Remembering Marvin Bell

"I often asked famous writers for addresses with the hope of obtaining work for The Fiddlehead; almost no one ever responded to my emails later, but Marvin replied with genuine enthusiasm, and so began a longtime relationship with the magazine."

Retired Editor Ross Leckie remembers Marvin Bell.
