The Lighthouse Keeper's Wife

I can now announce that my short story, The Lighthouse Keeper's Wife, will appear in Tesseracts 17: Speculating Canada From Coast to Coast to Coast, coming this autumn from Edge Publishing.   Here's the release I was e-mailed this morning:

We are pleased to announce the official Table of Contents for Tesseracts 17: Speculating Canada from Coast to Coast to Coast.
This anthology of speculative Canadian writing will be out this fall from Edge Publications. It was no easy task choosing from the over 450 submissions and we had to turn away many a good tale. In the end, we have a representation of Canada that spans all provinces and territories (with the exception, alas, of Nunavut). The tales themselves reach far into the past and much farther into the future.
