A near-future in which the USA has gone to hell, with the states anything but united, as civil insurgency, triggered by an NRA terrorist attach, and climate change has put the lid on Lightning Jack’s career as a top NASCAR driver.

Dark story with some great touches (“The culvert beckoned like a dark eye, cloacal and alluring”)
Chilling horror from Bailey, as a girl guide troop go feral, heading off into the local woods..
An evocative piece of horror, taking the reader to the early 1980s, and a hot summer, with two teenagers with time to spend in getting into trouble – albeit with a soundtrack just a bit different to the American norm (The Undertones, The Jam, and, praise be The Slits).
Bailey picks up where Bradbury left off with ‘A Sound of Thunder’, in a time travel story with bite.
Deceptively disturbing story which starts with a bit of domestic disharmony, a touch of mild depression, and gradually slides into darker, albeit more transparent, territory.
Deftly handled amusing conceit in which a member of a gentleman’s club is found to be a rotten cove indeed.
A dark, powerful story to open the issue.
