41. Everyone Remain Calm (Large Print 16pt) - Megan Stielstra

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

'Quirky, Sedaris - style musings with unexpected theatrical trimmings.'' - Time Out Chicago These days, reality can be hard to swallow. How do we get to the end of day, let alone the end of the week? Some people drink, others get therapy, but all of us - hidden in the secret places in the backs of our minds - have fantasies. These are what we wish for, fight for, live for. Maybe yours is a pretty girl. Maybe it's a better job. Maybe its the love that'll swoop down makes everything seem okay. It's the fantasies that'll save us, but still - they're a dangerous thing. That pretty girl may not be so pretty tomorrow; that perfect job may not really exist; and what happens to love when you're so lost in a fantasy you can't see what's right in front of your face? The stories in Everyone Remain Calm explore the lines between fantasy and reality - how we move between the two in a crazy attempt to make our lives better. It's a hard journey - we get anxious, panicked, fearful, lost - our pulse quickens, shoulders tighten. We forget to breathe. These stories are a reminder.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Unlock your inner Sherlock. It had been a long time since Mat Lawrence went to the city. Only something urgent could take him from his job deep in the desert managing construction of a mammoth power dam ... something as urgent and shocking as the grisly murder of his father. His father dying wasn't a complete surprise to him; the old man was a big - time gangster. Straight - laced and hard - working, Mat had wanted nothing to do with such vices. But he does share at least one family trait, a temper that propels him to exact revenge in the traditional family style. And so, with the ''help'' of his father's fast - talking criminal attorney, Mat goes after the culprits. But bullets, lies and bedlam follow when he finds himself neck - deep in trouble trying to single - handedly track down his father's killers and a million dollars gone missing. ALSO INCLUDES THE MYSTERY STORIES ''FLAME CITY'', ''CALLING SQUAD CARS'' AND ''THE GREASE SPOT'' ''...is pure entertainment from first page to last with that L. Ron Hubbard touch giving this tale an enduring reading engagement from beginning to end.'' - Midwest Book Review

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The Dark Wet is the first collection of short stories by Jess Huon. Rich, lyrical and deeply felt, it explores the struggle towards a sense of self and belonging, expressed in three sequences of stories: that of Jed Harp, his lover Danny Hess, and his poet sister Alexandra; of Bell and Oliver, a couple moving between Melbourne and San Francisco; and of a young woman confronting religion and sex in a Christian community in India. Drawing on a rich range of settings, from the lush Top End of Australia, to the mountains of India, and vibrant urban centres, The Dark Wet is a brutally honest portrayal of lives grasping at fluidity and transgression, and the possibility of redemption and change.

54. The Heyday of the Insensitive Bastards Stories - Robert Boswell

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 25.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Robert Boswell's extraordinary range grips us at full tilt in this crackling new collection. Set mainly in small, gritty American cities, each of these stories is a world unto itself. When two marriages end, one by death, the other divorce, the two wives, lifelong friends, become strangers to one another. A young man's obsession with visiting a fortune-teller leaves him nearly homeless. And in the unforgettable title story, a man recounts the summer he spent on a mountain with a loose band of slackers, living in a borrowed house, abstaining from all drugs (other than mushrooms and beer) - and ultimately asking just what kind of harm we can do to one another. Boswell's unexpectedly affecting characters and exuberant prose make The Heyday of the Insensitive Bastards a book to celebrate.....ROBERT BOSWELL is the author of five novels, most recently Century's Son; two previous short-story collections; and a collection of essays, The Half-Known World: On Writing Fiction. He teaches creative writing at New Mexico State University, the University of Houston, and in the Warren Wilson College MFA Program.
