I like having the Christmas catalog whether using as bag stuffer, distributing to area offices, etc. We get quite a few orders from it but most of all it offers a way for more folks to hear about us with the imprint. -- Myra Meade, Hall Book Exchange, Gainesville, GA

The Lord of OpiumThe Lord of Opium
The Lord of Opium is the sequel to the modern classic House of the Scorpion, which won the National Book Award, as well as a Newbery Honor and a Printz Honor. The story follows the life of Matt, a clone of the Lord El Patrón. The lord is the only person who doesn’t treat Matt like a monster, but that’s only because the Lord loves himself above everything else and is a terrible, evil ruler. The first book is full of thrills and controversy as Matt has to try and escape the evil grips of his clone master while in The Lord of Opium, Matt finds himself suddenly in the position of ruling over his own country. This book is truly special.
