The covers above belong to the Signal Editions fall list. On the left is Meridian Line by Paul Belanger (translated from the French by Judith Cowan). On the right is Where We Might Have Been by Don Coles.
Belanger is publisher of Les Éditions du Noroît and one of Quebec's premier poets. I am immensely pleased to finally be able to include a translation of his poetry in the series.
Coles requires, I think, no introduction (though if you need one, this is a good place to start). With the recent death of P.K. Page, we might arguably call him Canada's greatest living English-language poet. But there is no argument about this: his upcoming book is a stunner.
