Now I don’t want to give readers the wrong idea here; I’m not usually one to pick up and review the genre of science fiction and fantasy, so don’t expect a one-eighty in the types of books that I’ll pick up going forward. However, it’s important to me that I explore as many genres as possible this summer for the CBC, so I couldn’t in good conscience miss this very popular category of writing. With that in mind, I spoke about The Children of Earth and Sky by Guy Gavriel Kay, and The Genius Asylum by Arlene F. Marks this past Tuesday on the Homestretch.
I was also excited to talk a bit about Edge Publishing: a publishing house right here in Calgary that’s been producing fabulous books since 2000. Reading local doesn’t just mean reading Alberta authors (although that’s a good thing to get in the habit of doing!), it also means reading books published in Alberta. Whether you’re following warriors into an epic battle in a historical fantasy, or shooting lasers in a space opera, this genre has something for everyone to enjoy!
