Kaleidotrope issue 8 arrived in my mailbox yesterday. It contains my space-freight comedy-of-masses ‘The Speed of Heavy‘, from which an ostensibly-randomly-chosen snippet may (or may not) provide some indication of the story’s flavour:
“So a bat on Vesta, weighing ten kilos, is not the size of a small dog. It could without difficulty eat a small dog. Or several. In serial, if not in parallel.”
While I haven’t yet had time to devour the whole issue, I have sampled the story following mine, which is Jeff Soesbe’s wonderfully daffy ‘Visiting the Ladies Room Exhibit at the Human Museum‘. Well worth checking out.
