It s and Patricia Cowan is very old Confused today read the notes clipped to the end of her bed She forgets things she should know what year it is major events in the lives of her children But she remembers things that don t seem possible She remembers marrying Mark and having four children And she remembers not marrying Mark and raising three children with Bee instead She remembers the bomb that killed President Kennedy in and she remembers Kennedy in declining to run again after the nuclear exchange that took out Miami and Kiev br br Her childhood her years at Oxford during the Second World War those were solid things But after that did she marry Mark or not Did her friends all call her Trish or Pat Had she been a housewife who escaped a terrible marriage after her children were grown or a successful travel writer with homes in Britain and Italy And the moon outside her window does it host a benign research station or a command post bristling with nuclear missiles br br Two lives two worlds two versions of modern history Each with their loves and losses their sorrows and triumphs My Real Children is the tale of both of Patricia Cowan s lives and of how every life means the entire world, A tale of love money and family conflict among dragons A family deals with the death of their father A son goes to court for his inheritance Another son agonises over his father s deathbed confession One daughter becomes involved in the abolition movement while another sacrifices herself for her husband And everyone in the tale is a dragon red in tooth and claw Here is a world of politics and train stations of churchmen and family retainers of courtship and country houses in which on the death of an elder family members gather to eat the body of the deceased In which the great and the good avail themselves of the privilege of killing and eating the weaker children which they do with ceremony and relish growing stronger thereby You have never read a novel like Tooth and Claw, One summer weekend in but not our the well connected Farthing set a group of upper crust English families enjoy a country retreat Lucy is a minor daughter in one of those families her parents were both leading figures in the group that overthrew Churchill and negotiated peace with Herr Hitler eight years before br br Despite her parents evident disapproval Lucy is married happily to a London Jew It was therefore quite a surprise to Lucy when she and her husband David found themselves invited to the retreat It s even more startling when on the retreat s first night a major politician of the Farthing set is found gruesomely murdered with abundant signs that the killing was ritualistic br br It quickly becomes clear to Lucy that she and David were brought to the retreat in order to pin the murder on him Major political machinations are at stake including an initiative in Parliament supported by the Farthing set to limit the right to vote to university graduates br br But whoever s behind the murder and the frame up didn t reckon on the principal investigator from Scotland Yard being a man with very private reasons for sympathizing with outcasts and looking beyond the obvious br As the trap slowly shuts on Lucy and David they begin to see a way out a way fraught with peril in a darkening world, As any reader of Jo Walton s i Among Others i might guess Walton is both an inveterate reader of SF and fantasy and a chronic re reader of books In then new science fiction mega site Tor com asked Walton to blog regularly about her re reading i i about all kinds of older fantasy and SF ranging from acknowledged classics to guilty pleasures to forgotten oddities and gems These posts have consistently been among the most popular features of Tor com Now this volumes presents a selection of the best of them ranging from short essays to long reassessments of some of the field s most ambitious series br br Among Walton s many subjects here are the Zones of Thought novels of Vernor Vinge the question of what genre readers mean by mainstream the underappreciated SF adventures of C J Cherryh the field s many approaches to time travel the masterful science fiction of Samuel R Delany Salman Rushdie s i Midnight s Children i the early Hainish novels of Ursula K Le Guin and a Robert A Heinlein novel you have most certainly never read br br Over essays in all i What Makes This Book So Great i is an immensely readable engaging collection of provocative opinionated thoughts about past and present day fantasy and science fiction from one of our best writers
