168 BLACKWOOD, David). GOUGH, William. PROULX, Annie (appreciation). BLACKWOOD, David David Blackwood : Master Printmaker. First Edition in dustjacket.
Douglas & McIntyre, Vancouver, 2001, ISBN:1550548727 
(BLACKWOOD, David). GOUGH, William. David Blackwood : Master Printmaker. With an appreciation by Annie Proulx. Vancouver: Douglas & McIntyre, (2001). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-xiii,(1),1-178. Beautifully illustrated in colour with 141 examples of Blackwood's etchings. Oblong 4to, grey cloth, silver titles to spine. "David Blackwood was born in 1941 in Wesleyville, Newfoundland, into a family with a long seafaring tradition. His great-grandfather, Ned Bishop, was a captain; his grandfather, Captain Albert Blackwood, was in command o fthe S.S. Imogene, and his father, Edward, was a skipper in the fisheries. David Blackwood began drawing and painting as a boy, but it was not until the 1960s, as a student at the Ontario College of Art, thathe began to demonstrate his skill with the etching process. Today, he is r ecognized internationally as a master printmaker, and his work appears in collections all over the world. This book brings togehter 141 of the artist's most evocative etchings in a splendidly produced celebration of his work.Newfoundland in the early 1940s had few roads, little electricity and more in common with the years behind than the years ahead. People were united b y their love for the sea and their total dependence upon it, and community ties ran deep. Blackwood's art is rooted in the oral narrative tradition and strong social values of his birthplace. Whether depicting the harsh griefof a death on the ice, the exhilaration caused by a ship's safe return, a woman's quiet vigil at a window, the heartbreaking relocation of an island home, or the magic of mummering during the twelve days of Christmas, his etchings are filled with story, drama, and the deepest of connections to a place and a people." - from the dustjacket. Contents: Proulx's "Newfoundland as Atlantis"; The Place We Stand To Fly a Kite; One Small Island; A Veil ofShadows; Labrador; Caught In Ice; A Wonderful Great Mummer.

178 BLUNT, Giles Blackfly Season : A novel. First Edition
Random House Canada, Toronto, 2005, ISBN:0679312439 
BLUNT, Giles. Blackfly Season : A novel. (Toronto) : Random House Canada, (2005). First Printing. Pp. (6),[1]-326,(4). 8vo, black paper-covered boardswith gilt lettering to spine.

Giles Blunt (b. February 2, 1952, Windsor, Ontario).

This is No.3 in the excellent John Cardinal series.

"It's spring in Algonquin Bay, and the blackflies are driving people a little mad. Detectives John Cardinal and Lise Delorme have a different sort of mystery on their hands: a young woman has wandered bug-bitten out of the bush and can't remember who she is or how she got there. The reason? A small-calibre bullet is delicately lodged in her brain.

Then a body turns up in a cave in the woods, the corpse of one Wombat Guthrie, a biker / drug dealer whose head, hands and feet have been removed but whose tattoos are unmistakeable. At first the two cases could not seem further apart. But subsequent clues, and another brutal murder, seem to connect both of them to the fortunes of a small, even amateurish, drug gang that has recently hit the big time under the leadership of an Ojibwa shaman named Red Bear.

With the help of a neuropsychologist, the mysterious young woman regains some of her memory. But try as he might, Cardinal just can't tie the threads together. And Delorme begins to suspect that the innocent young woman may not be so innocent after all, and that her recently returned 'memories' may not be the whole truth. Red Bear may not be what he seems, either. Is he really a native shaman or is he a monster with an appetite for savage murder?" - from the dust jacket.

Giles Blunt (b. February 2, 1952, Windsor, Ontario).

Blunt's first published novel.

"Enter the fury-haunted and terrifying world of artist Nicholas Hood and be sure you will not, cannot, leave it before the final cast of fate's dice. Nick is an angry man. At thirty-five he has yet to make a significant sale; among the half dozen artists at his dealer's show, he is the only one overlooked by the Times's critic; his paintings of imaginary murders in vivid New York settings, while admired for their technique, are faulted for their lack of conviction. His musician wife, Susan, is the sole breadwinner. Nick is entertaining thoughts of suicide when he encounters a strange man in a bar - a dwarfish, pitted, and hideous man with a compelling voice and message, one Andre Bellisle.

Bellisle says he can help Nick - for a price - and proceeds in chilling fashion to prove his point. Hle can foresee the deaths of others and thus can thus position Nick to achieve the reality that has eluded him in his murder paintings." - from the dust jacket.
