I am pleased to say that Silvia Moreno-Garcia has purchased my novelette “Snow Angels” for her antho FRACTURED: TALES OF THE CANADIAN POST-APOCALYPSE. The full ToC is at the link: it will have stories by Claude LaLumiere, Jean-Louis Trudel, and twenty-some other Canadian writers.
Silvia will be here in March, at the Toronto SpecFic Colloquium, along with Christopher Golden and the ever-awesome Peter Watts.
I’m happy to announce that S.M. Stirling has purchased a story by me, “Rate of Exchange,” for his upcoming Emberverse anthology, THE CHANGE. The story is set in Northern Alberta, in the area where I grew up, and features Huon Liu, a young Scout, and some silly jokes about Alberta’s various subcultures.
In a peculiar coincidence, Kelly and I were on College Street yesterday and found a Toronto Public Library copy of Lord of Mountains: A Novel of the Change, one of the novels from that series. It had almost certainly fallen out of someone’s bag. It’s a little battered, but I’ll take it back to TPL next week.
I am just home from Grandma Joan’s funeral and am quite behind on everything, especially e-mail. I’ll be back on track by Monday at the latest; if you wrote me, I’ll get to you, and in the meantime I apologize for the delay.
In the meantime, thank you all very much for the notes, tweets and other kind thoughts. It was very lovely of you, and meant a lot to me.
A few of you already know this, but now I’m telling the world. Kelly has a job offer in beautiful, scenic Toronto and we are relocating there this spring.
More info to come! In the meantime, if we know you and you’re local, we’re getting rid of a lot of stuff, including books and our gorgeous (though cat-scratched) chaise lounge. (Also, actually, the apartment.) Let me know if you might want stuff.
The cats already know something is up, and are freaking out accordingly.
I will be at FanExpo Vancouver this weekend, signing books and meeting fans. Including some of you, perhaps? I hope so.
Some of the other writers who will be in Authors Alley include my good friend DD Barant, author of the thoroughly awesome urban fantasy thrillers, The Bloodhound Files, Hiromi Goto, whose Half World won the Sunburst Award in the youth category in 2010, the same year Indigo Springs received the Sunburst for adult fiction–we’re like Sunburst Twins! Eileen Kerneghan and Silvia Moreno-Garcia will be there too.
And also there will be a few other people you might, possibly, have heard of: James Marsters, Juliet Landau, Amanda Tapping, and Sean Astin, for example, along with many others including what looks like the entire cast of Continuum.
