OVERVIEW: A collection of nine stories from one of the rising stars of British genre fiction; stories that slip effortlessly between science fiction and dark, humanesque fantasy, examining the gaps between reality and the spaces that hide within us all. Includes the BSFA Award-shortlisted “The Assistant”, and two stories wholly original to this volume.
“Intelligent, ingenious, often funny, and told with an easy and down to earth style.”
““The Assistant” is a brilliantly inventive saga of techno-enhanced cleaners…” SFX, April 2009.
“Standouts include Ian Whates’ “Shop Talk”, in which a young woman deals with xenophobia…” Publishers Weekly, May 2009.
“And perhaps the cleverest story in the book, “Shop Talk” by Ian Whates… van Vogt’s “The Weapon Shops of Isher” for the sensibilities of the modern day.” Analog, October 2009.
