Box set featuring nine action movies. In 'Skinheads' (1989) a group of Los Angeles neo-nazis are forced to move to North California when one of them shoots a black man. When they arrive in the small town they continue on their path of hatred, harrassment and destruction until they come across two resilient college kids determined to stop the skinheads' reign of violence. When a Hollywood film crew travel to shoot on an isolated desert location they are attacked by CIA-backed mercenaries. At first the film people fight back using their special effects equipment, but as the carnage mounts they sustain heavy losses, and soon the director's daughter is the only one still alive. She then teams up with one of the embittered mercenaries to better her chances of surviving. 'Hiroshima' (1990) paints a dramatic account of the race to develop the atomic bomb, the ethics and politics behind it, and the events which led to its use at the end of World War 2. In 'Emperor' (1988), Tony (Alex D'Andrea) is a Bronx street hustler, an old-fashioned, low-level operator who finds himself forced off his turf by vicious crime boss Falco (Anthony Gioia). Teaming up with an ex-con and sultry songstress, he learns a few things about the way of the world and makes an attempt to get back on the right side of the wrong side of the tracks - taking the fight back to Falco. In 'South Bronx' (1985), two young children are being brutally exploited as their foster home moonlights as the headquarters for one of the city's largest pornography rings. Amazingly, the two children escape to the streets, where they enlist the help of an undercover cop (Mario Van Peebles) and his partner to capture the porn king and his accomplices. In 'The Swap' (1969) Robert DeNiro plays Sammy Nicoletti, an adult film director who is murdered. His brother Vito (Anthony Charnota) vows to find the killer and avenge Sammy's death. When Vito is released from prison he begins his own investigation, encountering deceit and blackmail. The final days of Sammy's life unfold from a party on Long Island back to the big city. As Vito draws nearer to the truth, his own life hangs precariously in the balance. In 'Death Collector' (1975) it's 'all in the family' for a young, streetwise hood as he becomes a collector for the mob. He quickly rises, run by rung, up the ladder of the underworld in this violent crime saga. Blaxploitation legend Fred 'The Hammer' Williamson stars in 'Black Cobra' (1987). When fashion photographer Elys Trumbo (Eva Grimaldi) sees one of her neighbours being murdered by a member of the Black Cobras, a psychopathic motorcycle gang, she manages to catch the killer's face on film. The Cobras' leader comes after her, but luckily tough police sergeant Malone (Williamson) has been appointed to protect her. In 'Born To Win' (1971), George Segal stars as as an ex-hairdresser who struggles to support his expensive drug habit and to avoid arrest, turns 'narc', informing on his fellow junkies. Eventually Segal's sense of self-hatred threatens to overwhelm him. In 'Revenge' (1988), the gun-crazy right-wing terrorist group 'Strike Force' have set their sights on the deadly NK-2, which is a very large weapon indeed, and will do everything in their power to get hold of it. Vietnam vet Jason Shepherd (Roger Rodd) is approached with the job of tracking down these vicious killers and preventing them from doing any more damage. He accepts the job, but when the group gun down two of his most loyal friends, it suddenly becomes personal.

Award-winning Nisga'a poet Jordan Abel's third collection, Injun, is a long poem about racism and the representation of Indigenous peoples. Composed of text found in western novels published between 1840 and 1950 the heyday of pulp publishing and a period of unfettered colonialism in North America Injun then uses erasure, pastiche, and a focused poetics to create a visually striking response to the western genre.After compiling the online text of 91 of these now public-domain novels into one gargantuan document, Abel used his word processor's Find" function to search for the word injun." The 509 results were used as a study in context: How was this word deployed? What surrounded it? What was left over once that word was removed? Abel then cut up the sentences into clusters of three to five words and rearranged them into the long poem that is Injun. The book contains the poem as well as peripheral material that will help the reader to replicate, intuitively, some of the conceptual processes that went into composing the poem.Though it has been phased out of use in our post-racial" society, the word injun" is peppered throughout pulp western novels. Injun retraces, defaces, and effaces the use of this word as a colonial and racial marker. While the subject matter of the source text is clearly problematic, the textual explorations in Injun help to destabilize the colonial image of the Indian" in the source novels, the western genre as a whole, and the western canon.

"The Place of Scraps" explores the relationship between First Nations cultures and ethnography. Marius Barbeau--an early-twentieth-century ethnographer who studied First Nations cultures, including Jordan Abel's ancestral Nisga'a Nation--believed that these ancient cultural practices were about to disappear completely. Through poetic erasure techniques, Abel carves out new and unexpected understandings of Barbeau's writing.

Jordan Abel is a First Nations writer who lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. He holds a BA from the University of Alberta and a MFA from the University of British Columbia. Abel is an editor for "Poetry Is Dead" magazine and the former poetry editor for "PRISM International."
