The Pequod Review:
M. John Harrison’s You Should Come With Me Now is an odds-and-ends collection of forty-two pieces of varying lengths. Some of them (maybe around sixteen) are complete short stories, but the rest are fragments, vignettes or other loose scenes or passages. Harrison’s stories are generally in the science fiction tradition, typically set in a dystopian version of the UK and involving alienated characters aspiring for something more in life. Even in fragmentary form, Harrison is a stylish writer who knows how to create a rich atmosphere.
