A collection of stories about Northampton(shire), from members of the Northampton SF Writers Group, this is edited by Ian Whates and Ian Watson and has a terrific introduction from Alan Moore. There are 12 stories in total, ranging from olde-worlde, through ghost stories, to SF and whilst some of them take liberties with the location (they could have been set anywhere), most utilitise Northamptonshir

There are some wild flights of imagination in this book of speculative stories set around Northampton. The introduction from Alan Moore is a surprisingly good and passionate read (perhaps I should bother to read introductions more often). I can't rate this as I wrote one of the stories.

Can't think why I haven't commented on this before. Anyway, a great collection of stories from a variety of authors, including me. Highly recommended, even if you don't read my contribution.

Ian Whates lives in a comfortable home down a quiet cul-de-sac in an idyllic Cambridgeshire village, which he shares with his partner Helen and their pets – Honey the golden cocker spaniel, Calvin the tailless black cat and Inky the goldfish (sadly, Binky died a few years ago).

Ian’s earliest memories of science fiction are fragmented. He remembers loving Dr Who from an early age and other TV shows
