Fiction Acquisitions Announcement

Catherine Bush’s Danger Due To acquired by Bethany Gibson at Goose Lane Editions

Goose Lane Editions is thrilled to announce that acclaimed writer Catherine Bush’s forthcoming short-story collection, Danger Due To, has been acquired by our fiction acquisitions editor Bethany Gibson.  The book is scheduled for publication in Spring 2025.

“I am so gratified to be working with Catherine again, to publish this standout piece of writing — writing that exemplifies the trademark precision and intelligence of her work, while also striding into new literary territory in a deeply moving way,” said Bethany Gibson.

Danger Due To is a bold collection of realist and speculative stories plunging into the vortex of all that shapes us: relationships between people and between the human and more-than-human, viruses, climate and ecological crises and more.

Says publisher Susanne Alexander, “It’s such a delight to work with Catherine — and, in this instance, we’re looking forward to introducing her short fiction to readers for the first time. I have no doubt that they will be as entranced as we are.”

Catherine Bush was represented in the deal by Samantha Haywood at Transatlantic Agency (North American English).

Catherine Bush is the author of five novels. Her work has been critically acclaimed, published internationally, and shortlisted for literary awards. Her most recent novel, Blaze Island (Goose Lane Editions, 2020), was a Globe and Mail and Writers’ Trust of Canada Best Book of the Year and the Hamilton Reads 2021 Selection. Accusation (Goose Lane Editions, 2013) was one of NOW Magazine’s Best Ten Books of 2013, an Best Book, and a Canada Reads Top 40 pick. Claire’s Head (McClelland & Stewart, 2004) was shortlisted for Ontario’s Trillium Award and was a Globe and Mail Best Book of the Year. The Rules of Engagement (HarperCollins, 2000) was a national bestseller and chosen as a New York Times Notable Book and a Globe and Mail Best Book of the Year. Minus Time (HarperCollins,1993), her first novel, was shortlisted for the Books in Canada / SmithBooks First Novel Award and the City of Toronto Book Award.

Congratulations Catherine!
