Product description

Review

"The best story this time around is clearly Matthew Hughes' Go Tell the Phoenicians. The story is a bit heavy on the exposition at the top, but the setup is worth it. Earth's civilization has spread through the galaxy, and it's a repressive one -- as Hughes puts in a memorable phrase, it's a combination of "multinational corporations and tyrannical regimes" (159). It's like all the worst aspects of colonial times, with the science fiction twist that only humans have discovered interstellar travel and they're keeping it a huge secret. Endless exploitation follows, as only the Bureau of Offworld Trade could do -- and it's certainly a wonderful acronym!" - James Schellenberg, Challenging Destiny
..".a highly recommended pick for any serious science fiction library whether home or public lending library." - The Midwest Book Review
"You might, though, be interested in reading Tesseracts Ten to see just what the state of speculative fiction in Canada is these days: what styles, themes and scenarios suggest themselves to Canada's would-be Isaac Asimovs." - Alex Rettie, Alberta Views
"Tesseracts 10 is one of the strongest of the Tesseracts collections of Canadian speculative fiction, containing 22 stories and poems that include translations into English of French-Canadian works. Although the Tesseracts collections put "speculative fiction" into the title, they've been dominated by what most readers would simply call science fiction.... the collection also contains a number of stories that suggest that Canadian speculative fiction is finally moving beyond its sci-fi foundation.... Tesseracts 10 is worth the read." - Dru Pagliassotti, The Harrow
"The anthology illustrates the broad range of topics and writing styles that falls into the collective basket known as Speculative Fiction. The stories won't appeal to everyone, but the good news is there should be something in here for almost every taste. The collection includes short poems of only seven lines all the way up to stories of 30 pages in length. With a growing pool of writing to choose from, this bodes well for Canadian SF. The popularity of the genre is exemplified by the split in writers from what may once long ago have been thought a mainly male bastion. In this anthology, we have eight male writers and thirteen female authors, while a generous variety both of male and female protagonists inhabit the stories. Highly Recommended." - Ronald Hore, The Canadian Review of Materials
