News: Forthcoming in 2007

July 25, 2006

I have officially switched publishers and will be publishing my next book in the spring of 2007 with Nightwood Editions instead of McClelland & Stewart. The book is comprised of a sequence of sonnets in the style of what was included in the chapbook A Set of Deadly Negotiations and is currently titled All the Standard Candles.

I’ve been a fan of Nightwood for some time, so it’s with pleasure that I make the switch. I may perhaps publish with M&S again in the future, but I think this book is particularly suited to Nightwood.


Review: A Set of Deadly Negotiations

July 15, 2006

The beautiful litte chapbook I did with Frog Hollow Press was just reviewed in “Canada’s National Poetry Magazine” Arc by poet and critic Amanda Jernigan.

Read the review here.

As I mentioned previously, there was also a brief review in Books in Canada, and I have now found a link to it on the Books in Canada website.

Read the review here.

Not bad for an artisan chapbook with fourteen poems. One more would be a nice hat trick. I credit all the success to the design and editing.


News: Now Based in St. John’s

July 8, 2006

As of July 1, 2006, I am now based in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Please contact me directly by email to get my new mailing address.

The city is quite vibrant and friendly and I already feel at home in our new house. Not getting much other than housework done, but it’s a nice change of pace. The air is fresh and the traffic manageable. How did I stay so long in Toronto?
