"Two centuries ago, the Lewis and Clark expedition ventured into the unknown to connect the new American nation to the Pacific Northwest, an area now known as Cascadia. They encountered many surprises along the way, and these changed their view of the world. Today, we celebrate humanity's explorations of the new frontiers of space, the environment, technology, the mind, and the human condition. How will we forge into this future where nature meets machine and humanity is forced to choose between being a spiritual element or a living part of technology?"
Cascadia Con put out the call for submissions. And they described response as outstanding. Senior Editor and science fiction author Cris DiMarco personally reviewed eight hundred stories for the anthology. Twenty-five authors and twenty-six pieces were chosen to create the final work.
Northwest Passages is an anthology of speculative fiction, science fiction and fantasy from both new and established authors.
