Tanith Lee - Crying in the rain

In a bleak post-nuclear war setting, a mother gives up everything for her daughter. A very moving story.

Christopher Evans - The facts of life

Unpleasant story of a planet on which women are brutally forced into subservience.

M. John Harrison - Small heirlooms

Kit visits her brothers house, now hers, as he has died and left it to her. She reads and reflects on the offbeat writings he left. Lacks any real narrative drive.

Ian Watson - The Emir's clock

A strange device in a church opens up new perspectives for two students, one of whom is an Arab prince.

Brian Aldiss - The price of cabbages

An uninspring title hides a powerful story of life on the galactic periphery and the gender divide it creates...

Graham Charnock - Fullwood's web

Quite by coincidence, the narrator meets an old school friend, Fullwood, who is building a machine which increases the 'coincidences' of things happening. And they do...

Robert Holdstock - Scarrowfell

Ginny is looked after by Mother, who not her real mother. She has dreams of an approaching blind man. Her village is due its traditional festival celebrating the harvest but what happens is different this year.

Michael Moorcock - The frozen Cardinal

An exploration mission to a hitherto unvisited planet finds a priest, a Cardinal no less, frozen inside a glacier. Told in a realistic diary format, the story generates real power...

Garry Kilworth - Triptych: The black wedding : Murder's walk :
Hogfoot right and birdhands

Three seemingly unrelated weird stories under one title.

R.M. Lamming - Sanctity

A bully goads his victim to sneak into a boarded up prohibited building with him. It turns out to be a church...

David S. Garnet - Moonlighter

A 'moonlighter' like Alan swaps realities - in this current one living with Ruth but lusting after Caroline, and having a car with a scratch on the wrong side for the accident he remembers...

David Langford - In a land of sand and rain and gold

In a future world in which anything goes, and nothing is worth anything, a couple stumble upon a strange new concept...

Keith Roberts - Piper's wait

Very odd story about a piper who seems magical (but lives in a small village in England that used to have a campsite). He gets embroiled with a strange woman who seems to be demented by some evil spell, but is she?

Lisa Tuttle - The wound

Love story in which Olin, Seth and Dove weave a complicated pattern, which changes in an unexpected way ( )
  AlanPoulter | Nov 13, 2011 |

Original anthology of sf stories by writers based in Britain, published in 1987. My copy has lots of autographs. I had only read one of the stories before (the one by Dave Langford) and enjoyed all the others - thought the very first one, "Crying in the Rain" by Tanith Lee, was particularly memorable; couldn't really see that there were any sfnal elements in M. John Harrison's "Small Heirlooms". ( )
