Reviewer call closed

Pile O'Books to reviewThanks to everyone who responded to the call for reviewers on; that call is now closed.

We had a great response with more than a dozen people responding, and a good portion of the piles you see to your left have been sent off to the new review team. The reviews have already started coming back, which is excellent. Thanks guys!

While we’re on the subject, it’s been a couple of months since we last did a links round up of the reviews on our sister site, so here’s what’s new:

And wow, that’s more than I had originally thought there were. Check ‘em out, see what’s new and worthwhile and maybe you’ll find something you like.

Reviewers wanted for

Spiral NatureOur sister site,, is looking for reviewers.

Publishers, authors and sundry send books for review and they’ve been piling up – especially unsolicited books.

Most of it looks like great stuff, but either due to time or differing areas of interest, our current review staff can’t handle the load. We need help. That’s where you come in.

If you love to read, and are interested in receiving free books and publication on, please contact me with your area(s) of interest, and provide a sample review or a sample of writing if you don’t have a review.

Bonus points if you live in Toronto, because the site has no budget, and whatever we can save on shipping goes hosting and associated costs.


Trigger 93, a new journal

By | January 27, 2011 | Print This Post | E-mail This Post | Comments Off

Trigger 93Launched in mid-December, Trigger 93 describes itself as “a radical new journal of literature, art, and the uncanny”, one that “juxtaposes magic(k)ally informed works created by established artists and academics with similar works created by established practitioners of magic(k)”. The journal is edited by Ayesha Adamo.

The first issue focuses on the Word, and includes contributions from Michael Taussig, James A Eshelman, Simryn Gill, Mikala Dwyer and Tamara Wyndham, amongst others.

The journal retails for 11$US and is available for purchase online.

I received a review copy a few weeks ago, and my review will be up shortly on

It looks like a great new journal, and I look forward to reading future issues.

Update: Review has been posted here.
