Hub, Issue 77

I've heard on the grapevine that Hub is the semi-pro place to get published these days, at least in the UK.

The story in Issue 77 is Hidden Underneath by Malin Larsson. This is an anecdotal tale of a cabbie who is hard to like with an enchanting ending. I'd decided that I didn't like the story - the writing was competent but not remarkable and the POV character sees the world in stereotypes. I was put off by the negative, cynical narrator. However, the ending is so lovely and memorable that I'm sure it'll stay with me for longer than many other stories.

I'm catching up a little bit. Then on to Crossed Genres and Issue 9 of Pantechnicon.
