New Star Books, 277 pages. Luanne Armstrong Luanne Armstrong lives and writes from the interior of British Columbia. She teaches Creative Writing at the College of the Rockies. She also farms, rides horses, and walks through mountains. This image embodies Luanne Armstrong's dystopic future BC, where a few wealthy families live in luxury while the majority struggle for survival. Hospitals, schools, and even the police have been privatized, and the corporations running them have downgraded services, cutting off small communities and the poor.

At a time when SARS and West Nile nudge one another for space in Canada's dailies, Luanne Armstrong's The Bone House offers scant comfort to worried eyes. She sets her novel in a near-future British Columbia that could be a mere turn-of-the-page into an all too real tomorrow. Obstacles ugly enough to rival Dante's Inferno litter the path and almost lead to humanity's obliteration.

A young woman, Lia, escapes a Vancouver that has deteriorated into a landscape of gated communities, violent gangs, squalid squats, and sinister welfare agencies. She returns to her childhood home in the Kootenays and a commune where Magnus and his mother Ama and their eccentric neighbour, Matt, are determined not only to fight for their land but to understand the events that have shaped their lives.
