Two Sales to Analog

Susan Forest has recently sold two short stories to Analog Science Fiction and Fact. “Turning It Off” is a humourous short story that looks at the implications of wearing a personal shield to protect oneself from minor cuts and scrapes–with interesting consequences when the device is turned off. “The Most Invasive Species” is a novelette that explores the potentially tragic consequences of cultural interference when two sentient species meet. Watch for them in upcoming issues of Analog!

H.A. Hargreaves Work to be Published by Five Rivers

H.A. Hargreaves is one of Canada’s remarkable, one might even say legendary, speculative fiction writers. He is a retired professor of English, formerly at the University of Alberta (Edmonton), and was twice nominated (1982 and 1983) for the Lifetime Contributions category in the Prix Auroras. His collection of short stories, North by 2000, in its time received wide critical acclaim from both peers and periodicals.

Today Five Rivers is pleased to announce the rebirth of that remarkable collection of short stories by Hargreaves. This new edition, entitled North by 2000+, will feature not only all the quintessentially Canadian stories of the first edition, but five additional published short works, along with a foreword from the author, and an introduction by Dr. Robert Runte.

Cover design has been awarded to Jeff Minkevics.

North by 2000+ is scheduled for release by Five Rivers early in 2012, and will be available in print and digital formats worldwide.
