Tesseracts Twenty!

Super-happy to have a story in Tesseracts Twenty: Compostela, edited by Spider Robinson and James Alan Gardner. This promises to be a wonderful addition to this all-Canadian series that’s been on-going for more than twenty years. It doesn’t come out for almost a year, but I hope to have lots of updates. Can’t wait to see the cover!

Campbell Michael Johnstone What Makes The Tesseracts Series Special: If you are just discovering The Tesseracts Series for the first time, or reacquainting yourself with this Canadian literary legacy, here are some key points to remember: The Tesseracts series is focused on speculative fiction: science fiction, fantasy and horror. The first Tesseracts anthology was edited by the late Judith Merril. Each year EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing chooses a team of editors – which keeps the collections fresh, new and ever changing – from among the best of Canada’s writers, publishers and critics. The editors then select innovative and futuristic short fiction and poetry from established and emerging voices of Canadian speculative fiction. Since the publication of the first volume in 1985, Canadian authors, editors, translators and special guests have contributed 563 short stories, poems, editorials and forwards to the series. Each volume of the series features established as well as emerging authors. Some of Canada’s best known fiction writers have been published within the pages of these volumes – including Margaret Atwood, Susan Swan, and Hugo and Nebula award winning authors William Gibson, Spider Robinson, and Robert J. Sawyer. The entire series includes Tesseracts One through Nineteen, plus Tesseracts Q, which features translations of works by some of Canada’s top francophone writers of science fiction and fantasy. The series has won the prestigious Canadian Aurora Award. For further information about the Tesseracts anthology, the editors or authors of Compostela please visit, or email Janice Shoults at
