Mitchell Toews has placed new short stories in Canada-based Blank Spaces and Pulp Literature, and U.S.-based RiverBabble. Meanwhile, U.K.-based Fiction on the Web has chosen Mitchell’s story “Nothing to Lose” for its first ever print anthology.

Phyllis Humby has just posted a Q & A on her blog about fellow CL contributor and anthology collaborator Michael Joll.

Gary Beck‘s new poetry book evokes concern about disruptions to the desire for a comfortable, prosperous, untroubled life. Perturbations leads us through all its gloriously chaotic uncertainties. Available in paperback with a retail price of US$11.99 and also in a Kindle version. Published through Winter Goose Publishing. Available now through all major retailers.

Phyllis Humby, Frank T. Sikora, Michael Joll and Nancy Kay Clark are among those collaborating in the upcoming publication of a new short story anthology called Our Plan to Save the World. Read about the anthology on Phyllis’ blog.

Sharon Frayne has recently published a collection of stories, entitled Caught Between the Lines  (ByGones Publishing). It is Sharon’s personal CANADA 150 project (2017 is the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation), and is the result of about three years of research and writing. Between the pages are 10 illustrated stories set in the confines of the Old Niagara Courthouse and Gaol that existed in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, between 1815 and 1920.  Sharon discovered haunting tales of Indigenous people, political rebels, run-away slaves, orphan girls and soldiers who all were confined in this historic and vanished building.

    “Read and vote for Mitchell’s story here.” Thx NKC! I died on Deathmatch. A noble death, but still – I’m out. Kinda like Francis Macomber, it felt good to take myself out of my comfort zone and write in a different style. Also, meeting my alter-ego, “Arlo” was interesting! He may return, to speak his foul-mouthed truth. Cheers – m
