The Latest Tesseract


Tesseracts 14
is the lastest volume in the on-going series of anthologies of fantastic literature written by new Canadian writers. The series was founded by Judith Merril, and this year’s anthology is edited by John Robert Colombo and Brett Alexander Savory, and the co-editors gave this volume the subtitle “Strange Canadian Stories”¬†for the reason that¬†these works of fiction and poetry are truly w-e-i-r-d. The publisher is Brian Hades of Edge Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing, the format is trade paperback, the size is 5.5″ x 8.5″, the ISBN is 978-1-894063-37-1, and the pagination is x+288+vi. See the Edge website for further particulars, but let me (JRC, as co-editor) say here and now that the collection opens and closes with super-superb stories by Tony Burgess and Jerome Stueart (that’s how he spells his name; the book is weird!). There are imaginative poems by David Clink, Michelle Barker, and Sandra Kasturi, not to mention “The Transformed Man,” a tour-de-force by Robert J. Sawyer. There is a lot to puzzle the mind and set teeth on edge in Tesseracts 14
