You ever have a neighbour whose behaviour is so mind-bogglingly inconsiderate and so suicide-inducingly annoying that you just want to ask him, in a polite Canadian way, to please stop?

TurboJetslams isn’t like that.

TurboJetslams tells the tale of one person’s pathetic and hilarious attempts to singlehandedly stop the destruction of a little piece of beautiful Canadian wilderness by the increasing numbers of idiots who couldn’t care less.

Dogs Just Want To Have Fun

Jass Richards

Picking up where This Will Not Look Good on My Resume left off (sort of—is it a job if you really like what you’re doing?) (and don’t really get paid for it?), Dogs Just Wanna Have Fun is a collection of funny, feel-good, happy-ever-after dog stories told by the ever-quirky, ever-sarcastic Brett. Also featured are her own two dogs, Kessie and Snookums, and her four regulars, Chum, Hunk, Little Miss, and Spunky Doo.

License To Do That
Jass Richards

Rev and Dylan return from their ‘blasphemy tour’ to discover that Canada has adopted the Parent Licence Act: people who wish to become parents must apply for, and meet certain requirements before being granted, a licence. What if? After all, hairdressers and plumbers have to be licensed.

Dylan, freelance journalist, investigates, interviews, and observes; Rev, loose cannon, solves an ‘illegal fertilization’ mystery. Both occasionally get stoned and silly, and deal with a baby wolf who has adopted them.

The Blasphemy Tour
Jass Richards

In this sequel to The Road Trip Dialogues, two Canadian atheists go on a cross-country speaking tour of American Bible Colleges, and oh god, they end up committing all sorts of blasphemies.

Philosophy meets stand-up.

Road Trip Dialogues
Jass Richards

Rev and Dylan are intelligent, sensitive, idealistic, enthusiastic, and – utter failures. When they reconnect years after teacher’s college, Rev is en route from Sudbury to the Montreal fireworks festival. (Something with great social and political import.) (Oh shut up. I tried. For twenty years. So to hell with it.) Dylan goes along for the ride. (Typical.)

Snow White Gets Her Say
chris wind

Snow White Gets Her Say is a collection of the classic fairy tales retold – what would have happened if Gretel, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and others had been strong and critical girls and women living today?

Thus Saith Eve
chris wind

Eve should be blamed for choosing the apple? For choosing knowledge over obedience? Knowledge of good and evil? She thinks not. And, well, you can imagine what Noah’s wife had to say about his grand idea…

Thus Saith Eve is a collection of monologues, each written from the point of view of one of the women in The Bible as if she had a contemporary feminist consciousness.

Deare Sister
chris wind

Deare Sister consists of letters that might have been written by Lady Godiva, Milton’s daughter, Rubens’ model, Mozart’s mother, Freud’s wife, Plato’s students, and others – assuming a feminist consciousness. What would they say?

Satellites Out of Orbit
chris wind

Satellites Out of Orbit includes (in print) Snow White, Soliloquies, Thus Saith Eve, UnMythed, and Deare Sister.

A genre-busting collection of elegant and provocative prose and poetry, a solid work of research in women’s studies, a valuable resource for high school English teachers seeking new material for their Shakespeare and Mythology units, and a goldmine for actresses wanting fresh audition pieces.

This Will Not Look Good On My Resume
Jass Richards

Everyone gets fired at least once. And if not, well, you’re just not trying very hard. And we all think of brilliant and immature ‘shoulda saids’ and ‘shoulda dones’ for weeks after. (Okay, years.)

A collection of loosely related stories (featuring a strong female protagonist). An inadvertent how-to guide. A quirky bit of fun that slaps you upside the head. Dave Barry meets Murphy Brown.

Particivision and other stories
chris wind

This collection of short stories presents a socially conscious critique of various issues in our society by re-visioning significant attitudes and activities: watching tv, going to school, shopping, advertising, hunting, environmentalism, militarism, suicide, the news, competition, sex, religion, government.

Social commentary and activism via fiction.
