Andrew Darlington's A Saucerful of Secrets gets a five-star review in The Zone.
entering a twilight zone for the loading of genre-literate humour, and
unloading of predictability for tragedy and vivid lyricism, A Saucerful Of Secrets
takes us across multiple thresholds
between compelling realism and sophisticated imagination, with sublimely
witty references and hefty riffs aplenty, adding a weight and
philosophical depth few can match. This is a veteran writer's first
collection of short fiction, and it's frequently steeped in traditional
SF tropes but with post-modern twists and beguiling absurdism. Through
the looking-glass, or down rabbit holes, these are stories
penned with unusually poetical intent. The info-density and wordplay
seems, at a first glance, like old lead, but, scratch the surface
contours and it's revealed to be gold of a Brit-Lit wealth." Read the full review here.
