About this author

A writer whose fiction has been published in five anthologies, including Random House’s Victory Meat, New Fiction from Atlantic Canada and Vagrant Press’s The Vagrant Revue of New Fiction, and in more than a dozen literary journals across Canada and the US. First novel, S. a novel in [xxx] dreams, was published in 2008 by Broken Jaw Press. Also records music under the name Pipher.

(A bit more? I was late to reading fiction, in my mid-twenties, and fell in love with hard Sci Fi - Niven & Pournelle, Poul Anderson, Greg Bear, Asimov, many others. I loved the concepts but not the prose and soon I was wandering to Vonnegut and James Morrow and once away from Sci Fi it was Joyce & Faulkner & Kafka & Pynchon & Gaddis & Donal

One of my favourite Canadian authors - and the list is short - is Douglas Glover. Glover does it right. Included in this rightness is his online magazine Numero Cinq. And I am rightfully thrilled to have story published there now:

“[E]verything is fiction. When you tell yourself the story of your life, the story of your day, you edit and rewrite and weave a narrative out of a collection of random experiences and events. Your conversations are fiction. Your friends and loved ones—they are characters you have created. And your arguments with them are like meetings with an editor—please, they beseech you, you beseech them, rewrite me. You have a perception of the way things are, and you impose it on your memory, and in this way you think, in the same way that I think, that you are living something that is describable. When of course, what we actually live, what we actually experience—with our senses and our nerves—is a vast, absurd, beautiful, ridiculous chaos.”
Keith Ridgway
