EditorWakeham, P. J., 1910-
PublisherP.J. Wakeham
Place of Publication[St. John's, NL]
DescriptionP.J. Wakeham (1910-1990) was one of Newfoundland's most prolific writers. In addition to his many other works he also edited the New-Land Magazine, a publication featuring Newfoundland-themed short stories, most of which he wrote himself. Having begun in 1962, publication ceased with his death, the final volume being issued posthumously by Wakeham's daughter Jean Wakeham Hall. The publication's Newfoundland focus was made explicit from Autumn 1968 on when "Newfoundland Stories" was emblazoned across every cover. The material ranges in style from historical adventure to ghost stories and the comedic. Notable from Autumn 1970 onwards are the recurring adventures of fictional former outport resident "Jarge of Crinkle Cove, " which was also added to the magazine's cover the following volume. (Jean Wakeham Hall, "Tribute, " vol. 50, inside cover; Allison C. Bates, "Wakeham, Pius Joseph, 1910-1990, " Encyclopedia of Newfoundland and Labrador, vol. 5, p. 496.)
