About Élisabeth Vonarburg

Élisabeth Vonarburg is considered one of Canada's most accomplished Science Fiction writers.

Born in France in 1947, she immigrated to Canada in 1973 and taught French Literature and Writing at various universities in Quebec. More recently, she has been actively involved in the speculative fiction community as a translator, convention organizer, literary editor, and writer.

Her novels include The Silent City, Reluctant Voyagers and In the Mothers’ Land (published as The Maërlande Chronicles), the latter winning the Philip K. Dick Special Award in 1993. She has also received over thirty literary awards in France, Canada, and the US, including the 1998 Prix du Conseil québécois de la Femme en littérature, a one-time literary award given by the Quebecois Council for Women’s Affairs on its twentieth anniversary. Her five book series Tyranaël, received three major awards in Quebec: Dreams of the Sea and A Game of Perfection are English translations of the first two books in the acclaimed series. [MORE]


Praise:

“Vonarburg’s prose is sensual and measured, richly descriptive...present attractive worlds that are at once familiar and exotic...” — Paul de Fillipo, Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine

“Glorious, lush novel, very dreamlike indeed.” — Nalo Hopkinson, author of Brown Girl in the Ring

“... sinuous, highly sensuous prose, with a leisurely, attention to sensory wonders...a work of impressive subtlety and rigor ...” — George Feeley, Washington Post
