I just added a few nuanced touches to my "Reviews Review" -- a general survey of top tier Canadian (vs. some American) reviews I posted a couple of months back. This time I singled out for special praise The New Quarterly (yes, it is one of my favourites of the CanLit reviews), added some observations about Brick and its relationship between Brick Books, as well as some qualifiers -- i.e. that many of the reviews publish the same writers, even the same types of poems -- to a general observation that there is "not much to choose" between many of them. That post is of course a work in indefinite progress. And I don't even know if anyone is definitely interested. Well, I am.
