Book launch at Toronto's Ad Astra

Join us for the launch of A Small and Remarkable Life, the first novel by Hugo and World Fantasy Award finalist Nick DiChario, at Ad Astra, Toronto's annual science-fiction convention, Friday, March 31, at 8:00 p.m. in the Reflections Room of the Crowne Plaza Toronto Don Valley Hotel, 1250 Eglinton Avenue East.

We'll also be celebrating the second anniversary of Robert J. Sawyer Books. Bakka-Phoenix will be on-hand to sell copies, and we'll also be unveiling the trade-paperback reissues of our earlier titles by Marcos Donnelly and Andrew Weiner. Refreshments will be served.

"With a persistence and sensitivity worthy of his quirky hero, DiChario quietly explores the big questions: faith, love, hope, and the true nature of reality. A must for everyone who cares about good fiction." -- Hugo Award-winner Nancy Kress

"I've been waiting a long time for this book. Hell, everyone has been waiting a long time for this book." -- Nebula Award-winner Mike Resnick, from his introduction

"Nick DiChario has the uncanny ability to evoke strangeness from the commonplace and to make the small loom large indeed. Here is a deeply moral science fiction novel that will appeal to readers of all persuasions." -- Hugo Award-winner James Patrick Kelly

Robert J. Sawyer Books is the science-fiction imprint of Red Deer Press, a Fitzhenry & Whiteside company.
