REVIEW: Quill and Quire

“With some fantasies you’re invited to wade in, discovering the principles, nature, and backstories of the invented world step by step. Others are best approached by diving in at the deep end. Kabungo is the latter sort; take a deep breath and do a cannonball.”

From Quill and Quire‘s rave new review of Kabungo. Read the full article here.



A new year … and a new story. Read my latest for The Walrus, “Charlie,” right here. It’s about a drunk elephant … and a miraculous boy. It’s dedicated to my friend Muzi, who vanished a long time ago…

From now on, my Walrus stories will appear every two weeks – every second Tuesday.

Remember: if you like my stories, let The Walrus know by sending a quick note to letters@thewalrus.ca, a tweet to @walrusmagazine or slapping a comment on their facebook page. Every message helps.

Thank-you so much, for reading…
