Pure Cream Cotton Beanie Hat Kufi Cap Silverliningz
4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, but vast., 26 Mar 2014
As these came in only one size I thought it would stretch to fit, but it's a vast thing, beautifully made, that could cover the whole head. Having said that, it's great value and if folded a bit, works fine. I confess it was only bought to cover a massive and unsightly head wound with stitches and in that it worked perfectly.
The Internet is a Playground by David Thorne
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 26 Mar 2014
This is funnier than I expected. A strange reminder of the Henry Root Letters, it's a testament to not taking yourself too seriously in life and a great exposure of people who have no sense of their place in the larger society they inhabit, let alone a sense of humour. Just don't read it on public transport as everyone will want to know why you're laughing so much.

They're mainly American, they're odd and don't really relate to anything. Most of them aren't "alternate histories" - more simply science fiction versions of events and places. Some are simply unreadable. You get halfway into a story, they are all short stories, and the narrative has been jumping about so much you lose the thread and have to go back to the beginning.
