"Roadkill stuffed and presented as art, an OB/GYN appointment gone horribly wrong, and government spies with a weakness for salmon bagels and Timmy Ho’s. Tender, satirical, and occasionally absurd, Barb Howard’s new story collection Western Taxidermy is a perfect introduction to one of Western Canada’s most high-spirited literary voices.

In these sixteen stories, Howard effortlessly balances wry social commentary and prairie gothic, pairing humans and animals in clever and unexpected ways.

Praise for Western Taxidermy

"Bizarre, disturbing, sad, hilarious and haunting. Howard's stories stir the reader's imagination."
~ The Prairie Journal

"Not only would I recommend reading it, I would recommend re-reading it not long after."
~ Herizons

"Grab it for a satisfying, thoughtful tease on your palate before we tumble headlong into snow season."
~ Bess Lovec, Billings Gazette
