Prize-Winner JRH Lawless announced as a Flights from the Rock author!

Engen Books is proud to announce that JRH Lawless, winner of the February 2019 Kit Sora Flash Fiction Prize, is bringing his story ‘The White Bird Dives’ to the Flights from the Rock anthology.

J.R.H. Lawless writes Science Fiction full of dark humour and hope, set in a consistent Universe.

Lawless is a multiple award-winning Canadian SF author who blends comedy with political themes — drawing heavily, in both cases, on his experience as a lawyer and as Secretary General of a Parliamentary group at the French National Assembly. A member of SFWA and Codex Writers, his short fiction has been published in professional venues, and most recently in the Third Flatiron Press Terra! Tara! Terror! anthology, to great reviews, placement as 2018 Recommended Reading, and an award for Best Positive Future Story 2018.

Lawless is also a craft article contributor to the SFWA blog, the SFWA Bulletin, and

Lawless’ tale recounts the story of L’Oiseau Blanc, a historically famous lost plane. Editor Lisa Daly states: “I adore this story. Mind you, I would also like to search for L’Oiseau Blanc (I have the beginnings of theories). This story is well-researched and gripping. Even knowing the plane was lost, I wanted to keep reading and find out how it would happen.”
