Jason Guriel, Pure Product
In his second book of poems, Jason Guriel cuts a dazzling figure—whipsmart,charismatic, with a mischievousness always eager to play for more serious stakes. Guriel’s way of seeing the world is low-key and sly: he shows us the big picture by enumerating all the small ones. Although a zealous celebrator of ordinariness, his tightly turned lines have the courage of their own spiky oddity.

Robert Moore, Figuring Ground
In a darkly elegant collection of verse, Robert Moore examines his family, his future and cows. These poems border on noir, with the collection interspersing philosophy, sardonic wit and arresting imagery. From the "unlikely pair of cupcakes" that are his Mother's girlhood friends, to the philosophizing cows that end the book, this is a collection of unexpected turns, intricate verse and a strong, original voice.
[Wolsak & Wynn]

Norm Sibum, The Pangborn Defence
Norm Sibum's The Pangborn Defence marks a departure from his previous verse, and will be something of a surprise for those who have followed his career over the last thirty years. A suite of poems as letters to personages both real and imagined, there are political undertones to many rarely seen in Sibum's ouevre. But there is still the same attention to detail, the same craftsmanship, humour, love and originality.
