When you see a long running anthology series, it cannot just be riding the shirt tails of previous successes; the book market is just not that robust. For that reason alone, Tesseracts Twelve shows it is something worth exploring. With a focus on Canadian writers, it showcases the great talent to be found in that country and also gives these authors a rare opportunity for writing a longer piece. A wide range of styles and themes is presented here, making this is a smorgasbord of literary delights. From official release/information:
Product Description: First in the Tesseract Series in which all stories are Novella length! Cavemen and woolly mammoths invade the Yukon! Mythological creatures cause havoc in ancient feudal Japan! Women with power over love and death stalk the streets of Montreal! A modern Scheherazade seeks to understand love in a Toronto suffused with magic and fable! A small town in Alberta is rife with pagan rituals! Super-heroes tackle Korean politics, maniacal super-villains, and corporate downsizing! As the world faces environmental collapse, reality-TV adventurers battle giant beasts from the ocean depths!
Tesseracts Twelve features all-new exciting and imaginative work by: E.L. Chen, Randy McCharles, Derryl Murphy, David Nickle, Gord Sellar, Grace Seybold, and Michael Skeet & Jill Snider Lum.
With a foreword by Brett Alexander Savory, author of In and Down, one of Quill & Quire's Best Books of 2007, and editor of the Bram Stoker Award winning horror website ChiZine.
