Always fascinated by any kind of writing, Keith Cadieux has studied everything from medieval to postcolonial literature, horror and weird fiction, and even narrative in video games, before finally receiving a Master of Arts in creative writing from the University of Manitoba. His debut novella, Gaze, is told through the journal of someone who has discovered a psychomanteum, a mirror-lined room once used to channel spirits of the dead. Gaze was shortlisted for a Manitoba Book Award and long-listed for a 2010 ReLit Award. His most recent fiction has just appeared in Grain, and is forthcoming in the Exile Book of New Canadian Noir. Cadieux lives in Winnipeg.
