Kent Stetson, C. M., is a Governor General’s Literary Award Laureate, as well as a Member of the Order of Canada. Among other honours are the Canadian Author’s Association Award for Excellence and The Prince Edward Island Literary Award for Distinguished Contribution to the Literary Arts. The PEI born playwright, director and novelist developed as a writer in Halifax, Nova Scotia, before moving to Montreal in 1989, where he entered the profession full time.
His GG-winning tragedy in three acts for fifteen men, “The Harps of God,” a work which raised the bar for Canadian play-writing to a new level, is said to be the single best play ever written about Canada. (Montreal Gazette, 2005)
Kent recently published a new work of prose fiction, “The World Above the Sky.” Of the novel, former CNN producer/anchor, and critic for The Village Voice, Porter Anderson said: “One welcome, hard fact is that The World Above the Sky is Stetson’s debut as a novelist. Stetson… who’s no slouch in the dreaming department, may in fact remind some here of a latter-day J.R.R. Tolkien.”
“Kent Stetson remains an inspiration for writers and artistic leaders in Canada and internationally.”

Author’s Rights & Copyright Note
It takes 10,000 hours to master a craft. The same to excel in a profession. Between the two of us, we have accumulated decades of mastery of law enforcement and the arts. We share a commitment to justice and the betterment of humankind. To honesty and hard work. And a sense that we’re all in this together. We are all our brother’s and sister’s keepers.
Years of insight, experience and plain old-fashioned hard work bring you this novel. Writing is arduous and demanding. It is also exciting and, when well done, both entertaining and uplifting.
We hope you enjoy Meat Cove. We hope you will treat it like any other book. Buy yourself a copy. Maybe pass a printed PDF copy on to a friend or family member. As you would any other book you like and wish to share.
We also ask you to remember writing is how one of us makes his living. And the other still has extensive connections to law enforcement! ;)
So no hanky-panky (ie: unauthorized distribution beyond your purchase) with our copyright, SVP!
Enjoy Meat Cove. And let us know how you like our new digital approach to an old idea…serial publication!
