Time for another update on all the amazing things Dundurn authors have been getting up to! 

Looking for a 'great' gift? Outdoor Canada magazine suggests The Great Canadian Bucket List by Robin Esrock in their 'Seven Gift Ideas for Outdoor Families' feature. Perfect for anyone looking for their next adventure! 

The Great Escape by Ted Barris was featured on the Maclean’s magazine Non-Fiction Bestseller List, #9 for the week of Nov 25, 2013.

The Winnipeg Free Pres included Lost Beneath the Ice by Andrew Cohen and Parks Canada in their holiday treats roundup, saying that this beautiful book "belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in Arctic history and exploration."

Corpse Flower by Gloria Ferris was reviewed on Ivereadthis.com, who raved that: "similar to reader’s attachment to Joanne Kilbourn of Gail Bowen’s famous series, Bliss is someone that I would look forward to reading more about for many future books to come. She’s got a foul mouth and a spunky attitude, but she’s an extremely hard worker and her disdain for her ‘weasel’ of an ex-husband is absolutely hilarious."

The Ottawa Citizen sought to answer the question 'Who was John Buchan?' with an author feature of William Galbraith, author of John Buchan this week.  

Festival Man by Geoff Berner was featured in the Vancouver Courier this week, as well as being reviewed in Penguin Eggs Magazine, which pointed out that "[Berner has] created a hilarious book in which laughter and outrage mix in equal parts to paint a portrait of mayhem in the Canadian folk world that the reader won’t soon forget. His prose is both tight and brilliantly evocative…it’s a wicked bullseye of a book."

And finally, Willowdale by Scott Kennedy was featured Mike Filey’s column in the Toronto Sun, which called the book "a great read for any Torontonian interested in the history of his or her city. And perfect for former Torontonians as well."

Stay warm out there, book worms.
