Read full description of the books:
This is a collection of short stories, most of which appeared in Interzone magazine. As with all collections, there are some stories that you love, others you hate, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the whole book.
My favourite story was "The King of the Hill" by Paul J McAuley, set in a future where America has invaded England for our own good! I liked the premise and the mix of Authurian legend appealed. "If The Driver Vanishes..." by Peter Garratt, was also very good, if uncomfortable to read, as its theme was religious fervour. But the ending sentiment is one that stays with you and instantly makes you wonder.
Of all the stories, only 'War and/or Peace' by Lee Montgomerie left me a bit cold - I found the concepts confusing, the story unwieldly and not an enjoyable read in any sense of the word. But all the other stories were worth reading to various degrees.
