Mate, family, pack, home... can Quinn and Kellan have it all? Quinn grew up feeling out of place in the small town he calls home. Yearning for something he can't name, he's always felt different but never known why. Kellan is part of a nomadic shifter pack. When they set up camp in the woods near Quinn's town, the humans are unwelcoming and suspicious of the newcomers. The moment Kellan catches sight-and scent-of Quinn, he knows Quinn is special. But for the first time in his life, Kellan can't trust his instincts. Quinn is human, and Kellan is a wolf shifter, so how can they ever be mates? Their bond is instant and exhilarating. It breaks Quinn's heart to know their relationship can only be temporary. Love isn't enough when pack law forbids shifters to mate with humans. Tension explodes between pack and humans, and when Quinn discovers a shocking truth about himself that changes everything, he fears he'll have to choose between the only life he's ever known and the man he loves.

From the Winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Literature An expanded edition by the Nobel laureate Tomas Tranströmer, translated by the award-winning poet Robert Bly Every person is a half-open door leading to a room for everyone. The endless field under us. Water glitters between the trees. The lake is a window into the earth. —from “The Half-Finished Heaven” Tomas Tranströmer’s celebrated career earned him a place among the twentieth century’s essential global voices. Translated into more than fifty languages, his poetry draws readers to its power and resonance, its shaping of landscapes both outer and interior, stark and yet alive to the luminous. In 2011, Tranströmer was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature “because, through his condensed, translucent images, he gives us fresh access to reality.” The National Book Award–winning poet and renowned translator Robert Bly first introduced American readers to Tranströmer’s poetry in his seminal English translations, all of which are collected here for the first time in this expanded edition. With an updated introduction and fourteen additional poems, The Half-Finished Heaven presents the best of Tranströmer’s poetry in one indispensable volume.

"Spike looked up at his audience. All of the poodles had watched him begin his feast, but only a few remained now. The rest stood at the water bowls or near the far end of the compound. The terrier licked the last of the blood from his muzzle. 'You poodles don't know what you're missing.'" Meet Spike, a Jack Russell Terrier who thinks he is a wolf; Bull, a half-wolf, half-Rottweiler fight dog who has escaped his tormenting master and reconnected with his wild roots; and Hashi, a beautiful poodle who is focused on winning ribbons, not hearts. "Path of the Wolf" is about a boy and his dog, a dog and the dog of his dreams, and an underdog making it out on top. Can Spike, the wolf-dog, win the heart of his beloved poodle, Hashi, while staying true to his wolf ideals? Can Bull avoid man and still survive in the wild? Will Hashi choose Spike, the wildcard in her life, or the safe and pre-ordained path to victory in the show ring? Forget the furry friends story about dogs and cats. Join Spike and Bull on their hunts; share their kills; watch their fights; and experience their love of life as they follow the "Path of the Wolf."

A rigorous examination of the workings of fiction by the novelist Robert Boswell, "one of America's finest writers" (Tom Perrotta) Robert Boswell has been writing, reading, and teaching literature for more than twenty years. In this sparkling collection of essays, he brings this vast experience and a keen critical eye to bear on craft issues facing literary writers. Examples from masters such as Leo Tolstoy, Flannery O'Connor, and Alice Munro illustrate this engaging discussion of what makes great writing. At the same time, Boswell moves readers beyond the classroom, candidly sharing the experiences that have shaped his own writing life. A chance encounter in a hotel bar leads to a fascinating glimpse into his imaginative process. And through the story of a boyhood adventure, Boswell details how important it is for writers to give themselves over to what he calls the "half-known world" of fiction, where surprise and meaning converge.

The Hour Between Dog and Wolf

How Risk-Taking Transforms Us, Body and Mind

Publisher: Random House Canada

A successful Wall Street trader turned Cambridge neuroscientist reveals the biology of financial boom and bust, showing how risk-taking transforms our body chemistry, driving us to extremes of euphoria or stressed-out depression. The laws of financial boom and bust, it turns out, have a lot to do with male hormones. In a series of startling experiments, Canadian scientist Dr. John Coates identified a feedback loop between testosterone and success that dramatically lowers the fear of risk in men, especially young men; he has vividly dubbed the moment when traders transform into exuberant high flyers "the hour between dog and wolf." Similarly, intense failure leads to a rise in levels of cortisol, which dramatically lowers the appetite for risk. His book expands on his seminal research to offer lessons from the exploding new field studying the biology of risk. Coates's conclusions shed light on all types of high-pressure decision-making, from the sports field to the battlefield, and leaves us with a powerful recognition: to handle risk isn't a matter of mind over body, it's a matter of mind and body working together. We all have it in us to be transformed from dog to wolf; the only question is whether we can understand the causes and the consequences.

In The Silver Wolf, Alice Borchardt brought the brutality and decadent splendor of Dark Ages Rome brilliantly to life in the remarkable tale of Regeane, a beautiful young shapeshifter fighting to live and love as both woman and wolf. Night of the Wolf looked back even further in time, to the days of Julius Caesar, when a woman's beauty bewitched a wolf—and awakened the man who had been slumbering for millennia in the beast's savage heart . . . a man named Maeniel, who would become Regeane's soul mate. Now Borchardt takes the saga of these two extraordinary lovers to dazzling new heights of the imagination. The result is a novel of which the pages ring with magic, romance, and adventure—an irresistible call to everything wild within us. The armies of Charlemagne are poised in Geneva, ready to add Italy to their lord's growing list of conquests. On the other side of the Alps, the mercenary forces of the corrupt King Desiderus watch the mountain passes like cats crouched impatiently before the holes of mice. Lying between the two camps is a wild and forbidding land where shapeshifters live unmolested, protected by their leader, Maeniel, and his bride, Regeane. But now the wars of men threaten to undo the careful work of centuries. The human part of Maeniel owes fealty to Charlemagne. But the wolf acknowledges no master. Still, it is as both wolf and man that Maeniel embarks on a hazardous mission for Charlemagne. Captured, Maeniel is condemned to death twice over, as a spy and as a demon changeling. Now, with the help of a Saxon warrior whose love poses dangers of its own, Regeane will brave the icy crags and crevices of the Alps to rescue her husband, only to find that he is the bait in a trap set for her by a villainous man from her darkest past—a man who will stop at nothing to gain the vengeance of which he dreams. But there is another enemy at work. Behind the tangle of ambitions and animosities driving kings and commoners alike, an ancient evil thirsts for a revenge of its own: a revenge that demands the blood of Maeniel and Regeane . . . and of all humanity.
