The Clown Escapes from Circus Town on StarShipSofa

It’s that time of the month again and StarShipSofa #182 comes with artwork. It’s worth visiting the StarShipSofa Main site as well because the monthly cover art is now being used to re-theme the site on a regular (monthly) basis.

The main fiction this month is Circus Town by Will McIntosh and I am looking forward to this one, mainly because I’m pretty certain I’ve already read it. If it is the story I remember (possibly from Interzone, but I’d have to check to be sure), it’s an effective and moving story of an innocent abroad and an engaging take on the idea of a world made strange by limited perceptions.

I’ll be downloading this as soon as I get home tonight, and looking forward to listening to it when I jump in the car tomoroow.
