New Issue 2012.22

I get angry when I hear the word ‘empire’; it reminds me of slavery, it reminds me of thousands of years of brutality, it reminds me of how my foremothers were raped and my forefathers brutalised.
-- Benjamin Zephaniah (on being offered the OBE)

  1. Great selection of stories here and the illustrations add to a sterling issue. I particularly liked The Boy Who Shattered Time. I'm a huge devourer of dystopian fiction and this ticks many boxes for me. Done right, time travel is always a fascinating novum and TBWST has a remarkably fresh zing to it.

    There are various socio-political topics covered: government, science within society, class and poverty. While I don't think these issues are "dealt" with as the principal theme of the story, they are important components and add interest and depth to the narrative.
