VCON Book Launch

What a wonderful, magical, personal way to connect with the authors of some of Canada’s most innovative and imaginative fiction!

Before a live audience, Canadian authors sit in an accessible, comfortable chair and share a passage from their new releases.

Steampunk-inspired Harry Houdini fiction to dystopian futures to magical forest fables to cthonic sagas were just a few of the many varied

tales orated at the Book Launch.

 

The much beloved Esser of the Gendler Race got some airtime as Virginia Carraway Stark read from her short story, “His Own Ticket”. This story is one of many GAF stories in Tales from Space Volume 1- one of four books published this year by StarkLight Press.

 

Here are some pictures of the Book Launch readers:

 

Here is Marty Chan, author of the Erich Weisz Chronicles, at the read, performing a Houdini-esque escape from a straightjacket:

An excellent evening of the best in this year’s Canadian speculative fiction- and some magic, to boot!
