A former journalist who taught at the School of Journalism at the University of Regina, Nick Russell moved to Victoria and re-published Morals and the Media, Second Edition (UBC Press, 2005 $39.95), an updated examination of ethics that includes discussion of media convergence, on-line journalism, media ownership and the new phenomenon of the "web log".

Russell has self-published Glorious Victorians: 150 Years/150 Houses - Celebrating Residential Architecture in BC's Capital (Friesen's / Sandhill / Old Goat Publishing $34.95 2011) to reflect changing architectural fashions that tell a story about the prosperity of British Columbia's capital city. What is Queen Anne style? Did a premier live here? Who were the great architects? What important buildings have been lost over the years? And what will tomorrow's heritage buildings look like? 9780987788900
