Welcome to the Canadian Speculative Fiction List.
The CSFL is a free online resource for Canadian fiction and non-fiction published from 2011 onward (if you’re looking for a list of Canadian works published prior to 2011 I suggest trying the Canadian SF Works Database). The list is maintained by Michael Matheson and was originally started as a way to help provide information about works eligible for nomination in the 2012 Aurora Awards (the annual Canadian speculative fiction awards).
The list originally appeared on the Friends of the Merril Short Story Contest website, but has since migrated here, and its mandate has shifted slightly. While it is still a resource for works eligible for nomination in the Aurora Awards, the list is now an attempt to catalogue as much relevant Canadian speculative fiction content as possible going forward.
The original list was organized a little differently, but I’m trying something new on this site. You can send any feedback concerning the site, or information to be included/amended, to Michael Matheson at email@example.com.
Most of the site is now up and running, and the 2012 lists are well underway. If you’re looking for periodic updates, you’ll need to check the Recent Posts widget on the right navbar for update posts as this front page is static. And please keep sending in any relevant information you have so we can fill out the lists and make sure everyone gets appropriate representation (and credit) for their work.
