Alain C. Dexter is a professor of poetry at Brougham College and best-selling author of the award-winning Gizzard’s Luck & Other Organic Festivities, a collection of short stories; the poetry collection, Poems from the Soles of his Feet; and two other collections of verse.
He is also a heteronym of the writer, Elaine Stirling. A concept introduced by the Portuguese writer and poet, Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935), who collaborated with more than seventy during his lifetime, a heteronym differs from a pseudonym in that the personage enjoys his/her own identity, writing and life styles.
Dexter enjoys imported beer, hiking in the great Canadian north woods, and hobnobbing with the rich and famous. He appears as himself in Stirling’s novella of horror and good medicine, Dead Edit Redo, and lives on the north shore of Lake Superior.
Alain’s collection, Dead Edit Redo: A Circularity of Glosas, will be published by Greyhart Press early in 2013. Click here for more information
