The 2018 edition of Best Canadian Stories is well under way. And though I must confess I have not had a chance to read it yet, I am really looking forward to this one. Russell Smith’s selection has me quite intrigued with stories from a number of authors I admire including Lynn Coady, Kathy Page, Bill Gaston, and Liz Harmer (whose excellent debut novel The Amateurs I recently finished reading); and some authors whose work I am really looking forward to checking out: Tom Thor Buchanan, Michael LaPointe, and Stephen Marche.
While I was away for a week in the sun in Oscoda, Michigan, a couple new books arrived at Biblioasis. And on my return a couple more did as well.
It also looks like I was replaced by a new production manager in my absence. Hope the new guy is up to the challenge.
