“So, I am nine years old and in Year Five at school and I am a weirdo. I know I am a weirdo ‘cos all the other kids at school tell me that a lot. The teachers don’t call me weirdo but they do get angry with me, a lot... Dad and Mrs Wilkes argue sometimes and they both get very angry and me and Mum sit in the middle of them watching, like at a tennis match. And then I get sent home for the rest of the day and when I go back to school it starts all over again.” Rae Simpson, Education Officer, is struggling to recover from her marriage to a control freak. Richard Banks, 9-year-old student, is floundering as he tries to please both his controlling father and his headmistress. A difficult task, as the very thing that pleases his father is the thing that most puts his school place at risk: Richard gives messages from the dead. Whilst sceptical Rae tries to work with Richard, his overzealous father and a head teacher who thinks compromise is a dirty word, her ex-husband arrives back on the scene. As control rapidly begins to fall away from them both, Rae and Richard find themselves victims of dramatic events that unite them in a way that Rae never thought possible. Soon enough, the question is not ‘Can Rae save Richard’s school place?’ but ‘Can Rae save Richard’s life?’ I Hear You Calling is a fast-moving story of love, loss, trust and control that will take you into areas you may never have visited before. A contemporary novel with a paranormal flavour, it will appeal to those with an interest in spirituality and what lies beyond our world.

Suppose you could enter the mind of a beautiful woman; see what she sees, feel what she feels, and control her completely. Suppose you could turn back the hands of your watch, and relive your life. Suppose the stories you wrote kept coming true.

Manufacturing threats of blackmail against himself, petty crook Trevor English convinces his lover, Helen, to pay off his fictional victimizer. But when Helen suggests that an investigator be brought in to find out who was behind the extortion, Trevor finds he must either maintain his intricate deception or end his affair—either option capable of spinning his life wildly out of his control. Praise for the Books by Pablo D’Stair “D’Stair is clearly a master. Likely Jean Patrick Manchette reincarnated…” —Matt Phillips, author of Countdown and The Bad Kind of Lucky “Somehow again and again you’re drawn in…you get used to the book’s rhythm and follow it because the work is obsessive. We find ourselves in a languid kind of suspense, bracing ourselves…” —Bret Easton Ellis, author of American Psycho “Pablo D’Stair doesn’t just write like a house afire, he writes like the whole city’s burning, and these words he’s putting on the page are the thing that can save us all.” —Stephen Graham Jones, Bram Stoker Award-winner “Pablo D’Stair is defining the new writer [and the new film maker]. D’Stair’s late realism needs to be included in any examination of the condition of the novel.” —Tony Burgess, award-winning author/screenwriter “Like Kerouac before him, I felt there was one roll of paper on which the story was typed. And there’s a rhythm behind it. Not the speedy bop of jazz this time, more an urban dubstep. Shadows and edges becoming audible.” —Nigel Bird, author of Smoke

My friendly warning to the fortunate readers of Dazz & All That Jazz is to buckle up; you are about to read a fascinating and historical book of poetry by Sabine Simon, also known as Dazz. Dazz will show you how a young woman from the island of Haiti can turn into a charismatic poet and share with you her true love experiences in America where she started her writing journey in 1996. Like a lot of poets, writing becomes a therapy after losing a loved one and after a painful break up with someone you love. When you try very hard to escape the pain, what can you do? You write about it. In this poem Escaping Pain, the author talks about her wrist, her knife, her blood, and her life. It is very unfortunate when you aimed for the best and you end up facing the worst relationship of your life. Would I Be Wrong is another title of one of the poems in this book that will give you hope when you are down. This poem will place you in a church praising God, regardless if you were willing to do so or not. Would I be wrong to want to be on the mountaintop? How wrong can I be when I walk with the one who possesses eternity? I Am Sorry is another title that shows the inner conscience of the poetess, that she is human, she has a big heart, and she is willing to forgive. But the pains will never be forgotten because of the scars that keep on reminding you of the sorrowful moments in your life. This kaleidoscopic summary of countless events that you are about to read from Dazzs poetry is breathtaking and is indeed textually significant vis--vis anyone who has been in good/bad relationship. Dazzs poetry was written with an innate passion and unconditional love. This book was written in raw accuracy of what you, the reader, could have been or are dealing with in your relationships as we speak.

'I am Zhang, alone with my light, and in that light I think for a moment that I am free.' Imagine a world where Chinese Marxism has vanquished the values of capitalism and Lenin is the prophet of choice. A cybernetic world where the new charioteers are flyers, human-powered kites dancing in the skies over New York in a brief grab at glory. A world where the opulence of Beijing marks a new cultural imperialism, as wealthy urbanites flirt with interactive death in illegal speakeasies, and where Arctic research stations and communes on Mars are haunted by their own fragile dangers. A world of fear and hope, of global disaster and slow healing, where progress can only be found in the cracks of a crumbling hegemony. This is the world of Zhang. An anti-hero who's still finding his way, treading a path through a totalitarian order - a path that just might make a difference.
