Polar Volume 1

NEW 3D BOOK PREVIEW
Added 18 January 2019

FICTION / Graphic Novels,
HUMOR

The basis of a Netflix Original Movie!

Ripped out of retirement by an assassination attempt, the world’s most deadly spy–the former agent known as Black Kaiser–is a wanted man that’s wanted . . . dead! On a collision course with his former employer, the Damocles Agency, Black Kaiser goes head to head with a stab-happy, psychotic torture expert and a seductive but deadly redhead. His mission only ends if he dies or kills everyone out to get him, and he’s not in the habit of dying.

A guns-blazing espionage action-adventure in the grand tradition of Jim Steranko and Frank Miller, this graphic novel by Victor Santos (Mice Templar, Filthy Rich) is a brutal, fast-tempo story of revenge that Newsarama says is “as ice-cold as its name.” Originally a silent webcomic ...

BIOGRAPHY and AUTOBIOGRAPHY

The harrowing true story of a young boy exiled in World War II Poland, this memoir of survival has been hailed as a quintessential classic, as powerful as Anne Frank’s Diary of a Young Girl, and celebrated for its rare beauty.

Now alone in the world, he has to change his name, forget his language, and abandon his religion in order to survive. Jack wanders through Nazi occupied Poland for four years, with no place to hide and no one to trust.

The Pharaoh Key

NEW BOOK REVIEW
23 June 2018

We’ve linked to a new review for The Pharaoh Key. Here’s an excerpt:

Doomed by a fatal illness, Gideon Crew embarks on one wild, series-ending adventure (Beyond the Ice Limit, 2016, etc.). When the end of a book with a dying hero makes the reader laugh, that’s a neat trick. This is a great cap on the series.

Song of Batoche by Maia Caron

Book News
28 August 2017

A people’s struggle for rights to their land and identity, a woman’s fight for ownership of her body and soul.

In a year when Canada 150 celebrates our iconic heroes, this historical novel about the Métis, from an Indigenous author, is at the very heart of Canadian identity. After learning that her great-great-grandfather was the president of Louis Riel’s provisional government in Batoche, and her great-great-uncle was Gabriel Dumont’s war lieutenant, Maia Caron was compelled to resurrect the ghosts of her ancestors, to tell the story of the North-West Resistance, the unspoken betrayals and buried secrets of the past.

When Louis Riel arrives in Batoche, Saskatchewan, in the summer of 1884, he discovers that the rebellious Métisse Josette Lavoie is a granddaughter of the famous chief Big Bear, whom he needs as an ally. But Josette resists becoming his disciple when she learns that Riel considers the Métis a lost tribe of Israel and himself the prophet who will lead them to the Promised Land. As General Middleton’s army marches to put down the “savage half-breeds,” both Josette and Gabriel Dumont draw ever closer to one another in their struggle to manage Riel, who is determined that he will meet Middleton only in Batoche, the City of God.

The historical events unfold from inside the beautiful mind of Louis Riel, his heroic war chief Gabriel Dumont, a subversive Catholic priest, a spy for John A. Macdonald, and three women with secrets: Madeleine Dumont, Marguerite Riel, and Josette Lavoie, whose journey to redemption emerges out of devastating acts of deception as the troops converge on Batoche to destroy the Métis Nation.

Maia Caron is Red River Métis. Her great-great-grandparents were one of the founding families of Batoche, and Jean Caron Sr. and his sons were among the last twenty Métis facing Middleton’s troops when they captured Batoche. Their house was burned to the ground during the battle and rebuilt in 1890. It is now a museum exhibit on the historic site. Maia lives in Toronto.

Ronsdale Press, founded in 1988, is a literary publishing house based in Vancouver, dedicated to publishing books that give Canadians new insights into themselves and their country.

How Charles Baudelaire’s Poetry Changed My Life

Author News
25 October 2016

It’s true that literature can change your life. It changed Belgian author Bob Van Laerhoven’s. He told Inkflash:

"Because of  Les Fleurs du Mal (The Flowers Of Evil), Charles Baudelaire’s magnificent collection of poetry, I wanted to become a writer. Fat chance, everyone around me said."

In a short personal essay for the US-based writers’ blog Motive Means Opportunity, he evokes the nostalgic memory of a 17-year old Flemish country-boy, desperately wanting to create beauty.

Bob is also the author of mystery/suspense novel Baudelaire’s Revenge, which won the Hercule Poirot Prize for Best Crime Novel and the USA Best Book Award 2014 in the Fiction category. Check out a 3D preview here on Inkflash, or get totally immersed in the author’s interactive 3D room.

Dingo

NEW 3D BOOK PREVIEW
Added 27 December 2018

JUVENILE FICTION

Poetic language and glorious illustrations follow a dingo from the comfort of her pack into the darkening landscape in search of food for her family.

Can you see her? There — deep in the stretching shadows — a dingo. Her pointed ears twitch. Her tawny eyes flash in the low-slung sun.

Dingo leaves her sleeping pups with her mate and lifts her head to smell the air. Dusk is a busy time — the time for hunting. Softly and fleetly she runs through the forest, past a possum, a wombat, and kangaroos in the gully below. Now she climbs to the highest point and sniffs again, locating the scent of rabbits in the wind. Interspersed with text offering facts for curious readers, Dingo is a lyrical foray into the life of these fascinating wild dogs.

Ashes

Reinhart’s debut memoir recounts her childhood and early adulthood as she worked toward stability and self-realization.  A memoir that crafts a neatly resolved narrative though it doesn’t always dive as deeply as it could have.
