bpNICHOL (1948-1988) was one of Canada's foremost writers. Not only was he active in the areas of poetry and fiction, but he was also known for his work in the areas of comics, "pataphysical essays," text-sound composition and children's books. His major life's work The Martyrology was an attempt to integrate all facets of his artistic life into one diverse and polyphonic composition. The author of over eighteen books of poetry, Nichol was a publisher himself, under the imprints of Ganglia and Gronk; was an editor at Coach House Press and Underwhich Editions; and was the winner of the Governor General's Award for Poetry in 1970. His work has appeared in TCR #3, 5, 8/9 (including an interview), #13, 27, 31 and 45.
