We’re already one month into 2016, and Clockwork Canada: Steampunk Fiction is getting closer and closer to publication (May 1st!). The book is near and dear to my heart, a passion project, really. I love Canadian history, I love steampunk, and I wanted to give Canadian authors a chance to write about Canada and engage critically with steampunk as a whole, and they did that wonderfully.
And now it’s possible to pre-order Clockwork Canada!
Just look at that list of contributors:
- Colleen Anderson
- Charlotte Ashley
- Chantal Boudreau
- Terri Favro
- Kate Heartfield
- Claire Humphrey
- Karin Lowachee
- Rati Mehrotra
- Brent Nichols
- Tony Pi
- Rhea Rose
- Holly Schofield
- Kate Story
- Harold R. Thompson
- Michal Wojcik
I’m also very pleased to have received wonderful blurbs from two people I greatly admire, Ann VanderMeer and Helen Marshall:
“Steampunk with a Canadian accent – in Clockwork Canada Dominik Parisien has given us a wonderful new way to look at not just Steampunk but also some of the best new Canadian fiction being written. Full of adventure, surprise, unusual inventions and, of course, steam, this anthology will make you remember why you fell in love with Steampunk in the first place.”— Ann VanderMeer, Hugo, World Fantasy, and British Fantasy award winning editor
“This is Canadian fiction like you’ve never seen it before: a buzzing, crackling, supercharged assemblage of thrills and derring-do, secret histories, incredible machines and fantastical creatures. Prepare yourself for a wild ride through a landscape that’s somehow recognizable and utterly, gloriously strange.” — Helen Marshall, World Fantasy Award-winning author of Gifts For The One Who Comes After

I adore short fiction, love Canadian content, and have been looking for a doorway into Steampunk, which I’ve never really tried. I’ll definitely seek out a copy.
Thanks! I’m glad to hear that. I think the authors are doing really interesting things with the genre, and I’d love to hear your thoughts about the stories.
