Editor/writer Conan Tobias hosts a conversation with Sarah Gilbert and Michelle Syba about short stories and community at the end of the world.

Our Lady of Mile End is a neighbourhood of stories that unfold against a backdrop of renoviction threats and walking tours in a community that has turned into a destination. This is an era of uncertainty, and sometimes menace, where the lack of privacy evokes village life. Yet when everything seems precarious, a neighbour who is paying attention may make all the difference, reminding us that connection is still possible.

End Times is an astounding debut collection of stories about evangelical culture, ideological polarization, and the messiness and mysteries of humanity. At a time when the end feels nigh for many, End Times brings together an expansive cast of the devout and the dissenting, the elderly and the young, immigrants, elites, the burned-out, and the lonely, exploring our hidden anxieties and longings.
