Aurora Award - Best Short-Form Work in English finalist for:
This Ink Feels Like Sorrow, Karin Lowachee
Something new is born.
Song and story. Myth and tradition. They are a shared legacy that both satisfies and inspires. Join these talented authors as they celebrate the rich, diverse, and occasionally truly odd culture of our country.
Mythspring is an anthology of original short speculative fiction, including fantasy, science fiction, and horror, where each story is derived from a Canadian song, folktale, myth, or other cultural source. Excerpts of the source text or image appears in the book with each story, along with a brief description of how the author was inspired by it.
Includes stories from notable speculative fiction authors such as Charles de Lint, James Alan Gardener, Alison Baird, Tanya Huff and Karin Lowachee.
The stories will be suitable for an older young adult audience, and the book will be of great interest to educators. It will be included as a "special event" volume within the Realms of Wonder series of original fantasy anthologies.
Be inspired. Celebrate our wealth of ideas and talent. Taste the delights of Mythspring.
