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

Available at all the usual venues:




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." (Angie Abdou, CBC Daybreak)

"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)

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

"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)
