I recently sold a story to an anthology called Blood and Water.
Blood and Water will gather the stories of the new resource wars that will mark the next fifty years – stories of conflict and cooperation, of hope and despair – all told from a uniquely Canadian perspective. Conflicts with America over Canada’s resources, Canadian solutions to global problems or personal narratives of coping with change and conflict could all inspire your stories. Or you could surprise us!
Editor Hayden Trenholm is the Aurora and Sunburst Award nominated author of “The Steele Chronicles” trilogy and two-time winner of the Aurora Award for short fiction. He is also a produced playwright. In his other life, he has spent most of his career advising decision makers on critical issues around land and resources.
Blood and Water has a scheduled release date of August 10th at the When Words Collide Readercon in Calgary. Below is the Table of Contents, and I’m pleased to be sharing these pages with some really talented writers. Some you might know, and others are up and comers who I’m sure will be on bookshelves in the coming years.
