Joe Who?

Joe Mahoney

I’m a writer/broadcaster currently working full-time for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. 

My first novel, A Time and a Place, was published in October 2017 by Five Rivers Press.

My short fiction has been published in Canada, Australia and Greece, and I’ve been nominated twice for an Aurora Award, one of Canada’s top awards for science fiction and fantasy, for my work on CBC Radio.

I live in Whitby, Ontario with my wife and two daughters, and our golden retriever and Siberian forest cat.

A Time and a Place

Book cover - A Time and a Place

Barnabus’s nephew is behaving oddly.

Calling upon Doctor Humphrey for assistance has not been particularly helpful, because the good doctor’s diagnosis of demonic possession is clearly preposterous. Even the demon currently ensconced on the front room couch agrees it’s preposterous. But then, how else to explain the portal to another world through which his nephew and Humphrey have just now disappeared? Barnabus knows their only chance of rescue is for Barnabus J. Wildebear himself to step up and go through that portal.

Thus begins an existential romp across space and time, trampling on Barnabus’ assumptions about causality, freewill, identity, good and evil. Can Barnabus save his nephew—and incidentally, all of humanity?

    Used to love the CBC, was a fan for over thirty years. Now i don’t trust it one iota. It has become a repeater station for the American mainstream media, parroting sound bites which always contain some sort of political angle. There is major collusion to suppress dissenting opinions and CBC is in the thick of it. It is now illegal to comment negatively about immigrants in Sweden, punishable by incarceration. I think the term cultural suicide was the term applied to their situation. But you won’t find CBC reporting anything except how evil Trump is. Even the 24 newspaper will print a fair intelligent debate about issues. CBC is not alone, CTV ,Global , every tv/radio broadcast spins the same yarn.

  5. Well, thanks for dropping by and criticising my place of employment on my birthday, Richard. 🙂


  6. Hi Joe..Really enjoy your stories about working as a tech for CBC radio in Toronto..In particular, the old studios on Jarvis Street.I remember watching a tv special about CBC radio before the move to the new building on Front Street way back in the late 80’s or early 90’s….Do you remember that special?..Do you know if it’s still available online somewhere?
