Christopher Gorman — Author
An absolutely amazing event hosted by publisher Dark Dragon Publishing at Toronto's Midtown Pub.
This unique anthology features New York Times Best-Selling Author Rosemary Edghill, with a brand new Bast novella, resurrecting her protagonist Karen Hightower from her trilogy: Bell, Book, and Murder.
Dreaming The Goddess is a unique anthology in which the Goddess, in many of her myriad guises, are explored through the creation of new stories destined to become new mythology.
Experience the Goddess in Her many guises, from Egypt to Nigeria, from Europe to the UK, from the Middle East to North America.
The event featured amazing readings by the wonderful Moira Scott, James Dick, Stephen B. Pearl, Ira Nayman, and myself.
Made extra special by the fact that a week later Omicron hit in force and events like these were *sigh* canceled once again.
The first ever Story Origin and Dark Helix Press reading event featuring BIPOC/LGBTQ/Female writers!
This is held in parallel to this Story Origin book giveaway, visit this page to download books for free from all authors doing readings. We hope that you enjoy these the stories as read by these awesome authors as we all strive to entertain ourselves during the continuous COVID lockdowns!

My hands dig into the air like a shovel, and I feel another surge of energy fly out of them. The earth below my feet buckles and thrusts upward, slowing the car immediately. More and more earth piles until the car shudders to a stop.
I stare at it for a moment, slightly amazed that I’m not dead. At the same time, I’m certain that I am and that this is my dying dream. Through a haze of confusion, I see people running toward me. I feel Caitlin’s gaze upon me, but when I look for her, I can’t see her in the crowd. Who is she?
I hear sirens blaring loudly as they approach. I catch a glimpse of the man and woman from my dream as they make their way toward me. Do they mean to help me? Do they know what’s happened? The world goes dark as I collapse into a heap on the ground.
This one had me hooked from the very first chapter! The storytelling and imagery in this book makes you feel like you might be magic as well! Can't wait for the second book to see where this story goes next!
