Hi all –
I got a lovely surprise today when I opened my e-mail and discovered that the Easter Bunny brought a message from Holly Phillips and Cory Doctorow informing me that my story CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS has been accepted for inclusion in TESSERACTS 11. The contract is in the mail!
CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS is a story about corporate nations, the Olympics, genetic modification, and how dreams have a way of not turning out the way you expect.
The Tesseracts series of books began in 1985 (the first volume was edited by Judith Merril) as a showcase for Canadian SF. Now published by EDGE Books of Calgary, each volume is edited by a rotating group of notables in the Canadian SF scene. This year’s editors are Holly Phillips and Cory Doctorow, and past editors have included Robert J. Sawyer, Nalo Hopkinson, Robert Charles Wilson, Phyllis Gotlieb, Geoff Ryman, and Edo Van Belkom.
This will be the eleventh volume in the series (plus one volume–Tesseracts Q–of translations of stories by Québécois authors) and according to the EDGE Books website, the collection is due out in November 2007. It will be my third publication this year (and third publication ever, coincidentally 🙂
