Cinq futurs à fuir avant qu’ils nous rattrapent!  Qu’arrivera-t-il quand les IA écriront mieux, et plus vite, que les écrivains?

Une femme-termite dont la vie n’a plus de valeur veut vivre ses dernières vacances. Et que peuvent espérer des adolescents coincés dans un vaisseau-génération qui se déglingue au fil des années-lumière?

Dweller on the Threshold by Skyla Dawn Cameron now released!

SF Canada member Skyla Dawn Cameron’s new novel, Dweller on the Threshold, is a little bit creepy, a little bit funny, and is now available.

Amidst the 2020 pandemic, Norah Sloane has been sheltering in place with her ex-boyfriend—the equivalent of three toddlers in a trench coat pretending to be an adult—who abruptly informs her he thinks she needs to move out. Coincidentally, her estranged father has just died and left his family’s home to her, and in a fit of defiant frustration, she packs her bags, her cats, and all the toilet paper, and drives five hours north to the tiny village of Hope Falls to claim her inheritance.

Selling the big, partially renovated old house during a global pandemic is out of the question, but the bills are paid for a few months to give her time to get on her feet. It’s the best solution, all things considered.

So what if it’s haunted?
