Shortly after Jason Christie headlined at the September 2006 Olive, i-ROBOT (Edge/Tesseract) went viral. That a poetry manuscript had been picked up by one of Canada’s pre-eminent sci-fi publishers signalled i-ROBOT was something distinct in Canadian literature.
Two years later, i-ROBOT continues to challenge us as readers and writers to think about what is possible in literature and to push ourselves into these remote spaces. i-ROBOT has received a great deal of critical acclaim and has since been interpreted/animated by Lisa Mann with Curtis Wehrfritz (with Frantic Films) and Janice Blaine (with Justyn Perry).
We are very proud to have had Jason read for our little series and thankful he has agreed to let us publish Like Wolves online—the complimentary chapbook we made for his reading two years ago.
