For those of you in the GTA, there’s a great upcoming series of SF&F lectures and readings sponsored by the Toronto Public Library and (gasp!) the Canada Council.
The series, Foresight: Speculative Fiction in Canada, starts next Monday at the Lillian Smith Library (College & Spadina). Notables include Kelley Armstrong, Guy Gavriel Kay, Nalo Hopkinson, and two of my editors Cory Doctorow and Julie E. Czerneda amongst many, many others.
You can see the whole list of events here.
It all kicks off with a panel discussion with Karl Schroeder, James Alan Gardner and Peter Watts on the pursuit of foresight in Canadian science fiction. Not to be missed!
