Notable Reviews

“…The introduction of First Nations traditions, family ties, and cultural experiences to these recognizable sci-fi scenarios offers new insights into the human condition, and that’s what good sci-fi is all about…Enjoyable, engaging tales…It’s absolutely wonderful stuff. Take Us to Your Chief is sci-fi with heart, storytelling done right.”

Included in CBC Books’ Indigenous Book Club Month recommendations, June 27, 2017

Notable Reviews

“When I first read it, Richard Van Camp's The Lesser Blessed struck me as a quintessential telling of the young Indigenous experience. All these years later, I still believe that. The protagonist, Larry, is one of the richest and most genuine characters I've ever read in fiction. His dreams and desires compel you to adore him, while the struggles he's endured in his short life invoke deep empathy… It profoundly resonated with me…”
~ Waubgeshig Rice, recommendation for CBC Books’ Indigenous Book Club Month, June 2017
