1 HANCOCK, Geoff, ed. METCALF, John BIRDSELL, Sandra URQUHART, Jane Metavisions : An Anthology of Short Stories
Quadrant Editions, Montreal, 1983, ISBN:086495025x 
HANCOCK, Geoff, (ed.). Metavisions : An Anthology of Short Stories. Edited by Geoff Hancock. (Montreal): Quadrant Editions, (1983). First Printing. Pp. (4),5-227,(1). 8vo, illustrated blue card covers with white lettering to front and spine. "No reader can encounter 'Metavisions' without become aware of two things. First, these stories are crossings to someplace else. Fiction, as John Metcalf notes in 'Single Gents Only' is about more than its subject matter. The scruffy student in his sucrrilous boarding house follows stairways that lead into the depths of perception, to a time when childhoodwas enchantment, and language put you in contact with an absolute world. S econd, you will find in the depths of these stories the perceptible murmur of another story. [...] As places of passage, 'Metavisions' are doors, windows, mirrors, and staircases. In and out, backward and forward, up and down. The images of 'Metavisions' show the shapeless presence of other books, shining through these pages like watermarks, back, perhas to primal myth." -from the rear cover.
