Eleven interlinked stories tell the tale of a boy coming of age in Kailua-Kona, a Hawaiian fishing village. Sonny Mendoza is a little different from the rest of the men in his family. Salisbury explores characters like Aunty Pearl, a full-blooded Hawaiian as regal as the queens of old; cool Jack, from L.A., who starts a gang and dares Sonny to be brave enough, cruel enough, to join; mysterious Melanie, who steals his heart; and Deeps, the shark hunter. But the most memorable character is the sea itself: inviting, unpredictable, deadly. Mendoza men are brave men, but Sonny's courage is of a different kind. Why can't he love and trust the water as the men of his family are meant to do? From the Paperback edition.

Pass through fairy tales into the magic of invisible worlds in these opulent stories by a beloved fantasy icon and author of the classic Riddlemaster trilogy.

You’ll discover a ravishing undine and her mortal bridegroom who is more infatuated with politics than pleasure, a time-traveling angel forbidden to intervene in Cotton Mather’s religious ravings, a wizard seduced in his youth by the Faerie Queen returning with a treasure that is rightfully hers, and an overachieving teenage mage tricked into discovering her true name very close to home.

ALONG BLUESKIN ROAD is a rich and diverse collection of poems from one of New Zealand's leading poets. Whether tender, lyrical, quirky or comic, the poems are invariably richly imaginative and beautifully crafted. Many of the poems were written in Dunedin during James Norcliffe's tenure as Burns Fellow and are imbued with a sense of this most poetic and individual of New Zealand cities; other poems derive from places as diverse as Borneo and the antebellum American South. Alan Riach wrote of A Kind of Kingdom: 'An atmosphere of summer lightning plays around James Norcliffe's poems . . . they act as tilted mirrors, sharp-edged postcards . . .' And of Rat Tickling, Claire Hero has written: '[the poems are] always exploring the raw edges of the sensuous, the beauty that shares its bed with danger . . . Norcliffe has given us a book as beautiful as a polished knife . . .'. Poems in along Blueskin Road have been published worldwide in such journals as Sport and Landfall (New Zealand), Island and Southerly (Australia), Antigonish and Malahat Reviews (Canada), Gargoyle and Sycamore and Manhattan Reviews (United States).

THE GREEN, THE BLACK, AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA is the debut novel by writing partners Balestri & Celeste introducing Summer Kane, a 17-year-old lifeguard on Narragansett Beach, and Gabriel, a handsome young fisherman working on a fishing trawler out of Point Judith, Rhode Island, who guards a deep secret. Eight years before, Summer lost her only brother in a gigantic freak wave while sailing with her family in Narragansett Bay. Traumatized by the accident, she spent her childhood mostly alone, practicing the magic tricks her brother James had taught her and swimming in the ocean near her house. Equal parts smart and athletic and awkward and nerdy, her self-sufficiency is thrown for a loop when she meets Gabriel, who seems out of place in the company of the thick-necked, rough fishermen of New England. And he appears and disappears with unnerving frequency at odd times at the beach. Summer and Gabriel are instantly drawn to each other, but Summer’s father, a high-ranking government scientist, inexplicably forbids her from seeing him. Summer defies her father and sneaks off to see Gabriel—and stumbles upon his secret. In the adventure that ensues, Summer learns something profound and unexpected about herself.
