Aurora bundle spotlight: Steel Whispers

Steel Whispers CoverI continue my series of posts spotlighting the current ebook bundle of winners and finalists for Canada's premier speculative fiction award, the Aurora Award. Today we have an interview with Hayden Trenholm talking about his novel Steel Whispers, the second book in The Steele Chronicles trilogy.

Steel Whispers combines classic noir with near-future science fiction in this police procedural tale of a series of murders in a society increasingly divided by evolving cyborg and genetic technology.

1. Who is your favourite character in this book and why?

Like all the Frank Steele novels, this one is told from multiple points of view; Frank in first person, all the rest in third. It would be easy to say that Frank is my favourite—after all, I wrote three books about him.

However, I have a real affection for Buzz Wannamaker, the Aboriginal cyborg from northern Alberta. He has a teasing sense of humour and is the closest thing to an action hero in the book (Frank is in his mid-fifties and badly out of shape). Buzz’s philosophy combines a strong sense of the social outsider with a deep desire to be part of something larger than himself. Much of this book is about what constitutes a family and Buzz, more than anyone else, understands that often the best families are ones we build ourselves.

2. What's your favourite relationship between two characters in this book and why?

My favourite relationship is between Frank and his dead son. No spoiler alert there, as Frank discovers his son’s body at a crime scene in the first chapter. His gradual discovery of who his son was and why he was the way he was drives the entire action of the book. Suffice to say, by the end Frank knows Joshua better than most father’s ever know their sons and in ways that almost no one can imagine.

3. Is there something in this book that you consider to be particularly Canadian or that Canadians would relate to or recognize in terms of sensibilities, world view, societal beliefs, etc.?

The setting of course is purely Canadian in the city of Calgary and the country that surrounds it. Beyond that, a lot of the themes have to do with fairness and social justice, a belief that a society where everyone has a chance—and not just the rich—is a better place for everyone. The book is also very much about how you construct an inclusive society, rather than one that only works for those in the privileged class.

4. When did you know you'd be writing this story as a series? When you began the first book? During the first book? After the first book was finished?

I call the Steele Chronicles my accidental trilogy. I had no intention of writing a second novel (let alone a third one) until my publisher asked me to take it on. As a result, Steel Whispers is as much of a stand-alone book as Defining Diana and, I think, can be read without knowing much of what happened in the first. While some characters, like Steele and Wannamaker are carryovers from the first book, most of the others are brand new or had very minor roles in book one. The same by the way can be said—up to a point—about book three, Stealing Home.

And a short bio for Hayden:

Hayden Trenholm is an award-winning playwright, novelist and short story writer. His short fiction has appeared in many magazines and anthologies and on CBC radio. His first novel, A Circle of Birds, won the 3-Day Novel Writing competition in 1993; it was recently translated and published in French. His trilogy, The Steele Chronicles (Defining Diana, Steel Whispers and Stealing Home), were each nominated for an Aurora Award. Stealing Home, the third book, was a finalist for the Sunburst Award.

Hayden has won four Aurora Awards – twice for short fiction and twice for editing anthologies. He purchased Bundoran Press in 2012 and is its managing editor. He lives in Ottawa with his wife and fellow writer, Elizabeth Westbrook-Trenholm.

Aurora bundle spotlight: Tesseracts14

Tesseracts 14 CoverNext in my spotlight series on the current ebook bundle of winners and finalists for Canada's premier speculative fiction award, the Aurora Award, is an interview with Brett Alexander Savory, who along with John Robert Colombo, edited the anthology, Tesseracts14.

The Tesseracts series of anthologies is Canada's longest running, year after year showcasing the best in Canadian speculative short fiction. Tesseracts14: Strange Canadian Stories is no exception, with 23 amazing tales from some of the brightest lights in Canadian genre fiction.

1. Aside from being excellent examples of Canadian spec fic, was there something specific as editors you were looking for when selecting stories for this antho? Or did a unifying theme or tone emerge as you assembled the stories?

I think a particular brand of strangeness emerged as we read, so we might have leaned in that direction, yeah. Hence the subtitle: Strange Canadian Stories.

2. What is your strongest memory from editing this anthology / assembling this collection?

I remember most that I thought John and I would diverge greatly in some respects with regard to what content would appeal to us for this antho, but we were on the same page entirely, so there was really no disagreement at all about what should be included.

3. Is there something in these stories that you consider to be particularly Canadian or that Canadians would relate to or recognize in terms of sensibilities, world view, societal beliefs, etc.?

I don't think there's anything particularly Canadian about the stories, no. I've never been all that interested in that aspect of things; I always just want the best stories I can find for any anthology or magazine I'm editing. Since the authors are all Canadian, I'm sure that sensibility is in there, regardless, but we didn't seek it out.

4. What music would be the ideal listening soundtrack for readers for this book?

Hmm, I dunno. Slayer is always a good bet for anything I'm involved in, so let's go with that. *laughs* ;-)

Here are short bios for Brett and John:

Mr. Colombo is the Toronto-based author and anthologist whose byline has appeared on over 200 books of quality. These range from volumes of poetry to compilations of quotations. Colombo has been variously dubbed: “The Master Gatherer” for his compilations of Canadiana; “John ‘Bartlett’ Colombo” for his ‘quote books; “Canada’s Mr. Mystery” for his collections of told-as-true ghost stories; and,“Superfan” for his pioneering interest in Canadian fantastic literature. John is a towering presence in Canadian letters, a member of the Order of Canada – Canada's equivalent of knighthood – and is Canada's premiere folklorist and collector and compiler of Canadiana, as well as a significant poet, broadcaster, editor, and publisher.

Brett Alexander Savory is the Bram Stoker Award-winning Editor-in-Chief of ChiZine: Treatments of Light and Shade in Words, Co-Publisher with Sandra Kasturi of ChiZine Publications (CZP), has had nearly 50 short stories published, written two novels and penned the foreword to Tesseracts Twelve. In 2006, Necro Publications released his horror-comedy novel The Distance Travelled. September 2007 saw the release of his dark literary novel In and Down through Brindle & Glass, and November brought his first short story collection, No Further Messages, released through Delirium Books. In the works are three more novels. When he's not writing, reading, or editing, he plays drums for a band that his wife wants him to call Magic Pussy. Acknowledged by Quill & Quire's "Best Books of the Year" list in 2007 for his novel In and Down, Brett lives in Toronto with his wife Sandra Kasturi, whose writing has been featured in previous Tesseracts anthologies.

Aurora bundle spotlight: Thunder Road

Thunder Road CoverI continue my series of posts spotlighting the current ebook bundle of winners and finalists for Canada's premier speculative fiction award, the Aurora Award. Today we have an interview with Chadwick Ginther talking about his novel Thunder Road, the first book in his same titled trilogy.

Thunder Road merges Norse mythology into a modern Canadian landscape in this gritty action-packed fantasy that fans of Gaiman's American Gods will love. Here's the interview with Chadwick.

1. What is your favourite scene in this book and why?

My favourite scene in Thunder Road is the first one I wrote: my protagonist Ted Callan being forcibly tattooed with magic powers by a trio of Norse dwarves. I’d just finished revising my first (and thankfully unpublished) novel, a 135K sword and sorcery book. I knew I wanted to do something a bit different, so I set it on contemporary Earth, and decided to try a single protagonist rather than having six narrators.

I didn’t know who Ted was yet, or why he’d ended up in a dank motor inn room in Winnipeg, or why dwarves were interested in him, but that scene was a lightning bolt to me, I skipped backward a bit to figure out the who and the why, and then I was off to the races. But I always come back to thinking about that first scene. If I’m doing a reading from Thunder Road, it’s usually the one I choose.

3. What music would be the ideal listening soundtrack for readers for this book?

I love getting this question, because while I can’t play an instrument or sing worth a damn, I love music and all my books have a soundtrack. I tend not to outline when I’m drafting, the closest I come is choosing twenty or so songs that feel how I want the book to feel, and place them in an order that I makes sense to me. I’m looking for pacing changes, and abrupt style changes when I do this as well, to hang important scenes upon.

There are two possible soundtracks for Thunder Road, the original playlist I used while I was drafting the book, and since I used song titles as my chapter titles, there is also the chapter title list which appeared in the finished book. They’re pretty close to one another in content, but I do have a slight preference for the original as some of the songs that didn’t make the cut for the chapter title list became important later on in the series and appeared on future playlists.

The Original Playlist:  When the Levee Breaks-Led Zeppelin; There She Goes My Beautiful World-Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds; Riders on the Storm-The Doors; Things Ain’t What They Used to Be-The Black Keys; Great Expectations-The Gaslight Anthem; Little Miss Fortune-The Now Time Delegation; A Town Called Malice-The Jam; Welcome to My Nightmare-Alice Cooper; Until Morale Improves the Beatings Will Continue-Murder By Death; Gimme Shelter-The Rolling Stones (or The Sisters of Mercy cover version); Too Tough To Die-The Ramones; Misery Loves Company-Mike Ness (with Bruce Springsteen); Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)-David Bowie; Big Mouth Strikes Again-The Smiths; Where Evil Grows-The Poppy Family; Beautiful Future-Primal Scream; This World-The Staple Singers; Fire and Brimstone-Link Wray; If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)-AC/DC; The Red Headed Stranger-Willie Nelson

Chapter Title Playlist: When the Levee Breaks-Led Zeppelin; Riders on the Storm-The Doors; A Town Called Malice-The Jam; Welcome to My Nightmare-Alice Cooper; Gimme Shelter-The Rolling Stones (or The Sisters of Mercy cover version); The Ugly Truth-Matthew Sweet; Misery Loves Company-Mike Ness (with Bruce Springsteen); In the Houses of the Holy-Led Zeppelin; Little Miss Fortune-The Now Time Delegation; Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)-David Bowie; Walk on the Water-Creedence Clearwater Revival; Born to Run-Bruce Springsteen; Your Lucky Day in Hell-The Eels; When Worlds Collide-Powerman 5000; Dirty Old Town-The Pogues; Castles Made of Sand-Jimi Hendrix; I Fought the Law-The Clash; The Payback-James Brown; Where Evil Grows-The Poppy Family; Grandmother Waits for You-The Handsome Family; If You Want Blood (You’ve Got it)-AC/DC; Fire and Brimstone-Link Wray; Don’t Look Back in Anger-Oasis

4. Did you know you were writing a series when you first began this book, or did the idea of a series grow from the telling of this book?

Initially, I anticipated that I would be writing a series with Thunder Road. I wanted to write an ongoing series; I was reading a lot of urban fantasy at the time, and had designs that would’ve meant at least a few three book arcs before I’d said all I wanted to say with the characters and world of Thunder Road.

However, as I was writing the book, a single line near the end of the book changed my mind. This line made the story for the second book arrive almost fully formed, and that also sped up my timeline, so I ended up with a single trilogy, instead of three. I’ve since taken to filling in some of the plot points or characters I’d hoped to introduce with short stories to keep the series alive.

So far, the writing of my next series, starting with Graveyard Mind, forthcoming from ChiZine Publications, is following the open ended series plan. I’m drafting a followup and haven’t had any plan-destroying details thrown in by my characters, so assuming readers enjoy it, I’ll finally get my wish to have an ongoing series.

And a short bio for Chadwick:

Originally from Morden, Manitoba, Chadwick Ginther is the winner of The Mary Scorer Award for Best Book by a Manitoba Publisher, the winner of The Michael Van Rooy Award for Genre Fiction and thrice nominated for the Prix Aurora Awards for Thunder Road, Tombstone Blues, and Too Far Gone.

His short stories have appeared in many speculative fiction publications, and he co-hosts the Winnipeg arm of the Chiaroscuro Reading Series. A bookseller for over a decade, Chadwick Ginther lives and writes in Winnipeg.

Aurora bundle spotlight: Eutopia

Eutopia CoverNext in my interview series on the current ebook bundle of winners and finalists for Canada's premier speculative fiction award, the Aurora Award, is David Nickle with Eutopia: A Novel of Terrible Optimism.

Set in the early 1900's in Idaho, Eutopia, the first in a two-book series, delivers a dark and wonderfully creepy tale of eugenics, the supernatural, and a quest for human perfection gone horribly wrong. Here's the interview with Dave.

1. Who is your favourite character in this book and why?

I actually like a lot of the characters in Eutopia and don't want to offend any of them. Germaine Frost, the nurse who's on a mission for the Eugenics Records Office and rescues her orphaned nephew Jason from poverty and isolation was about the most fun to write. Andrew Waggoner, the black physician who's instrumental in unravelling the biological mystery of the Juke organism in Eliada, Idaho, was a character that I loved and admired in the writing.

But ultimately, I've got to go with Jason Thistledown, a kid who struggles with his family's dark legacy and also with a genetic legacy that may set him apart from everybody. I saw in Jason a strength and innocence that had me rooting for him, even when the story as I was writing was doing its best to kill him.

2. Is there something in this book that you consider to be particularly Canadian or that Canadians would relate to or recognize in terms of sensibilities, world view, societal beliefs, etc.?

Eutopia is set in the United States, in 1911 – a large part of it a day’s paddle from the Canadian border in north Idaho. But that’s as Canadian as the setting and characters get. The book is about America – the crazy optimism at the country’s frontiers that turned into a sickened mixture of American boosterism and ambition, and the very much unresolved matters of race and class inequalities. I’m tempted to say that the Canadian character in the book is one of perspective: it takes a critical look at the fallacy of the early American eugenics movement, and self-serving utopianism. The nature of the parasitic creatures known as Jukes might be seen as a vehicle to advance that oh-so-Canadian argument for atheism.

Rational and inclusive and secular: that’s the Canadian perspective, taken from our moral high ground. Would that we had that high ground. Canadians participated in forced sterilization of the disabled, the cultural genocide of the residential school system. We pray to strange gods here too.

One thing that might be uniquely Canadian: the book opens on one of its protagonists, Jason Thistledown, during a bad winter on a farm after the death of his mother. That used to be big in Canadian literature.

3. What music would be the ideal listening soundtrack for readers for this book?

There’s a range of music: some American orchestral music, like Aaron Copeland’s Apalachian Spring suite. Some of the Jurassic Park music that John Williams composed, Khachaturian's Spartacus music, Respighi's Pines of Rome / Fountains of Rome suite also captures the terrible optimism of American utopias that I was after in Eutopia. You won’t go wrong with Fleet Foxes—generally, for the north-western mood of the book, but thematically in particular, “White Winter Hymnal” and “Helplessness Blues.”

4. Did you know you were writing a series when you first began this book, or did the idea of a series grow from the telling of this book?

Eutopia is now part of a series of two books—its sequel, Volk: A Novel of Radiant Abomination is out now. But I didn’t plan it that way; I thought that Eutopia would be a nifty little stand-alone story, and when it appeared in 2011 I had no plans to write any more in that world. So I published two unrelated books after that (one, Rasputin’s Bastards, was previously written, and the next, The ‘Geisters, was written after Eutopia). Yet certain ideas nagged at me in the aftermath: science-fictional questions of exactly how the Jukes in Eutopia would exist in the larger world outside of the isolated mill-town of Eliada, and also some of the cognitive/theological implications of the Juke species. It became clear that even if the world didn’t need another Juke novel, I needed to write one. And who knows? Maybe the world did need one. Only one way to find out...

And a short bio for Dave:

David Nickle is a Toronto-based author and journalist whose fiction has appeared in magazines, websites and anthologies like Tor.com, Cemetery Dance, The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, Children of Lovecraft, The Madness of Dr. Caligari. Some of it has been collected in his book of stories, Monstrous Affections.

His first solo novel, Eutopia: A Novel of Terrible Optimism, led the National Post to call him "a worthy heir to the mantle of Stephen King." His novel Rasputin's Bastards was called supernatural eeriness at its best. The novel The 'Geisters was published in 2013, followed by the collection Knife Fight and Other Struggles. Volk: A Novel of Radiant Abomination, the sequel to Eutopia, was released in fall 2017.

Aurora Award bundle spotlight: Maddie Hatter

Maddie Hatter CoverNext up in my spotlight series on the current ebook bundle of winners and finalists for Canada's premier speculative fiction award, the Aurora Award, is Jayne Barnard with  Maddie Hatter and the Deadly Diamond.

In this first title in her young adult steampunk series, Jayne delivers rollicking adventure, fantastic machines, colourful characters, and a heroine who uses her curiosity and intelligence to solve a mystery that will keep you guessing to the end. Jayne was kind enough to drop by and answer some questions on Maddie

1. Who is your favourite character in this book and why?

Lady Sarah. She’s a Becky Sharp, a woman making her way up in the world through application of wit, charm, guile, and a few well-chosen aliases. She’s a lot of fun to write, and I thoroughly enjoyed sampling her continued adventuring in the third book, ‘Maddie Hatter and the Timely Taffeta’ (Tyche Books, October 2017).

2. What's your favourite relationship between two characters in this book and why?

I most admire – even envy – the relationship between Maddie and her mentor, Madame Taxus-Hemlock. While she has Maddie’s best interests at heart and helps her out when she’s stuck, Madame’s not an enabler. She supports Maddie’s strengths, empowering her with the skills and resources she needs to tackle challenges for herself. Mentoring is a vital relationship in business and in life, and women need greater familiarity with both sides of it.

3. What's your favourite scene in this book and why?

The ‘all suspects in the drawing room’ scene. Partly because it’s set in an isolated manor house on a Cornish moor - a trope I happily parodied from Gothic romances - and party because it’s a cliché of detective fiction that lends itself to up-ending. Like his better-known counterpart in the mustache-laden detective field, Hercule Hornblower attempts to manipulate and browbeat confessions out of each suspect in turn, but nothing in Maddie’s world works out the way it’s expected to, and so of course this scene doesn’t either.

4. Did you know you were writing a series when you first began this book, or did the idea of a series grow from the telling of this book?

The series grew out of this book. I had such fun with the characters - their improbable names, their gadgets, their dubious ethics – that I wasn’t ready to let them (most of them) go happily off into the New York sunset after all their adventures. When I started the second book, my publisher and I knew it would be a five-book series, each one a complete adventure that can stand on its own and yet, when taken all together, forming a single over-arching story of Maddie’s growth from a reckless adolescent to a respected professional in her Jules-Verne-meets-Indiana-Jones world.

And a short bio for Jayne:

Jayne Barnard is a founding member of Madame Saffron's Parasol Dueling League for Steampunk Ladies and the author of the Aurora-nominated Maddie Hatter Adventures. Her crime stories, set anywhere from the real past to several alternate futures, have seen print and prizes across Canada.

Fuelled by love of the wild, she's at work on a trilogy of mystery novels set in the forested foothills of the Rockies. The first, When the Flood Falls, won the Dundurn Unhanged Arthur in 2016 and is slated for release in 2018. She divides her writing year between Calgary, Alberta with an orange cat, and the rocky shore of Vancouver Island, where her only regular companion is an owl.

Aurora Award bundle spotlight: Scream Queen

Scream Queen CoverI wrote earlier this week about the third ebook bundle of winners and finalists for Canada's premier speculative fiction award, the Aurora Award, that I'm curating for StoryBundle. The bundle runs to November 30, and over the next couple of weeks, I'll be highlighting the various books in the bundle by posting a serious of short interviews with the authors.

First up is Edo van Belkom, winner of the Bram Stoker Award and two-time winner of the Aurora. Edo's bundle entry is Scream Queen, a fun and creepy romp that uses reality TV to put a dark twist on the haunted house genre.

1. Who is your favourite character in this book and why?

I really enjoyed writing about the Gowan brothers. Throughout the writing of the novel I pictured Bruce Campbell and Jack Black playing the brothers. SCREAM QUEEN was optioned once, but it never got to the point where I could make that suggestion.

2. What was the toughest scene to write in this book and why?

The toughest scene to write was right at the end. There is a way all these types of stories end and I didn’t want to do that. As it turned out, I think most people like it when stories are not turned on their ear. I’d still do it again. I always thought the Gowan brothers were the real heroes of the book, even though they might be slimy they come out unscathed… which one can argue is somewhat the way the world turns.

3. What's your favourite scene in this book and why?

I had a blast writing the scenes with the production crew as things were getting worse and worse in the house. I had to make it reasonable that people would stick around and continue to operate in the face of mounting horror. More money offered to the crew seemed to solve a lot.

4. What was the biggest surprise writing this book?

Authors often say the book practically wrote itself and I must say that was the case with SCREAM QUEEN. I knew where it was going so getting to that point was fairly easy to write and a lot of fun. I knew all along who was going to make it and who wasn't and I'm proud to say I stuck with that til the very end.

And a short bio for Edo:

Edo van Belkom, a former reporter on the sports and police beats for newspapers in and around Toronto, arrived on the horror scene in 1990. His first short story sale, "Baseball Memories," was selected for the prestigious Year's Best Horror Stories edited by Karl Edward Wagner. The story was also nominated for Canada's prestigious Aurora Award and appeared with work by Mordecai Richler and W. P. Kinsella in The Grand Slam Book of Canadian Baseball Writing.

Van Belkom hasn't looked back since. Some 150 short stories have sold to a variety of top magazines and anthologies. He has twice won the Aurora Award, taken home the Bram Stoker Award once, and been a finalist on many other occasions in a variety of categories spanning his work as a novelist, anthologist, and non-fiction author. His YA novel Wolf Pack won Ontario's prestigious Silver Birch Award. You can read more about Edo and his other books here.
