I am embarking on a very special project — the assembling, preparation and introduction of a volume of bpnichol’s collected fiction. This collection — which has the approval of Nichol’s estate and a publisher confirmed — will bring together, in a single volume, all of bpNichol’s novels and short-stories.

Nichol’s novels — ANDY / FOR JESUS LUNATICK (Coach House, 1969), JOURNAL (Coach House, 1978), EXTREME POSITIONS (Longspoon, 1981), STILL (Pulp, 1983) — and his short story collections NIGHTS ON PROSE MOUNTAIN (grOnk, 1969) and CRAFT DINNER (Aya, 1978) — are all out of print & available only as rare and collectible editions.

This new volume would return all of his fiction to print, provide bibliographical information and a critical, readerly introduction to the volume; placing Nichol’s novels in context with with poetic, publishing and community work. It will be a valuable addition to discussions on contemporary fiction and experimental prose in Canada — and be a great add to the classroom.

My editing of The Collected Fiction of bpNichol is not supported by federal or provincial grants — all support comes from you — the readers and lovers of Nichol’s work.

Supporters at this level will receive a copy of the book when completed and published —  will be thanked in the printed edition’s “editor’s acknowledgements” — and will be provided with a yearly subscription to no press . . .
