A powerful and gripping debut grimdark fantasy novel, set in a world of criminals, pirates, assassins, and magic... “A man has only three reasons for being anywhere: to right a wrong, to earn a coin, or because he is lost.” Cassius is not lost... The mage Cassius has just arrived on the island of Scipio. Five miles of slum on the edge of fifty miles of jungle, Scipio is a lawless haven for criminals, pirates, and exiles. The city is split in two, each half ruled by a corrupt feudal lord. Both of them answer to a mysterious general who lives deep in the jungle with his army, but they still constantly battle for power. If a man knows how to turn their discord to his advantage, he might also turn a profit... But trained on the Isle of Twelve, Cassius is no ordinary spellcaster, and his goal is not simply money. This is a treacherous island where the native gods are restless and anything can happen… From the Trade Paperback edition.

GOOD AND EVIL... She defeated a demon and imprisoned a mad druid in a crystal serpent's egg. She changed the course of history, and never doubted which side she was on. Now the rules have changed. In the shifting landscapes Celts call the otherworld, friends may be foes, good deeds yield evil results, and childhood fantasies become adult nightmares. Braving pillaging Vikings on the Loire, battling a crazy sorcerer in the Broceliande forest, and confronting the nine Gallicenae, druidesses who rule the Isle of the Dead, the only friend Pierrette can trust may be the Evil one himself, the Eater of Gods. And now the last battle looms, a battle in which Pierrette, she who would save the Past and the Future, can trust no one and nothing, not even the devil she thought she knew. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Long considered both best friend and worst enemy to humankind, fire is at once creative and destructive. On the endangered tropical island of Madagascar, these two faces of fire have fueled a century-long conflict between rural farmers and island leaders. Based on detailed fieldwork in Malagasy villages and a thorough archival investigation, Isle of Fire offers a detailed analysis of why Madagascar has always been aflame, why it always will be aflame, and ultimately, as Christian Kull argues, why it should remain aflame.

In this single square mile hemmed in by White areas, residents engaged in what is arguably the most multi-faceted, inventive, and versatile strategy of resistance during the 1970s. Apartheid on a Black Isle brings to the fore the definitive but underappreciated role that Alexandra played in advancing human rights. Using their manufactured space, Alexandrans revolutionized the South African freedom struggle by fertilizing the underground movement, by joining in solidarity with Soweto during the student uprising and by finding unique ways to grieve. This book explores and introduces ordinary Alexandrans whose narratives challenged preconceived notions of resistance, identity, gender and space.
