Praise for Paths to the Stars from Saskatchewan Book Awards jurors

Paths to the Stars was shortlisted for two Saskatchewan Book Awards this year (my eighth book to be shortlisted): the City of Regina Book Award for best book by a Regina author, and the Muslims for Peace and Justice Fiction Award, for best work of fiction. Although it didn’t win (you can see the complete list of winners here, and congratulations to them all!), it did get some nice comments from the jurors.

From the City of Regina Book Awards jurors (Bruce HunterBetty Jane Hegerat, and Emily-Jane Hills Orford):

“This fascinating collection of science fiction short stories spans the writing career of this very prolific writer. The author has a powerful imagination and transports readers to places and situations never before imagined: from music and theatre on far away planets, to unusual crops causing convern in the  prairies, to times far in the future with all kinds of fascinating creatures. The realm of possibility is endless in this author’s vivid imagination.”

And from the Muslims for Peace and Justice Fiction Award jurors, Rona AltrowsDora Dueck, and Zoe S. Roy

Paths to the Stars is a well-written collection of science fiction. They are rich with imagination, and stimulate the reader’s interest in space and other worlds beyond our own small planet.”
