His novel, Ventus, was a "New York Times Notable Book". Karl also co-wrote The Complete Idiots Guide to Publishing SF with fellow Canadian Cory Doctorow. Karl's latest novel, Permanence won the 2003 Prix Aurora Award for best long-form work in English and made the short list for a 2003 Sunburst Award.
