Book Description: Pearse Furlong and May-Belle Mulholland are two normal eleven year-olds meeting one summer in small town Antrim, Northern Ireland, in the early 1980s. They have little in common except a shared experience of violent, abusive parents. They form an unlikely alliance and as their games and shared fantasies spin out of control their friendship becomes something much darker, with theft, arson, sickening brutality - and eventually murder - all lying ahead. Janice Forsyth, presenter of BBC Radio Scotland's The Culture Studio

Book Description: Known only as 'the goalie', the novel's narrator is always taking the blame. He's just been released from jail, having kept schtum during a drugs bust at his local pub. The goalie is a sucker for a good story, he lives and breathes them, is forever telling stories to himself and anyone who'll listen. He returns to his hometown broke, falling in love with Regi, a barmaid. On a trip together to Spain, to hook up with his shady mates, Regi realises that this obsession with storytelling has its downsides, the goalie all too ready to believe the yarns his so-called friends spin. Naw Much of a Talker is a charming, hilarious tour through the goalie's anecdotes. Storytelling is his way of avoiding problems and conflict, his crowning achievement and tragic flaw. Regi concludes that it isn't a woman the goalie needs, but an audience. Inspired by a six month residency in Glasgow, Pedro Lenz harnesses his considerable powers as a performer and oral storyteller in this powerful and unforgettable celebration of the rhythms and musicality of the spoken word.

Book Description: Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose meets Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho in this brilliant historical epic. Inspired by an extraordinary true case - the first ever documented account of a serial killer in world history. In the second half of the 16th century, Paulus Melchior, lawyer, academic, and enlightened rationalist, travels with his young assistant Willy Lessinger to the isolated German town of Bideburg where local landowner, Peter Stumpf, is accused of brutally murdering dozens of people. A society still trapped in a medieval mindset, the townsfolk clamour for the killer to be tried as a werewolf. If their demands are met, his blameless wife and children will also be executed in the most barbaric way imaginable as agents of Satan and creatures contaminated by wolf blood. Paulus and Willy must fight superstition, the cruelty of those who fear what they don't understand, and a zealous church determined to retain its grip on the souls of Bideburg in this compelling, utterly unforgettable, shocking tour de force. Praise for The Wolf Trial: 'a great storyteller' Louise Welsh 'First, a warning. This novel isn’t for the squeamish. Then again, neither was 16th century Germany, yet Neil Mackay brings its crimes and cruelties, heresies and horrors to life with all the manifold skills of a natural-born story-teller. A frighteningly impressive achievement. Imagine a land in which Christianity is as bloodthirsty as Isis, and where the punishments hereti face make Bosch’s nightmares look timid. That’s what Neil Mackay has done here, turning back to 16th century Germany and the world’s first recorded trial of a serial killer for an impeccably crafted story that also never stops rooting out answers to the question of evil.' David Robinson, author of In Cold Ink 'The tale is gripping, the violence extreme, and the storycraft utterly superb... The Wolf Trial will be one of the landmark texts of the year, without a shadow of a doubt.' Sogo Magazine

Book Description: Folktales. Mythology. With illustrations by Chester Scott. In LIFE WITH THE LITTLE PEOPLE, Robert Johnson Perry weaves history, traditional information, family stories and his own fiction to create a facinating look into the magical world of the Little People...Follow him into this world. You will be enthralled. (--Gayle Ross) After a career as a chemical engineer, Perry, a Chickasaw Indian, was able to devote his time and energy to writing, dedicating himself to recording many of the stories passed on to him by Native American elders from various tribes. These stories are both fantastical and entirely possible. It's not so much that 'little people' exist, writes Perry in his introduction, or even that herbs were used, it's that simple faith is enough for healing to occur. The book is a magical reading experience for any reader, or, as we Muskogeans say--'Felep ah gez oschee!'--they'll have a really good time. (--Will Hill, Kabitcha Feke Seko)
