Guernica Editions invites you to celebrate the holidays this year by giving the gift of literature. With over 900 authors, Guernica is a diverse publisher of some of Canada’s finest poetry, fiction and literary criticism. We invite you to browse our selection of titles at your local bookseller, or online through Amazon or Chapters Indigo. We’re confident that you’ll agree there’s a Guernica book for every reader on your list!

Guernica’s literary gift idea of the day is Timothy Quinn’s Octopus Intelligence, an extraordinary novel of paranoia, politics, scientific rivalry, pain management and postmodern theatre. Set in New York, Tehran, Port au Prince and Tegucigalpa, Octopus Intelligence tells the story of two desperate men. One, a former intelligence contractor suffering from a mysterious ailment, has returned home to find an oblique message spelled out on his bedroom floor. Another, a self-medicating paleontologist, has just discovered a four hundred million year old transitional cephalopod in the Moroccan desert.
