“Oh, WOW. I just learned that TRIPTYCH has been nominated for a CBC Bookie award.About the Bookies:
Last year, CBC Books introduced the CBC Bookie Awards, the “people’s choice” of Canadian literary awards. Readers across the country cast their votes for their favourite science fiction, mystery books, graphic novels, literary fiction, short story collections and more. It’s one year later, and the Bookies are back and bigger than ever!
When you click the link below, you’ll find five nominees in this year’s 10 categories. The finalists were chosen by CBC’s book-loving producers at CBC Books, Canada Reads, Writers & Company, The Next Chapter and more, with consideration given to your recommendations online. The finalists represent our favourite Canadian reads (with the exception of the two new International categories) published between January 1, 2011, and December 31, 2011.
This is a Reader’s Choice award, so it means a lot of people have already nominated it. I am always hesitant to solict votes and nominations, but I think it’s BRILLIANT that a small press from Alberta has a book on a major Canada-wide award poll. Please, share this webpage, and vote for your favourites.
Please spread the word!
A novel about intergalactic culture shock, accidental time travel, and choosing to love in the face of intolerance.

“If Ms. Frey continues to do with science fiction what she’s done in this book she might single-handedly be credited with reviving the entire genre.” –Todd McCaffrey, The Dragonriders of Pern series
“Time travel, aliens, and the politics of sexuality combine with tragic violence in Frey’s deeply satisfying debut.”
-Publisher’s Weekly, Starred Review; named one of the Best Books of 2011
