The Chiaroscuro Reading Series is an award-winning Canadian speculative fiction series taking place in Toronto, Ottawa, Winnipeg, and Vancouver.
Chris Allinotte lives and in Winnipeg with his wife and two sons. He holds a B.A. from McMaster University, and a Diploma in Acting from Ryerson. In 2007, Chris’ short story, “The Dirt on Ronnie Wilkins,” won the Toronto Star National Short Story competition. In 2012, Chris published his collected short stories in the book Gathering Darkness. He also edited four volumes of the Days of Madness psychological horror anthology. Follow Chris on Twitter
“Allinotte’s stories, collected in anthology form, are reminiscent of the sort that populated the golden age of science fiction and horror magazines. One can picture a wide eyed little boy reading these tales under the covers of his bed with a flashlight circa 1948.” - Ryan St. Onge, “Reading in Taiwan”
Gerald Brandt’s short story “Storm” appeared in the 2013 Prix Aurora Award-winning anthology Blood & Water. He is the author of the science fiction novels The Courier and The Operative, both of which are part of Gerald’s San Angeles series published by DAW. By day, he’s an IT professional and coding guru. In his limited spare time, he enjoys riding his motorcycle, rockclimbing, camping, and spending time with his family. He lives in Canada with his wife Marnie and his two sons Jared and Ryan. He can be found online and on Twitter.
Scarlett Kol grew up in Northern Manitoba reading books and writing about creatures that make you want to sleep with the lights on. As an adult she’s still a little afraid of the dark. Her debut novel, a YA paranormal about demons, witches and the lies we tell the people we love, is coming in early 2017 from Rebelight Publishing. Scarlett now lives just outside Winnipeg with her husband and two boys, but if you need to find her she’s likely freezing at the hockey rink. Follow her online or Twitter.
