Creepy tales! Who knew?
Ottawa writer Barbara Sibbald’s most recent book has been 25 years in the making.
Don’t panic. It’s not a volume on the scale of War and Peace; this is a book of delightful short stories, to be consumed in small, tasty bites.
The Museum of Possibilities took 25 years simply because that was when Sibbald wrote the first story in the collection. “Many were published in small literary magazines, but I had a lot of trouble finding a publisher for a collection back in the mid ’90s and so I gave up,” recalls Sibbald. “The market seemed to be for novels, so that’s what I did instead.” After two novels and an online novel published in this magazine, she came back to short fiction in 2013. Thank goodness she did.
