Lantern Lecture and Other Stories Reviews
Charles Lambert's rating reminded me I'd read this - this is the one with the 'Black Panther' (a real life kidnapper/murderer: Adam Mars-Jones' father was the trial judge)story. One of the first examples of docu-fiction that I'd read.Found this in a 80s notebook: read on a train journey, outside fields of snow cut with the blue shadows of telegraph poles. Like this criminal's mind: ice cold, filled with 'The Plan'. The military mind in action, humans figure as elements in the landscape to be moved around, manipulated. A help or hindrance to 'The Plan'.
I find it difficult to rate a collection of three stories. 'Bathpool Park' the third story in this book is a great story. I'd rate it as 3+, almost a 4. The first story, 'Lantern Lecture', perhaps 2 or 3. But story number two, 'Hoosh-Mi', has no appeal for me at all. I would have liked the book much more if that one was left right out.
