OKAY. It’s June. Local bookstores still have a few copies of the Elephant Mountain Review but they won’t hang around. They have been well received at various waiting rooms in Nelson, at Jennie’s Garden in Winlaw, Your Arts Desire and 1896 Books in Kaslo—operated by the venerable and erudite Ian Fraser. I have taken several advance orders for the fall/winter issue, telling subscribers that it will be coming out sometime in September.
This issue contains a wonderful memorial poem about the Metis heritage of Josie Ahearn, two very different but equally vivid pieces by Kathy Hartley, a wry nostalgic fiction about love by Sandra Hartline five different vistas of the exotic inner world of Denis Foley and a sort poem by Laurence A.G. Moss.
