Michèle Laframboise won the 2006 Solaris Prize for her SF short story "Le vol de l'Abeille" (Flight of the Honey Bee). The story will be published in the next issue of Solaris magazine. (Québec-based science-fiction magazine Solaris is the oldest Canadian SF magazine, in its 32th year of publication.) Michèle will also draw the accompanying illustration.
Michèle's next comic book, "Séance de signatures" (Book Signing) will be published by Fichtre!, a Montréal-based independent comic publisher, next May. Michèle;s last comic book was published in 1997.
Finally, the Ontario Arts Council has granted Michèle a subvention for writing her next novel. "This novel will be aimed at a more mature audience than my previous YA books," Michèle says. "It is the first time in more than 25 years of creation that I get a grant for my work. It is very welcome!"
