    The Song Of King Gesar
    Alai - Hardback - Canongate
    Set partly in ancient Tibetan society, where evil spirits mingle with the lives of humans, and partly in modern-day Tibet, 'The Song of King Gesar' tells of two lives inextricably entwined. Gesar, the youngest and bravest of the gods, has been sent down to the human world to defeat the demons that plague the lives of ordinary people and threaten to enslave them.

    J.J. Abrams - Hardback - Canongate
    In his first-ever idea for a novel, Abrams conceived of and developed a multi-layered literary puzzle of love and adventure. At its core, we have a book of mysterious provenance. In the margins, another tale unfolds: hand-scribbled notes, questions, and confrontations between two readers. Between the pages, online, and in the real world, you'll find evidence of their interaction, ephemera that brings this tale vividly to life.
  • Cover scan of Scotland's Jesus
    Scotland's Jesus: The Only Officially Non-Racist Comedian
    Frankie Boyle - Paperback - HarperCollinsPublishers
    Reading 'Scotland's Jesus' should be like being called into the living room by your child shouting that they see a little red dot on the head of a TV newscaster, then riding the white hot bullet through the propaganda circuitry of his or her exploding brain. It's a funny book about the news, partly because it was decided that a pornographic book about Scottish Independence wouldn't really sell. In chapters ranging from international politics to the animal world, 'Scotland's Jesus' is allowed the opportunity to showcase his increasingly unsympathetic worldview and disintegrating psyche.

    Shades: The Short Life And Tragic Death Of Erich Schaedler
    Colin Leslie - Hardback - Black & White Publishing
    Long before the deaths of Wales manager Gary Speed and Germany goalkeeper Robert Enke shocked football, the Scottish game was forced to deal with a numbing death of its own over Christmas 1985. International full-back Erich Schaedler, aged 36, was found dead in a Borders beauty spot, with a shotgun by his side and no suicide note or motive for taking his own life. A straightforward suicide? So it seemed at the time, but family and friends are not so sure, and to this day mystery surrounds his tragic death. For the first times, 'Shades' presents an intimate portrait of a man who died in the very prime of life.

    The Story Of Antigone
    Ali Smith; Sophocles - Hardback - Pushkin Children's Books
    'The crow crossed the sky, slow-beating her wings. Beat, beat, beat. It was night, not yet morning, and her feathers were so black that she coasted the air invisible above the city wall.' Thus begins Ali Smith's retelling of Sophocles' tragedy about a young Theban princess who decides to bury her dishonoured brother Polynices, against King Creon's express orders - with heart-breaking consequences.
