A man runs for his life from the promise of death held by trees; a lost VHS tape offers footage of a grisly history; a diaspora clings to magical shards of home and more in this collection of speculative fiction by authors from across the Canadian Prairies.
A follow-up to the 2018 hit, Parallel Prairies.
Alternate Plains: Stories of Prairie Speculative Fiction is an anthology of prairie-inspired speculative fiction co-edited by Darren Ridgley and myself.
The anthology features fantasy, horror, and science-fiction stories which are set in or inspired by Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba from a collection of authors who lean on their own histories with the provinces to tell weird and wonderful tales.
