More fiction

I’ve been writing more fiction. This time, it’s published in the mighty Joyland. My editor, Dave McGimpsey, came up with the fantastic title: “St. Urbain’s Horse’s Ass.”

Rehtaeh Parsons and the “right to be forgotten”

I had a piece in Saturday’s Globe aboutĀ online memory, Rehtaeh Parsons, the right to be forgotten, Borges, other things.

Also, if you find my friend Jef’s cat, Lucius, I will write a short story about you.

Nods from the National Magazine Awards

Today, Maisonneuve was nominated for fourteen National Magazine Awards. This puts Maisonneuve among the top ten most-nominated magazines for the fifth year in a row, and it’s Maisonneuve’s second-best tally yet, on the heels of our sixteen nominations in 2011 (not to mention our Magazine of the Year win in 2012).

I’m especially pleased with a few key nominations: Best Single Issue, for our Tenth Anniversary Issue; Magazine Covers, for our controversial “Gays for God” cover; and my own nomination in the One of a Kind category for “Wild Justice,” an essay I wrote about animal trials.

Also, here’s another Globe interview I did, with a guy who sells shares in his own life. I was also recently interviewed for a Rover Arts series on young Montreal writers. And my new band, DEBT, recorded some demos.
