Parallel Prairies available now

Parallel Prairies was officially launched in Winnipeg at McNally Robinson Booksellers on Oct. 11, to a fantastic crowd of local supporters. Thanks very much to everyone who came out to support the event, and to our contributors who lined up to sign everyone’s books afterward. We have a great community of writers in Winnipeg and it was wonderful to see you all as we celebrated the occasion.

Thanks as well to Brandon University for hosting our Brandon launch Oct. 13 as part of its Homecoming events. The event saw readings from contributors Craig Russell and Patrick Johanneson, as well as co-editor Darren Ridgley.

Parallel Prairies can be purchased through McNally Robinson, Chapters, and Amazon. We also encourage those who might want to get their hands on a copy, but may not have it in the budget to buy one, to please request it at your local library.

Thanks once again to all of our supporters. Happy reading!

Parallel Prairies out in Fall 2018

Editors Adam Petrash and Darren Ridgley are pleased to announce that Parallel Prairies, an anthology of Manitoba-inspired speculative fiction, is being published by Great Plains Publications Ltd. in the fall of 2018.

The anthology, which is headed to bookstores via GP’s Enfield & Wizenty imprint, will feature fantasy, science-fiction, and horror stories which are set in or inspired by Manitoba, by a collection of authors who lean on their own histories with the province to tell weird and wonderful tales.
