In Adjacentland, a disquieting new work from award-winning novelist Rabindranath Maharaj, a man awakens in a strange institution called the Compound with no memory of his past. In dreamlike prose Maharaj weaves a story of fragments, where our narrator comes to believe that he was once a comic book writer who warned that the reliance on artificial intelligence would make the imagination obsolete and subversive. The Death Scene Artist is the debut novel from award-nominated author Andrew Wilmot who skillfully interweaves film scripts, blog posts, letters and obituaries to tell the story of two people struggling to find their identities. www.wolsakandwynn.ca
