What happens when you get a team of writers together and give them 24 hours to write and edit an entire speculative fiction collection on the theme of “Colony”? This anthology happens!
This speculative fiction anthology was created during an intense, 24-hour period of writing and editing. A team of authors residing in Toronto were given the theme of “Colony”, and a strict timeline to produce stories based on that theme.This is more than a collection of imaginative and entertaining stories—it is also a feat in creative writing. It embodies the efforts of authors writing and editing fervently under absurd time pressures. They set themselves a challenge and pushed themselves to the finish line. The Colony anthology is the result of their efforts.
I hope you get a chance to read it, and let the authors know what you thought of their work!
I just put my book, Angels and Wormholes, on sale from $3.99 to 99c. It’ll be at that price for the next two weeks. I would love if you would pick up a copy. And please leave a review, if you’re up for it (Amazon reviews are really, really valuable for writers).
Some reviews of the book (from the first draft on Wattpad):
“The story is too excellent! I’m still trying to fathom what the heck goes on in the writer’s mind for his to be able to create this well thought-out universe.”
“Wow! That was bind blowing!”
“Thanks for such an excellent story. I haven’t been so Completely chained to a book in years.”
“Just…wow. I have never read such a complex sci-fi novel with so much detail in it!”
“Wow! I really didn’t want this book to end, well done!”
“Thoroughly enjoyed it, struggled putting it down.”
“beautiful character development and diversity!”
I hope those reviews are enough to encourage you to pick up the book from Amazon. And for the next couple weeks, it’ll be cheaper than a coffee!
I don’t like censorship. I find it morally repugnant, and I don’t think it should happen in a democracy.
On an individual level, censorship is a violation of personal autonomy. Your free will is taken away if different ways of looking at the world are hidden from you. It’s paternalistic and authoritarian. On a social level, censorship is detrimental to the health of democracy. You need to share and discuss ideas for democracy to work. That’s why freedom of speech is one of the pillars of democracy. Democracy isn’t just voting freely. It’s also reading and writing freely. Censorship is anti-democratic.
One way to fight back is by reading and promoting works that people are trying to censor. I think of it as my democratic responsibility to seek out the ideas that people are trying to suppress.
Here is a link to buy the book if you’re interested.

My science fiction novel, Angels and Wormholes, is now available on Amazon kindle.
(An earlier draft of the novel is still available for free on Wattpad, where it’s gotten a great reception, including 145K reads.)
I hope you’ll check it out if you’re interested, and please leave a review. These are worth far more than money.
Thanks for your support!
