Description

As proud Winnipeggers, the members of Off the Wall writers group decided to set their stories in their hometown. Some of the stories could be considered dystopian or Post-Apocalyptic, with end-of-the-world scenarios. Some are built around alternate histories. In every story, though, they asked themselves, "What if..." - What if Louis Riel was never considered a traitor but a hero? What if Lake Agassiz was refilled by a melting northern icecap or what if the land dried up completely, becoming a desert? What if terrorists unleashed deadly diseases from the Virology lab? These are only a few of the Speculative Fiction ideas explored in this volume. Hope you enjoy the tour through their visions of Winnipeg, Manitoba - Heart of the Continent.
