He has published a chapbook, Earth Aches, his seventh collection of poems, and a second collection of stories, Angels Watch Do Keep (Oberon Press, 1997). As literary executor of the Alden Nowlan Estate, he has edited a selected poems and a selection in two parts of newspaper columns, one of which appeared in 1996 under the title White Madness from Oberon Press. His bio-critical essay “Various Persons Named Alden Nowlan” appears as the introduction to the archival catalogue, The Alden Nowlan Papers, published by the University of Calgary.
