October 31 - Value Village

Killing time, as usual, and for some reason Value Village continues to be a reliable source of older BC writing:
  • Ken Cathers, Images on Water (ninety-nine cents, for a 1976 poetry collection from Lantzville's wonderful Oolichan Books)
  • Roderick Haig-Brown, Fisherman's Winter ($1.99, the one set about fishing the rivers of Chile and Argentina)
  • John Hay, Nature's Year: The Seasons of Cape Cod ($1.99 for a 1961 nature-writing classic)
  • Eric Nicol, Vancouver ($1.99 -- serious rather than humorous, but still the Nicol touch)
  • Tom Parkin, Wet Coast Words (ninety-nine cents, for a BC "dictionary")
