Here are the reading details:

Wednesday, May 20, 7:30, at Vancouver Central Library

Thursday, May 21, 7 pm, at Russell Books in Victoria

Friday, May 22, 7 pm, at Audrey’s Books in Edmonton

Past contributor R.W. Gray ("Blink" in Fiddlehead no. 256, Summer 2013) will be launching his new book Entropic on Thursday, June 18, 7pm at Westminster Books in Fredericton. 

According to the publisher, "R. W. Gray finds the place where the beautiful, the strange, and the surreal all meet — sometimes meshing harmoniously, sometimes colliding with terrible violence, launching his characters into a redefined reality. A lovestruck man discovers the secret editing room where his girlfriend erases all her flaws; a massage artist finds that she has a gift, but is uncertain of the price; a beautiful man sets out to be done with beauty; and a gay couple meets what appear to be younger versions of themselves, learning that history can indeed repeat itself."
