Yes, congratulations to Brian. By the way, he has an article about the experience of writing the book in the latest Concordia alumni magazine:

I find the site a little odd to navigate but the article is on page 42.

Always good to see a fellow Concordia grad doing so well ;).

Thank you Patti, Margot and John. The book was something of a labour of love, so the recognition is especially appreciated. I was happy to write the piece for Concordia. 'Twas the influence of professor that encouraged me to take on the task all those years ago. A much-loved, much-missed man.
