      Description
      The Invisible Library is a book of poems that reframes the presence of the book in the in our collective imagination, and in the increasingly frenetic world we live in. The term "invisible books" refers to book titles that only appear in other books, that is to say all manner of books unwritten, unread, unpublished, and unfound. Wilson, a poet, editor and publisher has written a collection of invisible book poems that are at once startling and revelatory in their imagistic and metaphorical intent. Each poem captures the nature of a compelling and improbable volume, and delves into the very essence of human imagination. Within these poems are striking voices from the past, the present and the future that lead the reader into fascinating thematic and psychological territory. The Invisible Library, Wilson's fifth collection, explores our passion for the book as an instinctive and cultural touchstone. Much like Guttenberg's unmatched technology, this finely-crafted collection captures the personal within the universal.

This time, however, the blood is seeping closer and closer to home. When a respected colleague is murdered at a disaster site, Saint is entrusted with the clean up… or is it a cover up? Author Anthony Bidulka introduces a new hero in the mould of Jason Bourne and James Bond: tough, smart, and just a little dangerous.

      Description
      A mother's pain. A million dollars. A missing son. Desperate to right old wrongs, a new client hires Russell Quant to locate her son, Matthew, lost to her for twenty years. But can money relieve remorse? Through good old-fashioned detective work, Russell peels away the layers of a carefully concealed life, grown from the seeds of traumatic childhood violence. Tracking Matthew's life from the schoolyard drug culture of a pleasant prairie city's underbelly to the stunning vistas, vibrant townships, and tinderbox safaris of Africa, Russell finds much more than he was looking for. Ever adept at making both friends and foes, Quant runs a gauntlet of uncharted danger as worlds collide. Thrust into the unfamiliar role of bad guy, stymied by seemingly insurmountable distrust and base fear, Russell cuts a blistering swath through covert threats and overt bullets. But as he searches for his Canadian needle in an African haystack, the brutality escalates. Confronting his own role in the cause and effect of scars and anger, retribution and revenge, Russell Quant faces a difficult question: What happens when the prodigal son resists the return?

      Description
      Stealing Home is not so much about baseball as it is about relationships, childhood, and integrity Brenna approaches the game though the personal and universal, with engaging poems that a son's relationship with his father, a girlfriend seducing a player on a baseball diamond in the dead of night or a reaction to a particular major league stadium. While Stealing Home takes the reader behind the scenes in major league ballparks giving voice to icons like Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, and Jackie Robinson, but at its heart are poems about baseball as a prairie rite of passage. Like the sport it pays homage to, Stealing Home, draws you in, and loads up the bases with its humour, insight, honesty and emotional power. Baseball players and fans both young and old will want Stealing home on their book shelves and dug outs. Here is poetry that takes you into extra innings and delivers a game winning home run.

      Description
      Everyone has their Boogeyman. But who—or what—is scaring Saskatoon locals to death? Private detective Russell Quant is roused from sleep only to fall into a nightmare case when the family of a suicide victim hires him to uncover the real cause of death. But what is real and what is imaginary? Quant works to narrow his list of suspects only to find the number of victims growing. Russell is mystified as the trail of fear connects him to a vast landscape of people, including an elegant potash miner, dubious trailer park denizens, reticent farm folk, the Pink Gopher choir, and a gaseous psychiatrist. Compounding Quant’s bewilderment is the complete and perfect disappearance of his once very real friend, Sereena, who has become a ghost he simply can’t find. With the Boogeyman always a few paces ahead, Russell struggles to keep the hounds of failure from baying. Travelling from Saskatchewan’s summer storms to the menacing Lotus Land of Vancouver, he finally touches down in the Canadian Arctic, where tragic hope resides. Russell returns home to bully attacks, a desperate chase through midnight woods, and a sadistic abduction. As Quant penetrates the truth of the Boogeyman, he finds himself on a perilous suspension bridge between idyllic childhood and grown-up violence.

      "In essence, Lynes is the Tina Fey of Canadian poetry. She's at her best when combining the farcical with a sharp eye for the telling detail.... Though it revisits a historical period, there's nothing dated about Archive of the Undressed: it's smart, funny and relevant." - The Toronto Star

      "This book is great, rollicking fun, and a joyous pop-camp romp. To read the queen of CanPo popcult's defiant deconstruction of skin-mag culture is a welcome shot in the arm for anyone who wants Canadian poetry to occasionally be more damn fun." - Canadian Poetries

      "Lynes builds lines of connection with the women she portrays. She presents them intimately, makes them so real they seem touchable ? probably not unlike the way Playboy readers felt decades ago when they gazed upon the first centrefolds." - The Quill & Quire
