New Zealand--Aotearoa--Land of the Long White Cloud: the island remnants of the sunken continent of Zealandia. With its boiling geysers, active volcanoes, earthquakes, deep water fjords and lush forests of fern, these are realms once home to forgotten creatures like the giant Moa bird Dinornis. But there is something else... In this collection we find an Aotearoa with the proud history, myths, and legends of the Maori, and the impacts of the white settler's later presence, and the blended society that encompasses both, but we see the shadow of other things. Herein lies the cosmic horror of the Old Ones of the Cthulhu Mythos in an anthology featuring Lovecraftian tales from some of New Zealand's finest speculative fiction writers. Stay brave. Because here there be monsters.

Shortlisted for the 2018 Man Booker International Prize From Booker Prize-winner and literary phenomenon Han Kang, a lyrical and disquieting exploration of personal grief, written through the prism of the color white While on a writer's residency, a nameless narrator wanders the twin white worlds of the blank page and snowy Warsaw. THE WHITE BOOK becomes a meditation on the color white, as well as a fictional journey inspired by an older sister who died in her mother's arms, a few hours old. The narrator grapples with the tragedy that has haunted her family, an event she colors in stark white--breast milk, swaddling bands, the baby's rice cake-colored skin--and, from here, visits all that glows in her memory: from a white dog to sugar cubes. As the writer reckons with the enormity of her sister's death, Han Kang's trademark frank and chilling prose is softened by retrospection, introspection, and a deep sense of resilience and love. THE WHITE BOOK--ultimately a letter from Kang to her sister--offers powerful philosophy and personal psychology on the tenacity and fragility of the human spirit, and our attempts to graft new life from the ashes of destruction.

A dead campaigner. Two grieving families. A detective partnership who cannot quit. After a turbulent couple of years, private investigator Adam Park may have finally discovered a place to settle down and pursue his desire to help those less fortunate than himself: New Zealand, the Land of the Long White Cloud. A big part of his choice to quit traveling is his new partner: long-time friend Jess, who helps tame the dark impulses that have driven him in the past. But when a client dies just days after engaging the pair, both are curious. When it starts to look a lot like suicide, the client’s estranged widow begs them to delve deeper into the man’s past. And it is a past filled with desperate actions, fake identities, and paranoia. And that paranoia brought the dead man into conflict with a major corporation. When Adam and Jess latch onto the corporation’s activities in the small mountain town of Shelly Hill, they start to ask the same questions their client did: why is a subsidiary buying up land so quickly? Why are corporate executives working closely with a brutal drugs gang? And how far will they go to protect their interests? Under the Long White Cloud takes a man trying to change and puts his resolve to the test, pushing him to the very limits of his willpower, both emotionally and physically. For a fast paced international thriller in the beautiful setting of New Zealand, pick up the sixth Adam Park novel today. ____________________________________________________________ The full Adam Park private investigator series: 1.
