O, Switzerland! O, Canada! It's a Dusie (#10)

Dusie 10: the Canadian issue
Guest-edited by rob mclennan

Most TSky readers already know that Switzerland-based U.S. expat Susana Gardner is a DIY goddess whose benevolence knows no bounds, so you may not be surprised to learn that she has now turned her attention to the U.S.'s other border country*. Yes, Susana has added a feature on Canadian writers to the long list of her egalitarian endeavors, which have already made possible not only Dusie the mag, but also Dusie books, as well as one of the more astounding collections of chapbooks in recent history, via the kollektiv (also here).

Guest-edited by none other than rob mclennan, Dusie #10 is "an introduction for some, and a further conversation for others," with new writing by derek beaulieu, Joe Blades, George Bowering, Rob Budde, Emily Carr, Jen Currin, Amanda Earl, Lainna Lane El Jabi, Jesse Patrick Ferguson, Judith Fitzgerald, Asher Ghaffar, Phil Hall, Sharon Harris, Peter Jaeger, Monica Kidd, Anne Le Dressay, Gil McElroy, Barry McKinnon, rob mclennan, Kim Minkus, Pearl Pirie, Monty Reid, Shane Rhodes, Sandra Ridley, Stan Rogal, Natalie Simpson, Christine Stewart, Aaron Tucker and Chris Turnbull.

As ever, Dusie is free. Download it here:
* You know, the colder one, whose literature we Americans tend to ignore with an intensity almost equal to that with which we examine the "papers" of anyone who "looks" as if they might from the warmer one that so terrifies is the bread and butter of this bloodless Satanic hag.
