Galleon V Literary Journal, Lee D. Thompson, Editor

The Galleon literary journal’s stated mission is to “showcase both up-and-coming and established authors, with a focus on Atlantic Canadian authors”. It is edited by Lee D. Thompson.
This is the fifth volume, and it has just been released. Edition V has 160 pages of short stories, poetry and book reviews from 22 Atlantic Canadian authors and poets.  Included is a clever short story from Miramichi’s own Jamie Gibbs. His story “Useless” presents us with Nell, a disease-deformed woman (“You look like a witch” her young nephew tells her) with an iron will who nevertheless finds love (sort-of) and a house of her own. Book reviews of Greg Hollingshead’s Act Normal, Michelle Butler Hallett’s This Marlowe, Thom Conroy’s The Naturalist, David Winner’s Tyler’s Last and M. Travis Lane’s Crossover round out this underrated gem of a literary journal.
