Winnipeg, April 1, 2016—Ravenstone, an imprint of Turnstone Press, is proud to announce that for the third time Chadwick Ginther has been shortlisted for the Prix Aurora Award for his final installment in the Thunder Road Series, Too Far Gone.
In the action-packed conclusion to the series, Ted Callan hitches a ride back to Edmonton for his best friend’s wedding and to search for answers. While he's there he tries to mend fences with family and friends, dodges a legion of Surtur fanatics intent on setting the giant Surtur free, and learns he has three days left to live. It's the end of the world as Ted knows it—time to face his doom.
Originally from Morden, Manitoba, Chadwick Ginther is the winner of The Mary Scorer Award for Best Book by a Manitoba Publisher, the winner of The Michael Van Rooy Award for Genre Fiction and thrice nominated for the Prix Aurora Awards for Thunder Road, Tombstone Blues, and Too Far Gone. His short stories have appeared in many speculative fiction publications, and he co-hosts the Winnipeg arm of the Chiaroscuro Reading Series. A bookseller for over a decade, Chadwick Ginther lives and writes in Winnipeg.
