Description:
As the harsh winds hold the Greek fleet trapped in the straits at Aulis waiting to sail to Troy, frustration and political impotence turn into a desire for the blood of a young and innocent woman - blood that will appease the gods and allow the troops to set sail. In this retelling of ancient Greek myth, King Agamemnon's beloved daughter is brought to the coast expecting to be married to a leading warrior, not to meet her death. When a ceremonial knife is fashioned out of the finest and most precious materials, her fate seems sealed by the hands of men. But can a father really go to these lengths to secure political victory, and can a daughter willingly give up her life for the worldly ambitions of her father?

This is the journal of a 66-year-old man, Ben Turnbull...the wanderings of his wits....So what if he jumps from a United States in the next century, disintegrating after a war with China, to ancient Egypt, or to virtual reality? So what if characters appear and disappear like phantoms in a drewa?...Turnbull's journal is like Walden gone haywire...If Ben's ruthlessness is evenhanded, so is his alarming intelligence: it falls on every scene, person, object, and thought in the book, giving it an eerie ambiance. - The New York Times Book Review.

Description:
Terrorist is the story of Ahmad Ashmawy Mulloy, an alienated American-born teenager who spurns the materialistic, hedonistic life he witnesses in the slumping New Jersey factory town he calls home. Turning to the words of the Holy Qur'an as expounded to him by the pedantic imam of a local mosque, Ahmad devotes himself fervently to God. But neither the world-weary guidance counselor at Ahmad's high school nor his mischievously seductive classmate Joryleen will succeed in deflecting him from his course, as the threads of an insidious plot gather around him.

Description:
Ester O'Malley Robertson gazes out at Lake Ontario from her home for perhaps the last time. This house, highly charged with memories and history, is part of a landscape this is now being swallowed by industry. The story of her family's past has its beginnings in the 1840's off the northern coast of Ireland where a young woman embraced a semi-conscious sailor, who had washed in with the tide, and, later with her husband and young son, fled the famine for Canada, eventually settling in Ontario
