Andre Farant


I studied English Literature at Carleton University. Since then I have developed an indescribably aimless resume.

I have worked as a security guard, a Court Services Officer, a model, an actor, a teacher of English as a second language, a project coordinator for an NGO, and a Research Officer with the Government of Canada.

I have eaten whale in Iceland, live octopus in South Korea, and beaver tail in Canada.

I am a working writer and have had pieces published in Micro Horror, Weird Year, The Midwest Literary Magazine, and the “Off Season” anthology.

I currently reside in Montreal, Quebec.

Smashwords book reviews by Andre Farant

  • The Lost Moments on Dec. 18, 2011

    A sweet, well-crafted thank you note to the people who, in most cases, matter most.
  • Firebird on March 23, 2012

    Not bad at all. Stylistically, it's maybe a tad rough, but Firebird is a quick, fun read and, hey c'mon, who can argue with space zombies?
  • Sludge on March 23, 2012

    A fair amount of tension crammed into a small space, like sludge in a drain… Well done.
