A collection of Dave's fanwriting and fiction, collecting speeches, articles and stories from the years 1982-1996. These were almost exactly the years in which I was most active in some of the same corners of sf fandom, and so there are quite a few I read on original publication, alongside some that I missed and am very glad to have read now. Knowing Dave, as I do, I read these hearing his voice, and many of the books he had read and was reading were the books I had read and was reading, and the cons he was at were the cons I was at. So all-in-all, this was a delightful feast of fannish nostalgia that kept me in giggles throughout. (I actually get namechecked once or twice, and recognise my humourless, more-youthful self perfectly encapsulated in pellucid prose.)

Included are two stories from the Temps anthologies edited by Alex Stewart in 1991 and 1992, and reading the stories alongside the fan writing is quite fascinating.

One to keep.

(Read last month, but it hasn't been a good month for book blogging.)
