Harold Macy has added a third title to his list of published works, All the Bears Sing (Harbour Publishing $24.95). The prairie-born forester based in the Comox Valley, captures the magic of the West Coast in this collection of short stories. His characters include everyday fishermen and loggers, gardeners and wildland firefighters, and rock blasters and island homesteaders. First-growth fallen trees on mossy mountain slopes and the brassy orchestra of trumpeter swans play just as big a role as people in Macy’s stories. His previous novel was the historical fiction title, San Josef (Tidewater Books, 2020) about settlers seeking new lives, solace and revenge in the far northwest corner of Vancouver Island in the late 1800s. Macy studied writing with the UBC Mentorship Program, Victoria (BC) School of Writing, Sage Hills (SK), and North Island College. His work has appeared in PRISM International, The Malahat Review, Orion, The Broken City, Rhubarb and others. 9781990776007
