I’m excited to share some of my favourite Canadian speculative fiction novels at 49th Shelf – and they’re doing a giveaway of The Quiet is Loud too!
Here’s an excerpt:
As a writer, I’m relatively new to speculative fiction. But as a reader and a lightly superstitious human, I can’t deny the pull of the unusual, the not-quite-real. I love books featuring elements that seem unimaginable, but are portrayed so lucidly that after I finish reading I have to re-orient myself back into our world.
These are some of my favourite Canadian books featuring speculative elements. Whether it’s fantasy, sci-fi, post-apocalyptic, dystopian, or generally not-quite-real, Canadian speculative fiction is vast and thrilling.
