A Story of Bookies, Toronto the Good, the Mob and My Dad
Author: Bob Bossin
Publisher: The Porcupine's Quill
Category: Biography & Autobiography
In the first half of the 20th century, Toronto prided itself on being ‘Toronto the Good’. But Davy the Punk’s Toronto was tantalizingly bad. In the 1930s Davy Bossin was known in the gambling underworld as ‘Davy the Punk’. He was the city’s top layoff man, the ‘bookies’ bookie’ who connected Toronto to the continental betting racket. Later he ran the Toronto terminus of the notorious race wire, the underground information network essential to the gambling industry. By the 1940s, that put Davy in the crosshairs of the law’s efforts to quash organized crime. To see Davy Bossin, you would never have guessed it. Outwardly, he was so taciturn that some thought him mute. (‘What you don’t say can’t be used against you,’ he taught his son.) But at the right time, among ‘right’ guys, Davy was a consummate storyteller, regaling his pals with outrageous tales of horse-race gambling, the mob and the underside of show biz. Eagerly taking it all in was his son, Bobby, who would grow up to be Canadian indie music pioneer Bob Bossin, a revered storyteller in his own right. Now 70 years after his father’s precedent-setting legal battle, Bob tells the story of Davy the Punk. By turns funny, maddening, insightful and moving, it is both a memoir of father and son and an eye-opening reconsideration of law-breakers and lawmen, of the Great Migration, and of the distressingly anti-Semitic Canada left out of the history books.

Maybe he expected too much out of his school administrators. Maybe he expected them to be professionals and honor the school policy and state education law. Maybe he believed them when they said that what happened in the office would stay in that office. Maybe a seventeen year old who has made a mistake should be treated like one. Or maybe that is just too much to ask for. Daniel Liu is a seventeen year old high school student who got caught in an attempt by the school to suspend him. To him it seemed like the administrators were trying whatever they could to prove him guilty and he had to do whatever he could to prove himself innocent.

Born into an ordinary working class family, William James Little would have expected to live an ordinary life. A childhood accident left him unable to join in the usual outdoor sporting activities, but a couple of chance encounters, in his mid-teens, introduced him to the pleasures of indoor activities, with many willing companions, earning him the added title of “Lucky”. In a five year period from the age of eighteen he lost, through accident or fatal illness, all the members of his family and, most tragic of all, the only girl he ever loved. Although he gained an accountancy qualification he was content to meander through the rest of his life. A casual invitation to a dinner changed that. At the age of thirty eight he was forced into an unwanted marriage, to a girl half his age, part of a family whose business associates were involved with criminal activities. Within two years a number of deaths had occurred and his life, or freedom, was in danger from those associates and as the main suspect of the police. He needed to strike out and away from both organisations but, due to his consideration for the welfare of his wife's young housemaid, who he treated as a daughter, he delayed his departure. With help from unexpected quarters, he managed to escape half way round the world. Following an unexpected meeting he faced his ultimate destiny.

The Search for a World Beyond the Senses
Author: Victor J. Stenger
Category: Body, Mind & Spirit
This book critically examines theories of a transcendent reality in terms of all that is currently known about matter at its most fundamental level. Victor J. Stenger gives a provocative, often amusing history of psychic research and occult beliefs, offering a convincing rebuttal to those who attempt to link physics to mystical truths. Stenger examines a number of well-known paranormal claims and shows how they can be explained without resorting to supernatural or psychic hypotheses. Discussing quantum theory and relativity, he demonstrates that these concepts actually invalidate paranormal claims and that there is no scientific basis for a universe other than one composed of observable matter. The human species has always lived under the assumption that supernatural forces determine destiny. Can our lives retain meaning when this assumption seems unfounded?
