it is officially summer. i am done my essays, marking, etc..... it was a hell of a lot of work but i am so glad i went full throttle and got ALL of my course work done.... no more courses for this kid, ever. unless i'm being paid to teach them. not that i mind the courses, just the course work... and the "not being paid."

so now i'm in saskatchewan visiting with mandy, will be visiting here until the end of may, then presenting a paper at a conference in toronto, then back in calgary for june. most of june, anyway. while i'm here i'm going to enjoy the sun and hanging out with mandy and will get some writing and studying done... got to get working towards those comprehensive exams... also got some book reviews to write and some other stuff.... after a week's break i'll be back to work on Kanada. i'll be finishing a draft of that manuscript up this summer, and hopefully finishing up some screenplays too.

Matrix magazine wants to publish a short story i wrote in their upcoming "Fan Friction" issue, it's a comedy set in Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.... so get your Matrix subscription now.

i was roaming around looking for something else and i ran across an interview i did a few years ago when i was still in the band PROST. it's kind of amusing, here it is for your enjoyment.

also, a really funny interview i did with the band The Velvet Pill, also for the 'Toban.

The Logogryph

My favourite book of 2005 was nominated for a HUGE literary award, the $140,000 Impac Dublin Literary Award. It's on the shortlist -- no small feat -- the award being an international one. Here's hoping. I don't really know Mr. Wharton but I'd still be thrilled to see this book do well. You should buy it. Right now.
