Production Notes: May 18, 2018

Happy long weekend everyone! I’m about to head to the Pinery for four days of camping, but here’s what is going on at Biblioasis this week:

  • CNQ 102 is getting well under way. The genre issue is staring to look pretty exciting as I typeset the pieces. A number of writers tell of their first monsters, sitting alongside pieces on Bruce Lee, Indigenous Sci-Fi, and Jay Stevens’ STUNNING comic adaption of an excerpt from Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake. You don’t want to miss it.
  • This week I am skipping ahead of announced books to let you know about something coming down the pipeline: Le Plongeur by Stéphane Larue. This is a book about a metalhead artist with a gambling problem who ends up working as a dishwasher. As both a metalhead and ex-kitchen worker, I have to say Larue gets it.
  • Finally, my niece was visiting the office, but left Mickey behind, so naturally we put him to work:

First we took him to the board room for some training and instruction.


Then he made galleys…


…but of course the printer jammed.


So we sent him to storage to get some books.


Even imaginary workers get breaks, and they use them to read our own books!


Last job for the day: helping catch up on  Against Amazon chapbook binding—with a glass of whisky


And at the end of the day, he enjoyed a relaxing drink.
