Tim Reynolds is a Canadian twistorian, bending and twisting history into fictional shapes for sheer entertainment. His humorous non-fiction column in SEARCH Magazine is just as entertaining, but is based strictly on his bizarre, event-filled life.
His latest novel is Waking Anastasia from Tyche Books. It's a tale of death, laughter, and love...in that order, made the Long List for the Edmonton Public Library's Alberta Readers' Choice Award, and was selected by Kobo for the 2018 Royal Wedding Weekend Promotion.
His debut novel, the urban fantasy, The Broken Shield, was released on July 21, 2014 on Amazon as a digital book and has reached as high as #10 in Contemporary Fantasy on Amazon.ca. It became a available in print in early 2015. The Second Edition is now available.
His published short stories can be found gathered together in The Death of God and Other Stories, and range from lighthearted fantasy to turn-on-the-damned-lights-now horror, and include the story of a bus driver who kills all his passengers, Evil fashion advice, a tale of a dying folk singer's moments teaching Death a love song, and a dark, depressing view of the near future of reality TV and child-rearing.
His 100-word story “Temper Temper” was a winner of Kobo Writing Life’s Jeffrey Archer Short Story Challenge, and his short story "Tamarack and the Stone" was a finalist for the 2016 Baen Fantasy Adventure Award, received an Honourable Mention in L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future Contest, and is a featured story in issue #108 of On Spec Magazine. A full-length trilogy is planned based on the short story.
