I just downloaded the voter package for the 2017 Aurora Awards, which means I’ve got lots of reading to do before September. If you are a member of the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association (CSFFA), you should get cracking on that. If nothing else, it means a bunch of free new books that you don’t have to return to the library.
Also, and I’m excited for this, the Enigma Front: Burnt anthology, which contains one of my stories, was nominated. The Auroras are a nation-wide award. Woohoo!
Also, for all you Calgarian readers out there, a whole bunch of local authors were nominated for their work. We hardly had any representation last year, so this is big. Even if you’re not a CSFFA member, the books are well worth reading. Check out the list.
This has been out for a bit, actually. I wanted to wait until the other authors had made a post, so that mine might act as a signal booster rather than white noise. For anyone who doesn’t already know, I have a story in this anthology, called “The Red Bulb” involving ghosts, activism, canned food, photography and doom.
They’re $12.99 right now. I have six copies, (let me know if you want one) there will be copies available at the When Words Collide festival this weekend and I think also at The Sentry Box. It seems to be sold out on Amazon.ca right now (huzzah!) but check back soon. It is definitely available on Amazon.com, however.
