Canadian Report - October 2001
I'm sure it's a beautiful time to be in Canada, peak foliage, and all. However,
on the SF scene, the only news to report is the winner of the first Sunburst
Award - Sean Stewart for Galveston (Ace/Berkley Publishing) who took
home the bronze medallion and the $1,000 C prize. The shortlist included: Before
Wings by Beth Goobie (Orca Books) Midnight Robber by Nalo Hopkinson
(Warner Aspect) The Black Chalice by Marie Jakober (Edge SF & F
Publishing) Lord of Emperors by Guy Gavriel Kay (Viking/Penguin Books
Canada) and Monkey Beach by Eden Robinson (Alfred A. Knopf Canada) For

Below the 49th: SF books by Canadian authors that are available in Canada but published by US houses.
A Paradigm of Earth by Candas Jane Dorsey (hardcover) Tor /
A word of thanks to Don Bassie and the Made In Canada website who has quickly become a real resource, both through his site (which is encyclopedic) and in person.
The good news is next month there are quite a few books I'm looking forward to telling you about.
As always, if you have a publishing tidbit for me from the Great White North, please share it by emailing email@example.com
