Thanks everyone for coming out and being a part of our signing at Mac’s Fireweed! Two anthologies I’m a part of: Tesseracts 14 and Inhuman, and Dave Strachan, who has the lead story in Inhuman, was signing too! The Fantasy/Science Fiction community in Whitehorse is doing great! More and more of our group are stretching their talents and skills, and turning out great stories and sending them off to publishers! So happy that this is happening in Whitehorse! The Yukon is building a presence in Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy. Oh YEAH!
Tesseracts 14 and Inhuman are both published by Hades Publications and Edge Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing (for Inhuman, through their imprint Absolute XPress).
Here’s photos of us at Mac’s Fireweed, Saturday March 12. See if you can recognize all the campadres who helped make it a great event…
Imagine this: what would the future of vampires look like? How would they evolve? 24 Canadian writers thought about this and came up with their ideas. Evolve: Vampire Stories of the New Undead is an all Canadian anthology–23 stories, one poem. It’ll be launched at the World Horror Convention in Brighton England in March.
Yep, I have a story in there, “How Magnificent is the Universal Donor.” In my story, vampires have finally been pulled into positions of power in the medical field. They save the world by stepping in to keep a terrible blood disease at bay, and they continue to keep the world safe. But it’s not a perfect situation…some sacrifices occasionally have to be made for the good of the World. They’re just not telling anyone. Wouldn’t want to stain their new reputations as saviours.
I’m thrilled to be a part of the collection.
The collection is available for pre-order now. A limited number of the anthologies have been packed into little wooden coffins and you can pre-purchase the coffin-encased anthology at this site. You can also order the anthology by itself too, which will be available in March. Can’t wait to be in England pushing these little coffins on our table—it’ll be an awesome visual. As if we’ve made little gnome coffins.
While I’m not normally a horror writer, I just played with the idea of getting to evolve vampires. That was fun! Hope you enjoy it.
Evolve is published by Edge Books, Brian Hades Publisher, and edited by Nancy Kilpatrick.
