After last week’s successful launch, the Strange Wars & Strange Religion anthologies authors and editors are holding a launch party online right now. It’s great to meet the folks behind the curtain–the editorial team, and the authors who wrote the stories. The moderator asked me to talk briefly about my story, “Star Dust,” in Strange Wars.
The editorial team lives almost exclusively in the Toronto area but the authors come from all over the world.
“Rob Dinsmoor’s You’ll Never See It Coming impresses readers with delightful vignettes of life: dirty tricks played on childhood friends; a treacherous ride with youthful friends to a wedding in a rattling old jalopy; even a whimsical science-fiction tale that evokes images of, “Attack of the Fungus Creature.”
“Dinsmoor’s wordsmithing is superb and his imagination knows no bounds. It’s a great read.” -Phil Temples, A Home for Laika and The Kanawha Anomaly
