Our next event has been added to the event calendar for June. Brain Lag will be returning to Faery Fest in Guelph, June 20-22.


Join us for a weekend of magic and merriment, and take in readings from local fantasy authors on Saturday and Sunday, including Catherine Fitzsimmons reading from her latest novel Enduring Chaos.

New events have been added to the event calendar for May.

Brain Lag will be in the vendors room at SuperFan ComicCon at the Better Living Centre in Exhibition Place in Toronto, May 17-19 (Victoria Day weekend). Author Catherine Fitzsimmons will also be there hosting panels on writing.

Also, ChiSeries Toronto will be hosting Hugh A. D. Spencer along with several other local authors, where you can take in a reading from Extreme Dentistry. Join him Wednesday, May 21 at 8:00 p.m. at ROUND Venue, 152a Augusta Ave. in Toronto. View the Facebook event page for full details.


Our newest title, Extreme Dentistry by twice Aurora Award-nominated author Hugh A. D. Spencer, is now available for purchase! Middle-aged, middle-income and lapsed Mormon Arthur Percy felt his life lurch from a difficult normality onto the rails of a carnival ride heading somewhere too much like the Twilight Zone for his liking. Perhaps it is more the “Anti-Twilight Zone” that Arthur enters—where vampires, shape shifters and ghouls are not gorgeous or glamorous but genetic parasites from a hideous communal intelligence known as the Hive. Who will save the human race? And what does all this have to do with Dr. Calvin Stewart, Arthur’s new dentist?

This tale of sarcasm, Mormonism, shopping malls, and more will leave you in stitches. Visit the book detail page to pick up your paperback or ebook today, and join us Saturday, April 5th at 4:00 p.m. during Ad Astra for the official launch party!

We will be at SFContario at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Toronto at 300 Jarvis St. next weekend, November 29-December 1. Brain Lag will be in the dealers room all weekend and authors Simon McNeil and Catherine Fitzsimmons will be hosting panels and workshops throughout the convention.

Also, the official launch party for Enduring Chaos, the newest novel by Catherine Fitzsimmons, is happening during SFContario. The launch party is open to the public so come to the Courtyard room of the Ramada Plaza Hotel on Saturday, November 30 at 6:00 p.m. to celebrate the release of our fourth title with prizes, games, and more. RSVPs by e-mail or on the Facebook event page preferred but walk-ins are welcome.

For those in the Milton area, there will be a local launch event taking place at Recycled Reading on Main St. between James and Martin St. on Friday, December 6 at 3:00 p.m. Come meet the author, get a signed copy, learn more about this new book, and enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages.

We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events. For more information, please check out the event calendar or watch our Facebook page.

Details on our next title, releasing at the end of November, are now available. Presenting Enduring Chaos by Catherine Fitzsimmons, author of Aurius and Halcyon, and the second book taking place in the world of J. R. Dwornik’s Ruins of Change:

Synopsis:

Cursed with fearsome eyes and a dangerous gift, any chance of Damian Sires having an ordinary life was dashed the moment she was born. All her life, she has hidden her abnormalities and fought for acceptance behind the shadow of a veil and her respected merchant father.

When Damian’s power spirals out of control and casts her out alone into the world, she finds herself caught up in plots as old as the gods themselves. Bitter exiles, deposed nobility, clandestine knights, and a divine being with an ancient grudge all close in on the unstable power radiating from Damian.

Desperate to keep that power contained, she sets out with mysterious allies in an attempt to find someone who can help her in a world that fears magic. Yet the source of Damian’s ability is far more deadly than she imagined.

Visit the book’s official website for more information and for a chance to win a free ebook of Ruins of Change, and stay tuned to Brain Lag for more information as we get closer to the book’s release date.

The Word on the Street, Toronto’s celebration of literature, is tomorrow. Look for Brain Lag in the Fringe Beat section, at the corner of Wellesley St. and Queen’s Park Crescent East. Hope to see you there.
