Theaker's Quarterly Fiction #47
Theaker's Quarterly Fiction #47 will make you slightly happier than you previously were. It features four stories. "Abandon" by Mitchell Edgeworth takes the Black Swan into spooky territory. Antonella Coriander, who almost definitely exists, and is almost definitely not a pseudonym used to disguise the magazine's woeful lack of female contributors, begins her new serial Les Aventures Fantastiques de Beatrice et Veronique with "Bike Ride to Peril". In Chris Roper's "Witchinga" a poor fellow finds out that there are worse things than losing your job, even in the USA. And Anthony Malone's satire "Zombie & Son" does its best to get the magazine into legal trouble with a parody of beloved members of the British establishment which almost certainly does not reflect the real nature of any of the persons concerned. The issue also includes reviews by Stephen Theaker, Douglas J. Ogurek and Jacob Edwards of: Divergent, Doctor Who: The Web of Fear, Elvenquest: The Complete Second Series, The Exploits of Engelbrecht by Maurice Richardson, Ghost Train to New Orleans by Mur Lafferty, The Glorkian Warrior Delivers a Pizza by James Kochalka, Her, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, I, Frankenstein, Justice League of America, Vol. 1, New Amsterdam by Elizabeth Bear, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, Template by Matthew Hughes, Terra Obscura: S.M.A.S.H. of Two Worlds, The Winds of Gath by E.C. Tubb, and Wonder Woman Unbound by Tim Hanley.
