Something dark and wacky this way comes!
Eden Robinson's newest novel, Son of a Trickster, makes
its way into Canadian bookstores February 2017.

Son of a Trickster is a unique, genuinely surprising novel from one of Canada’s finest writers, a blend of
hardscrabble coming-of-age story with mythic fiction at its most powerfully subversive. It’s exactly as slippery
as a trickster tale should be, changing direction and shape even as you convince yourself you know what’s going on,
and what will likely happen next.… This is Robinson at her best.”


Son of a Trickster coverEden Robinson

“Eden Robinson is a masterful storyteller. Shimmering with deft prose, unforgettable characters, and haunting
Son of a Trickster reminds us that sometimes the surest way to solid ground is through believing in magic.”
— Ami McKay,
author of The Birth House, The Virgin Cure, and The Witches of New York

Sandrone Dazieri's international bestseller,
Kill the Father, makes its English-language debut
January 2017.

“Absolutely electrifying. Kill the Father is one of those rare treasures: a page-turning thriller—in every sense of the phrase—
that is also brilliantly nuanced and rich with insight into the complex and compelling minds of those, good and bad,
who inhabit its pages. This novel is the new definition of a one-sitting read.”

New York Times bestselling author of The Bone Collector and The Steel Kiss

Kill the Father - US paperback edition

Kill the Father is an intense, gripping, and entirely unforgettable story—part psychological puzzle, part police procedural, and part conspiracy theory. Mr. Dazieri has written a thriller of the highest order. Highly recommended.”
— CHRISTOPHER REICH, New York Times bestselling author of the Numbered Account and Rules of Deception

“A mind-bending, stunningly original page-turner…In Dante and Colomba, Sandrone Dazieri has created two of the most memorable characters in modern crime fiction.”— JONATHAN KELLERMAN, internationally bestselling author of A Cold Heart and Dr. Death

“Ingenious…features a pair of protagonists with personal demons as unnerving as the vicious monster they’re pursuing.”
— JOHN VERDAN, internationally bestselling author of Think of a Number and Wolfe Lake

“Sandrone Dazieri's American debut is an epic tale that surprises at every turn—a twisty, mind-boggler that introduces not one but two memorable protagonists and hurls them into circumstances that threaten both their lives and sanity. The rollercoaster ride continues to the very last page, leaving me impatient for the sequel.”— JOSEPH FINDER, New York Times bestselling author of Guilty Minds and Suspicion

Yasuko Thanh won the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize for her debut novel Mysterious Fragrance of the Yellow Mountains.

Mysterious Fragrance of the Yellow Mountains, by Yasuko Thanh "Straining under the colonial rule of the French at the turn of the twentieth century, Vietnam is rife with corruption, oppression, opium dens, and revolutionary cells, and an active guillotine dominates a Saigon square. With compelling narrative drive, Yasuko Thanh imbues Mysterious Fragrance of the Yellow Mountains with atmosphere and resonance, and creates mesmerizing characters who undergo complex change—politically, socially, personally, sexually—as they are gathered into a vortex of intrigue and risk. The author is as fearless and as wise in reshaping the mystique of the revolutionary as she is in delineating a dramatic time and place in this elegant and tantalizing novel."
—Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize Jurors Pasha Malla, Lauren B. Davis, & Trevor Ferguson
