From The Rock

Engen Books in proud to maintain the tradition of great short fiction and science-fiction published in Canada and has, since it’s inception, been dedicated to bringing the best in short fiction by both young and experienced authors to the printed page. To this end, the From the Rock anthology series has been the venue through which both new and established writing talents have made their ideas available to a wide market.

The series began in 2010 with the anthology title Sci-Fi from the Rock (2010), was followed in 2011 by More Sci-Fi from the Rock, and finally in 2013 with Sci-Fi from the Rock Returns. All are currently out-of-print.

In 2016 the series was rebooted with Sci-Fi from the Rock (2016), under the leadership of editors Ellen Curtis and Erin Vance. The new collection was released in conjunction with the tenth annual Sci-Fi on the Rock convention, and for the first time opened its doors to anyone in Canada who wished to submit.

After the success of Sci-Fi from the Rock 2016, Curtis and Vance announced that the format would become a yearly publication, shifting genres every year. The 2019 volume will be titled Dystopia from the Rock, and will release mid 2019.
