Pass Me By is queer, rural Canadian, romantic tragedy. A five book series following Ed, a reserved man recently diagnosed with dementia, living in a small northern Canadian town. As Ed's memory declines he loses touch with the present and spends more time in a past he chose to forget, touring with a glam rock band across Canada in the early 1970s. In this first book in the series, Gone Fishin' we are introduced to Ed as a retired man spending his time fishing and ordering the same dishes at the local diner with his close friend Rory. Rocked by a recent dementia diagnosis, Ed attempts to keep a semblance of a normal life. As his health worsens and daily routines become increasingly difficult, his panic begins to grow. Forgetting what he orders every day at the diner, disoriented by a grocery list, lost in familiar spaces, Ed's memories become a faded photograph of a past with the potential to disappear forever.

Kyle Simmers is a Calgary based, Canadian artist and illustrator born and raised in a special kind of Nowhere known as central Alberta. As a freelance illustrator, Kyle has worked on everything from theatrical productions and product design to editorial illustration and large-scale mural projects. Their work explores identity and relationships in the context of gender, queerness, and subjectivity. Ryan Danny Owen is a Canadian visual artist, writer, and queer historian currently living and working in Calgary, Alberta. His work responds to questions of identity, love, loss, desire, and emotion. Acting as love letter and protest sign, he examines his body existing in the context of queer genealogy and challenges the concept of coming after.
