Did you know? We're hosting F.S. Aijazuddin at the store at 6:30 where he'll talk about his book, The Resourceful Fakirs! And he'll be signing copies of the book too!

Hailed as a "fascinating, original and long overdue study" by William Dalrymple, this book is an in-depth look at the Punjab under the rule of Ranjit Singh. The history of this colourful period is traced through the careers of three Muslim brothers who were courtiers at the Sikh Darbar of Lahore. Supplemented with portraits, engravings, maps, and period photographs, this is one of the most historically reliable and eminently readable books on the history of Punjab.

Once upon a midnight dreary (well, not really) Edgar Allan Poe sails from Philadelphia to London to meet his friend, the great detective C. August Dupin.

Poe has inherited a mahogany box containing a collection of letters allegedly written by his grandparents. They were struggling actors who tried to make a living on the London stage but the letters suggest that the couple also stalked well-to-do women at night to slice their clothing and derrieres. Poe hopes the missives are forgeries but Dupin isn't so sure. Soon Poe is stalked by someone who knows about his grandparents and their crimes. And then he remembers disturbing attacks upon him as a child in London - could the perpetrators be connected?

An unnamed defendant stands accused of murder. Just before the Closing Speeches, the young man sacks his lawyer, and decides to give his own defence speech.

He tells us that his barrister told him to leave some things out. Sometimes, the truth can be too difficult to explain, or believe. But he thinks that if he's going to go down for life, he might as well go down telling the truth. There are eight pieces of evidence against him. As he talks us through them one by one, his life is in our hands. We, the reader (member of the jury) must keep an open mind till we hear the end of his story. His defence raises many questions... But at the end of the speeches, only one matters: Did he do it?

Have you read Margaret Atwood's latest book, Hag-Seed, yet?

When Felix is deposed as artistic director of a theatre festival by his devious assistant and longtime enemy, his production of The Tempest is canceled and he is heartbroken. Reduced to a life of exile in rural southern Ontario—accompanied only by his fantasy daughter, Miranda, who died twelve years ago—Felix devises a plan for retribution. Eventually he takes a job teaching Literacy Through Theatre to the prisoners at the nearby Burgess Correctional Institution, and is making a modest success of it when an auspicious star places his enemies within his reach. With the help of their own interpretations, digital effects, and a talented actress and choreographer, the Burgess Correctional Players prepare to video their Tempest. Not surprisingly, they view Caliban as the character with whom they have the most in common. However, Felix has another twist in mind, and his enemies are about to find themselves taking part in an interactive and illusion-ridden version of The Tempest that will change their lives forever. But how will Felix deal with his invisible Miranda’s decision to take a part in the play?
