Interesting stuff that I read in January

So this new year I had but one resolution – to read more stuff. Last year was a seriously shoddy effort in terms of picking up a book/magazine/e-reader and enjoying all the good fiction at my disposal. So, in an effort to …make a decent effort… I’m going to attempt to post a monthly update on what I’ve found entertaining/interesting during the month.

So for January:

“Sylvow” by Douglas Thompson (Eibonvale Press). Hugely lush and surreal novel of Gaian revenge. Some of the images in this will live with me all year.

“Intellectual Property” by Michael R Fletcher (Interzone, Jan-Feb 2011) Clever slice of cyberpunk. Felt I should have worked it out before the end, but I didn’t, so it worked for me.

“Barker” by Ian Sales (BFS Journal, January 2011). Particularly affecting piece of alt space history, poignantly highlighting the improper use of dumb animals in the early days of space exploration.
