A Novel
Linda LeGarde Grover
Publication: April 2019

Two lost sisters find family, and themselves, among the voices of an Ojibwe reservation.

"A gift of story across generations of Native American women. Grover creates a tapestry of history and imagination, a weaving of perspectives beautiful and wise, a collection of truths that anchors and honors the experiences of Indigenous women."
-Kao Kalia Yang,
author of The Song Poet: A Memoir of My Father

"A moving story of loss and recovery in Native America. Riding on the wave of this poignant novel are some of the most important issues affecting American Indians today, including the loss of family and heritage and the destruction and disappearance of American Indian women. A remarkable achievement."
-David Treuer

When these ducks go to the pond, it is Bim, Bam, Bop . . . and Oona, always last.

"Last is a blot on my life," she says to her frog friend, Roy. "I don't feel as big as a duck should feel." But she's good with gizmos, Roy reminds her. So Oona tinkers with things, scraps, and strings, and eventually creates just the right gadget to get her to the pond first.

Spunky Oona will inspire and delight all who see her final triumphant creation. A tale about being true to yourself, building confidence, and finding friendship,  Bim, Bam, Bop . . . and Oona is sure to bring smiles to readers and listeners of all ages.


Digital Subterfuge in Global Capitalism
Nick Dyer-Witheford and Svitlana Matviyenko

Uncovering the class conflicts, geopolitical dynamics, and aggressive capitalism propelling the militarization of the internet.

"Engaging, imaginative, and thorough."
-Benjamin Noys,
author of Malign Velocities

"Sweeping in scope, precise with details, and penetrating in its theoretical analysis, Cyberwar and Revolution is a superbly crafted account. Nick Dyer-Witherford and Svitlana Matviyenko attend to the specificities of tactics and technologies in light of geopolitical hierarchies and shifting configurations around imperialism and capitalism that animate the direction and impact of cyberwar across the globe. Erudite and yet riveting, Cyberwar and Revolution could not be more timely and urgent."
-Gabriella Coleman,
author of Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy

-Adam Rogers,
deputy editor of
Wired and author of Proof: The Science of Booze

"Dan Golding's wonderful book strikes a perfect balance between criticism and knowledgeable fandom. E ssential reading for anyone with an interest in media franchising, globalization, media industries, and entertainment in the Disney era."
