Star attraction

Today's Winnipeg Free Press -- the major daily newspaper in Winnipeg, Manitoba -- has a great article about the upcoming Thin Air: Winnipeg International Writers Festival, which begins next week. The article, by Books section editor Morley Walker, observes, "The star attraction this year is arguably science-fiction novelist Robert J. Sawyer."

That's why I love being a science-fiction writer in Canada. In the US, a science-fiction writer is lucky to be allowed to buy a ticket to attend a literary festival; in Canada, we're celebrated as the stars of such festivals.

Morley Walker did a major profile of me in the Free Press earlier this year; you can read it here.
