Welcome to Planetalyx!

3891536336_0d52c64a4c.jpgThank you for visiting the A.M. Dellamonica web page. Here you can find info about me, my (so far) seven published novels, and my short fiction, poems and even my 2021 foray into playwriting.

I moved to Toronto in 2013, after twenty-two years in Vancouver, B.C. My first novel, Indigo Springs, won the Sunburst Award for Canadian Literature of the Fantastic. The sequel, Blue Magic, was released in 2012. I am married to fellow science fiction author Kelly Robson and live a not very double life as a hopepunk writer, L.X. Beckett, author of Gamechanger and its 2021 sequel Dealbreaker.

I am a proud client of Caitlin Blasdell at Liza Dawson Associates Literary Agency.

I am passionate about environmentalism, food and drink, and art in every form. I dabble in several: photography, choral music, theater, dance, cooking and crafts. Desire fascinates me, and I often write about the cost of love.

On this page you’ll find publication announcements, articles, and information on my latest UCLA Extension Writers’ Program writing classes and other creative writing offerings… and a lot of essays on writing. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, drop me a line. I’m happy to help. Here are some shortcuts.

About Alyx Dellamonica

After twenty-two years in Vancouver, B.C., I've recently moved to Toronto Ontario, where I make my living writing science fiction and fantasy; I also review books and teach writing online at UCLA. I'm a legally married lesbian, a coffee snob, and I wake up at an appallingly early hour.

    Hi, Alyx–are you appearing at, or attending any upcoming conferences this summer? Perhaps Surrey, or Cancom?


    • I definitely hope to be invited to SiWC again some year, but I don’t think it will happen in 2013. DD Barant will be there, though and he is great!!

      My next appearance will be in my (new) hometown, at the Toronto FanExpo.

  2. it was a lovely afternoon to meet both of you.

    Hey, I am the Frogbox delivery man whom you gave a bundle of your books before leaving Vancouver. Me and my girlfriend Loved Indigo springs and we ran out and bought the sequel and quickly devoured it also. Thank you for all the books, they are much loved at mt work. but mostly thank you for introducing me to your work.

    • Jake,

      I am so glad you enjoyed all the books, though of course I am especially pleased to hear you loved mine. (Thank your girlfriend for me too!)

      My next is out in June – it’ll be called CHILD OF A HIDDEN SEA.
