A collection of 12 short stories by one of Canada’s rising stars of speculative fiction.
Forest takes you from death-bed wishes to the eerie regions of madness employing subtle skill and fresh prose. Nine of the stories have appeared in publications such as Asimov’s, On Spec, Analog, Tesseracts Ten, Tesseracts Eleven, Tesseracts 14, and AE Science Fiction Review. Three of the stories make their debut in this collection, with an introduction by one of Canada’s respected editors and experts, Mark Leslie Lefebvre.
Enjoyable, and an author worth keeping an eye on.
Immunity to Strange Tales is a superb premier collection of short science fiction and fantasy by Canadian author Susan Forest. These intriguing stories are varied in voice and style, spanning years of literary experimentation by the author, and most are told with delightful sophistication.

I can wholeheartedly recommend this collection to anyone who enjoys Sci-Fi and short stories.
