"Unlike anything else out there. Nouns push against verbs in ways we've never seen." ( Mike Resnick, Hugo Award-winning author of Kirinyaga )








A CBC pick for "34 works of Canadian fiction to watch for this fall" (2019)

"Surreal, druggy, hallucinogenic. A truly original writer. A name to watch for." (Canada Reads finalist Angie Abdou, CBC Daybreak)

"If Arctic Smoke were a movie, only David Lynch could direct it." (Philip Elliot, Arthur Ellis Award-winning author of Nobody Move)

"Arctic Smoke is a punk rock fever dream. Like Bruce McDonald channelling Anna Kavan, Schroeder’s prose hotwires your brain and takes you on a surreal joyride through arcane Canadiana."(Greg Rhyno, author of To Me You Seem Giant)

"Arctic Smoke is a wintry and psychedelic elegy to that special Albertan brand of despair. An absurdist punk-rock adventure through counter-counterculture’s most otherworldly spaces. Schroeder writes with urgency and grace, vividly describing a zombie capitalist wasteland where the strange becomes familiar and the familiar strange. Read this book." (Mike Thorn, author of Darkest Hours)

"Seriously weird." (Donna McMahon, SF Site Reviews)

"So fucking weird!" (Sandra Kasturi, World Fantasy Award winner)
