After a brief October hiatus for the Toronto SpecFic Colloquium, the ChiSeries is back in swing again with our three delightful November readers, all of them authors from ECW Press!!


New Torontonian and former Winnipegger, Samantha Beiko spends the majority of her life surrounded by books--in addition to writing, she is a tireless independent bookseller, as well as Assistant Managing Editor and Junior Designer at ChiZine Publications. Her first young adult novel, The Lake and the Library, will be out with ECW Press in May 2012. She hopes there is cake.


Joey Comeau is the author of One Bloody Thing After Another, which was nominated for the Shirley Jackson Award and the ReLit Award. He is best known for writing the text of the webcomic A Softer World, which he co-creates with Emily Horne. He lives in Toronto, Ontario.


Liisa Ladouceur is an author, a journalist, a poet, and a Goth. Her non-fiction writing has appeared in major newspapers and magazines including Eye Weekly, The Toronto Sun, Alternative Press and Bust and she has been seen and heard mouthing off about music on CBC Radio and MuchMoreMusic. Her poetry has been published by Burning Effigy Press and Carousel Magazine and she has performed spoken word across North America and in Toronto venues from Harbourfront to the Bloor Cinema to a Cloud Garden. Her first book Encylcopedia Gothica was released autumn 2011 by ECW Press. She still owns a hair crimper.
