Young Bos has lost an arm, which is bummer for this dude, but he has bud Jimeo and Jimeo’s girlfriend Cleo to help out.
The Individual Stories category has two types of content : 1 – the stories I read in magazines and anthologies and review straight away, rather than waiting to complete the magazine or anthology and reviewing it all in one go. I started doing this in 2010; 2 – stories published as standalone ‘chapbooks’, or published online, or otherwise as a singleton. There are a couple of dozen stories of this nature, reviewing during the 2000s, which are available here.
A short but clever piece from Kosmatka, with mammoths returned to Earth.
A patriarchal society, with aliens with two sets of arms, and some strange names, and some issues around gender around childbirth, and attitudes towards multiple births.
A love story on an epic scale.
A reflection on what will happen to the individual self when bodies can be swopped at a whim.
A fast-paced adventure, with an intriguing background.
Good to read something just that bit different, and intense.
Well-written, subtle bit of writing.
