Canadian Semiprozine, published and edited by Glenn Grant of London, Ontario (for the first two issues; Montreal, Quebec for the third issue) which saw three letter-size issues in Summer 1988, Summer 1989 and Summer 1991, all three computer-typeset. The magazine sought to develop experimental fiction beyond the Cyberpunk revolution and included work by Paul Di Filippo and Rudy Rucker in the first issue, Keith Brooke in the second issue and Lyle Hopwood in the third, amongst others. There was also a comic strip by Grant himself under the alias "Genetic Lunarian" and, starting in the third issue, a column, "Stone Cold Sober" by Charles Platt. The gaps between issues and the short run meant the magazine never fully established itself, though it demonstrated Grant's desire to push sf to unusual extremes for Canada, and for that it left its mark.
