Short Stories

In addition to the Lizzie Saunders Mysteries and The Tattooed Wolf, I’ve written a bunch of short stories that have appeared in anthologies hither and yon. Here’s where you can find them…


In An Unknown Country

“Other Worlds, unfamiliar territory, places we should not be! Wanderers in strange lands and those who have strayed just a little off the path face their fates in an unknown country. A selection of short and flash fiction exploring the unfamiliar, new worlds and new perspectives.”

(Fox Spirit Books, 2016)




The Best of LSQ: The First Five Years

“The writers gathered in these pages, from every corner of the globe, are explorers of wonder, magic, and places beyond the stars. They are also explorers of what makes us human, in heart, mind, and spirit.”

(Luna Station Press, 2015)




The Girl at the End of the World Vol. 2

“Across two volumes, The Girl at the End of the World offers forty-one striking visions of the apocalypse and the women and girls dealing with it. From gods to zombies, from epic to deeply personal, from the moment of impact to a future where life is long forgotten; bestselling authors and exciting new writers deliver tales you’ll still remember when holed up in a fallout shelter with one remaining bullet and a best friend with a suspicious bite mark on their neck.”

(Fox Spirit Books, 2014)



In The Company of Animals

“Animals fascinate us humans, and we relate to them in a variety of ways. Whether we view them as companions, as workmates, as symbols, as totems, or as food, animals matter to us, and we want to tell their stories. In this collection, 38 writers from across Canada tell thought-provoking stories of extraordinary encounters with animals. From tributes to a favourite cat or dog to tales of a chance encounter with a moose or a cougar, the writers cover a wide range of encounters with a wide variety of animals—from rats and salamanders to wolves and bears. These writers are people who pay attention to animals, their natures and personalities and what they can teach us, and they ask us to pay attention too.”

(Nimbus Publishing, 2014)




“Feral, vicious, fierce and lost… the she-wolf is a strange creature of the night. Attractive to some; repulsive to others, she stalks the fringes of our world as though it were her prey. She is the baddest of girls, the fatalest of femmes – but she is also the excluded, the abject, the monster.

The Wolf-Girls within these pages are mad, bad and dangerous to know. But they are also rejected and tortured, loving and loyal, avenging and triumphant. Some of them are even human…”

(Hic Dragones Press, 2012)



100 Stories for Queensland

“100 Stories for Queensland is a charity anthology created to assist the victims of the 2010-2011 Queensland floods. All profits from the sale of the anthology are donated to the Queensland Premier’s Relief Appeal.”

(emergent Press, 2011)



She’s Shameless Anthology

“With wit and honesty, the writers share stories of their teen experiences (both positive and negative) on everything from pop culture to high school principals. The book is founded on Shameless magazine’s tradition of smart, sassy, honest and inclusive writing that reaches out to young female readers who are often ignored by mainstream: freethinkers, queer youth, young women of colour, punk rockers, feminists, intellectuals, artists and activists.”

(Tightrope Books, 2009)




“With Fabulist and New Wave Fabulist stories by 44 literary and genre authors, the anthology explores non-realistic artistic fiction that reviewers called ‘bold, haunting, and remarkable’”.

(OmniDawn Press, 2006)




“Bannerman writes in a very clean style of prose, but every so often she’ll turn a phrase so striking that is almost poetry.” – Frank Zafiro, author of The Last Horseman, Waist Deep, and the River City Crime series.

“Bannerman offers a clear insight into the mind of a tyrannical sociopath.” – Scott Sandridge, Tangent Short Fiction Review
