Urban fantasy lit and graphic novels
So, this last weekend -- October 4th, 5th, and 6th -- I was in Ottawa for Can-Con: The Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature which was, in 2013, hosting Canvention 33. Now, because there's been some confusion, this is how it goes: Can-Con is a yearly Ottawa convention and has been a yearly Ottawa convention since at least 1992.

Asta Eicher and her three children (Grethe, Hart, and Annabel) were murdered by Powers, but the case for which he was tried was the death of Dorothy Lemke, whose remains were also found on land owned by Powers. Phillips’s central character, a woman reporter, is richly invented to convey the pathos of the women victimized by Powers.
