What are you in the mood for? It doesn’t matter because you’ll get it with this release.
The author, John Paul Catton, is British, so I’ll put this in terms he can understand. This is a blinding book. I was chuffed with it.
In all seriousness, this is a really well-done series of short stories. Each one is almost completely different, so if you didn’t know better you’d swear it was all written by different people. Catton writes in a variety of styles, meaning you’re sure to find something you like here.
My personal favorite is a World War I story that could easily have been taken from Doctor Who.
There are also stories about a Mod futurist detective, cutthroat cannibals, a video-game doll house, and so much more.
I don’t claim to understand everything on offer here (particularly the video-game doll house), but I don’t have to. If you’re a sci-fi fan, you’ve got to give this a read. I officially classify this a hidden gem. I hadn’t even heard of Catton until this, but I have a feeling he’s going to become quite well-known. Lord knows he deserves to.
Still not convinced? Then I have three words for you: Stigmata Skin Graft. Now you have to read it to find out just what on Earth I’m talking about.
