About the Series:
“Tesseracts Eleven is an excellent way of keeping a handle on what is current in this type of fiction, at least from a Canadian point of view, and would be of value to both the fan and the budding writer.” - Ronald Hore, reviewer
“Tesseracts Eleven is a very solid anthology, full of enjoyable and thoughtful stories.” - Locus Online
“Kim Goldberg’s poem “Urban Getaway” was a tumble of moving images and Claude Lalumiere’s short story “The Object of Worship” was gripping (although, Lalumiere always writes top-notch stuff – I’ve never read a story of his that wasn’t impressive).” - Bloginhood, Reviewer
“The striking thing about these stories, aside from the fact that they are all really good, is that many of them are very contemporary stories. They could easily take place last month, or a couple of years from now. This book is very much worth the search.” - Dead Trees Review
Tesseracts Eleven received a mention on Elizabeth Now...And Then stating that it was a thought provoking book that would be worth checking out previous Tesseract Anthologies.
