The Ottawa Object

Description

In 1924, images were taken at an observatory in Ottawa that appeared to reveal a wandering point of light in the night sky. Despite exhaustive searching for what was believed to be a trans-Neptunian planet, nothing was ever found. It seems to me that this hopeful searching — the yearning to know more about our surroundings — is one of the fundamental impulses of human beings. Just as fundamental, however, is the sense that this search must remain unfulfilled.

The Ottawa Object is a literary journal that will attempt to capture the feeling of this yearning. It will publish short speculative fiction and audacious literary fiction. It contains stories that explore human striving from shifting perspectives. It’s a print journal that comes out twice per year.
