This is the first review I’ve come across for the new made-in-Manitoba anthology Parallel Prairies, and I’m glad to say the reviewer appears to have enjoyed my short story “Vincent and Charlie”.
Another rural close encounter of note in the collection is Brandon-based Patrick Johanneson’s Vincent and Charlie. The story explores the concept of alien telepathy and memory manipulation from inside a mind descending into dementia. Johanneson finds an artful balance between suspense and sentimentality and adds a soupçon of Men in Black for good measure.Sarah Jo Kirsch, The Uniter
Parallel Prairies launches Oct. 11, 2018, at McNally Robinson Booksellers in Winnipeg, and Oct. 13, 2018, at Brandon University’s John E. Robbins Library.
You can order the book from McNally Robinson, too, if you’d like (there will be copies available at the launches, of course).
