Well, look what’s come slithering through my letterbox this week! Two new Surrealist publications from Canada. Wet off the press.
First up, the Ottawa Surrealist Group’s irregular periodical Chimera makes a splash with its “flood issue”. Inspired and/or provoked by the 2017 and 2019 Ottawa river floods, it contains games, dream reports and other damp deliriums.
For further info and to request a copy of Chimera, contact the Ottawa Surrealist Group.
Then comes the second spurt with the arrival of The Oystercatcher. This issue of the Surrealist-anarchist magazine sees editorial team Ron Sakolsky and Sheila Nopper being joined by Gorgon favourite Janice Hathaway, whose “transmorgraphy” technique produces a lavish centrefold.
The issue also features texts, games, images and reviews, including a new tract by Paris Surrealist Guy Girard, an appreciation of Laura Corsiglia by Terri Geis, and a tribute to Diane di Prima by Penelope Rosemont.

Take a peek behind the veil.
