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 and huge 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 reprinting the book!
The reprint of The Fifth Window has arrived, and orders have shipped! Thank you to everyone who placed a pre-order, and for your patience while we waited for books from the printer. Please look for your copies in the mail soon!
We are currently out of stock, but due to the on-going demand, we are reprinting again and are expecting to have more books in early May.
Please find further details about the book and the author, as well as ordering, information, here.
