Read in October, 2010 — I own a copy

Douglas Smith's Chimerascope is a fantastic collection of stories by one of Canada's finest writers. It is a handsome book--Erik Mohr's cover artwork is gorgeous--and the sixteen stories contained within its pages are both wondrous and powerful.

The stories in Chimerascope span a decade of Doug's work and include both fantasy and science fiction, humour and horror, action-packed adventure and quiet meditation. It's impossible for me to pick a favourite from this collection. All of the stories are intelligent, imaginative and finely crafted and all reach with precision perfection deep into the heart of the human condition. Douglas Smith's prowess with the short story form is showcased clearly in this collection.
