I’ve been quiet the past few weeks on my blog, mainly because I’ve been working on fiction and listening to the new Kathleen Edwards cd (a gift from my lovely daughter Kate), as well as trying to produce chapbooks through my above/ground press, trying to ease the backlog (some of these titles have been three years slated). Here is a list of various titles I have produced over the past few months, and very soon, hopefully, will be other titles by Karen Clavelle (Winnipeg MB), Douglas Barbour (Edmonton AB), Jan Allen (Kingston ON), Michael Holmes (Toronto ON), Cath Morris (Vancouver BC) and Natalie Simpson (Vancouver BC, formerly Calgary AB).
