High time I got another book out there. So hey, here’s one: Other Times and Places, an anthology of some of my favourite short stories, all but one of which have been published in Canada, Australia, and Greece over the last twenty years.
It’s a slim collection, comprised of just seven tales. Dr. Robert Runte, who edited the collection, was kind enough to provide a Forward as well.
The cover art is courtesy of my daughter Erin Mahoney and graphic artist Jeff Minkevics. Erin drew the platypus and Jeff took care of the rest. Éric Desmarais crafted the interior design.
Other Times and Places is being published by Donovan Street Press. It will be available shortly in all the usual places online, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and so on.
It’s been a fun little project. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Just finished editing and posting the final interview from BookMarkIt! 2019. In this one author David Demchuk tells Mark Askwith the engaging story behind the publication of his Sunburst Award winning novel The Bone Mother.
Here’s the latest BookMarkIt! 2019 video, featuring Mark talking to author and bookseller Pat Flewwelling. Pat also happens to be one of the organizers of BookMarkIt, but she didn’t get to be interviewed because of that. We left all that kind of decision making up to Mark. Mark read one of Pat’s books and decided he wanted to talk to her, completely unaware that she had anything to do with BookMarkIt, other than attending it.
Anyway, like the others, it’s a great interview between two engaging conversationalists.
Gradually getting the interviews and readings from BookMarkIt! this past May edited and posted. Here’s the latest, with Mark Askwith talking to Ira Nayman, author of the Multiverse series of novels, and editor of Amazing Stories magazine, in a really interesting chat about science fiction, humour, how he got into editing, and much, much more.
What could be better than Mark Askwith in conversation with, well, just about anyone?
Not much, in my opinion. (Pizza from the Michael’s Pizzaria in Summerside, PEI, but that’s about it.)
Here’s Mark in an engaging conversation with Sienna Tristen and Avi Silver at BookMarkIt! 2019 this past May. I’ll be posting several more such interviews (and readings) from BookMarkit! over the next month or so, just as soon as I can get them edited. Stay tuned!
