Never read alone. We have spine-tingling thrillers for even the most seasoned crime readers. In a special night of unnerving fiction, authors Tyrell Johnson (The Wolves of Winter), Sheena Kamal (The Lost Ones), Nathan Ripley (Find You in the Dark), and Sam Wiebe (Cut You Down) share tales of survival in a frozen dystopia, a mother’s search for her runaway daughter, a detective hobbyist with a penchant for digging up bodies, and a Vancouver PI in the thick of downtown corruption. We’re sure you’ll be as enthralled as you will be thrilled, so RSVP early, and bring a friend—this is certain to be a night of hair-raising fiction!

Incite is a FREE event, but registration is required:


Presented by the Vancouver Writers Fest with support from the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association and the Vancouver Courier.
