K.J. Kabza. The Ramshead Algorithm. (Fantasy & Science Fiction, Jul/Aug 2011)

cover by Maurizio ManzieriAn author new to me, and one whose vibe is in tune with my own. There are some neat stylistic touches in the story, which follows a young man, at first carrying out work in a vary strange world(s), having to beat a hasty retreat to home, to protect his route to the strange planets on which he works.

Back at home he has family to deal with, a brother who doesn’t trust him, a sister who has fallen far below their father’s expectations, and the indominatable pater familias himself. Not all is explained, and there’s a tantalising end.
