"Edson’s vivid portrayal of the urban area, as well as the working class and underclass, creates a vision of Saint John that highlights the discrepancy between the pre-modern idyllic notion of life in Atlantic Canada and the more complicated reality of the region."

THE MOON IS REAL snags Honourable Mention

Writers' Federation of New Brunswick

An 80-page excerpt from an early draft of The Moon is Real has earned an Honorable Mention for WFNB's 2012 David Adams Richards Prize for Fiction.

Back in 1997 I earned an Honourable Mention in WFNB's Short Fiction category for Killer on the Road. I was just starting to write seriously back then, so it was a great thrill. This year's Honourable Mention tells me I need to be better.

Many thanks go to WFNB for holding this competition every year.
