The Emily Chesley Reading Circle

The Emily Chesley Reading Circle is a group of Canadian writers who have perpetrated a hoax based upon the creation of a fictional writer from the Victorian era (who lived in their hometown of London, Ontario), whose writings predate many of the important SF and fantasy works of the 20th century.

They sponsor an annual literary contest called the Tundra Prize devoted to humorous speculative fiction.It is given to the author of the best piece of short fiction that emulates -- or is inspired by -- the style of Emily Chesley, the organization's fictional namesake.
