      Lambda Literary Award and Sunburst Award finalist; a Globe and Mail Best Book of the Year

      It's the summer of 1990, and Crystal Beach in Ontario has lost its beloved, long-running amusement park, leaving the lakeside village a virtual ghost town. It is back to this fallen community Starla Mia Martin must return to live with her overbearing mother after dropping out of university and racking up significant debt. But an economic downturn, mother-daughter drama, and Generation X disillusionment soon prove to be the least of Starla's troubles: a mysterious and salacious force begins to dog Starla; inexplicable sounds in the night and unimaginable sights spotted on the periphery. Soon enough, Starla must confront the unresolved traumas that haunt Crystal Beach.

      Sodom Road Exit might read like a conventional paranormal thriller, except that Starla is far from a conventional protagonist. Where others might feel fear, Starla feels lust and queer desire. When others might run, Starla draws the horror nearer. And in turn, she draws a host of capricious characters toward her--all of them challenged to seek answers beyond their own temporal realities.

      Sodom Road Exit, the second novel by Amber Dawn, is a book that's alive with both desire and dread.

      Reviews
      Unsettling. Captivating. Genius! As riveting as Siouxsie and the Banshees' "Spellbound" and as fascinating as Marian Engel's The Bear. Amber Dawn has rolled out a red carpet laced with sweet mystery for everyone this novel discovers. I love everything about this. Amber Dawn RULES for all of eternity. -Richard Van Camp, author of The Lesser Blessed and Godless but Loyal to Heaven
      Amber Dawn is the white girl's Eden Robinson--gritty and honest. Her skillful use of dialogue brings us to the edge of our seats and draws us into a world of miracles and magic, where a trailer park is transformed by carnival artifacts meant to invoke the presence of an angel. But all is not as it seems. Sodom Road Exit is spellbinding storytelling at its best. -Jonína Kirton, author of An Honest Woman and page as bone - ink as blood
      Starla Mia Martin is as flawed as they come: trouble, troubled, and full of wisecracks that had me laughing out loud. Carnivalesque, wise, and sometimes intensely funny, Sodom Road casts a clear-eyed look at what it means to flee, to return, to be trapped. Amber Dawn has written a special kind of ghost story. I'm in love. -Hiromi Goto, author of The Kappa Child and Half World
      A fun park ghost story that tilts from horror to desire and back again, Sodom Road Exit is both the roller coaster and the scream -- a long, death-defying scream that roars through pain and betrayal, forgiveness and new life. Amber Dawn's Star will break your heart, if apparitional Etta doesn't beat her to it; and the impact of their shivery, sensual touch across time will ripple fresh into the future. With ferocious compassion and an unforgettable cast of characters, Amber Dawn has written an extraordinary novel of queer love and survival. Consent to be possessed by it.
      -Megan Milks, author of Kill Marguerite and Other Stories
      The greatest revelation from the angel of Crystal Beach is that Amber Dawn is the angel of CanLit -- masterful in her brazen prose and merciful in the redemption she grants her characters. Sodom Road Exit is a haunting testament to the transformative power of community, especially when face to face with the inexorcisable ghosts of our pasts. -Vivek Shraya, author of She of the Mountains and even this page is white
      On the highway of trauma, lust, and desire, Amber Dawn's Sodom Road Exit is a wild complex literary off-road. This is a stunning novel with carnival-like drama, visceral characters, and hard-earned poetic insight into survivorship. Sodom Road Exit is designed to unlock and upheave. -Shannon Webb-Campbell, author of Still No Word and Who Took My Sister?
      In Sodom Road Exit, Amber Dawn writes at the edges, crossing the lines that separate reality from obsession, the living world from the dead, the trailer park from the strip club. In this vital novel, Starla returns home to Crystal Beach, a derelict resort town, to live with her mother, trailing a history of debt and failure. Home again, she encounters the ghosts of her childhood and adolescence, finds a job at a campsite, falls in love, and is possessed by another ghost, a forgotten woman named Etta, who died at the abandoned amusement park, and who is determined to be remembered in her afterlife. Sodom Road Exit is an extraordinary, strange, and deeply human novel about the often futile search for redemption, healing, and the ways in which we survive. -Jen Sookfong Lee, author of The Conjoined and The Better Mother
      A fresh and unusual story that encompasses both the dark and the hilarious ... If you're jonesing for a dose of early 90s, Gen-X ennui, with a side of the supernatural, Sodom Road Exit is worth the price of admission. -Lambda Literary
      As Sodom Road Exit queers the horror genre, it also asks what queer horror includes -- a critical question right now -- and how we heal from that trauma. -The Globe and Mail

      Description

      A modern retelling of the Camus classic that posits its story of infectious disease and quarantine in our contemporary age of social justice and rising inequity.

      At first it's the dead rats; they start dying in cataclysmic numbers, followed by other city creatures. Then people begin experiencing flu-like symptoms as well as swellings in their lymph nodes. The masses react in disbelief when the official diagnosis comes in and later, when a quarantine is imposed on the increasingly terrified city.

      Inspired by Albert Camus' classic 1947 novel, Kevin Chong's The Plague follows Dr Bernard Rieux's attempts to fight the treatment-resistant disease and find meaning in suffering. His efforts are aided by Megan Tso, an American writer who is trapped in the city while on a book tour, and Raymond Siddhu, a city hall reporter at a daily newspaper on its last legs from the latest round of job cuts.

      Told with dark humour and an eye trained on the frailties of human behavior, Chong's novel explores themes in keeping with Camus' original vision--heroism in the face of futility, the psychological strain of quarantine--but fraught with the political and cultural anxieties of our times.


      Bio

      Kevin Chong is the author of seven books, including the novels The Plague, Beauty Plus Pity, and Baroque-a-Nova and the memoir My Year of the Racehorse. His work has been published in Canada, the US, France, Australia, and Macedonia, and has been shortlisted for the Hubert Evans Fiction Prize and a National Magazine Award. He lives in Vancouver, where he teaches in the University of British Columbia's Creative Writing Program and at The Writers' Studio at Simon Fraser University.

      The complexities of racial tensions and income inequality are explored through the lens of The Plague, Kevin Chong's nuanced study of human nature under biological siege, and a terrific riff on the Camus classic. It combines all the horror of The Walking Dead's best episodes with a timely investigation of moral and philosophical courage, failures, and the grey spaces between. -Eden Robinson, author of Son of a Trickster
      The Plague is Kevin Chong's artfully wry parable of contemporary social relations. Gripping, funny, and engagingly metafictional, it offers a timely reboot of the modern classic. -David Chariandy, author of Brother and Soucouyant
      Chong's novel is a compelling work of storytelling, which stands on its own feet, quite independent of Camus' work. -Ormsby Review
      Chong's rendition of The Plague stands up as a dystopian drama with nuanced characters and tense relationships ... In reworking Camus, Chong manages to frankly confront the ailments of an urban environment that is sick in more ways than one. -Quill and Quire
      The best known examples of classics revisited have offered new interpretations of their originals from previously marginal points of view ... The Plague is a novel which stands up well in this lofty company. -Toronto Star
      The mastery of Chong's novel is that it doesn't indulge in the excess of dystopian squalor, but chooses instead to refract inequality, oppression, and domestic strife in everyday life through the hope that work brings. -subTerrain
      A successful experiment in storytelling and an homage to one of the 20th century's major novels. ... Chong's novel works as a stand-alone piece but read back to back with the original, as was done for this review, the two versions conduct an impressive dialogue. Taken together, the two novels reflect on fundamental questions of mortality and death, human connection and, solidarity and estrangement. -Vancouver Sun

      Description

      Lambda Literary Award winner Casey Flett's latest, in which a trans woman learns her grandfather may have been trans himself.

      In this debut novel by the author of the Lambda Literary Award-winning story collection A Safe Girl to Love, Wendy Reimer is a thirty-year-old trans woman in Winnipeg who comes across evidence that her late grandfather--a devout Mennonite farmer--might have been transgender himself. At first she dismisses this revelation, having other problems at hand, but as she and her friends struggle to cope with the challenges of their increasingly volatile lives--which range from alcoholism, to sex work, to suicide--Wendy is drawn to the lost pieces of her grandfather's life, becoming determined to unravel the mystery of his truth.

      Alternately warm-hearted and dark-spirited, desperate and mirthful, Little Fish explores the winter of discontent in the life of one transgender woman as her past and future become irrevocably entwined.


      Bio

      I have never felt as seen, understood, or spoken to as I did when I read Little Fish. Never before in my life. Casey remains one of THE authors to read if you want to understand the interior lives of trans women in this century. -Meredith Russo, author of If I Was Your Girl
      There is a dark place most novels don't touch. If you've ever been there, maybe you know how exhilarating it can be to read a book like this, a book that captures the darkness so honestly, so accurately, that you can finally begin to let it go. Fearless and messy and oozing with love, Little Fish is a devastating book that I don't ever want to be without.
      -Zoey Leigh Peterson, author of Next Year, For Sure
      It's a confident, moving work that reports unflinchingly on the lives of trans women in Winnipeg. But more than that, it's also an honest and heartbreaking, and sometimes funny, look at a group of friends trying to come to terms with themselves and their world ... Little Fish is a powerful and important debut. Plett has masterfully painted her characters as both deeply complex and relatable. -National Post
      Little Fish is ultimately not about the past but about the present -- and looking forward to trans futures ... A friend recently told me that one of the things she appreciates about Plett's work is how she so clearly writes for trans women. But the novel also deserves a wide audience. Every reader can get this part: being a trans woman is exhausting. -The Globe and Mail
      Rather than downplaying transness in some effort to normalize or simplify it, Plett centres it ... While she acknowledges the absolute uniqueness of individual experience, she also honours a loosely held trans culture, a shared palette of pain and loss, and a collective heroism (though the author herself might be reticent to call it that). For those of us outside this experience, we can only count ourselves lucky to have Plett's novel, a book that invites us to witness something so important, so complex, and so tender. -Quill and Quire (STARRED REVIEW)
      A touching and beautiful novel. -The Independent (UK)
      A hard-hitting, beautiful, and thought-provoking novel ... It will break you, and build you back up. -Casey the Canadian Lesbrarian
      Plett has captured the multitude of emotions and decisions that can overwhelm our lives, from loneliness and self-destruction to the redemptive power of family and self-love. -The Advocate ("Best Books of the Year")

      A Globe and Mail Best Book of the Year

      A tour-de-force debut novel about a Two-Spirit Indigiqueer young man and proud NDN glitter princess who must reckon with his past when he returns home to his reserve.

      "You're gonna need a rock and a whole lotta medicine" is a mantra that Jonny Appleseed, a young Two-Spirit/Indigiqueer, repeats to himself in this vivid and utterly compelling debut novel by poet Joshua Whitehead.

      Off the reserve and trying to find ways to live and love in the big city, Jonny becomes a cybersex worker who fetishizes himself in order to make a living. Self-ordained as an NDN glitter princess, Jonny has one week before he must return to the "rez"--and his former life--to attend the funeral of his stepfather. The seven days that follow are like a fevered dream: stories of love, trauma, sex, kinship, ambition, and the heartbreaking recollection of his beloved kokum (grandmother). Jonny's life is a series of breakages, appendages, and linkages--and as he goes through the motions of preparing to return home, he learns how to put together the pieces of his life.

      Jonny Appleseed is a unique, shattering vision of First Nations life, full of grit, glitter, and dreams.

      Jonny Appleseed is a miraculous achievement of a debut novel. -Canadian Art
      If we're lucky, we'll find one or two books in a lifetime that change the language of story, that manage to illuminate new curves in the flat vessels of old letters and words. This is one of those books. Jonny Appleseed gifts us with clarity in the shape of sharp, and medicine in the guise of soft -- and a sexy, powerful, broken, beautiful hero who has enough capacity in the dent of a clavicle to hold all the tears of his family. This book gives us back the land of curb and field, trailer and ledge, and the community -- in all its rusted and complicated glory. Most importantly, this book gifts us with the opportunity to hear the innovative and the ancient in the prose of a new literary goddess, Joshua Whitehead. -Cherie Dimaline, author of The Marrow Thieves
      Joshua Whitehead redefines what queer Indigenous writing can be in his powerful debut novel. Jonny Appleseed transcends genres of writing to blend the sacred and the sexual into a vital expression of Indigenous desire and love. Reading it is a coming home to bodies, stories, and experiences of queer Indigenous life that has never been so richly and honestly shown before. This book is an honour song to every queer NDN body who has ever lived and it will transform the universe with its beauty and magic. -Gwen Benaway, author of Passage
      This is literary perfection. It's also the most beautiful quill and bead work that I've felt since discovering Chrystos and Gregory Scofield. I'm in awe, Jonny. I'm grateful, Joshua. I'm astounded at everything you've gathered here for us to honour and blush about and witness. You are my new hero. Don't you ever stop writing and sharing. Mahsi cho for your beauty. -Richard Van Camp, author of The Lesser Blessed
      Jonny Appleseed weaponizes story to bring the rez (and urban rez) to life, shrouding its characters in luminous layers so they're neither good nor bad but immersed in worlds and words. Unflinching and intimate, Joshua Whitehead takes his readers on a journey to the heart of an NDN glitter princess with generous, swooning prose. Unforgettable. -Eden Robinson, author of Son of a Trickster
      With only seven days until he returns home for his stepfather's funeral, Appleseed spends a pyretic week attempting to reconcile the competing factions of his life: sex, friends, work, sex, family, identity, sex. Throughout, memories of his kokum (grandmother) intrude upon the chaos, and these unexpected moments of remembrance prove most striking. A radically original new voice. -Booklist
      Jonny Appleseed breaks rocks and crafts them into good medicine for folks like Jonny, who might be looking to see themselves reflected somewhere, and for whom this visibility might even mean survival. As Whitehead weaves Jonny's resonant experiences and complex identity into a compelling journey, we might also consider why stories such as his are so rare when Jonny is so willing to bring us along for the ride. -Winnipeg Free Press
      Every so often, a book comes along that feels like a milestone, with revolution nestled beneath every sentence, every word. Oji-Cree/nehiyaw two-spirit/Indigiqueer writer Joshua Whitehead's Jonny Appleseed is one of those books ... With its fluid structure and timelines, Jonny Appleseed creates a dream-like reading experience -- and with a narrator as wise, funny and loveable as Jonny, it's the sort of dream you don't want to wake up from. -The Globe and Mail

      Description

      The worlds of urban gentrification, overpriced real estate, and gang violence collide in this wry and sardonic crime novel by author and comedian Charles Demers (Vancouver Special, The Horrors).

      As a shaky truce between suburban gangsters starts to unravel, schlubby civilian Scott Clark has other things on his mind: if he can't afford to buy out his former father-in-law, Scott's about to lose the only house he's ever called home. In Vancouver's red-hot real estate market, he doesn't have a chance--until he and his best friends take the last-ditch measure of staging a drive-by shooting on the property to push down the asking price. But when Scott's pretend gangland stunt attracts the attention of real criminals, his make-believe crew soon finds itself in the middle of a deadly rivalry.

      With wicked humour and a brilliant cast of desperate characters, Property Values explodes the crime novel genre while exploring the absurd lengths to which a man will go to in order to hold onto his home in today's market.

      Bio

      Charles Demers is a comedian, writer, and playwright, and the author of the novels Property Values (Arsenal Pulp Press) and The Prescription Errors (Insomniac Press), and the non-fiction books The Horrors (Douglas & McIntyre), Vancouver Special (Arsenal Pulp Press, now out of print), and (with George Bowering) The Dad Dialogues (Arsenal Pulp Press). He's a regular on CBC's The Debaters and is the voice of Walter the Slug on the Emmy-winning Netflix cartoon Beat Bugs. He is also the editor of Robin's Egg Books, a humour imprint of Arsenal Pulp Press. A longtime political activist, he lives in East Vancouver with his wife and daughter.

      Nobody writes Vancouver like Charles Demers. In Property Values, Canada's best and most socially engaged comedian takes aim at the housing crisis and the death of journalism with equal parts humour, outrage, and literary virtuosity. Hysterical and highly moving.
      -Sam Wiebe, author of Invisible Dead and Cut You Down
      A searing commentary on the commodification of homes and the displacement of lower and middle classes should be neither funny nor entertaining, yet here we are with Charles Demers' hilarious new novel. Like the best literary satire, the jokes are so densely and smartly packed into each page that you forget this is about serious stuff. And trust me: you will, as the non-cool kids say, guffaw out loud. -Paul Bae, executive producer of "The Big Loop" and "The Black Tapes"
      This is a book that will make you laugh, and make you think. -Vancouver Sun
      Demers' book reflects the very real struggle and desperation of average folks just trying to get a fair shake in an unfair world. Thankfully, he's hilarious and the story of a great bad idea that goes very bad is compelling, moving, and FUNNY! -Marc Maron, actor-comedian
      Property Values is an absolute pleasure: incisive, LOL comedic, emotional, and full of insightful juxtapositions that define living in Vancouver. Charles Demers has brilliantly twisted a crime novel with a demented coming of age tale and in doing so, expands our definitions of home, family and self-worth. -Mina Shum, filmmaker, Meditation Park and Double Happiness
      Written by an author acclaimed for the sharp, politically charged wit of such books as The Horrors and Vancouver Special, this descent into noir is also outright funny. -Georgia Straight

      American Library Association Stonewall Honor Book

      A moving and intimate LGBTQ graphic novel about two women, both of whom are trying to put the pieces of their lives back together.

      Still smarting years after a horrible breakup, Rayanne diligently buries herself in her work. Aside from work, she has her cat. And other than her cat, she has her crushes: crushes that she prides herself on being able to resist. Then unexpectedly, one of her crushes begins to affect her more than the others, and threatens to upset the delicate balance of her carefully controlled life.

      Ali is still feeling lost and numb almost a year after the death of her wife. Then one ordinary day something extraordinary happens: she is ambushed by her attraction to another woman that is both invigorating and fantastically inappropriate. Whether she's ready for it or not, it stirs up feelings Ali didn't think she was capable of having anymore.

      Funny, moving, and full of heart, Forward is a graphic novel that explores the parameters of second chances and the tricky emotions of grief, fear, vulnerability, and desire.

      Forward is a moving depiction of grief and loss, but it also includes sweet moments of sexual desire, joy, and laughter, which bubble up even in the most painful times -- kind of like real life! The book will resonate for anyone who's lost a loved one and struggled their way back into life and living.
