I've been under a rock. At first by force and then by habit. Weeks after being buried by the flu, I'm still trying to get back into the productive mode I'd been churning on until mid February. Excuses and apologies: I'm a wuss.
With more on the horizon, I thought I'd share the latest "Recent Reads" I've written about over at Ottawa Poetry Newsletter: great new work by Vancouver's Jordan Abel and Ottawa's Abby Paige. The latter, a fantasy memoir of Samuel Champlain returning to modern-day Quebec, is a wonderful distraction from cabin-fever, for those of you still winter-sick or otherwise trying patience. C'mon Spring.
