Synopsis

Winnipeg is a place of extremes. Winters are fierce and relentless. Summers are unbearable hot. It has been both the murder and auto theft capital of Canada and the Slurpee capital of the world. It is a place that exerts an influence, that marks and changes its inhabitants. This anthology features writers who have all lived in Winnipeg for a time and been inspired, horrified, changed by that experience. Contributors include David Annandale (Gethsemane Hall), Jonathan Ball (Ex Machina, Clockfire, The Politics of Knives), Keith Cadieux (Gaze) and new voices from the University of Manitoba?s creative MA program. The stories here capture a tone of history, dread, violence, weird, and sometimes even whimsy; a tone that only Winnipeg exudes.
