This Tuesday, September 22, I’ll be in Ottawa to read at the city’s ChiSeries, ChiZine’s monthly reading series bringing you the best voices in horror, fantasy and science fiction in several different Canadian cities. I’ll be reading alongside authors Yves Meynard (Chrysanthe) and Linda Poitevin (the Grigori Legacy series) at Maxwell’s (340 Elgin Street). So please join us for a night of (let’s be optimistic) incredible readings and fantastic times. Full details on the event and my esteemed co-readers follows:

Yves Meynard was born in 1964, in the city of Québec, lived most of his life in Montreal and has recently moved to Ottawa. He has been active in Québec science fiction circles since 1986, serving as literary editor for the magazine Solaris from 1994 to 2001. He has published over thirty short stories in French and over a dozen in English. He is a multiple award winner, with several Boréal and Aurora Awards, along with the Grand Prix de la Science-Fiction et du Fantastique Québécois, Québec’s highest award in the field. He has published sixteen books in French and three in English, including The Book of Knights, a Mythopoeic Award finalist, and the massive novel Chrysanthe.
Linda Poitevin is a writer possessed of both a light side and a dark one. On the dark side, she’s the author of the Grigori Legacy, an urban fantasy series featuring a hard-as-nails cop caught up in the war between Heaven and Hell. In her lighter moments, she writes the sweet and funny Ever After contemporary romance series. And when she’s not plotting the world’s downfall or next great love story, she’s a wife, mom, friend, coffee snob, gardener, walker of a Giant Dog, minion to the Itty Bitty Kitty, and avid food preserver (you know, just in case that whole Zombie Apocalypse thing really happens).
