This is a seriously solid collection of speculative fiction Ignoring the part where three of the 5 star reviews are from authors featured in this collection, and the cover which is just so awful, and that it could have used at least one once over to correct some typos, this is a really really good collection First, I love reading stuff by Canadians And this anthology includes stories by writers from every province and territory, which is extra Canadian This is not classic sci fire, there s spac [...]
Here is another compendium of weird stories from north of the border, in Canada.A new mother can t leave her baby alone for a second, out of fear that The Wall will devour the child It s a creature that creeps along walls, looking like a shadow, and with very sharp teeth On the other side of The Wall is a land of torment straight from Hell Another story looks at the difference between people who are spiritual without believing in a specific religion, and those who are absolutely sure of the infa [...]
It is very exciting to see one of the prestigious Tesseracts books sharing a name with this website I was quite honoured to see that they had chosen a name that matched the name I created for my website Tesseracts has been a Canadian SF institution since Judith Merril edited the first collection in 1985, recognising that there was a need for a Canadian collection of SF and that there was something distinct about Canadian spec fic that could only come out by bringing works of Canadian SF together [...]
I have to admit it that I buyed this Anthology for a Romanian writer story, Secret Recipes by Costi Gurgu It s about a whole new world, kind of a dark fantasy based on original and amazing recipes, with a whole system of life and ideeas I knew the story from the Romanian language but nevertheless I found it very good in english, too I number the days that his main book for this story will see the light in English language, too.But in fact it wasn t the only story that I liked from this volume, b [...]
This was not good.I d heard a lot of good things about this anthology series, so I had high expectations going in Perhaps I was just setting myself up for disappointment.The vast majority of the stories here had good things going for them, but needed significantly work before they were ready to show themselves in public Most of the poetry needed even work A small handful of pieces by Mark Leslie, Lisa Poh, Catherine Austin, Elise Moser I can recommend.There was also a small handful that simply [...]
A fascinating range of stories Special mention must go to Graffiti Borealis by Lisa Poh.
