Sybertooth Inc was saddened to learn of the death, on March 7, of long-time CBC announcer and satirist Max Ferguson. Ferguson will be fondly remembered for his Rawhide characters, for The Max Ferguson Show, his other work on television and radio, his Leacock award-winning memoir of the CBC, And Now... Here's Max, and for the wild spirit of irreverence he brought to the national broadcaster, and to Canada.
A public memorial will be held Sunday June 16 2013 at 2:00pm at the Glenn Gould Studio Lobby, CBC Broadcasting Centre, 250 Front St. West, Toronto.
Congratulations to Rae Bridgman, who won a Bronze Medal in the 2011 Moonbeam Childrens Book Awards for her novel Kingdom of Trolls and is shortlisted for the 2012 McNally Robinson Book for Young People Award
Congratulations to K.V. Johansen, for receiving an Honourable Mention in the Ontario Library Association's Best Bets for Children 2011 list for The Black Box.

"Marlowe's stories are detailed, quirky, with a good sense of humour,
but not without some dark, deft touches of horror..."
- Craig Pinhey, Telegraph-Journal, reviewing Ether Frolics
"This collection of nine short stories is a true jaw-dropping jewel of a book..."
- Aly Grauer reviewing Ether Frolics for Doctor Fantastique's Show of Wonders
"Bridgman packs the fantasy with a remarkable amount of information
about Iceland... pen and ink drawings appear throughout the novel
showcasing Bridgman’s considerable talent and creativity...
[she] successfully combines adventure, travel, magic, mystery,
mythology, and history in Kingdom of Trolls to enthral,
educate, and entertain young readers"
- Darleen Golke, CM Magazine
"Better-written than most best-selling kid-spy books, The Black Box will
appeal to fans of adventure stories and to anyone who would love to have
a benign sentient supercomputer at their beck and call."
- Kim Aippersbach, CM Magazine
