The July/August 2006 AHMM carries a story by Neil Schofield. (See above for title.) I’ve reviewed a couple others by this author on this blog. He’s a cool writer and this story cements this. The last page or two have enough twists for a corkscrew. The writing throughout is smooth – English reserve put to paper. The story deals with a house party that fairly quickly turns into a bit of a home invasion. I’ll let you figure out where it goes from there. In any event, you’ll like the narrator, and I think you’ll like the ending as well. I say, but I remind you that I’m not that hard to fool. Still, I think extra care went into this one. Good work.
