    Humans 3.0 The Upgrading of the Species First Paperback Peter Nowak 9780864928702 $19.95 SOCIAL SCIENCE Feb 10, 2015
    Life for early humans wasn't easy. They may have been able to walk on two feet and create tools 4 million years ago, but they couldn't remember or communicate. Fortunately, people got smarter, and things got better. They remembered on-the-spot solutions and shared the valuable information of their experiences. Clubs became swords, caves became huts, and fires became ovens. Collectively these new tools became technology. As the 21st century unfolds, the pace of innovation is accelerating exponentially. Breakthroughs from robotics to genetics app... + Read More

    John Thompson Collected Poems and Translations First Paperback Peter Sanger 9780864921451 $24.95 POETRY Nov 01, 1995
    During John Thompson’s sadly attenuated lifetime, he completed only two volumes of poetry. At the Edge of the Chopping There Are No Secrets and Stilt Jack (published posthumously), but seldom has such a slim oeuvre supported such a large reputation. When John Thompson: Collected Poems and Translations was first published in 1995, the reasons for Thompson’s stature became clear, and in the twenty years since then, his influence has only grown larger. Thompson seeks out the darkest places of the heart, then floods them with light. These re... + Read More

    Gun That Starts the Race First Paperback Peter Norman 9780864928665 $19.95 POETRY Mar 17, 2015
    The Gun That Starts the Race, alternately like a David Lynch film or an episode of The Simpsons, finds the uncanny in the everyday, surprise you, make you laugh and weep (sometimes simultaneously) with recognition at the fleeting spark of our existence. Many of these poems are like archaeological sites between the sturm und drang of people's fleeting dramas, exploring in language playgrounds recently vacated, graves recently inhabited, basements and dark corners where life and death goes on without us.From free-verse lyrics to masterful sonnets... + Read More

    Safely Home Pacific Western First Paperback Jeff Latosik 9780864928658 $19.95 POETRY Mar 03, 2015
    In his second collection of poems, Jeff Latosik looks to those provisional moments of arrival and anchoring in what Canadian poet Don Coles has called "the catastrophe of time." Safely Home Pacific Western is a combination of words common to travel-package tour buses, and, as the title implies, there will be journeys to be had: into ruined stretches of the rural US and Ontario mine country, across the English Channel in a hot air balloon, into the flight paths of fish hurled across Northern Territory Australia by a water spout, and even the far... + Read More

    For Better or For Worse The Comic Art of Lynn Johnston First Paperback Lynn Johnston 9780864928641 $24.95 HUMOR Jul 14, 2015
    For thirty years, cartoonist Lynn Johnston made daily additions to what would become a monumental body of work: her newspaper comic strip, For Better or For Worse.

As the syndicated strips appeared in daily newspapers throughout the 1... + Read More
