Chemical Valley, my new collection of short stories including a Journey Prize Finalist (“Chemical Valley”) and a National Magazine Award nominee (“Six Six Two Fifty”) is now available at your local independent book store. You can also buy online through the usual suspects or directly from the publisher, Biblioasis.
The book has received some lovely media from The Miramichi Reader and The Dalhousie Gazette. Madison Scanlan at The Gazette positions the book as a piece of “dirty nature writing” and asks if that might be your new favourite genre. For the Miramichi reader, Ian Colford notes that “Throughout the book, Huebert’s prose shines, frequently catching the reader off guard with startling but memorable turns of phrase and delirious imaginative leaps. And while the manic energy, eccentric humour and wry observations on life and love keep us entertained, the book’s rich emotional core draws us in, touching us at the most profound level.”
I’ve been doing events for the book throughout the fall, and am pleased to have a few more upcoming. I’m particularly excited about the panel with two much-admired luminaries, Catherine Bush and Shaena Lambert. Please do share/attend!
