The official launch of Postscripts to Darkness Volume 4 in Ottawa (October 8) went very well indeed. Matt Moore and ChiSeries were phenom hosts, the readings were memorable, and we sold out of the new issue (fortunately we have more back at the ranch). Contributors Lydia Peever and Kate Heartfield were in fine form as they read their respective Volume 4 tales, Matt Moore teased the crowd with a great reading of John F.D. Taff’s “The Night Moves,” and Hayden Trenholm of Bundoran Press (fresh off his Aurora win for Blood and Water) mesmerized the room with his take on Tony Burgess’s “Soft Shell Story.” Volume 4 was also on offer at Can-Con, Ottawa’s annual spec fic convention (October 4-6), and the Ottawa Small Press Book Fair (October 12), so it’s been around town quite a bit this past week.
Now it’s Toronto’s turn. Join us at the ROUND Venue, 152A Augusta Avenue, on Friday, October 25, at 6:30pm, and grab your copy in person. PstD friend Michael Kelly of Shadows & Tall Trees will be on hand to read, as well as three Volume 4 contributors: Albert Choi, Laura deHaan and Graeme Lottering. We hope to see you there, and we promise to bring extra copies to the event this time.
