Colin Dodds chez lui

February 2020. Since its November launch, my sci-fi novel Ms. Never has been racking up some great reviews, and it was a finalist for the Indies Today Best Books of the Year Award! It’s about a woman with apocalyptic depression who falls in love with a guy who buys people’s souls using the Terms of Service in cell-phone contracts. Things may get a little quiet on my end for a spell, while I take on some exciting new projects. Visit my site at thecolindodds.com. If you’ve enjoyed any of my books, I hope you’ll drop a short review on Amazon or Goodreads — it always helps.

A wooded hill in Guelph

July 2019. I’d like to introduce you to Gordon Hill Press, a new literary press located in Guelph, Ontario. We publish poetry, literary fiction, creative non-fiction, and criticism from a diversity of writers, particularly those living with disability. We are launching our inaugural season in September 2019 with a trio of innovative literary works. For more information, go to gordonhillpress.com.

Michael Chin near fair grounds

July 2019. I’m pleased to report that I have my first two full-length short story collections coming out: You Might Forget the Sky was Ever Blue via Duck Lake Books on September 15 and Circus Folk via Hoot ‘n’ Waddle Press in November. The first is a short story collection that includes experiments in form with a social conscience, including stories about a third-grade teacher in Baltimore who tries to make sense of the world to students during the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and a boy raised to believe he’s legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan’s little brother. My website is miketchin.com.

— Best wishes, Michael Chin
