"Words of the Inuit" is an important compendium of Inuit culture illustrated through Inuit words. It brings the sum of the author’s decades of experience and engagement with Inuit and Inuktitut to bear on what he fashions as an amiable, leisurely stroll through words and meanings. Inuit words are often more complex than English words and frequently contain small units of meaning that add up to convey a larger sensibility. Dorais’ lexical and semantic analyses and reconstructions are not overly technical, yet they reliably evince connections and underlying significations that allow for an in-depth reflection on the richness of Inuit linguistic and cultural heritage and identity. An appendix on the polysynthetic character of Inuit languages includes more detailed grammatical description of interest to more specialist readers. Organized thematically, the book tours the histories and meanings of the words to illuminate numerous aspects of Inuit culture, including environment and the land; animals and subsistence activities; humans and spirits; family, kinship, and naming; the human body; and socializing with other people in the contemporary world. It concludes with a reflection on the usefulness for modern Inuit—especially youth and others looking to strengthen their cultural identity —to know about the underlying meanings embedded in their language and culture. With recent reports alerting us to the declining use of the Inuit language in the North, "Words of the Inuit" is a timely contribution to understanding one of the world’s most resilient Indigenous languages.

Dr. Victor Frank is a brilliant neurosurgeon who has developed an incredible new plastic substance that is stronger than bone and is bulletproof. He wants to build a man using bionics and his plastic that will advance the medical world. However, what is meant for noble purposes takes an unexpected turn. The college grant committee refuses him the funds he is counting on, and he becomes hell-bent on revenge. Victor is the great-great-grandson of the original Dr. Frankenstein. Victor discovers his grandfather’s journal for reanimating life. He tries to maintain order, even with his fiancée, but the accidents cause a lust for revenge. This noble cause becomes a tale of horror and vengeance. A monster like never before is loose, and no one is safe, not even the good doctor. Murder and fright have a heyday. The tale is horrific; the consequences are unbelievable.
