  • School Zone
    by Inuki, Kanako

    This building may appear to be a normal elementary school, but look a little
    closer and you will see that it has a very, very dark side. For this is no
    ordinary school... It is a haunted place wrapped in curses, where monsters and
    ghosts torment the students and nightmares become reality. Terrible things
    happen to those who enter this place, but the worst fate, it is said, is
    reserved for those unlucky enough to learn all thirteen of the school's horrific
    ghost stories. But what else would you expect from a school that was built on an
    old burial ground? If only adults believed what the children who have to attend
    this terrible school have been trying to tell them... The secret of the
    mysterious mirrors has been revealed, but with these precious pieces of
    spirit-binding glass shattering around them, the students of this spooky school
    have to deal with the ever-increasing number of vicious ghosts who are crossing
    from the spirit realm into the realm of the living, and bringing all kinds of
    wickedness with them! Will Yosuke and his friends find a way to banish these
    horrors for good or, with all this running for their lives, are they just
    running out of time?

  • Bordering on Hatred
    by Rozhon, James

    Speaker Hawke wants things to be better for her than they were for her mother
    when she grew up on the Tohono Oodham Reservation outside Tucson. That wish
    leads her to take John Overland for a short walk early one Saturday morning. She
    smokes a joint just as two pickups race across the valley below them. And that
    starts everything that follows. The next morning, she goes to visit her friend
    and discovers a blood bath. Dorinda?s parents are gruesomely dead and her friend
    is missing. That spurs John Overland into action, into a mystery where he will
    meet FBI agents, crooked cops, drug dealers from Nogales, Mexico, and old
    Indians who live in hovels dug out of hillsides. It all leads to something he
    suspects might be a drug hit on Dorinda?s parents. The deeper he digs into the
    death of her parents, however, the more he is convinced that something hideously
    heinous is about to happen in southern Arizona. Though it is difficult to
    accept, he does believe one thing: he will not live through it. ReadBordering On
    Hatredto discover what John Overland is fighting. Join John as he is shown how
    to prevent a holocaust that would pit race-against-race, brother-against-brother
    and friend-against-friend.

  • The Heyday in the Blood
    by Goodwin, Geraint

    The village of Tanygraig on the Welsh-English border is the setting for this
    passionate novel of love and its consequences. Beti, the beautiful and wilful
    daughter of a pub landlord, is pursued by two men: Llew, her aggressive,
    red-haired cousin, and Evan, the dreamy miller and would-be poet. She has to
    make a choice but it's not her future alone that depends on her decision. She
    and Tanygraig are positioned precariously on borders of class, nation, language,
    and changing times. In this enduring novel by Geraint Goodwin, first published
    in 1936, Wales is associated with tradition and stability, England connotes
    modernity and movement. Beti is conscious of living at a temporal border: 'The
    old way of things was ending; she had come at the end of one age and the
    beginning of another. Wales would be the last to go but it was going...;' "It
    has filled me with a sense of seeing great talent trying its first flight, which
    I have not experienced since reading D.H Lawrence's The White Peacock." Howard
    Spring "Geraint Goodwin's novels and short stories have bequeathed to us a
    vivid, moving and unsparing picture of early twentieth century Newtown and the
    surrounding countryside." Mary Oldham "It is a mystery why a minor masterpiece
    like The Heyday of the Blood has been overlooked. Alternately comic and
    touching, this beautifully-observed and poetic chronicle of rural life deserves
    to be as widely enjoyed as the novels of H E Bates, Laurie Lee and even Thomas
    Hardy. Set on the border between Wales and England in the years of the
    Depression, The Heyday of the Blood describes the changes being wrought by
    modernisation and the reactions of the idiosyncratic inhabitants, which range
    from capitulation to resistance via drunken pranks. It is also a poignant
    romance: will the beautiful Beti choose the dreamy poet or the fiery poacher?
    And how will her father, the rambunctious keeper of the Red Lion Inn, respond?"
    Paul Duerdan "Set on the Welsh English border in the 1930's, The Heyday in the
    Blood explores issues of nationality, language and class with a humorous yet
    tragic story attached. Following the life of Beti Tudor, a pub landlord's
    daughter, this novel is a product of its time and explores issues that are still
    up for debate nowadays. The in-depth descriptions of places and situations
    create a vivid image for the reader, providing an interesting if challenging
    read."Review in Buzz magazine

    by Anonymous

    Other Likely Stories is a powerful collection of inter-related short stories.
    The lives of two sisters, military brats during the anti-war Vietnam era, and

    tumultuous '60s, to April 30, 1975, the day of the Fall of Saigon. These times
    of great political and cultural rupture are backdrop for the stories of personal
    chaos. Against the setting of historical change, dark family troubles - incest,
    addiction, violence, and mental illness are shot through with the incandescent
    hope for happiness and love.
