Phyllis Gotlieb -- how cool is that!

I am honoured and thrilled to have just acquired the latest novel by Phyllis Gotlieb for my Robert J. Sawyer Books imprint.

In the 1960s, Phyllis was the only significant Canadian science fiction writer; in a profile of her in Maclean's, I was quoted as calling her "the grandmother of us all." Her most-recent book was Mindworlds, published by Tor; her first novel was Sunburst, after which the Canadian award for fantastic literature is named.

Phyllis's new novel is Birthstones, and it is a wonderful far-future, off-Earth, spaceships-and-aliens novel set in Gotlieb's famed Galactic Federation. We'll be releasing it in the spring of next year.

Excellent, Rob! As a fan of Phyllis's work, I'm looking forward to this one.
