Last issue of the Globe Books section today. Get it as a souvenir of when the mainstream media in Canada cared about literature nearly as much as advertising revenue. Furthermore, looks like there’ll be another two week “hiatus”, but this time to “retool”. After the raging lie they told us in August, are you sure they’ll be back at all?
This issue of Books will be its last in stand-alone form.
Beginning Jan. 10, Books will have a new home, in print and on the web. We’ll be part of a Focus & Books section every Saturday with the same authoritative survey of the Canadian literary scene, along with descriptions of our new online content.
We’re taking the next two weeks off to retool so that we continue to bring you not only the sharp and insightful reviews and features you have come to expect, but some new and, we hope, exciting ones.
