Summary (IBList user synopsis):

"Atlantica is a region of the imagination," writes Lesley Choyce in his foreword to the short story collection, "a literary nation onto itself... We cultivate our eccentricities and cherish the way we weave our lives into anecdote, narrative, legend and myth..."

Atlantica features stories by twenty Atlantic Canadian authors, some long-credited masters of their craft, others promising new voices on the Canadian scene. Characters created by Alistair MacLeod, Sheldon Currie, Donna Morrissey, Budge Wilson, and many others appear on the pages of this book and share their unique tales. Their stories celebrate both bizarre and everyday life experiences with humour, grief and compassion, while paying deep respect to the fleeting moments that sometimes change the course of our lives.
