I got hold of 'It's Come To Our Attention' months ago, and allowed it to just sit in my Kindle device. Then, a few days ago, I picked up the anthology and read.
The stories revolve around the idea that inanimate objects have a life of their own, and an active one too, away from our gaze and our use for them, or lack thereof. A life that is.....human.
I will not give away the plot of any of these stories. You will just have to read them for yourself, and, when you do, you will thank me for talking you into doing so. I will also avoid stating which one of them is my favourite, but I will say I urge policy-makers around the world to always vote against cutting budgets for libraries. An ebook is probably not the best forum to make a case for supporting libraries, but trust me on this one......
The theme of 'It's Come To Our Attention' takes me back to my childhood, to a time when my brother and I genuinely believed- inspired by TV adaptations of fairytales- that inanimate objects come alive when humans are not looking. But, as with all speculative fiction, there are serious themes being explored in each story as well.
I have to confess that I have never come across any of the writers. All the same, I was impressed; they are all really talented. I am looking forward to their other work. The rest of you, download 'It's Come To Our Attention' and see what I mean.
