ALEXIS, Andre; BAZIJU [Roo Borson and Kim Maltman]: HIJ Ten
ALEXIS, Andre; BAZIJU [Roo Borson and Kim Maltman]. HIJ Ten. Toronto: BookThug, 2015. Limited Edition. 120x165mm. Stapled Wrappers. Fine. np. One of 30 copies issued. Two stapled chapbooks, each with HIJ handstamped to the front cover above the author's name and the date 18/01/2015; 20 pages (Alexis) and 16 pages (Baziju) respectfully; both housed in a plain white envelope with HIJ / TEN hand stamped to the front. Produced for the tenth installment of a reading series called HIJ, loosely based on a journal run by the hosts Jay & Hazel Millar in the early 1990s. Alexis' booklet contains dog poetry from his novel Fifteen Dogs; Baziju's booklet contains three prose poems and three translations from the Chinese of Li Bai. The reading was a unique occasion as it was the first time in all their friendship that Alexis and Borson/Maltman had ever read together. Other firsts: it was produced for the first ever public reading of Baziju's translations from the Chinese of Li Po, as well as the first public reading from Alexis' Fifteen Dogs, which went on to win the 2015 Giller Prize. Alexis has neatly signed his chapbook on the front.

ALLAND, Sandra: Blissful Times
A creature, a possible he actually, in perhaps to whereas,it hardly / it indeed, be ëfellow.íBe asking to appear at, asking to think of, Other.You would ask about the heart, the needs,the times all great, not peace.See peace for moon, one moon,does your look seem less?Deal time into this when.Then what left? Do any of us really speak the same language? Blissful Times is a collection of poetry that tries to find out. Beginning with found text from Samuel Beckettís Happy Days, Sandra Alland ëtranslatesí the poem 65 times, morphing it into different poetic forms and emotional states, even different media. Using formal constraints, specialty dictionaries, internet search and translation engines, voice-activated software, the weather, global news and personal experiences, Alland invents pieces ranging from lyric poetry to sound poetry, from theatre to rant, from photography to Boggle. Edgy, passionate, amusing and intelligent, Blissful Times is a poetic cocktail for our troubled times.Sandra Alland is a writer and multimedia artist who has published and presented her work in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Bermuda, Spain, Scotland and England. Her first full-length book, Proof of a Tongue was hailed as ëa stunning first collection of poetry, displaying immense talent and skill.í Known for her evocative readings and performances, Sandra incorporates sound and movement into poetry in fresh and exciting ways. A bookseller and micropress publisher, she advocates for the protection and nourishment of independent publishers and bookstores. Sandra has been living for 33 years - 19 in Scarborough and 14 in Toronto.77pp; 5.25 x 8.5 paperbackISBN 0-9781587-6-8978-0-9781587-6-7 $20.00AVAILABLE
