BOOK EXCERPT:

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Jonathan Kellerman's Victims. Perennial bestseller and acknowledged master of the psychological thriller, Jonathan Kellerman has created a riveting and memorable Alex Delaware novel about a troubled and elusive young woman whose brutal murder forces the brilliant psychologist-detective to confront his own fallibility. Lauren Teague is a beautiful, defiant, borderline-delinquent teenager when her parents bring her to Alex Delaware's office. But for all Alex's skill and effort, Lauren resists—angrily, provocatively. Reluctantly, the psychologist chalks Lauren up as one of the inevitable failures of a challenging profession. But years later, when Alex encounters Lauren as a stag party's featured entertainment, both doctor and patient are sticken with shame. And the ultimate horror takes place when, soon after, Lauren's brutalized corpse is found dumped in an alley. Alex disregards the advice of his trusted friend, LAPD detective Milo Sturgis, and jeopardizes his relationship with longtime lover, Robin Castagna, in order to pursue Lauren's murderer. As he investigates his young patient's troubled past, Alex enters the shadowy worlds of fringe psychological experimentation and the sex industry, and then into mortal danger when lust and big money collide in Southern California. Jonathan Kellerman's L.A. is evil, seductive, and unforgiving, and Flesh and Blood is mind-opening in its drama of a driven man's personal quest, breathtaking in its ingenious plot, filled with unforgettable characters, and topped off by a terrifying climax. This is suspense fiction at its finest.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book provides a unique conceptualization of: 1) embodiment as a lived aspect of gender, 2) how masculine practices may be constructed by both boys and girls, 3) how such embodied social actions are related to violence and nonviolence, and 4) the fallacy of the mind-body, sex-gender, and gender difference binaries.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Matt's home life is falling to pieces as his mother seeks refuge from divorce by returning to the seaside town where she grew up. Separated from his friends, bored and discontented, Matt gradually becomes aware that his mother's family are the keepers of a terrifying secret. "Piggies was certainly good, but Flesh & Blood marks an advance on it ... an effective horror story that could well appeal to a wider audience than its targeted one, though anyone too squeamish should beware some parts of it." The Zone "Nick Gifford creates a vivid and disturbing world... Although the publisher describes this as a horror story it does not adhere to the traditional recipe ... what is more scary than goblins and ghouls about this plot is the believable predicament Matt finds himself in ... I enjoyed reading this novel and feel it appeals successfully to a wide age range." Children's Books UK "Another great teen thriller." Spot On "The pacing and plotting in this novel are superb. Twists and surprises occur at unpredictable intervals. And the ending is a blend of hope and menace ... achieves a level of excellence equivalent to one of Ramsey Campbell's books, neither condescending to his youthful readers nor slighting his adult ones. Now, that's a truly scary accomplishment!" Asimov's SF Magazine

BOOK EXCERPT:

Rose is still young and darkly pretty, her body not yet settled into the shapeless lumpiness caused by too many babies and too much backbreaking farm work. Her children, her kitchen and her garden make up her world in rural wartime Ontario. It is an existence defined by immigrant poverty and a loveless marriage to Jacob, a man whose own existence is crippled by disappointment and self-loathing. Then passion and hope burst into Rose’s life in the handsome countenance of Bobby, Rose and Jacob’s landlord, a black man whose grandparents fled to Canada through the Underground Railroad. Rose and Bobby’s friendship grows into a dangerous love affair, where unpaid back rent is forgiven and an uneasy triangle begins to form amongst the three. But now Rose is pregnant, and caught in a terrible suspension of indecision. Jacob will never give up his children to her, but Bobby is her only salvation for love and happiness. A remarkable, deeply satisfying novel of three people caught between Rose’s own search for love and her unyielding devotion to her children, Flesh and Blood is a sensual exploration of love and desire set against the harsh immigrant experience of a post-Depression countryside. Full of the rich domestic details that propel Rose, Bobby and Jacob along the path of their hardscrabble lives, this is a story that builds to a surprisingly honest -- and ultimately hopeful -- conclusion.

BOOK EXCERPT:

From the author of the best-selling, Giller-nominated River Thieves comes a heartbreaking and masterful collection of short fiction. With uncommon elegance and compassion, Michael Crummey has created a community of exiles, characters estranged from their home, from their families or, just as often, from themselves. Set largely in the small Newfoundland mining town of Black Rock, but straying as far west as Vancouver and as far east as China, these stories are subtle, stark portrayals of people alternately looking for or trying desperately to escape their place in the world. A young boy confuses love and allegiance, then stumbles into the complexities of adulthood; a brother and sister fall in love with the same woman; a frustrated wife protests her husband’s neglect by going on strike with the miners’ union; a lover’s drug habit reunites a woman with the sister she has lost. Anchor Books is proud to publish an expanded edition of Michael Crummey’s brilliant collection Flesh and Blood, which includes three original stories written just for this edition. Graceful, affecting, and generous of spirit, these stories are unforgettable.
