Short fiction joy, news, and reviews.

the-stamp-collectorWe received the most enormous pile of packages on Tuesday, including a magazine each for Harriet and I. Mine was Canadian Notes and Queries, featuring a new short story by Caroline Adderson, and Harriet’s was Chirp, with a fabulous short story by Sara O’Leary (!!), and I loved that both of us were experiencing the joy and goodness of short fiction in fine Canadian magazines, and that Harriet gets to appreciate this fine thing from the age of 3. What a lucky girl.

In other news, I was quoted in this excellent piece by Anne Chudobiak in the Montreal Gazette about the CWILA count and lack of female reviewers in Canadian journals and newspapers. And my review of The Stamp Collector by Jennifer Lanthier and Francois Thisdale is now up at Quill & Quire.

    I think Moira received her copy of Chirp on Tuesday too! That kid has a sixth sense for when the magazine is due – or maybe she is just stalking the mail lady. :)

    Thanks for the shout out, Kerry. Lucky Harriet to grow up in a house where stories are so valued.
