This is an anthology dedicated to Candas Jane Dorsey, a Canadian poet, teacher, and science fiction writer. Each author has been touched by her and these are their tributes to her.

Like a magpie, Rhonda Parrish is constantly distracted by shiny things. She’s the editor of many anthologies and author of plenty of books, stories and poems.

She lives with her husband and three cats in Edmonton, Alberta, and she can often be found there playing Dungeons and Dragons, bingeing crime dramas or cheering on the Oilers.

Her website, updated regularly, is at
