First: a bit of self-promo. An excerpt from my new novel is online! Horrifying and true. Check it out here.
Quite note, soon to be obsolete: if you’re interested in attending an online book launch for Brent Van Staalduinen’s BOY, it’s tonight, Oct 1, at 7 pm. Just visit www.brentvanstaalduinen.com for info! Hosted by me. 😀
Welcome to the autumn, folks! Hope it hasn’t been too bad where you are (the week has been grey here, which…isn’t…helpful?)
Today’s guest is author Mark Sampson. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Mark (however slightly) and it was fun to talk to him again on Get Lit. His novel, All The Animals On Earth, is available now from the good folks at Wolsak & Wynn. Enjoy!
Happy Thursday! Today’s episode of Get Lit features an interview with poet Ross Belot. Another great experience for me – I learn a lot when I interview poets (well, when I interview anyone, really). Ross’ new collection is called Moving to Climate Change Hours and its’ available through Wolsak & Wynn.
I also took a moment to chat with Tim Hanna from The City & The City Books, here in Hamilton, about how they’ve been doing during the pandemic. Even if you’re not from around here, the story is likely similar to a bookstore near you. Enjoy the show.
Okay, so, it’s cold. I mean, ice cold. Tauntaun won’t make it to the first marker Hoth cold. At least by Hamilton standards.
Is there a better day to talk about a story based loosely on The Snow Queen?
Hey everyone! Happy new year!
Hope everything is splendid in your worlds. Mine is as swirly as ever. I’m struggling to figure out what’s wrong with my voice, but nevertheless still planning on narrating my own audiobook in the near future. I have a very old manuscript in my publisher’s hands, with the potential for publication; I’m working on a second-and-a-half draft, if you will, of the new book. Plenty happening.
A bit of local content on the first half of today’s show. Noelle Allen from Wolsak & Wynn joins us, on behalf of the Hamilton Arts Council Literary Advisory Committee (I would rather call it HACLAC but it’s maybe too reminiscent of the Aflac duck). We talk about next week’s Hamilton Literary Awards.
Next up, someone else form the Wolsak family – senior editor and poet Paul Vermeersch. We talk about poetry and his latest collection, the excellent Self Defence for the Brave and Happy. Hope you enjoy our conversation!
Hey all! In a bit of a rush today so just a quick note on today today’s guests. We have Chris Bailey (who was on last week) reading some poems to start. After that, a feature interview with Andrew Wilmot, whose fun, creepy and insightful novel, The Death Scene Artist, is out through Wolsak and Wynn. Enjoy!
I’m currently away on what I like to think is a well-earned vacation, so I’ll keep it brief!
Rabindranath Maharaj‘s Adjacentland is an incredibly unique work. Funny, weird, thoughtful, reminiscent (to me, at least) of some on Murakami’s work, though more so in imagination than in language and tone. Hope your enjoy our conversation!
