Darren Ridgley & Adam Petrash (Eds.) -- Book Launch

Thursday Oct 11 2018 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium

Launch of Parallel Prairies: Stories (Great Plains Publications).

The Canadian Prairie teems with lifeónot all of it of this world. Get acquainted with baby dragons, killer insects, faery kings, infernal entities and more, as 19 authors let the Manitoban landscape inspire weird and wondrous tales. You thought the Prairies were flat, plain, and boring. You were wrong.

This evening will feature readings from contributors Jennifer Collerone, Christine Steendam, Will J. Fawley, and Chris Allinotte.

Darren Ridgley is a journalist and speculative fiction writer living in Winnipeg. When not editing copy for community newspapers in Winnipeg or trying to spin a yarn of the weird and wondrous, he can be found fussing over tomatoes, wrangling toddlers, walking the enormous family dog, or making more coffee.

Adam Petrash is a writer from Winnipeg. He is the author of the indie novella, The Ones to Make it Through, which went to #1 on the McNally Robinson Bestsellers list, and his work has appeared in a handful of journals throughout North America.

"So much fun! I'm loving this book ... the stories take place in Manitoba, but they transcend" -- Joanne Kelly, CBC Manitoba 

"... a kaleidoscope of style and subject matter. Echoes of iconic storylines pulled from the annals of cult sci-fi, fantasy and suspense ring through Manitoba's landscape." -- The Uniter

"I was born and raised in Thompson -- a northern community with mosquitos big as ravens, ravens big as bears, and bears that run for local office -- so I know weird when I read it. And this is some choice weird right here. I don't know what the future holds for Manitoba, but if these stories are any indication, the flatlands are in for a bumpy ride." -- Corey Redekop, author of Husk and Shelf Monkey
