Valeria Vitale reviews Malcolm Devlin’s weird short story collection You Will Grow Into Them from Unsung Stories, and celebrates that the “weirdness” that populates Devlin’s stories is the kind that she enjoys the most: “not necessarily the gory and horrific but more the sinister, the ambiguous, the eerie, the unexplained and the inexplicable.”

Sounds like an excellent collection!

Djibril reviews Kristine Ong Muslim’s The Drone Outside, the first in the new line of chapbooks from Eibonvale Press. This volume of nine interrelated flash stories gives us “snippets of life during or after the apocalypse, told from unusual points of view, or with surreal narrative, or or evidencing unexpected scenarios of death, destruction and post-humanity.” An excellent read, great value, and produced to Eibonvale’s usual high editorial standards.

Andy Sawyer reviews James W. Greenfield’s The Time Machine, a 90-minute musical version of H.G. Wells's classic (inspired of course by the musical War of the Worlds). Andy gives a detailed and sensitive —and not uncritical—reading of the album, and concludes, “If it sounds snide to Greenfield to say that The Time Machine sounds in places like it is a demo for an unproduced Big Theatre musical show, then can I say that I would really like to see that show.”

Cait Coker reviews Margrét Helgadóttir's, Pacific Monsters, the fourth anthology in Fox Spirit's Books of Monsters series, volumes which “decolonize the monstrous of the popular imagination and pop culture,” and “showcase fiction across the spectrum of speculative fiction genres that feature creatures drawn from the localized myth and folklore of other cultures.” Cait is impressed by this eclectic collection of tales, and we look forward to the next three outings in the series.
