Brian Chan's poetry goes beyond everyday appearance to the inner space where the consciousness "begins to question the power of space it has fictioned". In staring into the abyss over which such fictions are spun, Fabula Rasa challenges all comfortable and solid assumptions. Thus, those poems which affirm the power of love or celebrate those moments 'brimming with light', seem both more powerful and more movingly vulnerable in their act of affirmation. Chan's poetry requires close attention but has a pellucid quality: "Plumbing my darkest heart, I shape the glass/ of plain mind in which you may taste your own".

Brian Chan grew up in Guyana. He is an accomplished musician and painter, and now lives in Edmonton, Canada.
