Langan closes an excellent anthology with a strong, albeit dark and bleak (although ultimately human) story.
You’ll find all the latest Reviews across Best SF gathered here.
Socio-economic apocalypse being the order of the day, with borders in the USA closed and states wary of their neighbours.
A story that gets increasingly macabre as it unfolds…
A really strong story from O’Connell that will appear in some Year’s Best volumes next year, and which I’m putting into the pot for consideration for the Best SF Short Story Award 2014
An excellent story that packs a lot into four pages.
Fairly routine story about a young boy and his grandma coming up against an, ahem, Bad Dude who would have got away with it if it wasn’t for the pesky did
A neat story that starts with ‘It was a dark and story night’…
Another strong volume in an excellent series.
