Audio: The Once

November 15, 2011

Here’s a bit I did on CBC with The Once, the Newfoundland folk band that turned a poem from my upcoming book, Whiteout, into an incredible song. The interview ran on (Canadian) Thanksgiving Day, and contains two fulls songs from their album, including the one I had a hand in, “Song for Memory”. Hope you like it!




News: Whiteout now available for pre-order

November 13, 2011

Whiteout, poems by George MurrayMy upcoming book for spring 2012, Whiteout, is now available for (WAY in advance) pre-order at a variety of e-retailers. I sometimes like to order books ahead of time, then forget that I ordered them, and then find myself pleasantly surprised when they arrive, apparently unbidden!

I link to the amazons over in the side bar to the right, but mostly because it’s just easy and many readers already have accounts there, making ordering a cinch. But like many authors, I feel a certain solidarity with small booksellers, and I’d prefer that you buy my books somewhere local and independent, if you can. If not, you can always order straight from my publishers (ECW for this book and Glimpse, but Nightwood and M&S/Random House before that).  So, please find below a bunch of options for ordering online:


McNally Robinson (most recommended)
Chapters/Indigo (least recommended)


Powell’s (most recommended)
