It is the year 1262. After saving Ciri from the Brokilon dryads, Geralt ventures north. At the same time a war breaks out with Nilfgaard, a war that would end with the battle of Sodden Hill, which would supposedly claim the life of Yennefer of Vengerberg. The realms of the extreme North remained neutral, and the land is relatively peaceful. The Principality of Malleore, where this story is set, lies on the banks of the Braa river in the foothills of the Dragon Mountains. The small, heavily fortified castle of House Creigiau is located on the bank of the Crea, one of the Braa’s inlets. The mountainous region was ideal for shepherding, so the Barons of Creigiau spent centuries trading in wool. However, around 1251, the castellan Lazare convinced his Baron to switch to logging instead. This industry fuels the busy shipyards of neighboring Kovir. Esterad Thyssen, the king of Kovir, and his wife Zuleyka are the followers of the “Good Book” and its author, the prophet Lebioda. It is likely that trade relations with Kovir brought the cult to Creigiau. As it is often the case, the peasants did not abandon their worship of older, pagan deities, like the locally revered leshy.
When Karl Wilson lost his job and had trouble finding a new one he became a broken man. With his wife Jill having to become the "breadwinner" and his already shaky marriage crumbling more by the day Karl sank into a deep funk. When his wife discovered an old spell that supposedly caused people to switch their gender she thought that she would teach her despondent spouse a on by the humiliating process of forcing him to become a woman temporarily. Hopefully the shock and indignity would shame him into getting back on his feet and restoring his manhood. Of course when someone with no experience dabbles in things like magic there are bound to be unforeseen results.
When somewhat surprisingly the spell actually worked and Karl was turned into Karla, a ravishingly beautiful woman with extraordinary sex appeal, it was Jill who found herself being taught more than a few ons. "The New Roommate" is a witty and sexy look at gender roles and how much they're often taken for granted until something causes the lines to blur. It's also an unorthodox romantic tale of a couple trying to save their marriage in the most unusual way possible. The story contains explicit adult language and situations.

Les Québécois connaissent le climat le plus turbulent au monde.
Habitués aux extrêmes et aux tempêtes, le réchauffement de la planète ne leur fait pas peur. Pourtant, les phénomènes météorologiques violents, les sécheresses et les inondations s'apprêtent à déferler partout dans le monde, nous dit-on. Le ciel va-t-il nous tomber sur la tête? Quelle est la vérité derrière les discours alarmistes sur le climat? Qui dit vrai sur le changement climatique? Les experts? Les militants? Les sceptiques? Les solutions proposées pour réduire l'impact de l'activité humaine sur le réchauffement sont-elles viables? Qu'est-ce qu'on ne nous dit pas sur les véhicules électriques, l'éolien, le solaire? Dans un langage simple, le météorologue Gilles Brien répond à ces questions en dressant un bilan des dernières recherches. Il jette sur la question climatique l'éclairage dont nous avons besoin pour démêler le vrai du faux et pour aborder l'avenir avec lucidité.
