DATE: September 12th
TIME: 7 p.m.–9 p.m.
Summer may be fading, so let’s kick off fall the ChiSeries way!
Come out out hear two authors of speculative fiction read from their works, pick up some new books and be part of Ottawas’ speculative fiction community! We start at 7, but come early for a bite to eat. As always, this event is FREE!
September brings Claude Lalumière & Violette Malan. (Unfortunately, Ursula Pflug had been scheduled to read at this event, but had to drop out.)
VIOLETTE MALAN is the author of the Dhulyn and Parno sword-and-sorcery series (now available in omnibus editions) and The Mirror Lands series of primary world fantasies. As VM Escalada, she’s the author of the Faraman Prophecy series. Book One, Halls of Law, came out in August, and Book Two, Gift of Griffins, will be out next year. She’s on Facebook, she’s on Twitter, and website-wise check either www.violettemalan.com or www.vmescalada.com.
She strongly urges you to remember that no one expects the Spanish Inquisition.
CLAUDE LALUMIÈRE is the author of Objects of Worship, The Door to Lost Pages, Nocturnes and Other Nocturnes, and Venera Dreams: A Weird Entertainment. His first fiction – “Bestial Acts” – appeared in Interzone in 2002, and he has since published more than 100 stories, several of which have been translated into French, Italian, Polish, Spanish, Hungarian, and Serbian and adapted for stage, screen, audio, and comics. In summer 2016, he was one of 21 international short-fiction writers showcased at Serbia’s Kikinda Short 11: The New Deal. Originally from Montreal, he now lives in Ottawa.
