W. J. Keith, The Antigonish Review
In Hood Canadian literature possesses a major figure who needs to be read and appreciated at home and abroad.

Book Description
After All! contains the last of Hugh Hood's short stories, seventeen in all, written between September 1991 and December 1994. It was his practice to intersperse publication of short stories, essays, or other materials between the appearance of the individual novels in his ambitious series The New Age / Le nouveau siecle, which appeared at two- or three-year intervals between 1975 and 2000. This collection should have been published in 1996 or 1998, but because of failing health in the later 1990s, he devoted all his energies to the completion of the New Age series, and thus never got around to presenting...

From Publishers Weekly
Light and entertaining, if occasionally cloying, this debut novel presents an account of Maid Marian, the legendary romantic interest of Robin Hood. An orphaned heiress, Lady Marian Fitzwater struggles against scheming, duplicitous relatives for the right to her own lands. At age five she is married to Hugh of Sencaster, who dies suddenly and under dubious circumstances, when she is 17 and before the marriage is consummated. As an orphan, Marian is a ward of the king, England's beloved Richard the Lionheart. But both Richard's powerful mother, Queen Eleanor, and the mother of Marian's dead husband, Lady Pernelle, want her hastily remarried so that her lands and fortune may be seized. Marian decides to enlist the help of Robin Hood and his band of populist outlaws to intercept correspondence and see what plans are...

Book Description
The year is 1908, and Mary-Beth Sleaford is a five-year-old girl living in the countryside just north of Toronto. She etches an angel into a tower that her father, Professor John Sleaford, is building, one of many he will erect over the next eighteen years. Eventually Mary-Beth and her family move west to Saskatchewan, but one day, as an adult, she returns to the ruin of that first tower and discovers that her angel is almost as bright as the day she carved it with a piece of brick. Hood's heroine, the artist Mary-Beth Sleaford, is a true representative of her age. She embodies the English-Canadian character -reticent and caught between American exuberance and British reserve. The three men in her life are also facets of the greater Canadian psyche. Her father is an eccentric inventor imbued with the spirit of...
