    Summary

    The Halifax Seaport Farmer’s Market is a haven of locally-produced food and goods, and as such, it’s highly competitive among vendors to reserve a stall inside. Sidney likes the idea of being in among the bustle but doesn’t much like the bother; there’s too many people who want to tell him exactly how he has to run his stand if he wants in. Instead, he squats outside the Market once a week, just him and his table and his truck and his wares.

     

     

     

    Sidney sells strawberries. Geno wants something sweet.

    Summary

    After he retires, Sid retreats to the Canadian wilderness and no one in the public hears from him for two years. But it's not like anyone forgets about him. Especially not Geno, who still keeps in touch by phone and e-mail, though he longs for more.

    Geno is facing the prospect of life without the NHL when Sid's autobiography comes out. Suddenly everyone wants a comment. Geno didn't even know Sid was writing an autobiography.

    But he knows now, and he knows--there’s no way to read Sid’s book except as a love letter to Geno, and even if he only meant it as a hockey love letter, it still is. Only Sid won't answer his calls.

    Geno resolves to ask him about it in person. One problem: he has to find him first.

    Summary

    Forbes family reunions are an Event, capitalised and all.

    Sidney’s dying, and it’s mostly because his great aunt Patricia won’t stop asking when he’s going to bring a nice girl to meet them, while everyone within earshot sniggers into their drinks. She’s somehow the only one who doesn’t know Sidney’s bisexual, and that it could very well be a not-so-nice boy he brings home one day.

    So he’s looking around frantically for an excuse to A) assert his sexuality to his slightly homophobic great aunt and B) escape, when he spots it in the form of a tall, dark and handsome stranger walking into the backyard with his second cousin Keith.

    Summary

    Home was his family, home was the smell of steel, home was Russian food and tongue, of wide ice and harsh winters, hot summers. Home was a vast continent that remained still like dust mites in a locked attic.

    Russia was home.
