RIDE THE DREAM by Vickie Fagan
Eight drunken members of a snowmobile club in Northern Ontario desperately attempt to hold on to their high school years – the time they regard as the best moments of their lives.
MARBLE CITY by Kevin Parnell
When a young superhero is found murdered, Detective Jason Shaw’s investigation sets off a spiral of events. From smokey jazz clubs, to back alley clinics, to the local tabloid newspaper and the offices of City Hall; the employees, friends, family and lovers of all involved are caught up in the mystery. When a new masked villain appears, everyone is in peril in Marble City.
