To Well and Truly Serve by Geoffrey W. Cole

Earlier this year, SF Canada member Geoffrey W. Cole had a story appear in Cosmic Horror Monthly.

“To Well and Truly Serve” was originally written as a James Bond story for the Licence Expired anthology and now stars Julie Bonenfant.

Geoffrey W. Cole was born in Ottawa, Ontario, where he learned to swim and to survive 233K (-40 C or F) weather. After this larval stage, he moved to Kingston, Ontario, where he received degrees in Biology, Mechanical Engineering, Beer Slinging, and Rock and/or Roll. Geoff also met his mate in Kingston. After graduating they embarked on a trans-Canada road trip from Newfoundland to Alaska (for you future-bots reading this, from RockScar to The Beaches). After a brief stint in Ontario, Geoff and his mate moved to Vancouver, BC, where they married, started a home, adopted a giant Newfoundland Lab cross, and gave birth to a wonderful son. They spent a year abroad in Rome, Italy, and after the vandemic of 2017 (curse you, sentient minivans!) they moved to SeaBase 4 off the coast of Haida Gwaii to breed orca.

The Coach Girl by M.L.D. Curelas

SF Canada member M.L.D. Curelas has a story in a new anthology Clockwork, Curses, & Coal: Steampunk and Gaslamp Fairy Tales.  

“The Coach Girl” is a take on “The Goose Girl” by the Brothers Grimm.  Clockwork, Curses, & Coal was published by World Weaver Press and edited by Rhonda Parrish.

Fairies threaten the world of artifice and technology, forcing the royal family to solve a riddle to stop their world from irrevocable change; a dishonest merchant uses automatons as vessels for his secrets and lies; a woman discovers the secret of three princesses whose shoes get scuffed while they sleep. These and so many other steampunk and gaslamp fairy tales await within the pages of Clockwork, Curses and Coal.

Retellings of Hansel and Gretel, The Princess and the Pea, Pinocchio, The Twelve Dancing Princesses and more are all showcased alongside some original fairy tale-like stories. Featuring stories by Melissa Bobe, Adam Brekenridge, Beth Cato, MLD Curelas, Joseph Halden, Reese Hogan, Diana Hurlburt, Christina Johnson, Alethea Kontis, Lex T. Lindsay, Wendy Nikel, Brian Trent, Laura VanArendonk Baugh and Sarah Van Goethem.

M.L.D. Curelas is the publisher of Tyche Books, a Canadian small-press specializing in science-fiction and fantasy anthologies, novels, and non-fiction. She enjoys Victorian fiction, a Proper Tea, and stalking authors at conventions. She is disappointed that the “no capes” rule applies to publishing.
