‘Heat Of Fusion’ by John M. Ford

Simply superb. You could wait a long time for a story like this (and, let’s be honest, I did). Exquisitely weighted, it fills eleven spare pages with an autopsy and a requiem and, finally, a tortured but triumphant humanity. I suspect I will have to read much more Ford.

Quality: *****
Hardness: *****
