"We gladly feast on those who would subdue us."
The We Are Become Pals book is here! You can buy it right now, for $16 in hardcover! It is a book that feels nice to read, and feels nice to hold in your hand. In hardcover it makes the perfect gift for your own best friend.
Itís a hard book to describe, but this is the blurb we came up with:
We are Become Pals is the story of Jane and Helen, and of their friendship. As with all friendships, it is a story filled with cops, lockpicks, astronauts, secret codes, face punching and quiet moments where you realize that you arenít alone in the world.
The hardcover has all the original chapters (which you can still read online for free right here), and all new material that follows their friendship further into their lives, as they get old and crotchety and awesome together.
investigative report on immigrants funding businesses in PEI (where I'm from!). It's a really complicated, interesting story, the basics of which are: under a former immigration policy, prospective immigrants offered $200,000 to local businesses. They were supposed to be actively involved in those businesses (and so, settle in PEI) but as it happened, in many of these cases the new immigrants never met their business 'partners', and their investments were not returned. Well worth a look, and nice job, King's journalists!
