The Fifth Window by Russell Thornton

How many poetry books published in Saskatchewan can claim to have gone viral?
We have been pretty surprised by the sudden interest in a fairly old book! The Fifth Window by Russell Thornton, published in a small print run back in 2000, was recently the subject of a viral TikTok and now thousands of people around the globe have been looking for it. With the renewed interest we are looking into reprinting the book! With a sufficient level of pre-orders we will be able to proceed.
