Carol Johnstone. God of the Gaps. (Interzone #238, Jan-Feb 2010).

A story that starts with xeno-monstrosities leaping out of every corridor, with every opening door leading to more horrors. Fortunately, it’s a theme park activity, and a young teacher escorting a pupil is grateful to see the sign to the shop at the end of the ‘ride’. However, they find their way to a museum dedicated to UFOs and alien abductions, and what seems like cheesy fun takes a darker turn. Johnstone’s protagonist provides a darkly comic Glaswegian take on things.
