Book Spotlight: "Paths to the Stars" by Edward Willett

Today we are featuring Paths to the Stars by Edward Willett. This book is a collection of twenty-two of Willett’s award-winning science fiction / fantasy short fiction. Mr. Willett’s book is the first release from the new Regina-based publisher, Shadowpaw Press. Readers will get a reflective look at Willett’s career as he personally introduces each of his stories included in the collection.

About the Book


A young musician dreams of playing his songs among the stars...A Broadway performer on the lam is forced to direct aliens in The Sound of Music...Strange vegetables with dangerous properties crop up in small-town Saskatchewan...A man with a dark secret gets his comeuppance on a windy night on the prairie...An elderly caretaker on the Moon preserves the memory of the millions who died on Earth's darkest day...A woman and a bat-like alien must overcome their own prejudices to prevent an interstellar war...

From the far future and the farthest reaches of space to the Canadian prairie, from our world to worlds that have never existed to world's that might some day, rich realms of imagination and the fascinating characters and creatures that populate them await within these stories, some previously published, some seeing print for the first time.

Paths to the Stars is available to order from bookstores everywhere, including Chapters/Indigo, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble, in paperback and all ebook formats, as well as from the publisher, Shadowpaw Press.
