DC Books embodies a tradition of literary innovation, dissent against convention, and artistic facilitation that is second to none. These connections extend beyond title and purpose. Our founding editor is Louis Dudek, deeply respected as a poet, man of letters, and literary animator, who for many years, before his death in 2001, brought his talents and experience to bear upon the editing tasks at DC Books. Our editor in chief, Steve Luxton, has edited matrix magazine and founded and edited The Moosehead Review with Robert Allen. Luxton also edited Saturday Night at the Forum (1981), an anthology of Montreal short stories, Full Moon (1983) with Janice LaDuke, an anthology of poetry by Canadian women, and Morning and It’s Summer (1983), an illustrated memoir of childhood by Al Purdy. He himself is a writer of poetry and fiction.
