Aurora Nomination!

Posted on Updated on

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.

Enigma Front: Burnt is out and catching fire!

“Caution: Don’t burn your fingers turning the pages of this action-packed volume! From elemental wizardry gone wickedly wrong to devilish deeds and futures up in flames, these twenty one stories set the pages ablaze exploring the myriad ways of getting singed, fried and outright incinerated. Read stories by established, award-winning authors, as well as newly ignited lights in the creative universe. Flames, acid, radiation, steam, broken hearts and broken deals… NOW, EVERYTHING BURNS!”


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 right now (huzzah!) but check back soon. It is definitely available on, however.

Also, there are still copies of last year’s Enigma Front. Those too will be at WWC and at and .com
