Tesseracts 18: Wrestling with— Space–an update


We’re very excited to announce that we are just double-checking for space limitations in order to pack as many stories as we can into the anthology.  You should be hearing from us this week.  We thank you all for your patience.  I have to say that reading your stories and poems has been a profound pleasure.  Liana and I are attempting to craft the best anthology of faith-infused Canadian science fiction and fantasy we can made up of stories and poems that touched us, and that we feel, will touch you.  As it stands, the anthology seems evenly divided between men and women, between Canadian regions, between science fiction and fantasy, between dark and light, between faiths, between real and imagined faiths even–and the theme, by stories we’ve accepted so far, has been cleverly played, surprising us again and again.  I think as editors you have an idea of what your anthology might look like after you make the call, what it might address, what kind of reading experience you might be looking for.  I can honestly say this is better than I ever imagined.

Please bear with us this week as we finalize the table of contents. Those of you who submitted, you will be hearing from us through emails, so watch for Tesseracts18 emails.  And keep watching this space as we talk more about faith in fantasy and science fiction and about Tesseracts 18: Wrestling with Gods.

Thank you, Jerome and Liana, editors.
