About John Robert Colombo

John Robert ColomboMr. Colombo is the Toronto-based author and anthologist whose byline has appeared on over 200 books of quality. These range from volumes of poetry to compilations of quotations. Colombo has been variously dubbed: "The Master Gatherer" for his compilations of Canadiana. "John 'Bartlett' Colombo" for his 'quote books. "Canada's Mr. Mystery" for his collections of told-as-true ghost stories. "Superfan" for his pioneering interest in Canadian fantastic literature. Recently Mr. Colombo was the keynote speaker for the Montreal World Science Fiction Convention's academic track. Robert J. Sawyer, co-editor of Tesseracts 6 introduced "JRC." This is part of what he had to say..."John is a towering presence in Canadian letters, a member of the Order of Canada -- Canada's equivalent of knighthood -- and is Canada's premiere folklorist and collector and compiler of Canadiana, as well as a significant poet, broadcaster, editor, and publisher. Although he has 200 books to his credit, it is his six pioneering works in the field of Canadian speculative fiction that we celebrate this weekend, most significantly his massive historical retrospective Other Canadas, published in 1979 -- thirty years ago -- the first-ever anthology of Canadian science fiction and fantasy, a beautiful hardcover gathering 21 fiction pieces and 28 poems drawn from 400 years of Canadian history. Prior to that book, no one had made the case that there was such a thing as Canadian science fiction and fantasy: It was John who proved to Canada's publishers, editors, academics, writers, and readers that the field actually existed. When my wife and I edited Tesseracts 6, we dedicated the book thus: "To John Robert Colombo, whose pioneering Other Canadas blazed the trail for the all the Canadian science fiction and fantasy anthologists who followed."- Robert J Sawyer, Co-editor Tesseracts 6. Colombo has won numerous awards including: Ontario Library Association's Certificate of Merit Periodical Distributors of Canada's Best Paperback of the Year 1976 Centennial Medal, 1967 Esteemed Knight of Mark Twain Order of Cyril and Methodius (1st class) Harbourfront Literary Prize, 1985 D.Litt.
