Thank you to everyone who came out to see us at Ad Astra last weekend! It was a fantastic event both at our booth in the dealers room and with the many events that our authors participated in. Our exclusive preview of our next title, The Black Trillium by Simon McNeil, was very warmly received, and so we are proud to release the cover art for The Black Trillium!

This post-apocalyptic wuxia fantasy, set in the ruins of Toronto, will be released on June 27. Ebooks are available for preorder in some major ebook retailers and will be appearing in more over the coming weeks, so order your copy and be one of the first to read this exciting new adult story. More details on the book are available on the book detail page.

We hope you’ll join us in welcoming Simon McNeil to the family of Brain Lag authors and will join us for the launch party of The Black Trillium this summer in Toronto. Stay tuned to our social media outlets or sign up for our mailing list for details as they’re released.

Brain Lag’s next confirmed appearance is at Ad Astra in Richmond Hill, Ontario (just outside Toronto) April 10-12. We will be in the dealers room all weekend with all of our titles and authors Catherine Fitzsimmons and Simon McNeil will be hosting panels and readings at the convention. We will also be giving presentations on our current and upcoming titles on the new demo stage outside the dealers room. Stay tuned as the schedules for these exciting events are released.

We are also very excited to be featuring exclusive sneak peeks at our next title, The Black Trillium by Simon McNeil! This debut novel is a post-apocalyptic wuxia fantasy set in the ruins of a far future Toronto, which will release this summer. Ad Astra attendees can be the first to view the cover art and a preview of the book and take in a reading by the author.

You can also see Simon McNeil at the Toronto Specfic Colloquium next Saturday, March 7th at ROUND Venue, speaking on the inseparability of art and politics. Hope to see you there!

Brain Lag now has an official YouTube channel. Here is where we will post news, interviews, Q&As, author readings, and more related to our authors and books. Check out our playlist of videos featuring Brain Lag authors and subscribe to be the first to know when new content is posted.

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.
