Slade Steadman's lone opus, published twenty years ago, was Trespassing, a cult classic about his travels through dozens of countries without benefit of passport. With his soon-to-be-ex-girlfriend Ava in tow, Steadman sets out for Ecuador’s jungle in search of a rare hallucinogenic drug and the cure for his writer’s block. Amid a gang of thrill-seeking tourists, he finds his drug and his inspiration but is beset with an unnerving side effect—periodic blindness. His world is altered profoundly: Ava stays by his side, he writes an erotic, autobiographical novel with the drug serving as muse, and he returns to stardom. Steadman becomes addicted to the drug and the insights it provides, only to have them desert him, along with his sight. Will he regain his vision? His visions? Or will he forgo the world of his imagining and his ambition? As Theroux leads us toward the answers, he makes fresh magic out of the venerable intertwined themes of sight and insight. He also offers incisive, sometimes hilarious takes on the manifold ironies of travel, of trespass and trangession, and of the trappings of the writer’s life—from the fear of the blank page to the unexpected challenges of the book tour.

It's 1917 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The First World War is raging, and despite its distance from the conflict, the Halifax Harbour is bustling with activity. Anti-German prejudice is rampant, and though 12-year-old Livy Schroeder and her 15-year-old brother Will are still mourning the loss of their father, who died in a mysterious boating accident just six months before, his German heritage doesn't merit them much sympathy. The rumours he'd been a German spy are only flamed by his disappearance. On the morning of December 6, while Livy is in Richmond begging forgiveness from the Schroeders' former housekeeper, Will is atop Citadel Hill reporting for the school paper, when he sees two ships collide. A flash of light, then thunder from underground: the Halifax Explosion hits. Instantly, the city is unrecognizable. Lost and separated in the dark, destroyed city, will the siblings find each other again? Where is their mother? And who is to blame for the catastrophe? In A Blinding Light, award-winning author Julie Lawson (No Safe Harbour) tells a riveting story of the Halifax Explosion and its aftermath, exploring the concepts of guilt, blame, and taking ownership, the divide between the rich and poor, locals and immigrants, as well as the human bonds that arise in times of tragedy. Young readers will be spellbound, and teachers and librarians will find plenty of topics for discussion in the book's historical and cultural lessons.

According to the modest author, The Brothers Rjukerooka: A Brief History of the Institute of Blinding Light is the greatest story ever ? or never ? told. This heroic literary mockumentary examines the most overlooked adventurer/explorer duo in Finnish history: the mysterious Rjukerooka brothers, who combine the derring-do of Howard Carter discovering King Tut's tomb with the zany cluelessness of Sacha Baron Cohen. Until award-winning humorist Harmon Leon "discovered" them, the boys were practically unknown. Now they are getting their just deserts as the innovative founders of the Institute of Blinding Light. Author Harmon spares no detail, credible or otherwise, in this exciting story of Tito and Ingoora. He includes a wealth of supporting material, including bones, documents, shrouds, and "sacred" relics! At a time when religious dogma has become an increasingly powerful force in cultures East and West, Harmon Leon suggests we take a step back and laugh.

Poetry. "This evening I'm surprise/ anew/ by the way light/ alludes to// an exile// wherein/ a world of which/ I cannot speak/ is glorified"--"Pont L'Archiveche." Praise for Paul Pines' "Breath": ".the poems in `Breath' constitute a heartfelt, extended meditation on the transporting effects of everyday phenomena, how the psychic wormholes that allow instantaneous travel along out internal galaxies hide just under the next memory, the next sentence, and beneath them all, the All itself--unknowable, perhaps, but in Pines' poetry, nearly imaginable"--American Book Review.
