Latest Review

You may have noticed in my side-bar that I am now reading Fifty-One by Chris Barnham.

 Fifty-One cover

I bumped into the author at Follycon and vaguely remembered his book was on a list for review from Interzone a few months back.

Not knowing whether it had been sent to anyone else I blagged a review copy anyway with the promise of trying to get it into Interzone or else posting about it here.

IZ hadn’t sent it out so I’ve got the gig. The review might even be in the next issue (275) along with Andrew Crumey’s The Great Chain of Unbeing.

It’s a time travel story.

The cover (okay it has a doodlebug, but….) totally misrepresents the contents by the way.

Dundee United 2-0 Dumbarton

SPFL Tier 2, Tannadice Park, 3/4/18.

I wasn’t at the game. I’m still coming down from Eastercon and it was likely I’d be frozen anyway.

It was Dumbarton nil again, too.

Where’s our next goal coming from?
