I have been dreaming
those dreams   of meaning
that come from the waters
of dreaming     deep
like drowned men
to the gold skin
of the ocean

 

“By turns delightfully black, singingly lyrical and/or innocently nonsensical. Here is a poet outside the mainstream with his own refreshingly original voice and bone[s] to pick.”  —Gillian Harding-Russell, author of I Forgot to Tell You

 

Company's come. In a ramshackle mansion, meet a family in the same condition—ancient, decayed. There's the brooding Duke, and his riotous brother. There's Grandam, lost in wilds of herself. There's a vicar, a philosopher, an angel, a ghost or two. And somewhere above them all, in a ruined garret…

 Rolli does it again! In another clever, witty and touching collection, Rolli rollicks again through gardens and cemeteries peopled with dreams, goddesses, characters dead and alive, dukes stricken within gout, gracious skeletons and morose angels.

 IN PERSON: The author is available for media interviews and readings/discussions, and will be presenting his work at a number of venues in Canada and the U.S. Please contact the publisher for more information.

Charles Anderson (Rolli) does it again. In another clever, witty and touching collection, Rolli rollicks again through gardens and cemeteries peopled with dreams, goddesses, characters dead and alive, dukes stricken within gout, gracious skeletons and morose angels.

 ToRussiaWithLoveCoverMock sm

 "To Russia with Love" is how a group of Montreal artists and collaborators answer the phobias arising out of Russia. This is their stand against the recent wave of bigotry and violence and the realization of the moral imperative to not remain passive in the face of hatred and injustice.

Led by visual artist and photographer Damian Siqueiros, "To Russia with Love" portrays iconic gay and lesbian Russians in all of Siqueiros's usual detail and flare. Along with his collaborators, Mr. Siqueiros is passionate in his belief that fighting hatred with hatred is as nonsensical as trying to extinguish a fire with more fire. There is no condemnation for those perpetrating injustice, instead these portraits serve to remind us of the beauty of love and to validate the couples and the identities of our Russian brothers and sisters in the LGBT community.

Damian Siqueiros is a photographer and visual artist. He is the winner of several grants and prizes such as the Public’s choice Scotia Bank Prize 2010 in Montreal’s Art Souterrain. He's exhibited in museums and galleries in Mexico, Spain, Paris, New York (The Gabarron Foundation), Washington D.C. (Art Museum of the Americas), and Canada; and collaborating with international magazines such as Vogue Mexico, Elle, Esquire, Porrua and Les Grands Ballets Canadiens of Montreal.


 

 

Set in Montreal, Ensemble takes us through the throes of existential crises as lives and marriages are overturned by a man’s restless yearning. A philosopher is suddenly forced to face the questions he lectures on when they materialize out of the theoretical and into the practical after he falls for a student in his class. Meanwhile his wife, an accomplished musician is left to deal with the disintegration of their marriage and the new silence that descends upon her life as she dissects her husband’s inner workings and confronts the object of his desire. Told in clinical honesty, Ensemble deconstructs love and relationships in the 21st century.

Thomas Phillips is a novelist, composer, and teacher known for the minimalist aesthetic that informs his work. In addition to three novels and two collections of horror stories, he has created music for numerous CD releases, installations, and for collaborations in dance and theater. He is also the author of a scholarly monograph on minimalism and has taught in the disciplines of literature and fine arts at various universities in the US, Québec, and Finland.

LogicKnowledgeandCriticalThinking sm

We'll be releasing our 2nd academic title through our BabalonBOOKs division! Logic, Knowledge and Critical Thinking by Paul Catanu is a must read for anyone studying the Humanities or wishing for a survey of the history of the development of thought in the Western World.

He presently lectures at Champlain College in St-Lambert. Heidegger’s Nietzsche: Being and Becoming, is his first book. Paul is currently working on a research project he is calling the “Ontology of the Image” which traces the dualism of the image and the idea in Western philosophy and civilization, back to Plato.
