    1. **** The Cinema of Coming AttractionsFrance, the 1960's. A seaside tourist town. The narrator runs a small gang: shell games, pickpocketing, other petty crimes. The main entertainment for the locals in this town is the titular cinema - which shows not popular films, but glimpses of the possible futures of the audience members. When the narrator meets an aspiring actress, who invites him to attend the cinema with her, both of their futures may change. Beautifully done - the atmosphere of the time [...]


    2. Extraordinary collection containing two sort of alt-history tales, one set in France of the 60's and one in an Australia with an inland sea that made it a superpower in the late 40's and early 50's and then the pieces of resistance, four stories set in the Caeli-Amur milieu of cities with rival houses that have magicians and geneticists - including the title story set in Varenis a totalitarian rival of Caeli-Amur One of the stories and among the 3 A++ for me was published on Sci-fi so should be [...]


    3. The first two stories in this collection stand alone, in setting if not theme. In "The Cinema of Coming Attractions" the leader of a street gang in a sun-baked coastal town near Marseilles falls for a young film star who's conscious she won't be young for much longer. She takes him to the cinema of the title. It's a cool, calm tale which reminded in a good way of Basil Copper's recently re-published stories. An Australia enriched by an inland sea and facing war with China is the setting for "Int [...]

    5. I first read this about a year ago, but I went back to pre-order Rjurik Davidson's new novel this week, and discovering this very cheap in eBook format, grabbed it and reread.I'm not really a fan of short stories. They always seem to be making a single point, and usually pretty forcefully making it, given the strong restrictions on space. And while a couple of the stories in this compendium showed that stronger than others ('will our protagonist go through with it?' verges on a theme), the compe [...]


    6. I'm not a reader of fantasy, and this was a large step from the book I finished in the morning on the psychology of smell It took me a story or two to feel like I knew what was happening, but after that I slipped easily into the world beneath the world and felt like I too was traversing the Labyrinth. The stories are so intertwined and well themed that you would be forgiven for thinking of them as chapters.It was hard to put down at night, and I scooped it up again as soon as I woke.Davidson bui [...]



    7. I liked this more than I thought. The first story was okay but the rest were pretty good. More fantasy. There was a story with minotaurs which to me are scary. A different kind of book for me so that could be another reason I liked it.


    8. The writing was lovely, but the stories didn't strike me as very original, especially the first two. The other four were all set in an imaginary world that had enough fascinating details that it didn't matter if the stories themselves were completely predictable. I'd be curious to read a novel set there, to see if the author's plotting can expand to rival his setting.On the whole, though, I'd rather read Angela Carter's short stories.
