The Marginal Ride Anthology

Deux Voiliers Publishing (2019)

Edited by Ian Thomas Shaw and Timothy Niedermann, with contributions from Sang Kim, Jerry Levy, Michael Mirolla, Timothy Niedermann, Ursula Pflug, Ian Thomas Shaw, Geza Tatrallyay and Caroline Vu.​

What is it to be marginalized? To be left out of society? Your ambitions thwarted by your circumstances? A man wanting to be Noah, a sadistic bandy-legged thug, a young girl abandoned on a boat of refugees, kids seeing the world through a bowl of spoiled rice, the twilight of death's approach—these stories and more are the grist of The Marginal Ride anthology. Eclectic in style, unflinching to the art of short fiction, eight Canadian and American writers present a brilliant array of themes. And Deux Voiliers Publishing invites you to take the ride with them.

Choosing Eleonore

by Andrée A. Gratton

Translated by Ian Thomas Shaw

Guernica Editions April 2021

Choosing Eleonore tells the story of a one-way friendship, of tragic loneliness. In it, award-winning Québec author Andrée A. Gratton explores the syndrome of the delusion of being loved. Centred on two young women: Eleonore and Marianne, this is Marianne's story. From the first sentence, we feel that something is wrong in her perception of reality. "Long before we met, Eleonore had been dreaming of me," she says. But who is this Eleonore, whom Marianne had never spoken to? What is so fascinating about her? Not humiliation, rebuffs or rejection will disabuse Marianne of her certainty of being loved by Eleonore.
