Book Spotlight: Dead North and The Man who Folded Himself

Posted by [email protected] on June 29, 2014 at 9:10 PM

About a month and a half ago I attended Key-con, a convention with various sci-fi authors in attendance. I purchased 2 books will there, Dead North edited and signed by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and The Man Who Folded Himself written and Signed by David Gerrold.


Dead North is an assortment of short stories about zombies in Canada. Written by Canadian Authors, set in Canadian towns/cities and many based on canadian folklore. It was quite interesting and enjoyable reading each authors take on the zombie myth. I particularly enjoyed the stories that assimilated zombies into native american culture. It's a great introduction to many different authors.

The Man Who Folded Himself is about a man who recieves a belt that allows him to travel through time, he uses it to meet himself in the past and future. David Gerrold, the author, also wrote episodes for the Twilight Zone. The book does give off a Twilight Zone vibe with it asking alot of what ifs. What if I was born a different gender, got rid of christianity, fell in love with myself, stopped a war etc.
