The City

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada is the city which has, indirectly or directly, influenced every author in The Shadow Over Portage & Main:  Local artists have documented the city in works like My Winnipeg and Stuck in the Middle: Dissenting Views of Winnipeg, but this anthology is the first to interpret the city in terms of horror literature.

Since there is horror here, and since the horror cannot be stopped, since hope is gone and the world is a nightmare of chaos, we must be in Winnipeg.
–Jonathan Ball, Preface to The Shadow Over Portage and Main
