In addition to established all-stars like Jay Paulin (Super Galactic Space Explorers) and Scott Bartlett (Taking Stock), April’s Sci-Fi from the Rock will feature the initial publication of several soon-to-be well-known Atlantic Canadian authors!
Bringing his short story “The Silence Between Moons,” Engen Books is proud to announce Peter Foote!
Born and raised in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, the son of an apple farmer, Peter Foote studied archaeology in university, is employed as a boiler and refrigeration operator, and runs a used bookstore out of his basement in his spare time.
Believing that an author should write what he knows, many of Peter’s stories are a reflection of his personal life.
“The Silence Between Moons” is Peter’s first published story.
Check out Sci-Fi from the Rock in print and digital formats April 1, 2016 and stay tuned for more announcements!
Our second author to be featured in April 2016’s Sci-Fi from the Rock has been announced: Christopher Walsh, with his short story, “Stealing Back Freedom”!
Christopher Walsh is an author from Brigus South, Newfoundland. Stealing Back Freedom is a prequel story from his fantasy series Gold & Steel, the first, full-length entry of which is titled As Fierce as Steel and is to be released in early 2016.
Over the past four years, Chris has been crafting the massive world of Gold & Steel and putting together what will be his first entries into the even bigger world of publishing: As Fierce as Steel and Stealing Back Freedom.
When not writing, Chris works as an apprentice carpenter and enjoys reading a variety of material with particular interest in other fantasy works. He’s also an avid video gamer and hiker.

I’m giving myself a Holiday present, and that present is a non-Engen characters related post. While there’s no specific rule against this (we’ve all seen Erin Vance’s terrific travel blog) I still tend to limit myself to posts revolving around the site, the novels, and the characters of Engen Books. But everyone deserves to indulge themselves this time of year a little, and this is my indulgence.
(Also it fits the theme of this blog: pondering the future of comic-book movies takes up far, far too much of my time and creative energy. Maybe writing this post can excise some of those thoughts and let me move on to more creative endeavors.)
So, these are my ideas for 5 major (or minor, in many cases) comic book movies, tv shows and original series that will – probably – never happen. But hey: you never know.

Benedict has never been the same since coming home from Iraq but he’s getting better. He’s rejoined the lives of his family, he’s keeping busy with work, he has a kinda-sorta-but-not-really girlfriend and his Netflix queue has just expanded. Everything’s coming up Benedict.
When an evil movie quoting sniper starts taunting him over the phone, Benedict gets worried.
When the sniper starts killing people and leaving items from Benedict’s past at the crime scene, Benedict gets scared.
When his kinda-sorta-but-not-really girlfriend wants to have the relationship talk, Benedict get terrified.
Benedict already misses his TV.
