Fellow author Joe Mahoney has been kind enough to host me on his website, Assorted Nonsense. This is the second stop in my blog tour for Dreams of the Moon. As always I offer the introduction to the collection of short stories, and also for each guest appearance I offer some insight into one of the stories: how the story came to be.
Joe Mahoney is the author of the time travel novel A Time and a Place.
His short fiction has been published in Canada, Australia and Greece, and he’s been nominated three times for an Aurora Award, one of Canada’s top awards for science fiction and fantasy, for his work on CBC Radio. He is a member of SF Canada, Canada’s National Association of Speculative Fiction Professionals.
He has also worked as a story editor on multiple radio, television and film projects including CBC Radio’s Steve the First and Steve the Second, both seasons of Canadia: 2056, Canadian author and filmmaker Susan Rodger’s feature film Still the Water, and more.
He currently works full-time for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, where, for over more than three decades, he has worked in several roles including recording engineer, producer, and several operational management roles.
His second book, a collection of seven short stories entitled Other Times and Places, was published by Donovan Street Press in January 2020.
He lives in Whitby, Ontario with his wife and two daughters, and their golden retriever and Siberian forest cat.
