The first of two excellent short story collections released this month by Elastic Press, the outfit created by Andrew Hook and a small UK outfit that continues to impress with both the creative quality of its output and the care and dedication shown in the production and marketing of it's work.
Another Santana Morning is an updated reissue of Mike Dolan's collection of short fiction originally published back in 1970 but "...a quirk of fate has given it a forgotten history... Dolan, once lauded by the likes of Ray Bradbury slipped back into obscurity, resurfacing over thirty-five years later to put a new spin on these tales."
I don't know Dolan's work, and have not yet dipped into this fine looking trade paperback edition. But if Chaz Brenchley's excellent introduction is anything to go by (and Chaz does know his stuff) then wonderful things await us inside.
