August 2011 Hermenootyk Society has published their third anthology, Hermenootyk3 (ISBN 978-0-9866814-0-1), edited by Joel Katelnikoff, Eleni Loutas, and Mark Woytiuk. In November 2010 the HerMen reading series held a Manifesto Night, and the manifesto I wrote for that evening is included in this volume. Four of my MacEwan students were there that evening to enjoy the literary fun.
The hand-made limited edition book – with an embossed cover produced at SNAP – includes work by Doug Barbour, Natalie Helberg, Marco Melfi, Nicole Pakan, Cole Pettifor, Patrick Pilarski, Maddie Reddon, Glenn Robson, Gregory Samsung, and Adam Wilson.
Also in August 2011 is the long-awaited publication of Slice Me Some Truth, an anthology of the best in current Canadian creative non-fiction. Edited by Luanne Armstrong and Zoe Landale and published by Wolsak & Wynn, the authors represented include Sharon Butala, Silver Donald Cameron, Lorna Crozier, Wayne Grady, Steven Heighton, Matt Hughes, Myrna Kostash, Evenlyn Lau, Stephen Osborne, Harold Rhenisch, J. Jill Robinson, Andreas Schroeder and many others. My contribution to the book is Singapore 1995, which I think of as a reflection on the political, social and economic complexities of an unexpected intimate relationship.
My short story, Driving Day, will be published by Nemesis Publishing in the UK as part of their forthcoming Words On Fire anthology of contemporary international fiction. Driving Day was also dramatized and presented as a staged reading at the 2010 International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts in Orlando, Florida.
