  • Don't grab Worms
    by Wright, Jim

    Somewhere in the North Queensland tropics, the town of Primrose Gully and its
    many characters combine to reflect the sufferings, humour, emotion and of
    course, the true to life existence of people who may have lived in that area
    around the start of the twentieth century.

  • Grab Bag
    by McCormack, Derek

    "Grab Bag "is comprised of two interrelated novels, "Dark Rides "and "Wish
    Book," from one of Canada's most important young writers. Both books are set in
    the same small rural city, in different eras (1950s, 1930s), each characterized
    by McCormack's spare and elliptical prose. Derek McCormack's journalism has
    appeared in many publications across North America, including "nest," " Saturday
    Night," and the "National Post." In 2001, he was nominated for a National
    Magazine Award for an article he wrote on Halloween. Wild Mouse, a book
    McCormack co-authored with poet Chris Chambers, was nominated for the 1999
    Toronto Book Award. His new novella, "The Haunted Hillbilly," will be published
    in Canada by ECW Press in Fall 2003.

  • The Slave Dancer
    by Fox, Paula

    One day, thirteen-year-old jessie Bollier is earning pennies playing his fife on
    the docks of New Orleans; the next, he is kidnapped and thrown aboard a slave
    ship, where his job is to provide music while shackled slaves "dance" to keep
    their muscles strong and their bodies profitable. As the endless voyage
    continues, Jessie grows increasingly sickened by the greed, brutality, and
    inhumanity of the slave trade, but nothing prepares him for the ultimate horror
    he will witness before his nightmare ends -- a horror that will change his life
    forever.

  • The Blue

    Britain.” - Daily Telegraph The actors in these short stories quietly and

    freedom, a man packs in his day job to sell miniature suitcases, while a woman
    converts a freelance evangelist after their plane nearly crashes. Maggie Gee is
    the author of the well-received novels The White Family and The Flood. She is
