Summary

Twelve all-new stories of the fantastic, the imaginative, and the weird are collected in this book of daring and imaginative tales of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and surrealism. Montreal's established authors and new voices alike serve up gruesomely disturbing tales, bizarre love stories, gender-bending police investigations, and alien cities literally dropped in the middle of an American desert. The authors include Yves Meynard, author ofThe Book of Knights; Glenn Grant, coeditor ofNorthern Stars and Northern Suns; Mark Shainblum, cocreator ofAnglomanandNorthguard; Melissa Yuan-Innes, a Writers of the Future contest winner; Mark Paterson, a leading voice in the Montreal spoken-word scene; Maxianne Berger, author ofHow We Negotiate; Martin Last, cofounder of New York's legendary Science Fiction Shop; Shane Simmons, creator of Longshot Comics; and Dora Knez, author ofFive Forbidden Things. Other contributors include Linda Dydyk, Elise Moser, and Christos Tsirbas.
