152 Augusta Avenue, Toronto  (map)


Spring is in the air: the zombies are rising; the dragons are mating; and the authors are poking their heads out of their holes to test their shadows.


CZP and the Chiaroscuro Reading Series would like to invite you to help us celebrate our own local talent and the talent of Toronto's vibrant spec-fic community by honouring three locally based magazines of speculative fiction who keep the Canadian literary scene vibrant and open to new voices: Chiaroscuro, AE: The Canadian Science Fiction Review, and Ideomancer.


We'll have a night of microreadings from local magazines, comedic performances and other fun, hosted by the dazzling Romeo Satin and featuring:

Jason Taniguchi
David Nickle
Kelly Rose Pflug-Back
Stacy Sinclair
Duff McCourt
Leah Bobet and others...

We'll have a host of micro-readings from the magazines themselves, opportunities to meet the editors of these magazines, and the best part is that all donations from the event will go towards these wonderful magazines!

The Chiaroscuro (

Bringing you the most weird, surreal, subtle, and disturbing dark literary fiction and poetry, the Bram Stoker award-winning Chiaroscuro is a highly successful quarterly webzine founded in 1997 by Brett Savory (In and Down, Brindle and Glass) and Sandra Kasturi (The Animal Bridegroom, Tightrope Books), co-publishers of the highly acclaimed independent press, ChiZine Publications (CZP).

AE - The Canadian Science Fiction Review (

AE is a professional Canadian science fiction magazine with new content every Monday. Named for Canadian SF legend AE Van Vogt, our mission is to engender enthusiasm among Canadian readers and to provide a vibrant market for Canadian science fiction writers.

Ideomancer (

Ideomancer publishes speculative fiction and poetry that explores the edges of ideas; stories that subvert, refute and push the limits. We want unique pieces from authors willing to explore non-traditional narratives and take chances with tone, structure and execution, balance ideas and character, emotion and ruthlessness. We want, in some small way, to illumine the geography of the imagination.
