Nothing with the ship, that is. A girl slips from one universe into another, and briefly into the life of an unhappily married man.
the peacock cloak
A teacher finds himself in the mind of an alternative version of himself in a world in which Britain has been invaded by adherents to a Celtic religion centred around the staff of Joseph of Arimathea. The parallel with modern Israel and Palestine is clear, even to the bulldozers. By placing the English in the position of Palestinians Beckett gives the reader a new way of thinking about land, nationhood and justice. The collection ends with the title story, another allegory.
Chris Beckett. The Peacock Cloak. (Asimovs June ). | Best SF
Fabbro created the virtual universe of Esperine and placed seven copies, one exact, Tawus, and six distorted, of himself within its garden wilderness. For millennia there has been rebellion and war. The end game approaches.
A beautiful, ambitious and reflective story and a fitting note on which to end. You can order copies direct from NewCon Press. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed. Sign in.
