Congratulations to Paul Marlowe, whose short story collection Ether Frolics was short-listed for the 16th annual Danuta Gleed Literary Award, recognizing the best debut English short fiction collection by a Canadian author.
"Despite being devilishly clever, there’s more to Marlowe’s debut collection than humour and wordplay... Marlowe’s sense of place is dynamic and fresh, for all that his writing is set in the past... what Marlowe has written is a creation well worth the read, revealing a major Canadian talent." - Chadwick Ginther, The Winnipeg Review
"If you're looking for excellent short steampunk fiction from one author, I would place Marlowe's Ether Frolics on a par with some of Blaylock's short work. Definitely recommended." -Mike Perschon, Steampunk Scholar
~ Reviews ~
"Marlowe's stories are detailed, quirky, with a good sense of humour,
but not without some dark, deft touches of horror..."
- Craig Pinhey, Telegraph-Journal, reviewing Ether Frolics
"This collection of nine short stories is a true jaw-dropping jewel of a book..."
- Aly Grauer reviewing Ether Frolics for Doctor Fantastique's Show of Wonders
"Bridgman packs the fantasy with a remarkable amount of information
about Iceland... pen and ink drawings appear throughout the novel
showcasing Bridgman’s considerable talent and creativity...
[she] successfully combines adventure, travel, magic, mystery,
mythology, and history in Kingdom of Trolls to enthral,
educate, and entertain young readers"
- Darleen Golke, CM Magazine
"Better-written than most best-selling kid-spy books, The Black Box will
appeal to fans of adventure stories and to anyone who would love to have
a benign sentient supercomputer at their beck and call."
- Kim Aippersbach, CM Magazine
