Tesseracts 15: A Case of Quite Curious Tales
edited by Julie Czerneda and Susan MacGregor
Edge Publishing, $15.95, 271pp
Release Date: September 15, 2011

This anthology of fantasy, science fiction and horror writings by all Canadian authors is different from one volume to the next. The prior volume had the theme of dark fantasy, while this new volume has a theme of young adult, or YA, fiction. This is not to say that the stories can't be profound. Rather, one can expect more inspiration and happier endings in this volume. For example, there is the delightful story "A+ Brain" by Katrina Nicholson. A high school senior gets a brain transplant to upgrade his intelligence and get ready for college. Of course, the youth must have kept some of his original brain to be able to tell the tale and remember his identity. This story is soothing therapy for any of us who felt social isolation the smarter we became. Oh, I guess that means most readers of speculative fiction. You can be young or adult to get benefit from and simply enjoy these stories. ~~ Mike Griffin
