ChiZine Publications is gearing up to release the signed limited edition hardcover of Imaginarium 2012: The Best Canadian Speculative Writing, edited by Sandra Kasturi and Halli Villegas.
Description: Canadian speculative fiction has been increasingly recognized internationally for the calibre of its authors and their insight into the nature of social and cultural identities, the implications of new technologies, and the relationship between humankind and its environments.
At their best, these pieces disrupt habits and overcome barriers of cultural perception to make the familiar strange through the use of speculative elements such as magic and technology. They provide glimpses of alternate realities and possible futures and pasts that provoke an ethical, social, political, environmental, and biological inquiry into what it means to be human.
Confirmed authors include Kelley Armstrong, Cory Doctorow, Steven Erikson, Gemma Files, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, David Nickle, Geoff Ryman, Peter Watts, Rio Youers, with more to come!
