Decalogue 2

Edited by: Rob McLennan

With the response to Decalogue: ten Ottawa poets (2006), we decided to follow up with Decalogue 2: ten Ottawa fiction writers. Because we are the capital city, Ottawa as a whole is often accused of having no identity of its own; instead, some of our strength comes from our transient nature, interacting with ideas larger and more multiple than a single base. Edited by rob mclennan, this collection features the work by Emily Falvey, Matthew Firth, Gabriela Goliger, Alison Gresik, John-James Ford, Clare Latremouille, John Lavery, Nadine McInnis, rob mclennan and Ian Roy.
