Dark Tales: Volume XIV

For me, Georgina Bruce's Dark Tales debut brings to mind a hybrid of classic 1950s sci-fi and David Cronenburg's visceral horror - see if you agree. This volume has many textures and shades, from the black humour of Sally Spedding's Home Truths to Katherine Spink's silicon chip-infused Interaction, proving that the short story is definitely alive, kicking, and as entertaining as ever.
