              Keep a secret. Tell a lie. Protect the family. At all costs. A compulsively readable suspense thriller which will keep guessing and keep you up late into the night. Iluka has been the only home that 18-year-old Ana has ever known. The beautiful wild pine plantation overlooking th...e Pacific Ocean where her grandfather builds furniture, her aunt runs an artists' retreat and her uncle tends the land, is paradise, a private idyll safe from the outside world. But the place holds a violent secret and when a stranger arrives, Ana will need to make a choice - to protect everything - and everyone - she holds dear - or tell the truth and destroy it all. An atmospheric, suspenseful, dark and twisty thriller in the tradition of Daphne du Maurier, Paula Hawkins, Anna Downes and JP Pomare.

              'Barry was never a father to me, but he did become a friend.'-Martin Crump Barry Crump was a titan of New Zealand writing, his semi-autobiographical novels about life as a rugged outdoorsman selling more than a million copies. In his time, he was held up as the quintessential Kiw...i bloke. In our time, the situation is less sure, with Barry now well known for being an unscrupulous brute, womaniser, alcoholic and absentee husband. Barry was also the father of six children - all of them boys. For Ivan, Martin, Stephen, Harry, Erik and Lyall, Barry has always been an enigma that casts a strange shadow over their lives. Sons of a Good Keen Man is their story - the first time they've all gone on record together about their father. Published 25 years after Barry's death, Sons of a Good Keen Man offers straight-and-true anecdotes that grip, entertain, surprise and even provoke a few laughs. Each son writes frankly and movingly about how they have navigated life with or without Barry. Illuminating, essential, at times confronting, and containing never-seen-before photos, Sons of a Good Keen Man is a timely reflection on fatherhood and identity, the legacy of trauma, and how time can both heal and ask new questions.

              Everywhere, the birds: sparrows and skylarks and thrushes, starlings and bellbirds, fantails and pipits - but above them all and louder, the magpies. We are here and this is our tree and we're staying and it is ours and you need to leave and now. Tama is just a helpless chick... when he is rescued by Marnie, and this is where his story might have ended. 'If it keeps me awake,' says Marnie's husband Rob, a farmer, 'I'll have to wring its neck.' But with Tama come new possibilities for the couple's future. Tama can speak, and his fame is growing. Outside, in the pines, his father warns him of the wickedness wrought by humans. Indoors, Marnie confides in him about her violent marriage. The more Tama sees, the more the animal and the human worlds - and all of the precarity, darkness and hope within them - bleed into one another. Like a stock truck filled with live cargo, the story moves inexorably towards its dramatic conclusion: the annual Axeman's Carnival. Part trickster, part surrogate child, part witness, Tama the magpie is the star of this story. Though what he says aloud to humans is often nonsensical (and hilarious with it), the tale he tells us weaves a disturbingly human sense. The Axeman's Carnival is Catherine Chidgey at her finest - comic, profound, poetic and true.

              Farmer Kane Brisco's tools for the physical and mental strains of life on the land. Taranaki farmer and podcaster Kane Brisco started his farmer support page, Farm Fit, to create awareness of the daily pressures on farmers in New Zealand. Kane says when you break down a farmer's ...day - the physical load, the mobility required and the long list of difficult decisions to make - the impact of farming on the body and mind is greatly underestimated. This book is about Kane's journey to address these struggles, and to explain how he's learnt become a better farmer by focusing on staying physically and mentally fit and healthy. It's also about what life on the land can teach the rest of us about resilience, acceptance and relieving stress and pressure.

              Monday Woolridge is a fighter with a face covered in scars and life full of debt. Her Avondale flat has no furniture, her father's dead, her catatonic mother's in an expensive nursing home and her kickboxing gym is going to Thailand. Monday's shitty bartending job pays fifty cent...s over minimum wage, and she desperately needs another way to generate income. Dealing drugs off the dark web with her flatmate JJ looks like it's working - until it really doesn't, and the pair have to flee Tamaki Makaurau to escape the gangsters, the vampires and the ghosts of Monday's past. This is a pacy, heart-twisting, punch-in-the-guts, darkly comic novel that captures life on the poverty line in Aotearoa now. From the award-winning poet and playwright Dominic Hoey, author of Iceland, I Thought We'd Be Famous, and the 2021 SST Short Story Award winner, 1986. Praise for Iceland, his first book "It's kind of renegade literature ... this book has an energy conspicuously absent in much New Zealand fiction."- Steve Braunias, The Spinoff
