News: Quick

August 8, 2016

Coming next spring from ECW Press: QUICK, new aphorisms. The image here shows the title in a different colour from the background, but only for online image purposes. On the printed book the title will be the same colour as the cover background and will be embossed instead. So on first glance, you’ll see only “APHORISMS   GEORGE MURRAY” and then picking it up will reveal the title. Neat!

Publication: Lemon Hound

May 8, 2015

A few of the poems from my upcoming book Diversion make a rare appearance at Lemon Hound. Sadly, Lemon Hound will be closing shortly, so I’m glad to have squeaked back in there. It was a hub for genuine and passionate discussion and publication of poetry and literature. One of the great sites of the country, for people who love words. It’ll be missed.

Publication: New Cover

February 4, 2015

I haven’t been keeping very good care of this site! Too many other projects on the go and not enough exciting news. A few readings and publications here and there, but I’ve mostly been concentrating on my wife Elisabeth de Mariaffi‘s new novel, The Devil You Know. Check that out. I’m always at her to update her site, so here I am taking my own advice.

Today, I received the cover art for my new book coming in the Fall, so I thought I would post! David Gee has done it again. This is the third cover he’s done for me and my third book with ECW. I love it. What amazes me is that for all three, Glimpse, Whiteout, and Diversion, he got it exactly right the first time.

If you want to read one of the poems from it, check out this page at Hazlitt.

Publication: Lemon Hound

March 1, 2014

Three new poems excerpted from a series I’m working on for publication in the fall of 2015 (with ECW again) are up at Lemon Hound. Pleased because  I feel LH is one of the most significant venues for poetry and poetry criticism in North America, so it’s nice to be up there with all the cool kids.

News: Wow Wow and Haw Haw Previewed at Quill

January 24, 2014

My first book for children, Wow Wow and Haw Haw, gets a nice mention in the spring preview at the Canadian industry paper Quill & Quire. Following a previous mention in Publisher’s Weekly, I hope this means all the librarians now know it’s going to be a thing this spring!
