Overview

Jeapes Japes by Ben Jeapes

In this collection by Ben Jeapes

- a bullied schoolboy escapes into his own future
- the spirit of Karl Marx lives on in a bolshie artificial intelligence
- digital cats prowl a computer network to keep it safe from intruders
- a network of grandmothers patrol our streets very, very slowly
- and a man is put on trial for his life by aliens who barely understand human nature, let alone human law.

Plus twelve more stories, including one never before seen in print.

The majority of the stories featured in Interzone, while some appeared in other venues including The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. Full of ideas that linger long with the reader, this is a collection of intelligent, original observations - and sharp humour.

About the Author

Ben watched far too much Dr Who at an early age and started writing science fiction at the age of 18 in the mistaken belief that it would be quite easy (it isn’t). As well as 18 short stories he is also the author of His Majesty’s Starship (1998), The Xenocide Mission (2002), The New World Order (2004) and Time’s Chariot (2008), plus numerous items of ghostwriting and hackwork that annoyingly earn more than his own stuff. His ambition is to live to be 101 and 7 months, so as to reach the 1000th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings and the arrival (so family lore has it) of the man responsible for his surname in the British Isles. He is English and as quietly proud of the fact as you would expect of the descendant of a Danish mercenary who fought for a bunch of Norsemen living in northern France.
