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…
You might recognize Dave Strachan as the guy who helps you with your Arctic Cat snowmobile needs at Listers Motorsports (that is not him on the cover of the book there). I know Dave more as a science fiction writer and friend. I’m THRILLED to say that Dave made it into the Inhuman anthology put out by Absolute XPress, a Direct-to-Reader press owned by Hades Publications, which specializes in scifi, fantasy, horror e-books and paper-books.
The anthology is made up of flash fiction–stories under 1000 words–part of the Flash Fiction #4 Challenge that Absolute XPress issued earlier this year. The stories discuss what it means to be human from an inhuman POV. Some stories are all from that POV, and some have characters that are inhuman chatting about humanity. I was the guest editor who helped choose the stories, but I’m proud to say that the judging was blind and that his story was chosen by all three judges. I had no idea if we were going to end up with Dave’s story in the bunch. There were a lot of great entries and we couldn’t put everyone in–but collectively we ended up choosing great stories.
Thank you, everyone who submitted. I’m proud of the stories included in the anthology. You can order the anthology on their website, or through Amazon.com.
And, Dave…. way to go.
