I've read every volume in the Tesseracts series, and published in some of them. I remember reading the first Tesseracts on the Cummer 42 TTC bus on the way home from school and having my mind so blown by stories from Margaret Atwood, William Gibson and David Kirkpatrick that I missed my stop and had to walk home (reading all the way). It was an incredible honour to co-edit one of the successor volumes.
There will be launch-parties for the book all across Canada, including Vancouver and Calgary.

This year, Tesseracts Eleven brings the series to a new height, with a blend of past and present writers, with their own individual visions of the future. The literature of Tesseracts Eleven has been critically selected and shaped into the collection you see by this year's editors, two of Canada's finest writers - acclaimed authors Cory Doctorow and Holly Phillips. Together they have chosen a powerful combination of 22 works by well known writers, as well as newer authors whose futures you will want to follow.
Confirmed authors in attendance for Toronto launch include:
* Susan Deefholts
* Steven Kotowych
* David Nickle
* Sandra Riedel
* Claude LaLumiere
* Douglas Arnott
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
