About this Item
McNally Robinson P.O.D.
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.
