"corvus" by harold johnson featured in cbc list: the five sci-fi novels you should read right now

Shelagh Rogers interviews author Peter Kavanagh on his picks for the five Canadian sci-fi novels that must be read, featuring Corvus and lauding its ability to mix science fiction, politics, and philosophy.

"What’s really interesting about Corvus is that it takes place in this period of time where sometimes science appears magical, sometimes the science appears real, but what the story is all about is a number of individuals who live in Lac La Ronge and who are struggling to find a way of how to understand being human."
