  • Cover scan of Robbie Burns - Witch Hunter
    Robbie Burns - Witch Hunter
    Gordon Rennie - Hardback - Renegade
    Robert Burns' place in the literary canon is such that books have been published in almost every genre that reference his work. This though, is perhaps the first scene by scene depiction of Tam o' Shanter in graphic novel form. Imagining that the events of the epic happened to Burns himself it serves both as an excellent and humorous read in itself and as an accessible in for reluctant readers of Burns' original prose.

    Opium And Empire: The Lives And Careers Of William Jardine And James Matheson
    Richard J. Grace - Hardback - McGill-Queen's University Press
    In 1832 William Jardine and James Matheson established what would become the greatest British trading company in East Asia in the nineteenth century. Jardine and Matheson, recognized as giants on the scene at Macao, Canton, and Hong Kong, have often been depicted as one-dimensional villains whose opium commerce was ruthless and whose imperial drive was insatiable. In 'Opium and Empire', Richard Grace explores the depths of each man, their complicated and sometimes inconsistent internal workings, and their achievements and failures.
