Imaginarium 3 coverThe Table of Contents for the latest Imaginarium anthology (Imaginarium 3) from ChiZine Publications has just been announced. And I am delighted to be included with my micro-fable “A Tall Girl”.

Imaginarium is an annual “Best of” reprint anthology featuring the Best Canadian Speculative Writing published in the preceding year. Check out some of the phenomenal company I am keeping in the list below.

My own selection, “A Tall Girl” was originally published in Issue 126 of The New Quarterly. 

What is speculative fiction and poetry, you ask? It is a literary genre that can encompass science fiction, fantasy, horror, magical realism, fabulism, futurism, the supernatural, alternate histories, all the various punks (steampunk, cyberpunk, etc.)  and other reality-bending genres. 

Imaginarium 3 (2014) is edited by Sandra Kasturi and Helen Marshall. It goes on sale November 4, 2014.
