Imaginarium 2012

Orphan children destroy their nasty superintendent and create a clockwork replacement; a professor publishes a list of known vampires, but doesn’t get it quite right; a military drone achieves sentience—and an unfortunate conscience; self-replicating humanoid robots fall in love with humans; an alien ship lands in a schoolyard and shows the teenagers the infinite probabilities of the universe. . . .

All these worlds and more exist within the pages of Imaginarium 2012—the first in a yearly anthology series, gathering together the voices of the best Canadian writers and poets working in the genres (science fiction, fantasy, horror, magic realism, etc.) today.

Authors include: Kelley Armstrong, Madeline Ashby, Cory Doctorow, Gemma Files, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, David Nickle, Geoff Ryman, Peter Watts, Rio Youers and more.
