[cover of In Search of New Babylon] Friday March 17, 2017 in Meta-Talon

In Which Caspar Tootsey Joins the Phantom Cavalry

All the main characters in this novel are invented, except one. All the towns are real, except for New Babylon. But if such a place were to be imagined, it would be a Wild West town where gunfights are fair play and the law bans only the lawman. It is a perilous place, where the beauty of the desert landscape takes your breath away with the same power as an open blade and a gash to the throat.

On that gruesome note, we hope you enjoy this teaser, lifted from pages 36–38 of In Search of New Babylon.

[The Days cover] Thursday March 2, 2017 in Meta-Talon

Today is Annual Day: A Very Short Story

Today on Meta-Talon, please enjoy a very short story from M.A.C. Farrant’s book The Days: Forecasts, Warnings, Advice.

Annual Day

Annual Day happens once a year and it is never good. This year the date is March 2.

Book List: Migration and Multiculturalism

Migration – the movement of humans from one place to another with the intention of settling – has been top of mind in recent weeks given certain political changes and policy implementations in certain western countries, in recent months in response to the failure of state in Syria and the outflow of refugees from that region, and in recent years characterized by a heightened sensitivity to the possibility of east-west terrorist attacks. Perhaps Canada is a beacon to other states? Or perhaps we still have much learning to do? In the spirit of learning, we recommend twelve Talon books on the topic of migration, refugees, and the immigrant experience.

A new cover for our sweetest play – right on time for Valentine’s Day

From 1988 until the end of 2016, Salt-Water Moon was in print with its original yellow cover, which featured now-outdated type design and a production still from one of the original productions of this sweet play. Now, as the play experiences something of a revival, and as the book goes into its eighth printing, we are pleased to show off the newly redesigned cover of Salt-Water Moon.
