Made in Canada is the proud recipient of a 2000, 2003 & 2004 Prix Aurora Award!


Over the last 44 years Canada has enjoyed an amazing growth of Fantastic Literature writers. In 1959 Phyllis Gotleib was Canada's only regularly published SF author. Since then the list has grown to the Authors listed in this guide plus many that I've missed.

The term "Canadian Fantastic Literature" covers the genres science fiction, fantasy and horror. In Canada it is quite common for science fiction authors to also write fantasy or for fantasy authors to also write horror. It is also common for Canadian mainstream authors to write a fantastic story or two without fear of being labeled a genre author. In fact some of Canada's most distinguished authors, like Margaret Atwood, Robertson Davies and Timothy Findlay, have crossed the border to the fantastic on occasion. Because of these facts, I have veered slightly from my Science Fiction theme and have included fantasy and horror authors in this guide.
