In the June Q&Q

The June issue of Q&Q is out now, and contains our first publishing salary survey since 2005. Check it out to see where exactly you sit on the money – and happiness – continuum. Also in June: our BookExpo Canada 2008 preview; a look at competing neighbourhood bookstores; and a closeup on debut author Pasha Malla. And watch for reviews of Claudia Dey’s Stunt; Anita Stewart’s Canada; Peter Christie’s The Curse of Akkad; and the first wave of Penguin Canada’s Extraordinary Lives series. The full contents appear after the fold.
