Calling Fans of Speculative Fiction

Are you a fan of speculative fiction? Ever wondered what it is like inside the Boathouse in Victoria Park? On July 27th there will be an evening of readings by award-winning speculative fiction authors, and live music, at the Boathouse. Featured authors include the English department’s own Dr. Sarah Tolmie, reading from her new novella collection Two Travelers and English alumna Marcy Italiano (BA 1996; bio below).

Entrance is free; the Boathouse has very kindly made available space for local speculative fiction authors to display and sell their books.

A bit about the featured authors:

Suzanne Church’s award-winning fiction has appeared in Clarkesworld, Cicada, On Spec, and her 2014 collection Elements. Soul Larcenist, book one in the Dagger of Sacrados trilogy, is the fourth Hellmaw book published by The Ed Greenwood Group.

Alyx Dellamonica’s first novel, Indigo Springs, won the Sunburst Award for Canadian Literature of the Fantastic. Her fourth, A Daughter of No Nation, is the sequel of Lambda Award finalist Child of a Hidden Sea.

Marcy Italiano is a writer and musician from Waterloo. She is the author of Pain Machine, Spirits and Death in Niagara, and Katrina and the Frenchman: A Journal from the Street.

Kelly Robson’s stories have appeared in Clarkesworld,, Asimov’s Science Fiction, and in the anthologies New Canadian Noir, In the Shadow of the Towers, and License Expired. Her novella “Waters of Versailles” was nominated for a 2015 Nebula Award.
