“Bear Season” slated for release next spring (pre-order and get our latest issue too)!

The Conium Review is continuing to expand its catalogue.  Bear Season, by Bernie Hafeli will be released in late February, 2013 in association with our journal.

For a limited time, when you pre-order Bear Season, you’ll receive a free copy of The Conium Review‘s upcoming “Spring 2013” issue.

Bernie Hafeli’s Bear Season follows the journey of an eleven year-old boy and his rough-hewn uncle, both of whom embark on parallel quests for self-discovery.  The coming-of-age story juxtaposes against the uncle’s historical narrative—reflecting on his time in the Polish military during World War II, stationed alongside the legendary soldier bear, Wojtek.

The author, Bernie Hafeli, holds an MFA from the University of San Francisco, and his works have appeared in The Berkeley Fiction Review, 34th Parallel, The Rejected Quarterly, and elsewhere.
