Demers revives the memory of journalist Miriam Green Ellis, an all-but-forgotten feminist, suffragist, and agricultural reporter who documented the modernist sphere for over four decades and who refused to be confined to the "women's pages." With written material from the University of Alberta's Miriam Green Ellis Collection, accompanied by an excellent selection of photographs, Ellis's inimitable voice and views on Albertans, westerners, and Canadians in the early decades of the twentieth century emerge clearly. Readers interested in Canadian women studies, journalism, or feminism will find Ellis's highly coloured perspective both entertaining and informative.

Space And Place

In the 25 years since its original publication, Space and Place has not only established the discipline of human geography, but it has proven influential in such diverse fields as theater, literature, anthropology, psychology, and theology. Eminent geographer Yi-Fu Tuan considers the ways in which people feel and think about space, how they form attachments to home, neighborhood, and nation, and how feelings about space and place are affected by the sense of time. He suggests that place is security and space is freedom: we are attached to the one and long for the other. Whether he is considering sacred versus "biased" space, mythical space and place, time in experiential space, or cultural attachments to space, Tuan's analysis is thoughtful and insightful.

Spawned from the classical horror-hunt of Inspector Legrasse in H.P. Lovecraft's seminal tale "The Call of Cthulhu", the further adventures of Inspector Legrasse have been taken directly from the notes of Professor William Channing Webb of the American Archaelogical Association and written up for your edification by author C.J. Henderson, the dedicated chronicler who has exhaustively reported the occult adventures of Anton Zarnak, Jack Hagee and Teddy London, amongst many others. These seven tales detail the epic confrontation of an unsuspecting mankind with the unimaginable horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos. After a wait of over half a century, from the combined hands of H.P. Lovecraft and C.J. Henderson finally come the answers to all the maddening riddles of the legendary first tale of the Cthulhu Mythos, "The Call of Cthulhu". Stories include: "The Call of Cthulhu" by H.P. Lovecraft, and the following stories by C.J. Henderson: "Patiently Waiting", "To Cast Out Fear", "So Free We Seem", "Locked Room", "Where Shadow Falls" and "Nothing To Fear But Dust". Color cover by Ben Fogletto. Interior frontspiece by Erica Henderson. Introduction by Robert M. Price.
