A handful of reviews and notes have popped up online recently.

Pearl Pirie said some very thoughtful and accurate things about Monty Reid’s Site Conditions on her blog.

Stuart Ross was as kind and encouraging as ever over at Bloggamooga!

rob mclennan discussed Jim Smith’s new book Exit Interviews, and his reading in Ottawa before the book fair last Friday. He also discusses Jesslyn Delia Smith. Apt. 9 is a big fan of Jesslyn’s–I was lucky enough to edit and print her first chapbook through In/Words while we were both students at Carleton University. The promise of that book is certainly being realized in her recent work. Take a look at what Peter Gibbon says about her over here.

And finally, Dave Currie reviewed Jeremy Hanson-Finger’s The Delicious Fields in the new issue of In/Words, which you should pick up tonight at the Clocktower Brew Pub where Claudia Coutu Radmore will be reading in the excellent In/Words Monthly Reading Series.

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to read and think about and talk about the books, it means the world to us! Do you work for a mag or run a blog that reviews chapbooks? Send us a note!

We’re still in prep-mode for Meet the Presses Screaming Chapbook Market on Saturday July 9 in Toronto. Will we see you there? What did you get at the Ottawa fair? How are the first proper days of summer treating you?
