New cover art by Katie Green for Bad Endings (That’s a link to Chapters, but I highly recommend pre-ordering through your friendly neighbourhood bookseller), my short story collection. Katie is so talented, and she was one of my co-travellers on the Peel Watershed trip! I’m lucky to know her, and so happy that she agreed to do the art for my first book. Forthcoming, March 2017.
I talked to Wayde about his recent trip to Cuba for the Havana Book Festival, and about Hogan’s Alley, Josh Kioke interviews Eden Robinson and her infectious laugh, and Mario Parent talks to Mob Bounce on Unceded Airwaves,
Thanks to Madeline for the great chat, and a chance to read Exotica, one of the weirder stories from Bad Endings, on International Women’s Day on March 8th.CiTR and Discorder Mag doing their Fundrive right now, March 9-17. Just saying.
