Norval Balch: poetry, odes in prose [E/EG]

Norval BalchNorval Balch is returned to the New Brunswick where he was born in those halcyon days before 1939. Now retired, from a hotch-potch career in broadcasting and marine science, he has moved to ten acres of forest on the edge of a lake, trying to rediscover his childhood. Part of that rediscovery has been seeing the world through the eyes of his Golden Retriever friends, Bundles Mustardseed and Pebbles. Norval is currently working on a book on the NB Archives collection of his father's [R.E. Balch's] photographs.

Reg Balch [1894-1994]: photographs

At the age of sixteen Reg Balch came to Canada from Britain shortly before the first Great War. From the teenager who crossed the Atlantic, he often claimed, "to ride horses," and after spending most of the war in the trenches, he turned to the scientific world to become a forest entomologist, and in the 1930s moved permanently to Fredericton, New Brunswick. Retired after almost half a century as a federal government scientist and administrator he turned to promoting environmental awareness, and to black and white photography. Two books of his photographs have been published by Goose Lane Editions, A Mind's Eye [1985], and Celebrations of Nature [1991]

Astrid Brunner [Licht]: poetry, short stories, scripts/libretti [EGF]

Astrid BrunnerAstrid Brunner, born into the chaos of World War II, has been a traveller for thrice as many years as Oysseus, and some. While donning the masks of arts journalist, editor, publisher, writer, performer, model, mendicant academic, translator, mother, professor of tongues and literatures, wife, mistress, and woman, on various stages in Europe and North America, she has perfected her favourite role: she is now a passably accomplished fool of time.

Nowadays she mainly commutes between her two Atlantic Canadian lives, with sporadic excursions into her European past: at French Lake, New Brunswick she lives in close company with her Swiss Calico Cat Ineffable; at ABcp's founding house in Halifax, Nova Scotia she tries to keep up with her Canadian Fluffy Ginger Cat Humphrey d. Cobbler.

Robert Dietz: drama, biography, history, visual art [EG]

Robert DietzRobert Dietz was born in 1924 in Mayen, a small town in the mountainous Eifel region of Germany. He came to Canada in 1951 and was active in the arts until his death in 1999. A musician in the Stadacona Band and the Royal Canadian Artillery Band, he became the General Manager of the Halifax Symphony and was the driving force in the formation of the Atlantic Symphony, Canada's first professional regional symphony orchestra.

After seven years as director of Saint Mary's University Art Gallery — during which time an Art Caravan visited schools across the Province and several extension Galleries were established, including one at the Greenwood Air Force Base — Mr. Dietz owned and operated Dresden Galleries in Halifax until his retirement in December 1990.

In 1992 he wrote Oath of Allegiance, an autobiographical account of his early youth in Germany during a time when the nation was simmering with political antagonisms. The play Gunner Schmidt at the Crossroads "has been written so that readers and viewers may learn about our past and appreciate the sacrifices made by those who served their countries--knowing about our past is the best insurance for our future."

 Kirsty Elliot

Kirsty Elliot lives "on the wrong cost," she says. But, then, "Eve said that you said that it was okay." And so it was. And is. Most especially, as Kirsty spent her first few years on the coast of Scotland, "so the cold Atlantic has made its mark on me." And as she was finishing her knitter's poem for this book [Malcolm], she was also getting ready to board the train, morning sickness and all, to ride bang across the country. But first, she said, "I must go fluff my hair and put ice skates in my suitcase." So here we are. With something else wild and gentle.

Eve Llyndorah: paintings

Eve Llyndorah was born in Scotland and moved to Canada as a child. She showed talent for art at an early age and attended NSCAD, obtaining a degree in fine arts. She has worked and studied as an artist and goldsmith in Europe and Canada, and moved to Vancouver in 1986. She now lives and works on the Island of Llyndorah, with partner Ray, and parrot Chardu. Eve returns to The Dunes on Brackley Beach, Prince Edward Island, each year, with elfish treasures of precious jewellery, as beautiful and spiritual as herself. Of her most recent coast to coast pilgrimage, she writes: “I am leaving for a few weeks, and the evening finds me picking flowers for my beloved in the rain. Such is the magic of the Island of Lllyndorah, a realm where fairies reign, and spirit caresses the earth. This is where I paint with soul, and make exquisite jewellery, fit for fairies and fit for Queens.”

Jack MacDonald

Jack MacDonald lives in and around Halifax and Dartmouth in Nova Scotia. He is a cracker barrel philosopher of true Dickensian dimensions, who philosophises and wisecracks and hurdy-gurdies his lebensphilosophical writings from door to door. He is in this book because Malcolm would have found him excellent fare for laughter and true learning. "Thanks for supporting a local writer and recording artist," says MacDonald, as he closes the door at 5835, and pockets the handful of loonies I have given him for his words in the wintry moonlight.

Rob Roy: MMLC theme & frontispiece photograph [Malcolm]

Rob Roy landed in the Maritimes in the early 1970s after leaving southern Ontario and travelling in North Africa, going against the then continuous migratory flow of youth to B.C. Always a visually oriented person, he got involved in community cable video which progressed more into the photographic realm. For the last 30 years, with architecture as his primary concentration, he has had several books on Saint John and the surrounding area published. When asked about them, he tries to recall: “Two are hardcovers simply entitled Saint John, and two are softcovers, Saint John and theFundy Region, and Saint John: The Fundy City; there is one other one, but the title I don't remember.” Rob is living in Saint John's heritage downtown, with his Ukranian wife and young son. He still endeavours to photograph his immediate environment.

Stephen E. Scott: COVER ART; sketch; photographs [Malcolm]

Stephen Scott was born amidst the clutter, smoke, and fog of the 1950s south end Saint John. He was raised in the Florence of New Brunswick, Fredericton, after which he attended, and graduated from Mount Allison University. Armed with a degree of Fine Arts [although not a marketable name, such as Stephen Porterhouse, or T-Bone Scott], went on to spend several years traveling, developing a career as a painter, teaching, and an exhausting array of menial and tiresome occupations.

One probable cause in the development of Stephen's relationship to Mac was a fascination with history and lore, which led to a friendship with noted historian, and friend-in-common, B.J. Grant. After Barrie's demise, this interest was continued with Malcolm, inspired no doubt by another common interest in the odd tipple, and discussions on life and love in general.

Stephen is currently living in rural New Brunswick, and, not content to rest on his well earned laurels, is continuing certain Maritime and personal traditions. He is working on perfecting the unobtrusive put-down, and developing acceptable levels of political incorrectness and social rebellion. Recent highlights are insider experiences in Berlin, Germany, and an ongoing exhibition schedule. As Mac was always encouraging and helpful in this artist's career, his support will be missed. Another regret for Stephen is the fact that he will be unable to impress Mac with leather pants, and other displays of worldliness and irreverence.

Jim Snowdon: mots intimes and Malcolm’s last photographic likeness

Jim Snowdon and Malcolm “go back to the fall of 1975” when they met at university in Professor Stuart MacNutt's[3] graduate seminar on Maritime History. They subsequently shared various apartments over the years, with numerous others, “traipsed around together,” and kept in touch after they both left Fredericton. Jim eventually “ended up” in the Annapolis Valley where he has lived since 1980, teaching history at Acadia University, and selling antiques and art. Jim’s photo portrait of Malcolm was taken in October 2004, a mere few months before Malcolm’s death.

George Steeves: photography

George SteevesGeorge Steeves was living in Ottawa as a schoolboy when he shot one of his first photographs, that of the newly crowned Queen; he then printed it in his darkroom in Mum's preserve closet. Women dominate the 40,000 negatives, 8,000 work prints, and 1,800 fine prints that have come since. For over thirty years he has operated out of his Halifax photo-bunker, financed by engineering work across the harbour.

Steeves exhibits principally in northern Europe and Quebec; in 1993 the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography in Ottawa mounted a retrospective exhibition. In 2004 Montreal film director Etienne Desrosiers and Cyclopes Film came to Halifax to film Portrait de l'artiste en muse, a tribute to one of Steeves's photographic works, Exile.

Edith Diane Wile lives in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, where she and her husband Darryl run the Blue Shutters Bed and Breakfast. Diane was born in Halifax, but eventually moved to Hants County, where she met Darryl. She soon became pregnant with her daughter Nicolle, and was kept busy for the next eight years with her, and then her two sons, Curtis and Darren. In 1991 she graduated from Mount Saint Vincent University with a business degree, then ventured into the workforce. A personal crisis disabled her from working just at the point when she was making a go of it. During the crisis, Diane began to keep a journal, and write poetry, "releasing my inner muse." In time she learned to express herself on paper, and is currently working on a book about dragons, entitled The Sun Moth. The book is based on a story Diane used to tell her children when they were little.
