Description

"If only..." French forces had defeated the British at the Plains of Abraham. "If only..." Avro had built its famous aircraft. "If only..." Louis Riel's Red River Rebellion had succeeded and he'd escaped the hangman's noose. "If only..." the Louisiana Purchase had gone to Canada instead of the United States. "If only..." Henderson had missed that heart-stopping goal in 1972.

"If only..." is the elemental force behind all forms of speculative fiction, none moreso than alternate history. It's also virtually a Canadian mantra.Winner of the Aurora Award, Arrowdreams is the first ever collection of Canadian fiction in this genre, exploring the highways and byways of historical paths not taken.

This collection includes some of Canada's best and brightest speculative writers including Dave Duncan, Michael Skeet, Nancy Kilpatrick, Edo van Belkom, Glenn Grant, Allan Weiss, Laurent McAllister, Eric Choi, Paula Johanson and Derryl Murphy exploring the infinite possibilities of alternate Canadian history.

Contributor Notes

John Dupuis is one of Montreal's leading experts on science fiction and fantasy. Co-founder and former chair of Montreal's successful annual Con*Cept science fiction convention, John also writes science fiction criticism for The New York Review of Science Fiction and other publications

Writer Mark Shainblum, a lifelong native of Montreal, leads a secret double life as both mainstream journalist and comic book writer. In the mid-eighties, Shainblum founded Matrix Graphics, an independent Canadian comic book publisher. He was also the co-creator of Northguard, a post-modern superhero series acclaimed by the Canadian Museum of Caricature as "...the most sophisticated depiction ever of a Canadian national superhero." A former literary columnist for Hour, the Montreal arts and culture weekly, Shainblum currently freelances for such publications as The Montreal Gazette and Quill & Quire, as well as New York's Broadway Comics.

Editorial Review

“Space, alas, prevents me from saying more about this entertaining and frequently challenging book.... Hats off to Shainblum and Dupuis for this endeavor and may there be more!”

—The Montreal Gazette
