Other local literary events listed here include an evening with Robert Kroetsch at the Seagram Museum, and Joseph Gold and Jane Urquhart book launch also at Seagram's.

She also wishes him every success.
  • a short note to Eric McCormack from Paul relates to specifications for the length of a piece to be written by the author, and the date by which it is required. It would seem that the piece in question was most likely a review for Books in Canada.

  • the extent to which his works are metafictions, fictions about making fictions;
  • intertextuality in his works;
  • Postmodernism and his works;
  • the extent to which his writing is genre-centered;
  • the connection between his landscapes and the sense of dread they evoke;
