Canadian, biologist, award-winning author/editor, for the past 25 years Julie E. Czerneda has shared her curiosity about living things and optimism about life through her science fiction and fantasy, published by DAW Books, NY. With her partner Roger Czerneda, she lives in a small town outside Ottawa, Ontario, in a grand century home with plenty of room for her books and his photographs. When not walking along the river or wilding their yard, they’ll be off to canoe Algonquin Park, their happy place.
May 3rd is the release date for the mass market edition of Esen’s latest, from DAW Books. There’s trouble ahead for our valiant Blue Blob of Goodness but you know she’ll come through—if not ever as expected.
We’re celebrating my 25th anniversary in fiction and DAW with a collection of my short stories for you. I’ve added notes to each and, bonus? There’s an all-new Night’s Edge story! Cover and interior design by Roger H. Czerneda.
I went big in my latest science fiction standalone (my new aliens included) to explore what I find most intimate and precious about us. Community. Curiosity and imagination. Above all, the drive to understand what isn’t us at all.
Now Writing…Fantasy! I’m busy researching the existing Night’s Edge books—and worldbuilding—in preparation to write three new novels of dragons, house toads, and Jenn Nalynn, to be published by DAW Books starting in 2023. First up is a treat for you (and me) this year. I’m writing a special new story called “A Pearl from the Dark” about Roche, the troubled young man Jenn wished would always tell the truth and now must, who left Marrowdell at the end of A Turn of Light. You’ll find “Pearl” in my new collection, Imaginings.
