When Minneapolis sports psychologist Anthony Robson refers his wife to a psychiatrist for a prescription, he believes he’s putting her in the hands of a trusted colleague. But when she becomes Dr. Clayton Shepherd’s latest conquest, Anthony’s life and family are blown apart. As he plunges into a breakneck mission to shut down a sexual predator, Anthony teams up with state medical board investigator and military medical tech Camilla Black to uncover the string of suicides, broken lives and crimes strewn in the psychiatrist’s wake. Along the way, Anthony and Camilla discover that they’re not alone in a race to strip the psychiatrist of his license to kill.
A thriller inspired by the controversy over anti-depressant drug therapies for children, ethical and criminal issues in psychiatry and the power of Big Pharma, FATAL REMEDY is a chilling journey into the darkest corners of modern medicine.

“Everyone in the Olina family, living and dead, knows that Magel keeps human body parts in her freezer.”
From the beginning of the novel, the provocative story defies the Minnesota-nice stereotype while inhabiting the territory of Fargo, the movie and mini-series, in all its darkly humorous glory. Magel’s Daughter highlights the deadly manipulation of matriarchal power within a Norwegian family in northern Minnesota, a chilly world of hallucination, incest, and severed heads. It is wickedly funny with a touch of magical realism.
On the surface, it is an episodic blitz through the last days of Karin Brix’s sanity. By the end, Karin has lost it, and it’s all her mother’s fault. Magel is a classic femme fatale who has grown old and spoiled everyone’s lives just like her mother, and her mother’s mother. Magel is the reigning matriarch, and Karin is on her way to becoming just like her, though struggling to reclaim herself as an artist after years of raising two sons in an unsatisfying marriage. Karin is assisted in her endeavors by lively hallucinations of her ancestors. And during Karin’s struggles, her father’s glass eye weaves through her imagination as the only sound counsel amid the chaos.
This is a work of unbridled inventiveness and rare insight that takes the reader on an unexpected joy ride through uncharted waters. Buckle up! And prepare to be astonished.

The Cat Wore Electric Goggles
By Ian Hutson
Twelve mildly amusing fictions in vague science from an old-fashioned English gentleman who believes wholeheartedly in the cast iron foundation of rocket ships, good manners and always firing a warning shot over the heads of any belligerent mob before sending in the memsahib to duff ’em up.
If variety is the spice of life then this collection is a damnably splendid curry of improbable human conditions and improbable human beings. The ingredients include a spot of gentle medieval scifi, proper rocket ships, alien invasion of England, secret government satellites crashing and releasing stockpiled dinosaur DNA, insane Cold War time travel, groovy Victorian orang-utans in space, the televising of England’s first Moon landing, a very rude first contact, young Mr Darwin’s explanation of evolution placed in startling juxtaposition to flora and fauna on a distant planet, one or two maritime ghosts, a terrifying new virus and a detective with a serious career problem. I refrain for obvious reasons from mentioning here the elderly ladies in fur bikinis, and the least said about the Austin-Morris Motor Car Company’s robotic labour relations the better. Suffice it to say that the man from the past isn’t happy, and all’s well that ends well, provided that you’re a whale.
You won’t be a better person for having read this collection, but you will have a very respectable frown and a ruddy good permanently raised eyebrow under which to secure your monocle. Life is such utter nonsense.
