If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.

ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
In Thought Crimes, Tim Richards takes the reader on a mind-bending, mischievous ride through a world where nothing is quite as it seems. The lives these stories describe are almost ordinary... but dark quirks lurk beneath the surface. Strange things happen: A junior teacher takes a job at an unusual high school, where students take 'self-expression' to odd and disturbing lengths. In a trendy inner suburb, suspiciously perfect babies start appearing on young couples' doorsteps. At a resort catering for Australian golfers, the Japanese staff take rigorous night classes in how to be more Aussie than their guests. Richards' black humour recalls Roald Dahl's wickedly entertaining tales for grown-ups, peeking behind the everyday appearance of things to explore unspoken fears and desires. Wry, unpredictable and sometimes shocking, they will take you where you least expect to go.
