|Edge Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing is a new
small press publisher in Calgary Alberta. Their first book was published in 2000
Black Chalice by Canadian author, Marie
Jakober. It won first place for The Independent Publisher
Book Award and was shortlisted
for a 2001 Sunburst Award.
Edge has since become a much bigger publisher. In August of 2003 at
the Torcon Worldcon, Edge announced that they had acquired Tesseract
Books. In his press
release, publisher Brian Hades said that “The purchase of
Tesseract Books Ltd. enables us to continue the production of quality
speculative fiction with a ‘Canadian twist’". He promised that
the Tesseract imprint would remain "the premiere voice of Canadian
speculative fiction". Award winning authors Candace
Jane Dorsey and Timothy J.
Anderson continue to be involved with the Tesseract imprint as
authors and editors.

For Life, For Love, For Liberty
