Those Who Make Us – Canadian Creature, Myth, and Monster Stories

As a creative writing instructor, I’m always curious about the different genres through which we find expression, and I’m always learning from my students: no doubt about it, speculative fiction figures a lot in their imaginations. Here’s my debut into that world, a short story “Antony’s Arboretum” published this year in Exile Edition’s Those Who Make Us: Canadian Creature, Myth, and Monster Stories

those-who-make-us exile editions

Description:

“What resides beneath the blankets of snow, under the ripples of water, within the whispers of the wind, and between the husks of trees all across Canada? Creatures, myths and monsters are everywhere…even if we don’t always see them.

This is a unique and powerful collection of all-new, cross-genre tales that take the reader into real and imagined worlds, ranging from an encounter with the Metis creature Rugaru to trolls dissatisfied with modern life, to the demons who follow us from our parents’ countries, and to Anishinaabe myths about the creation of creeks. Eightteen emerging and award-winning authors explore the way we think about and interact with the unnatural ­ showing how much the stories we create can teach us about what it means to be human.” – 

Thanks to Kelsi Morris and Kaitlin Tremblay for putting together this amazing anthology.
