About David Hull
It was around age 13 or 14, while immersed in the short stories of Analog and F&SF, and devouring an Asimov or Bradbury or Ballard book every couple of days, that it dawned on David Hull that this is what he would be: a writer. He was publishing poems and stories in Canadian literary magazines a decade or so later - not quite the science fiction he'd envisioned; but the future is never quite what we think it will be.
Born in Regina, raised in Ottawa and Owen Sound, David Hull now lives and writes in Toronto.
"A Chekhovian 'Ward No 6' for the new millennium. Beautifully executed, hypnotic shape-shifter." - Christine Fischer Guy, author of The Umbrella Mender
Daniel Hale will not be released from an institution until he renounces his belief in a celestial body he calls the moon. Fortunately his doctor, Marvin Pallister, is confident that Daniel can be cured of his condition, soon dubbed Hale-Pallister's Lunacy.
"Thoroughly satisfying." - The Globe and Mail (11/27/2015)
"A superb story... an ongoing series of surprising revelations/suppositions — surprising, yet satisfying within the rollercoaster logic of its world." - Matthew Sharpe, author of The Sleeping Father and Jamestown
A virtuoso vanishing act, a puzzle in die-cut pieces, and at heart a meditation on longing and loss, The Man Who Remembered the Moon is a cerebral yet witty study for fans of Paul Auster, Italo Calvino, David Mitchell and others who skirt the borders of fictional reality.
Allen Smythe’s first week on staff is not going well. He’s been falsely accused of a crime (which he may have accidentally committed), falsely accused of indiscretion with a student by his ex (is it his fault if she’s infatuated?), embarrassed by his hated rival, and shaken by rumours that his beloved mentor may retire. But he remains hopeful. Surely a philosophy department is composed of rational beings, governed by the deep deliberations they bring to bear on their actions.
Then a shocking death throws the faculty into chaos and casts Allen into the most treacherous of all dimensions: the moral one.
A raucous comedy that takes a dark turn into the past, The Realm of Means gives us a man trying hard to remember why we’re supposed to be good, caught between hope and doubt, silence and betrayal—in the space between means and ends.
