Five Years of the Tales of the Captain Duke: An Author Anniversary!

Five Years of the Tales of the Captain Duke: An Author Anniversary!

Origin of the idea for the Tales of the Captain Duke series

Five years ago, at 3:31 AM on October 20, 2012, I saved a little snippet of a story idea that would go on to change my life.

What’s remarkable is how unremarkable it is. The file is one of dozens in the folder that year. There were other ideas that were better developed, some that I had been working on for months or years already. But this one, this little seed of an idea, it grew into a whole series of steampunk novellas.

Thrilled to be attending the Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts & Literature this weekend in Ottawa!

I’ll be reading Saturday afternoon and paneling on Sunday (see schedule below), but mostly looking forward to catching up with friends and talking sci fi & spec fic with fellow nerds. Maybe even visit a few favourite coffee shops while I’m in town?

Signed books will be available in the Dealers Room courtesy of Myth Hawker!
