New issue of the Colored Lens

Two SF Canada members have short stories in the Spring 2019 issue of The Colored Lens Speculative Fiction Magazine.

Kristin Janz’s “The Hungry Ghosts” contains an interesting mix of profanity, sex, Christianity, and a protagonist who’s already dead. The basis was Kristin’s application story for the esteemed Clarion West workshop in 2008.

Kristin writes within many genres and sub-genres with a particular fondness for high fantasy. As well as being a Clarion West alumni, she was a Writers of the Future finalist in 2015, and currently serves on the board of directors of SF Canada. She is the co-owner of Enigmatic Mirror Press (along with her husband Donald S. Crankshaw) which publishes the Mysterion online magazine.

Geoffrey W. Cole’s “The Memetic Vaccine” is a detective tale about a Koro epidemic catching in a lunar colony. To learn what Koro is, you might have to google it; however Geoff warns that googling Koro is one of the risk factors for contracting Koro — beware!

Geoff has a certificate in creative writing through The Writers Studio program at Simon Fraser University and a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia. He also has degrees in Biology, Mechanical Engineering, Beer Slinging, and Rock and/or Roll.
