Global Poetry Anthology 2013
Mary Dalton

The Global Poetry Anthology is a one-of-a-kind collection of contemporary previously-unpublished poems gathered from all corners of the English speaking world. An international editorial board ensures the present volume's cosmopolitan palette, and the "blind" selection process guarantees that choices have been made according to poetic calibre alone.

Vehicule Press's Signal Editions is proud to offer the second volume in the Global Poetry Anthology Series--a rich and exciting mix of established and emerging voices.
Burgundy Jazz
Nancy Marrelli

This book is a celebration of  the Little Burgundy district’s contribution to the story of jazz in Montreal. From the 1920s until the early 1950s Montreal had an international reputation as a glamorous wide open city with a lively nightlife and great jazz. The swinging clubs of Little Burgundy were an important part of that reputation. Explore the textures of Montreal’s jazz era with over 125 rare jazz artifacts, including swizzle sticks and menus from legendary Montreal nightclubs, flapper dresses, porter uniforms, old LP vinyl records, cocktail shakers, and sheet music. Each object tells a fascinating story! Preface by Stanley Péan.

New Tab
Guillaume Morissette

Set in Montreal, New Tab spans a year in the life of a twenty-six year old videogame designer as he attempts to reset his life, in the process chronicling with humor disillusion, boredom, self-destruction, Facebook chats, Concordia University, bilingualism, good parties, bad parties, a backyard cinema, social anxiety and running a possibly illegal DIY venue.

Written in a simple yet bold and astonishing style, New Tab is a profoundly intimate tale of self-reinvention and ambiguous relationships. A sharp, funny, modern novel from one of the most unique new writers in Canada.
Satisfying Clicking Sound
Jason Guriel

Satisfying Clicking Sound is a book that’s never afraid to make a show of itself. In his third collection, Jason Guriel gives us a quick-thinking colloquial style that segues deftly from deadpan wit to deep emotion. Like the hard-to-master knuckleball he celebrates as “less spun / than blown / out onto the air, / its course unknown,” Guriel’s poetry is equal parts art, talent, luck, and mystery. Consistently rewarding, Satisfying Clicking Sound is a quicksilver performance from one of Canadian poetry’s most distinctive new voices.
Dante's House
Richard Greene

Richard Greene's first collection since winning the 2010 Governor-General's Award for Poetry, take as their subject the rumors, misunderstandings and half-truths that often comprise our knowledge of others. With an astonishing gift for capturing states of feeling, Greene's new poems movingly reflect on the "presence and absence, glory and disarray" of our flawed life, moving from his mother's oil paintings to harrowing conditions at a corrections facility to recollections of a much-loved mentor. The capstone of the book is the magnificent title poem. Written in fluent, colloquial terza rima and set in sun-drenched Siena during the frenzied pageantry of Il Palio-the Italian city's bi-annual horse race-it is a brilliant, beautifully realized achievement that consolidates Greene's reputation as an emerging master of narrative verse.
