Thirkell, Fred; Scullion, Bob
This award-winning biography by respected postcard historians Fred Thirkell and Bob Scullion pays tribute to photographer Frank Gowen, one of British Columbia's greatest artistic eyes. The book focuses on the life and selected works of Frank Gowen, whose images and name will always be synonymous with the photographic history of Greater Vancouver. Gowen came to Vancouver during the First World War and established himself as "the Stanley Park photographer". Although he travelled throughout British Columbia, many of his finest images are from the parks, streets, and historic sites of the Lower Mainland. Gowen's Greater Vancouver extended from White Rock to the Sunshine Coast, as he explored the playgrounds, edifices, and landmarks of a vibrant West Coast community. 176pp.

Edited By Anders, Lou
Science Fiction is the genre that looks at the implications of technology on society, which in this age of exponential technological growth makes it the most relevant branch of literature going. This is only the start, and the close of the 21st century will look absolutely nothing like its inception. It has been said that science fiction is an ongoing dialogue about the future, and the front line of that dialogue is the short story. The field has a long history of producing famous anthologies to showcase its distinguished short fiction, but it has been several years since there has been a prestigious all-original science fiction anthology series. "Fast Forward" is offered in the tradition of Damon Knight's prestigious and influential anthology series, "Orbit", and Frederik Pohl's landmark "Star SF". "Fast Forward" marks the start of a new hard science fiction anthology series, dedicated to presenting the vanguard of the genre and charting the undiscovered country that is the future. 409pp.

Singer, Linda
The emergence of AIDS in contemporary culture has not only produced a vast discourse on the disease but has provoked an anxious proliferation of sites of erotic danger. In Erotic Welfare , Linda Singer argues that we are currently living in an "age of epidemic", fueled by a "panic logic" in which contemporary discourse on sexuality and on a variety of social problems - teenage pregnancy, prostitution, and drug addiction, have come to replicate the discourse of contagion. Singer traces the effects of epidemic on the growth of regulatory mechanisms for the control of sexuality, and explores the ways this development has affected women's efforts to secure reproductive freedom; the construction of femininity within the media; and efforts to displace the hegemony of the nuclear family in the cultural imaginary. Her work forms a trenchant critique of sexuality in an age of discipline, where bodies and their pleasures have become dense sites of regulatory power. 210pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Edges of covers rubbed. Head and tail of spine rubbed.
