Being Talon’s resident master of the eerie and the unsettling, it seems fitting to highlight Larry Tremblay’s especially freaky fiction in the month of All Hallows. On Meta-Talon today, we gather his recent works of fiction, The Obese Christ, Piercing, and The Bicycle Eater. Best part? This trifecta of books is on sale until the end of the month!Tuesday October 14, 2014 in Meta-Talon
Ada King, Countess of Lovelace, 1840 (age 25)
Did you know the world’s first computer programmer was a woman? Ada Lovelace was enthralled by mathematics as a young woman, and she is also known for her lineage, being the only (legitimate) child of Romantic poet Lord Byron. Lovelace wrote in the 1840s what are now recognized as the first computational algorithms, and she wrote prescient commentary on the future of computing.
By complete coincidence, Talon has recently published no fewer than three titles that make mention of Lovelace. Today on Meta-Talon we share excerpts from these titles, in honour of Ada Lovelace Day (October 14, 2014).Tuesday September 30, 2014 in Meta-Talon
St. Jerome, the patron saint of translators
Every September 30th, readers, writers, and publishers mark International Translation Day by honouring the translators who help bring great literature of all kinds to new audiences.

On this day, we say thank you and submit a few intriguing passages on the art of translation.
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Canada Council for the Arts; the Government of Canada through the Canada Book Fund (CBF); and the Province of British Columbia through the British Columbia Arts Council for our publishing activities.
