"The short story, once the mostneglected of literary forms, has gained such currency in Canada that publi shers are beginning to consider it as a source of profit, This it still is not. But we at Oberon have largely created the market for short fiction in Canada, and by our choices we continue to shape and model the form. This year we have a story by Marian Engel, one of her last, and stories by such old hands as W.P. Kinsella, Norman Levine and Jane Rule, as well as stories by a galaxy of newcomers from Edna Alford to Carol Windley". -- From back cover. Includes the following stories: Edna Alford's "At Mrs. Warder's House", Jane Rule's "Dulce", Robert G. Sherrin's "Man in the Black Magic Box", Sheldon Currie's "The Accident", Marion Johnson's "Coming of Age in Canada", Norman Levine's "Django, Karfunkelstein & Roses", Carol Windley's "Moths", W.P. Kinsella's "Avis de Vente", Douglas Glover's "Dog Attempts to Drown Man in Saskatoon", and Marian Engel's Under the Hill". Slight nicking to headof spine, else very good. 15.00
