"Many mystery buffs have credited Louise Penny with the revival of the type of traditional murder mystery made famous by Agatha Christie. . . . The book's title is a metaphor not only for the month of April but also for Gamache's personal and professional challenges---making this the series standout so far." --Sarah Weinman Welcome to Three Pines, where the cruelest month is about to deliver on its threat. It's spring in the tiny, forgotten village; buds are on the trees and the first flowers are struggling through the newly thawed earth. But not everything is meant to return to life. . . When some villagers decide to celebrate Easter with a séance at the Old Hadley House, they are hoping to rid the town of its evil---until one of their party dies of fright. Was this a natural death, or was the victim somehow helped along? Brilliant, compassionate Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Sûreté du Québec is called to investigate, in a case that will force him to face his own ghosts as well as those of a seemingly idyllic town where relationships are far more dangerous than they seem.

Ernest Buckler’s literary stature was established by the publication of The Mountain and the Valley, which in the author’s own lifetime is already entrenched as a Canadian classic. The same remarkable qualities that led to that acclaim are abundantly present in this second novel: the ever-renewing wondering regard for nature; the incomparable portrayal of human relationships; the complex prose with its carefully chosen words expressing in a cluster of meaning the full impact of an idea or situation. Against a deceptively simple background Ernest Buckler weaves a complicated and intricate design. The setting is a country guesthouse in Nova Scotia -- a kind of dream haven for getting away from it all. Not every passing traveler is welcome. The price of admission is intelligence. So they come, the brilliant, disillusioned ones -- from New York and Connecticut, and from nearer Halifax -- each with his private reason for seeking to escape. It was a dangerous game they played... while the harsh April winds stripped bare their pretentions and the hot sun seared their exposed wounds, inflaming passions they scarcely knew existed, and irrevocably changing their lives... To classify this novel as a work of brilliant analytical insight is t o tell only part of the story. Each page vibrates with a liveliness that is both physical and mental; the book sparkles with wit and variety. The Cruelest Month is an unforgettable literary experience. Read it for yourself and see.

"April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain." --- T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land The Waste Land is a long poem by T. S. Eliot. It is widely regarded as one of the most important poems of the 20th century and a central text in Modernist poetry. Published in 1922, the 434-line poem first appeared in the United Kingdom in the October issue of The Criterion and in the United States in the November issue of The Dial. It was published in book form in December 1922. Among its famous phrases are "April is the cruellest month", "I will show you fear in a handful of dust", and the mantra in the Sanskrit language "Shantih shantih shantih". Eliot's poem loosely follows the legend of the Holy Grail and the Fisher King combined with vignettes of contemporary British society. Eliot employs many literary and cultural allusions from the Western canon, Buddhism and the Hindu Upanishads. Because of this, critics and scholars regard the poem as obscure. The poem shifts between voices of satire and prophecy featuring abrupt and unannounced changes of speaker, location, and time and conjuring of a vast and dissonant range of cultures and literatures. The poem's structure is divided into five sections. The first section, The Burial of the Dead, introduces the diverse themes of disillusionment and despair. The second, A Game of Chess, employs vignettes of several characters---alternating narrations---that address those themes experientially. The Fire Sermon, the third section, offers a philosophical meditation in relation to the imagery of death and views of self-denial in juxtaposition influenced by Augustine of Hippo and eastern religions. After a fourth section that includes a brief lyrical petition, the culminating fifth section, What the Thunder Said, concludes with an image of judgment.

The proceeds from this Creative Cafe Cabal Anthology novel The Cruelest Month all go to benefit American Cancer Society. Thank you for looking and we hope you pick this novel up and enjoy the stories, and the cruelty within. The mystery story "Clerical Error" by Tom Fowler leads off the anthology. It features private investigator C.T. Ferguson, who investigates the violent murder of a young secretary at the behest of her older sister. Batting second is Nyckei Harris, with "Endless Summer," a look at a gritty, parched, and (of course) cruel post-apocalyptic future. Next, you'll read "Careful Wishing" by Victoria Durm, which takes the old maxim of "be careful what you wish for because you just might get it" and applies it to a pair of desperate children in an orphanage. Amanda Alamain's "A Month Without That Dick" is next. It's a very real look at the subtle and not-so-subtle ways people are cruel to each other in relationships. Last, but certainly not least, Nick Davis gives us "Exposition," a look at the zany and cruel ways writer's block can manifest when a deadline looms (and passes). While we examined cruelty in our stories, we decided to stop there. The proceeds from the anthology you're reading are going to the author's favorite charity. Right now, we're a group of writers who all want to make it big. We're going to keep doing these anthologies, regardless of how big any of us get, and they'll always be for the benefit of a charity (or charities). Enjoy the stories, revel in the cruelty therein, and know your purchase is benefiting a deserving charity somewhere. Thank you for buying our first anthology. We hope it doesn't scare you off from buying our future releases. The members of the Creative Café Cabal: Amanda Alamain, Nick Davis, Victoria Durm, Tom Fowler, and Nyckei Harris.
