In the past week I’ve read the Fiction Special issue of Focus that included the winning stories from the BSFA short story competition. I particularly enjoyed Andrew West’s Rescue Stories.
I also finished Jupiter XXIV and found Andrew Knighton’s Our Man in Herrje especially entertaining.
Is it just a coincidence that both authors are called Andrew?
I’ve also just about finished Bernard Beckett’s Genesis, the shortest novel I think I’ve ever seen published, which makes a refreshing change. I’ll be writing a review of this, to go with my reviews of Eclipse Two and Interzone #221 in next month’s SF Crowsnest.
