Tesseracts, the famed anthology series of Canadian speculative fiction, returns with Tesseracts Thirteen: Chilling Tales from the Great White North. Where last year's anthology focused on novella-length SF and fantasy, this year's collection is solid Canuck horror.
An advanced reading copy arrived in the mail today and so far I'm really impressed. Edited by Nancy Kilpatrick and David Morrel, the collection includes a large number of original stories by authors such as Kelley Armstrong, Alison Baird, Daniel Sernine, and many more. The first story I read is an amazing tale: "Lost in a Field of Paper Flowers" by Gord Rollo. This story will likely make many of the year's best lists, and left me wanting to keep reading the book.
Tesseracts Thirteen hits bookstores in the middle of September. Until then, here's my review of last year's edition.
