Looking ahead… In 2009, Orca Book Publishers celebrated twenty-five years of publishing. After a party and a bit of reflection, we now turn our attention to the future. This is a time of great change in the publishing industry, and we are optimistic about the challenges ahead. At Orca Book Publishers we are always looking for novel ways to promote literacy and innovative ways to share the stories we publish. As we head into 2010, we are engaged in several exciting initiatives, including:

Our new series, Rapid Reads, under our new imprint, Raven Books—short, “easy-read” books for adult readers. In our increasingly fast-paced world we believe there is a market for well-written, well-told novels that can be read in one sitting. Raven Books will also appeal to those struggling with literacy challenges. The Rapid Reads series will feature titles from some of Canada’s best authors—great writing, great storytelling in a small package. See pages 26 and 27.

EBooks—In the past year we have been digitizing content and making it available for purchase in a number of venues. While the physical book is more popular than ever, there are a growing number of avenues and opportunities to make digital content available, and we intend to pursue them whenever and wherever we can. In the near future we expect to make eBooks available on our website and to explore other innovative ways of distributing content.

Classroom Collections—We have introduced new display packaging for our bestselling series fiction: Orca Soundings, Orca Currents, Orca Sports and Orca Echoes. The sturdy and attractive displays make these popular series easier than ever to use and organize in the classroom setting. The package also includes a professionally written resource guide for each series.

In spite of all the changes occurring throughout our industry, there is also much that stays the same. Most importantly, we remain firmly committed to the belief that “good stories well told” is the secret to success. And that reaching readers is a noble calling. Here’s to the next twenty-five years!

New Juvenile Nonfiction

Great bears need a great rainforest to survive.

The Salmon Bears

Giants of the Great Bear Rainforest Ian McAllister and Nicholas Read • Photographs by Ian McAllister April 2010 9781554692057 $18.95 paperback with flaps full-colour photos 7.5 x 9 96 pages ages 8+

E

xtensively illustrated with Ian McAllister’s magnificent photographs, The Salmon Bears explores the delicate balance that exists between the grizzly, black and spirit bears that inhabit the last great wilderness along the central coast of British Columbia and their natural environment. Key to this relationship are the salmon that are born in the rivers each spring, who then go out to sea as juveniles and return as adults to spawn and die, completing a cycle of life that ensures the survival of not only their own species but also virtually every other plant and animal in the rainforest. In clear language suitable for young readers, the authors describe the day-to-day activities that define the lives of these bears through the four seasons. But this is also very much the story of the Great Bear Rainforest—a vast tract of land that stretches from the northern tip of Vancouver Island to the Alaska border and contains some of the largest stands of old-growth forest left on the West Coast. The Salmon Bears focuses on the interconnectedness of all life in the rainforest and makes a strong case for the importance of protecting this vital ecological resource. Ian McAllister, a founding director of both the Raincoast Conservation Society and Pacific Wild, is an award-winning photographer and filmmaker. He has spent more than twenty years working to preserve the West Coast’s temperate rainforest. Ian lives with his family on an island in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest. Nicholas Read, a lifelong lover of animals, works as a journalism instructor at Langara College in Vancouver, British Columbia. He has written on animal issues for the Vancouver Sun, The Globe and Mail, the Toronto Sun and other publications. Themes: ecology, the environment, natural history, the cycle of life

But the weathered barracks of Lager Lichtenstein are the only home she knows, and they are filled with family and friends she doesn’t want to leave behind. As she says her goodbyes, Theresa’s friend Martin gives her two gifts: a package of postcards and a stone he calls the gnome’s eye, which he says will “protect her from all things evil, living or dead.” Theresa is convinced the stone has no power, but she still keeps it close as they travel on the crowded immigrant ship and when they settle into a rooming house on Kensington Avenue in Toronto. At first Theresa is afraid of everything: the other tenants in the rooming house, the rat that lives in the kitchen, learning a new language.

fter losing yet another tae kwon do tournament, Jinho gives in to his anger and breaks his opponent’s fingers. While this gets him barred from competing at his dojang, it also gets him scouted by Austin, a trainer for an underground mixed martial arts club. At first the prospect of fighting without boundaries appeals to Jinho, but the more involved he gets, the more disturbing he finds it and the harder it is to find a way out. Unlike legal MMA, which has rules and regulations, underground MMA is a free-for-all: there are no weight classes and no referees to stop the fight should it go too far. When Jinho is set up to fight a boy known as The Ripper, he realizes that he doesn’t belong in this world, but the only thing that can save him is the ancient code of tae kwon do.

I

Warden of Greyrock

9781554690053 $9.95 pb

n Book Four of the popular Warlocks of Talverdin series, the struggle passes on to the next generation. Betrayed by a member of his own family, abducted, poisoned and forced to recreate an ancient spell that might—if it doesn’t kill him—open the lost shadow road, Nethin, son of a Nightwalker lord and a human witch, is thrown into a struggle for survival in a dying land. In that land, he meets Alabeth, an orphan who is willing to trust him, but her people have rejected her. Capture means execution for both, but an even deadlier foe plans vengeance against Nethin, and the life of every Nightwalker rests on what Nethin does next. “If one book has shaped what I think a book should do and what literature should be,” K.V. Johansen says, “it is Lord of the Rings.” As Tolkien was, she is thorough in her research as she creates other worlds for her stories. Johansen, who has a master’s degree in medieval studies, lives in a bit of another world herself; she grows exotic trees indoors and seedling oaks and apples outdoors in what used to be the vegetable garden, and hopes some day to have her very own forest, because both the house and the yard are getting rather crowded. She lives in Sackville, New Brunswick.

Praise for Orca Book Publishers “The goal of [Orca books] is to encourage frustrated middlers and teens to read, and from my perspective, it is working. Teachers love the books as well, but the students will prove their value through a rapidly growing number of circulations...Any librarian who sees the light in a student’s eye when she says she read her Orca book in one day cannot resist immediately calling his or her favorite vendor and making sure that, in September, there are plenty of Orca books on the shelf.” —Bruce Duboff, librarian in Pennsauken, NJ, on the Middler Books and More blog
