From a remote island on Canada's rugged east coast, author Eric Colbourne brings us another collection of compelling stories, some surreal, some filled with grief, and others in a lighter and more nostalgic vein.
During the Klondike Gold Rush of 1897, a young couple leaves the island to seek riches in the Yukon Territory, a decision that leads to misfortune.
An older woman reflects on her husband's terminal illness, her son's death, and her own mortality.
A young man coming of age in the early 1960s learns to harness the power of radio waves to teleport to exotic destinations.
The online world of scams and skulduggery presents unique opportunities for an individual with an internet obsession.
These twelve powerful stories blend the sublime with the outlandish for moments of pure entertainment and self-discovery.
"Imbued with impish wit and heartfelt honesty, Colbourne has found his voice in Chronicles of Fair Island."
-Glen Tilley, Producer/Director, Former Head of CBC Radio's Arts and Entertainment
"Entertaining stories from a strangely familiar NL community in a creative writing style that captures the imagination."
