganda that make up the "bullshit" that is so prevalent in our society. Frankfurt, professor emeritus at Princeton University and one of the world's most influential moral philosophers, concluded that "bullshit is a greater enemy of the truth than lies are". Over roughly the same period, the controversial and unprecedented growth of the Alberta tar sands has escalated the amount of disinformation in the air almost as quickly as it has greenhouse gases. To either demonise or promote the most controversial energy source since nuclear power, environmental groups, Big Oil and government officials have assaulted us with an endless array of hype that has not been seen since the great tobacco wars. In his second RMB Manifesto, Jeff Gailus explores two of the most salient features of the early 21st century: the explosion of oil sands development and the ubiquity of hogwash. The two, he suggests, are engaged in a symbiotic dance that allows them both to thrive -- to the detriment of our moral and social well-being.

Especially if it transforms Sara into Anton’s latest “It” girl. But then one of the popular girls at school starts looking into Sara’s past, and her father’s obsessive compulsive disorder takes a turn for the worse.

The Devil Wears Prada meets Sex and the City in a wickedly funny debut novel about a girl who lands a dream internship at a magazine in New York City. If only she hadn’t lied about being a dating expert on her resume… Harper Anderson has always thought she should have been born somewhere more glamorous than her sleepy Northern California suburb. Already resigned to working at a Skinny B’s Juice Press for the summer, Harper is shocked when the ultra-prestigious teen magazine, Shift, calls to say they want her to be their teen dating blogger for the summer. All she needs to do is get her butt to New York in two days. There’s just one teeny, tiny problem: Apart from some dance floor make-outs, Harper doesn’t have a whole lot of dating experience. So when Shift’s application asked for an “edgy” personal essay, Harper might have misappropriated her best friend’s experiences for her own. But she can just learn on the job...right? Will the house of lies Harper has built around her dream job collapse all around her, or will she be able to fake it until she makes it in the big city?

In February of 2013, as reported by major media from all around the world, Lake Winnipeg was recognized by the Global Nature Fund as the world’s “Threatened Lake of the Year” for 2013. It is not just Manitoba and Canada, however, that deserve a black eye as a result of Lake Winnipeg landing up on this dreadful shortlist. While representative of serious economic threats to the economy of the Central Great Plains region in both Canada and the United States, the condition of Lake Winnipeg is a symbol of a much larger problem. The cyano-bacteria that now form huge blooms in Lake Winnipeg each summer are among the oldest known photosynthetic micro-organisms. Recent research demonstrates that the toxin this bacteria produces has been now been detected in water bodies all across Canada, at levels exceeding maximum guidelines in every province. The deteriorating condition of Lake Winnipeg and the pervasive presence of these toxins is a challenge to the future vitality of our crucial agricultural sector, and thus an issue of growing national health and economic concern. In his third book in this RMB series, internationally respected water analyst Robert Sandford has given the people of the Central Great Plains a true manifesto that can be used to convince government, industry and society that drastic change is needed if we are to avoid the troubles currently plaguing Lake Winnipeg from spreading to other bodies of water throughout North America.

In her first collection of poems, Suzanne Robertson meditates on the nature of intimacy; the connective tissue that binds stranger to stranger, human to animal, soul to landscape, heart to mind. Inspired by the Buddhist paramitas ? actions that spark a spiritual sojourn, the poems attempt to both transcend and stay grounded in a conventional universe. Follow the humourous, pedestrian plight of a secretary/writer grappling with her noonday demon, her love affair with Little Black, and the metamorphosis of her marriage as she harnesses the practical power of poetry, marrying words "to the wind horse," "to the lies and the gossip and the truth of the river / as it pours out the mouth of right-now." Paramita, Little Black explores acts of transformation; documenting a journey to live and love authentically amidst the transient anatomy of our twenty-first century lives.
