Thought for the Day

writing persistence

This persistence of writing is the only thing that separates the most famous authors in the world from everyone else, and it is coincidentally also what makes the best human beings.

Are we suggesting writers are a superior lifeform?

Yes.

Congratulations to all our short story submittors, and true encouragement to all our next contestants. Check back at starklightpress.com for our upcoming Fourth Short Story Contest announcement! Remember, past winners may re-contribute for our other anthologies and online publishing.

VCON Book Launch

What a wonderful, magical, personal way to connect with the authors of some of Canada’s most innovative and imaginative fiction!

Before a live audience, Canadian authors sit in an accessible, comfortable chair and share a passage from their new releases.

Steampunk-inspired Harry Houdini fiction to dystopian futures to magical forest fables to cthonic sagas were just a few of the many varied

tales orated at the Book Launch.

 

The much beloved Esser of the Gendler Race got some airtime as Virginia Carraway Stark read from her short story, “His Own Ticket”. This story is one of many GAF stories in Tales from Space Volume 1- one of four books published this year by StarkLight Press.

 

Here are some pictures of the Book Launch readers:

 

Here is Marty Chan, author of the Erich Weisz Chronicles, at the read, performing a Houdini-esque escape from a straightjacket:

An excellent evening of the best in this year’s Canadian speculative fiction- and some magic, to boot!
