Description

Seeds and Other Stories is cross-genre collection including prose poems, literary fiction, science fiction, fantasy, magic realism, and slipstream, previously published in award-winning venues in Canada, the U.S., and the UK. Many of the stories have an element of fantasy: witches, and magical objects, at least as concepts, occur several times. Many of the stories provide a window into the lives of marginalized youth who are almost but not quite street people, as they often find shelter even if it is no more than a campsite. The characters are lost souls, drifting, just getting by, looking for safety from sexual abuse, suffering loss, and a bit muddled by drugs and/or alcohol. Dislocations in the text match the ambiance of both fantasy and drug-induced delusions. Mothers are missing children. Young adults are trying to make family-type connections with other lost souls. Some are trying to be artists or recovering from substance abuse. These stories span decades in the author's life and include one of her earliest fiction publications, as well many experimental, speculative and literary pieces that were were appeared in prestigious publications in Canada, the U.S. and the UK.
