Ian Townsend - Affection (v5) (epub)

January 1900, and Australia′s tropical north just got a little hotter.

An outbreak of plague is suspected, and the Queensland Government sends Dr Alfred Jefferis Turner - small, refined and immaculately dressed - to assess the situation. Turner, armed with a microscope, a butterfly net and his lovelorn yet devout colleague,

Dr Linford Row, is met with incredulity, not least by local councillors who insist it′s only typhoid. Fifty-two possible plague-carriers - including two prominent MPs - are isolated in a dilapidated quarantine station on Magnetic Island. Meanwhile, in town, the sewers overflow, the streets choke with rubbish; and still no-one wants to listen.

When Dr Row delivers a letter from one of the quarantined men to his hauntingly beautiful wife, he ensnares both himself and the eccentric Dr Turner in a hotbed of small-town scandal and fear.

Written with wit and wonder, Affection uncovers a unique period in Australian history. A novel based on a true story of shonky politics, courageous medicos, and humidity, it′s also a mystery of heart and mind.




Ian Townsend - The Devil's Eye (v5) (epub)

A forgotten fragment of Australia's past inspires a powerful new novel. It is the end of the nineteenth century, and one of the most powerful storms in history is born when a hurricane named Mahina moves across the Coral Sea. To a remote part of the Queensland coast come the hundreds of sails of the northern pearling fleets and a native policeman trying to solve a murder. Nearly two thousand men, women and children are gathering around Cape Melville, right in the path of the storm that is about to cause Australia's deadliest natural disaster. Based on real events, this is the story of an unstoppable force of nature and the birth and death of an Australian dream.

Robert Olmstead - Coal Black Horse (v5) (epub)

When Robey Childs's mother has a premonition about her husband, a soldier fighting in the Civil War, she does the unthinkable: she instructs her only child to find his father on the battlefield and bring him home.

At fourteen, wearing the coat his mother sewed to ensure his safety - blue on one side, gray on the other - Robey thinks he is off on a great adventure. But not far from home, his horse falters and he realizes the enormity of his task. It takes the gift of a powerful and noble coal black horse to show him how to undertake the most important journey of his life: with boldnesss, bravery, and self-possession.

Yet even that horse is no match for the brutality and senselessness of war, no surrogate for the courage Robey needs to summon in its face. It's in the center of that landscape, as witness to the lawlessness and carnage around him, that he is forced to raise a gun for the first time in his life. When he returns to his mother, Robey Childs will be the best a man can be, and the worst, irrevocably scarred by all he has seen - and all he has done.

When Robert Olmstead published his debut, River Dogs, he was compared to Richard Ford, Raymond Carver, Thomas McGuane. Since that time, Olmstead has received high praise for all of his work. But it's this book that is destined to become a classic. Coal Black Horse joins the pantheon of great war novels - All Quiet on the Western Front, The Red Badge of Courage, The Naked and the Dead.

AD Miller - Snowdrops (v5) (epub)

An intense psychological drama that echoes sophisticated entertainments like Gorky Park and The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Nick Platt is a British lawyer working in Moscow in the early 2000s - a place where the cascade of oil money, the tightening grip of the government, the jostling of the oligarchs, and the loosening of Soviet social mores have led to a culture where corruption, decadence, violence, and betrayal define everyday life. Nick doesn't ask too many questions about the shady deals he works on - he's too busy enjoying the exotic, surreally sinful nightlife Moscow has to offer.

One day in the subway, he rescues two willowy sisters, Masha and Katya, from a would-be purse snatcher. Soon Nick, the seductive Masha, and long-limbed Katya are cruising the seamy glamour spots of the city. Nick begins to feel something for Masha that he is pleased to think is love. Then the sisters ask Nick to help their aged aunt, Tatiana, find a new apartment.

Of course, nothing is as it seems - including this extraordinary debut novel. The twists in the story take it far beyond its noirish frame - the sordid and vivid portrayal of Moscow serves as a backdrop for a book that examines the irresistible allure of sin, featuring characters whose hearts are as cold as the Russian winter.

Jonathan Carroll - The Woman Who Married a Cloud (v5) (epub)

Described by Michael Dirda in The Washington Post as 'sexy, eery and addictive', the fiction of Jonathan Carroll occurs at the point where the ordinary becomes extraordinary, the commonplace becomes unsettling, and yet where we nonetheless always recognize the stories being told because they are always about ourselves and what happens in our deepest, sometimes darkest hearts.

Always better known as a novelist--readers first experienced Carroll s elegant, eloquent, wondrous, terrible and often surreal fiction in his classic debut The Land of Laughs, which he followed with Bones of the Moon, Sleeping in Flame, A Child Across the Sky, and others--Carroll has also created a compelling and deeply moving body of short fiction. Perhaps more eclectic and slant-wise than some of his novels, stories like World Fantasy Award winning 'Friend's Best Man' and Pushcart Prize and Grand Prix de l'Imaginaire honouree 'Home on the Rain' stand amongst his very best work.

The Woman Who Married a Cloud: Collected Stories is the best and most complete collection of Jonathan Carroll's fiction ever published. It collects 38 stories written across a thirty year long career, a number appearing here in print for the first time, in a single landmark volume that stands as the perfect introduction to this unique and wonderful writer.

Caron Todd - The Road to Three Creeks (v5) (epub)

For much of the year, some remote areas of northern Canada rest on land so precarious there are no real roads. They're accessible only once the perfect conditions appear. It's no different for certain people.

Some say life has passed Emily Moore by. They're wrong. She's just waiting for her moment....

And that moment arrives when she discovers her friend Daniel is missing and a stranger--supposedly Daniel's nephew--is living in his house. Emily has no reason not to believe Matthew Rutherford, but odd things are starting to occur. There are break-ins along Creek Road and no news from Daniel.

And then there's the fact that instead of researching the family history, Matthew seems much more interested in Emily...

David Lender - Vaccine Nation (v5.0) (epub)

Dani North is a filmmaker who just won an award at the Tribeca Film Festival for her documentary, The Drugging of Our Children, a film critical of the pharmaceutical industry. When a pharmaceutical industry vaccine researcher hands her 'smoking gun' evidence about the national vaccination program seconds before he's murdered right in front of her, Dani finds herself implicated and pursued by the police. Dani realizes what she's been handed could have crucial implications on upcoming hearings by a Senate committee. She finds herself on the run in a race to understand and expose the evidence. That is, before the police can grab her, or Grover Madsen, a megalomaniacal pharmaceutical industry CEO, can have her hunted down by his hired killers.

E-FORCE: Six gifted, super-fit, highly trained individuals. Mission: Specialist rescue in times of global emergency The Emergency Force team - including former marine Mark Harrison, shuttle pilot Michaela Buchanan and cyber genius Tom Erickson - employs some of the most highly advanced equipment on the planet, from Mach-10 jets to incredible cybersuits that make them almost super-human. They'll need all gadgetry they can get for their first mission - to save the life of US Senator Kyle Foreman, an ecological, Obama-like politician taking the world by storm. As Foreman gave a speech in LA, two bombs ripped through the huge conference centre where he and thousands of his supporters had gathered. Many have died. Miraculously Foreman has survived - except, as fires rage and floors collapse, he's trapped inside. As E-Force plan, and battle their perilous route into the devastated building to rescue him, so too does the Dragon, a psychotic assassin, who will let nothing - but nothing - get in his way to complete his deadly mission. The high-octane, action-packed race is full on.

DL Johnstone - Furies (v5.0) (epub)

It's 36 AD. The city of Alexandria is a center of Roman commerce--and a sinful playground for the pleasure-seeking rich and powerful.

For wealthy merchant Decimus Tarquitius Aculeo, however, Alexandria has become a living hell. Ruined by a string of mysterious investment disasters, deserted by friends and family, his reputation in tatters, Aculeo is forced to eke out a meagre existence in the poorest, back streets of the city. He's desperate to find the man he blames for the debacle and recover what he's lost.

Aculeo's quest forces him deep into treacherous, unfamiliar territory, Alexandria's criminal underworld. And entangles him in a web of corruption, conspiracy and murder.

A common slave is found murdered in the magnificent temple of the god Serapis. Days later, the brutalized body of a high-priced hetaira is discovered floating in a canal, after an evening entertaining the city's elite. The grim truth soon becomes clear: a ruthless killer is moving among Alexandria's aristocrats, commercial titans, and philosophers.

And ominous clues connect those murders to Aculeo's quest, with disturbing revelations about his own past.

Aided by an Egyptian mortuary attendant, a brilliant philosopher, a lovely hetaira, and his last remaining friends, Aculeo must hunt down a terrifying murderer in the highest echelons of society if he hopes to reclaim the life he has lost.

But first, he must survive...
