The Queen in question being Queen Victoria, and the cambion (in medieval legend, a cambion is a half-human offspring of a succubus and an incubus, as any fule kno) in question being Merlin the Magician.

A touch of ancient magic and noblery from Bowes.
Bowes’ series of autobiographical (up to a point!) stories in F&SF have been a treat for some time now.
Intensely personal, and with a fantastical element that’s gentler than most that appear in the magazine, part of a substantial series.

A late arrival on my doorstep, and it’s taken much longer to finish the review than I had hoped. Note to self : faster dude, faster!
Something for everyone … pervs included. Duncan, Reaves and Bowes my favourites, giving the first half of the chunky, value for money, volume more grist to my reviewing mill.

A collection of excellent stories.
Another excellent semi-autobiographical tale from Bowes. Put a Velvet Underground LP on (CDs and mp3s won’t cut it) and step back in time 40 years.
