Garry Thomas Morse

Garry Thomas Morse has published both fiction and poetry, notably the Governor-General’s Award poetry finalist Discovery Passages, an excavation of myth, history, and the injustice of the potlatch ban against his Kwakwaka’wakw First Nations ancestors. Morse is also responsible for The Chaos! Quincunx, a genre-busting speculative fiction series in three books that has received two nominations for the ReLit Award. In his latest poetry title, Prairie Harbour (Talonbooks), Morse traces multiple lines of his mixed ancestry, including the nomadic Wakashan speakers who were later to form various West Coast First Nations, and Jedidiah Morse, the “father of American geography.” Morse currently resides in Winnipeg.
