"Curious, if True": The Fantastic in Literature

My incredibly talented friend Betty Liang designed the cover for "Curious, if True": The Fantastic in Literature, a collection of articles by English graduate students on fantasy, science fiction, and magic realism. I edited and contributed an article to the book, and it is forthcoming from Cambridge Scholars Publishers. Contributors include Luke R. J. Maynard, Gaelan Gilbert, Mary Eileen Wennekers, Elisa Bursten, Amy Bright, Max F. R. Olesen, Laura van Dyke, Erin Dunbar, Tessa Mellas, Shannon M. Minifie, Thomas Stuart, with a foreword written by Dr. Robert Runte, a professor at the University of Lethbridge.
