God Might Forgive Gershwin Burr : After his father's death, Gershwin Burr turns to stealing books as a remedy for his depression, but his thievery spirals out of control.

An underachieving young man who accidentally discovers he’s the world’s most talented athlete. A humble school photographer who sees her life transformed into a fairy tale. A rabbinical student whose regimented existence is turned on its head after beginning an affair with a woman outside his religion. A novelist who abandons motherhood because of the burden it imposes on her writing. A mountain climber whose fame is matched only by his reclusiveness. A waitress whose self-esteem rises or falls each time a certain stranger visits her restaurant. A woman who leaves her comfortable home and successful business to work in a faraway slum in the belief that, only there, can she repair her broken life. An abhorrently behaved physicist who, in all likelihood, has proven the existence of God. These are only some of the unforgettable eccentrics, loners and misfits who populate the pages of Jupiter The Stupider. Mixing folklore, satire and stark realism, Brian Prousky has created a wide-ranging and uncommonly enchanting collection of stories.
A smuggler. A Temptress. A dark secret. The only person who can help her is the man she must avoid at all costs. Rakishly handsome and equally exasperating Landon Hart is not only a wealthy merchant ship’s captain but also carefully protects his own dangerous secrets. When he discovers a sword-wielding, fiery-haired temptress named Keelan, he isn’t prepared for the impact she has on his tightly guarded heart...nor the trouble she manages to attract. Fiercely independent and equally impetuous Keelan Grey is busy avoiding a marriage of “inconvenience” when a deathbed confession from a loved one plunges her into a dark plot of deception and revenge. Desperate for help, Keelan finds an unlikely ally in an antagonistic but irresistible smuggler, Landon Hart. A Thrilling Women’s Action & Adventure Romance!
At the centre of this unusual novel of chapter-long sentences lies an unusual protagonist. The survivor of a near-catastrophic fall, he finds himself possessed by peculiar, residual behaviours, the most peculiar of which is a compulsion to expel every drop of pleasure from his life by filling it with repetitive tasks and activities. When an abnormally large, abnormally cruel red butterfly enters his apartment and torments him to the point of delusion and insomnia, he realizes the only way to free himself from its grip is to leave home for an extended period of time and do what is most abhorrent to him: be among people. Wandering the streets, mistaken for the perpetrator of a violent assault by a compassionate university student who takes him in and seeks to rehabilitate him, he remains entirely and infuriatingly resistant to change. Throughout, like a hurricane of events around a static eye, what an intoxicating ride - what a grand experiment – his story is.
Simon and Auden Triller are twins whose only similarity is the surname they share. From an early age, Simon’s life is filled with academic and athletic accomplishments, friends and adults who admire him. As he grows older, his determination to succeed and passion for life are matched only by his unshakable devotion toward his brother, who is unappreciative to the point of contempt. Auden’s life, on the other hand, is as sparse as Simon’s is full. Wanting nothing more than to live on his own unambitious terms, in a world free of comparisons to his twin, he can’t seem to manage the smallest demands without having them turn into desperate predicaments requiring his brother’s help. Satirical, self-eviscerating and world-weary, Auden’s voice guides the reader back and forth in time and place. Gradually and painfully, Auden realizes the solitude he’s chosen for himself is less peaceful than insanity-making. When, finally, he loses his grip on reality, his actions precipitate a tragedy that threatens to permanently sever his fraternal bond, just when he needs Simon most.
