Autumn 2018: Quarterly Short Stories

2018-09-20T11:13:05+00:00

Groff, Huebert, Moore, Smith and Thien Short Stories in July, August and September Whether in a dedicated collection or a magazine, these stories capture a variety of reading moods. Over the summer, I've chatted about some of these at length. In particular, Madeleine Thien's

David Huebert’s Peninsula Sinking (2017)

2018-09-19T16:32:36+00:00

Although I am always interested in the short fiction which Biblioasis publishes (thanks to the likes of K.D. Miller and Kathy Page), it was Naomi’s review of this collection which urged me to fetch a copy of this from the Yorkville library downtown. This is not my usual branch,

It’s easy to imagine why the author would have wanted to revisit the Whiteoaks before the events of Master of Jalna play out, to

Lisa Moore’s Something for Everyone (2018)

2018-10-17T12:33:54+00:00

One remarkable feature of Lisa Moore’s short story writing is her versatility. Sometimes her vocabulary is elevated (consider: koan, ferric, sculpin, recalcitrant, scabrous, and histrionic). Sometimes her subject matter is banal. With characters chewing their fish and chips on Signal Hill with their mouths full. (“Skywalk”, the final work
