New Englanders know that cranberries are not for holidays alone.
For centuries, this tart fruit--a staple in the Yankee diet since before it was domesticated--has reigned over the cranberry heartland of Barnstable and Plymouth Counties, Massachusetts. Dozens of recipes that utilize the "humble fruit" have risen up over the years, the most popular being cranberry sauce, which one imaginative New Englander paired with lobster. The popularity of the berry exploded in the 1840s, and despite occasional setbacks such as the great pesticide scare of 1959, demand continues to rise to this day. Authors Robert S. Cox and Jacob Walker trace the evolution of cranberry culture in the Bay State, exploring the delectable history of this quintessential New England industry.

“The narrating voice in Living Room is insistent but quiet, though it sometimes achieves loudness without any apparent effort. At other times it seems to continue in the -reader’s mind even after stopping for the day.
It is an important new presence, faintly disturbing and endly attractive.”—John Ashbery Readers may be voyeurs, but the subtler gifts are not for the fast glancers. Take a good slow second look at Geoff Bouvier’s Living Room . . . bravura performances, both accessible and elegant, both immediate and subtle, both hilarious and serious. . . . With virtuoso reversals, switches of vantage, changes of scale, inside-outings, they accomplish metaphysical, not only physical, effects.—from the introduction by Heather McHugh Each of Geoff Bouvier’s prose poems brims with industry and rest attention, and the dramas they contain are manifold. Here a solitary mind and there a whole social sphere are cross-sectioned for observation at moments rife with emotional collisions—awesome tediums, mad reliefs. In style and substance, Living Room enacts the urgency one feels to stretch out against cramped quarters.
Introduced by Heather McHugh. From Savings Plan To save things, collect them in an unremarkable place—behind a row of history books, in the corner of the garage—where you wouldn’t usually look. Then forget about these things completely. When you remember what you’re saving—a photograph of an ex, the fattening candy bars—but forget where you’re saving it, you may worry, even curse yourself. But remember how this is your plan, and how the plan is succeeding. The savings are protected, hidden away, even if you can’t find them until many days after a rainy day. Geoff Bouvier holds degrees from the University of Connecticut and from Bard College. He lives in San Diego, where he waits tables at Tapenade Restaurant and publishes journalistic prose with the San Diego Reader.
Bus Station: Unbound is a fable about about finding yourself in-between places and times, an interactive fiction where the narrative decisions lie in your own hands and a grown-up "Choose your own adventure" like none you've ever read before. If you like Tales of the Unexpected, Twin Peaks and Welcome to Night Vale, you'll love this. You're heading home for Christmas. There’s a snowstorm, the roads are gridlocked and you’re stranded in a bus station known as the North’s most monstrous building.
People here are behaving strangely.
A group of teenagers seem to have vanished into thin air. Your parents' marriage is on the rocks. The whole town is traumatised and grieving and snow falls and falls like it will never stop. Outside the church bells are ringing… Bus Station: Unbound is the first in a trilogy of fully interactive novels from Curious Tales, one which tracks your journey and presents different moods, characters, genres and styles depending on the choices you make.
Is this a satire about an iconic building under threat from a short-sighted council, a horror story about infernal retribution and the tyranny of choice or a tale of guilt, home, grief and forgetfulness? You decide. Read, remix and play again. CURIOUS TALES is an author-led publishing collective.
