Gambler's Fallacy follows on the success of Judith Cowan's 1997 story collection, More Than Life Itself, which was shortlisted for the Québec Writers' Federation First Book Award. The seven stories in Gambler's Fallacy extend her range and power.

Judith Cowan lives in Trois-Rivières and these stories are set there -- offering us a view of Québec both strange and intimate, visionary and comic, an insider's view. The society she describes she catches in loving detail. Crammed with verbal felicities, electric with incident, this collection will delight those who enjoyed her first book and will enchant those who are encountering her work for the first time.
