Bundoran Press Celebrates Canada's 150th birthday by
(Bundoran Press 18 October 2016 / ) - In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, Bundoran Press Publishing House will publish an anthology of short science fiction next year, entitled 49th Parallels: Alternative Canadian Histories and Futures. Stories will be sought from across Canada and around the world exploring what might have been – or what might yet be. The anthology will be edited by two-time Aurora winning editor, Hayden Trenholm.
"In 1904, Prime Minister Wilfred Laurier said 'The 20th Century will be the Century of Canada'" said Trenholm, "and while it didn't quite work out that way, it is easy to imagine how it could have or how the next century still might be. I look forward to seeing how both Canadian and non-Canadian writers explore this question."
Guidelines and submission dates will shortly be posted on the Bundoran Press website (http://www.bundoranpress.com/pages/submissions/). The anthology will be funded through an Indiegogo campaign and payment rates will be established after the campaign is complete. (Source: Bundoran Press)
