During that time he founded the Creative Writing Program and the University of Windsor Review. Over the years, he has received many awards, including the University of Windsor Alumni Award for Distinguished Teaching and the City of Windsor's Mayor's Award for Literary Excellence. Dreaming of Lost America is his sixteenth collection of poems. He has also had five collections of short fiction published, a novella (Home in the Dark, 2000), a novel (The Orphan's Waltz, 2008), and a critical study of the film Laura. He edited a selection of Marshal McLuhan's literary criticism (The Interior Landscape, McGraw-Hill 1969). One of his stories was selected for Best American Short Stories in 1975. Four stories were selected for Best Canadian Stories (1979, 1987, 1991, and 1994). He is retired and continues to write, travel with his wife, and enjoy the company of his five children, their spouses and many grand-children.
