Khaim clings to life.

Flooded with refugees and slowly starving, the last city of a once-great empire is surrounded by a choking thicket of toxic bramble. This is a world poisoned by magic. Every time a spell is cast, the bramble advances, sprouting in tilled fields and roof beams, thrusting up from between cobblestones and bursting forth from sacks of powdered spice. A bit of magic, and bramble follows. A little at first, and then more – until whole cities are dragged down under tangling vines. Armies hack and burn... but in a world that can't give up magic's sweet succour, the bramble can't be stopped.

Or can it? After ten years of research, an alchemist believes he has found a potent new weapon to wield against the bramble. His invention promises freedom from fear, freedom from hunger, freedom from the rule of Khaim's tyrant, the Jolly Mayor. But these are twisted times – there are no easy answers, only unforeseen consequences...

Award-winning authors Paolo Bacigalupi and Tobias S. Buckell have created a radical and darkly relevant fantasy, conjuring the collapse of a civilization, smothered by its addictions. This is a world of glittering memories and a desperate present, where everyone uses just a little magic... and someone else always pays the price.

There’s just one person left in the world who understands him and what he still dares to hope for.

It's 1969 and a remote coastal town in Western Australia is poised to play a pivotal part in the moon landing. Perched on the red dunes of its outskirts looms the great Dish: a relay for messages between Apollo 11 and Houston, Texas.

Radar technician Evan Johnson and his colleagues stare, transfixed, at the moving images on the console -although his glossy young wife, Linda, seems distracted. Meanwhile the people of Port Badminton have gathered to watch Armstrong's small step on a single television sitting centre stage in the old theatre. The Kelly family, a crop of redheads, sit in rare silence. Roo shooters at the back of the hall squint through their rifles to see the tiny screen.

I'm in my cage on the Kelly's back verandaH. I sit here, unheard, underestimated, biscuit crumbs on my beak. But fate is a curious thing. For just as Evan Johnson's story is about to end (and perhaps with a giant leap), my story prepares to take flight...
'why on earth, after all you've been through, all you've survived, all you've achieved, why would you want to get married.

Like rose's daughter, Laura, who remembers her parents' painful divorce and doesn't want to see her mother hurt again. or the twins, Emmy and Nat, who simply doesn't trust the man their mother has fallen for. Then there's Tyler's children: Seth, too busy with his San Francisco sourdough bakery to get to know his father's new partner; and Mallory, the aspiring actress, who is still wrestling with the issues of her own childhood.

Who to listen to? Who to please? Rose and Tyler are determined to get it right this time, but in trying to make everyone happy, can they ever be happy themselves?
Everyone of us is more than one person. there is the facade we show the world and the inner self, the instinctive creature that ultimately determines our behaviours. Some favoured with the benign inner voice, are fortunate. Others must answer the murmurings of their dark angels.

The streets of Darlinghurst are dangerous. It is 1930 and razor gangs compete for domination of the turf. Leaving home isn't optional when Gilbert Maggs' drunken father chases him from the house with a carving knife. He quickly finds that the back streets hold dangers of their own.

With a name like Gilbert Maggs, and a shock of red hair, he is inevitably going to become Meggsie, and Meggsie will have to learn quickly if he is to survive.

He finds that, on the street, his choice is between theft and starvation, and so begins his life of crime. How can he know that a bunch of bananas, stolen from a fruit shop frequented by Guido Calletti violent leader of the Darlinghurst Push will change the course of his life?
Almost twenty years after forbidding him to contact her, Vita receives an email from her old benefactor, Royce. Once, she was one of his brightest protégées; now her career has stalled and Royce is ailing, and each has a need to settle accounts.

Beyond their murky shared history, both have lost beloveds, one to an untimely death, another to a strange disappearance. And both are trying to free themselves from deeper pasts, Vita from the inheritance of her birthplace, Royce from the grip of the ancient city of Pompeii and the secrets of the Garden of the Fugitives. Between what’s been repressed and what has been excavated are disturbances that reach back through decades, even centuries.

Addictive and unsettling, In the Garden of the Fugitives is a masterpiece of duplicity and counterplay, as brilliantly illuminating as it is surprising – about the obscure workings of guilt in the human psyche, the compulsion to create, and the dangerous morphing of desire into control. It is the breakthrough work of one of Australia’s most exciting emerging writers.

Four sisters desperately seeking the blueprints to life.

The Spring Girls—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy—are a force of nature on the New Orleans military base where they live. As different as they are, with their father on tour in Iraq and their mother hiding something, their fears are very much the same. Struggling to build lives they can be proud of and that will lift them out of their humble station in life, one year will determine all that their futures can become.

The oldest, Meg, will be an officer’s wife and enter military society like so many of the women she admires. If her passion—and her reputation—don’t derail her.

Beth, the workhorse of the family, is afraid to leave the house, is afraid she’ll never figure out who she really is.

Jo just wants out. Wishing she could skip to graduation, she dreams of a life in New York City and a career in journalism where she can impact the world. Nothing can stop her—not even love.

And Amy, the youngest, is watching all her sisters, learning from how they handle themselves. For better or worse.

With plenty of sass, romance, and drama, The Spring Girls revisits Louisa May Alcott’s classic Little Women, and brings its themes of love, war, class, adolescence, and family into the language of the twenty-first century.

You are born into it or marry in. Loyalty is absolute, bloodshed revered and you kill or go to you grave before betraying the family.

We live in their buildings, work in their companies, shop in their stores, eat in their restaurants and elect politicians they fund. Founded more than 150 years ago by shepherding families in the toe of Italy, the 'Ndrangheta is today the world's most powerful mafia, with a crushing presence in Southern Italy, a market-movimg size in global finance and a reach that extends to fifty countries around the world. And yet remarkably, few of us have ever heard about it.

The 'Ndrangheta's power rests on a code of silence, omerta enforced by a claustrophobic family hierarchy and misogyny. Men and boys rule. Girls are married off as teenagers in arranged clan alliances.
Beatings are routine. A woman who is 'unfaithful'- even to a dead husband - can expect her sons, brothers or father to kill her to erase the 'family shame'.

in 2009, when abused wife Lea Garofalo 'disappears' after giving evidence against her mafioso husband, prosecutor Alessandra Cerreti realises the 'Ndangheta's bigotry may be at its great flaw. The key to bringing down this criminal empire is to free its woman and allow them to speak out and testify. The stakes could not be higher. Alessandra is fighting to save a nation. the mafiosi are fighting for their existence.
The women are fighting for their lives. Not all will survive.
