Praise for Raincoast Chronicles Fourth Five

“By far the largest of the collections at 420 pages, Fourth Five is living proof that some things just keep getting better. Containing 32 inimitable stories, poems and articles from issues sixteen to twenty, the volume expounds on such diverse matters as supernatural deer, the cannery village of Ceepeecee, fishing-fleet superstitions and the coveted recipe for donkey boiler coffee. Writers include coast favourites Howard White, Doreen Armitage, Tom Henry, Dick Hammond, Vickie Jensen and Bus Griffiths.”
