Strange Horizons Fiction: The Serial Killer's Astronaut Daughter, by Damien Angelica Walters
Another fantastic story on Strangehorizons. I should make a donation to this wonderful magazine this year.
Great use of First person POV / Present tense. I like the edgy humour, the beautiful tight wording. The way the dialogue brings characters to life. The stunning TITLE for this story. How could you read the words 'The Serial Killer's Astronaut Daughter' and NOT want to read on?
I checked the author's website and was surprised to find some other work that sits in the Horror camp. A couple of other pieces I read were a lot darker than this. Then again, there's a dark and interesting undertow in this story.
