Product description

Review

This is NewCon Press's fifth volume of original science fiction and fantasy stories, an admirable achievement considering the prevailing ethos that anthologies don't sell. Even more admirable is Whates's policy of combining big names with lesser known writers. Pick of the crop here are Underbrain; by Tony Ballantyne, a tale of far-future evolution on a colony world, its Wodehousian form belying its macabre content; The God Particle, by Steve Longworth, which interleaves God's visit to CERN with fascinating theories about quantum physics; and Dave Hutchinson's Multitude, part of his series about a post-catastrophe Britain in which psychopathic elves terrorise the populace. The volume closes with Nick Wood's Thirstlands, set in a drought-stricken Africa, a beautifully written study of a couple's tenuous relationship in a future where inter-brain communication is commonplace. --The Guardian

Whates has provided another strong collection, bigger than previous volumes, and worth looking out for. The standard of writing, and the invention in the stories, is almost uniformly excellent, and is strongly recommended. --Best SF

Format: Paperback
I just finished the antho and... wow, what an excellent and varied collection of speculative fiction.

One of my pet peeves with anthos is you sometimes get the feeling the editor accepted a story because the author's name will sell copies. I didn't get that vibe at all with Subterfuge. Every story stood on its own merits. Of course, some of the tales impressed me more than others. My faves were Dave Hutchinson's 'Multitude', a story set in an Elf-dominated Britain and Gary Couzen's beautifully nostalgic 'Jubilee Summer' -- I'll never look at a redhead the same way again! Nods of respect also to Una McCormack, Juliet McKenna, Neal Asher and Tony Ballantyne for their wonderful stories.

To put this review into some sort of perspective, I read The Best of Interzone collection a couple of years back and was very impressed. Most of the stories in Subterfuge are easily on a par with those in the Interzone collection; Subterfuge really is that good. It's a gorgeous looking book too, doncha think? I need to check out what other collections this editor and publisher have put out. I feel slightly dismayed that they've slipped under my radar till now.

A very eclectic collection, some of these stories are very foreign territory for me, but overall I enjoyed the majority.
