The real-time review of NEVER AGAIN has just started. Des Lewis has just finished story 7 out of 23. Join us for the journey or if you have bought the book and would rather read this after you have read the anthology...then that is rather fine too :>).

There is an excellent review of NEVER AGAIN in BLACK STATIC 19.  :)

'Reviewing charity anthologies is an endeavour fraught with peril for the reviewer as nobody wants to be the bad guy who rains on everyone's parade, but fortunately the twenty three stories in this volume - eleven of them reprints- are of a generally high standard, exceptional in one or two cases, so that particular poison chalice gets taken from me....'

Pete Tennant's review of the anthology can be found in BLACK STATIC 19. Available from TTA PRESS.

And in Morpheus Tales, a new review...by Adrian Brady!

"Here we have a collection of genre tales dedicated to the fight against prejudice, in its many forms, particularly racism and fascism. This isn’t just a great anthology; it is a group of writers speaking out against “political attitudes that stifle compassion.” It’s about awareness and treating every individual like a human being, sentiments that we can all understand.

The theme is echoed in the stories contained in the book, many dealing with racism in its various forms, and a lot of the others dealing with fascism and totalitarianism.

The writers are a diverse bunch, each giving us a different play on the themes. Some stories are a bit looser than others, but all are excellently written. My favourites of the collection are a Lansdale reprint, and the original stories from Simon Kurt Unsworth, Gary McMahon and Rhys Hughes.

“The Torturer” by Steve Duffy is particularly disturbing, even more so in the factual context this book intends to inform us about. For those readers who are sparked to take action, at the end of the book there is a list of organisations that stand up against fascism and racism. The book has a lot of meaning behind it, and that just helps you to enjoy the fiction even more, and makes you realise that we are lucky to have been born or live in the free world, where we are allowed to write and read what we want. A great collection with a great sentiment, this book deserves your support and understanding."
