HELWIG, Maggie, and Bronwen WALLACE (eds.). Coming Attractions 89. [Ottawa]: Oberon Press, (1989). Paperback Edition. Pp (7), 8-100, (4). 8vo, illust rated brown card covers, lettered in black. "Here we have three young writers on the edge of professional maturity. Brian Burke and Jean Rysstad both come from Vancouver. Burke refuses to comment on his own work, adding that once his stories are finished he never reads them. Michelle Heinemann, who lives in Calgary, writes anxious stories that are full of disturbing mysteries. Rysstad is more conventional and closer to her roots. Her last story ends with a telling image of mother and daughter in each other's arms, soaked in vomit but 'nearly home'." -- from back cover. Includes the following stories: Brian Burke's "You Must Remember This", "Anarchy & Other Anarchies", and "Love & Limerence", Michelle Heinemann's "Looking for Carey", "Home Pictures", and "The Blue Jacket", and Jean Rysstad's "Contiguous", "HometownPapers", and "Singing in the Dark". Very good. 15.00
