Oh, and speaking of summer haps - if you're in Toronto on Friday, August 6th, check out the Incongruous Quarterly launch. If you are headed that way from Vancouver, let me know and I can give you a stack of books to read for me at the launch. That last sentence will make much more sense after the issue goes online on Saturday...
Oh oh, and speaking of haps - High Altitude Poetry, which at some point moved from a "bi-monthly" publishing schedule to a "print issues whenever we have money and time without updating the issue's stated publication date" publishing schedule, has just release their Spring 2010 issue. If you're up at SFU, be sure to grab a copy!
