Issue 2 of PS Publishing’s new ParSec Magazine hits the digital shelves today. It’s a Christmas special and features new work by Mike Carey, Angela Slatter, Aliya Whiteley, Ramsey Campbell, Karen Brenchley, Gareth D Jones, Sean McMullen and George Tom. And, also, me!
My contribution, Neighbourhood Watch, is set in the same world as my novella from a few years back, The Memoirist. The one with the flying robot Bees, remember?
This one takes a look at how the combination of super-surveillance and personal data harvesting might be leveraged in the morally grey economy. But it kicks off with a completely egregious and hugely uncomfortable cake-eating scene which I had masses of fun writing. And what could be more Christmassy than politeness, gluttony and indigestion?
Even if cake isn’t your thing, ParSec Magazine is definitely worth your time.
