    What a great pair of stories, particularly Paul’s – just stunning.

    Wonderful showing from new narrator Jack as well – and Mike’s effort was, of course, up to his usual astronomical standards. :)

    Enjoyed that. And, can’t remember if it was mentioned, the followup story is available on paulcornell.com

    Thanks for that Nick – I’m off to Paul’s site to look at the sequel. Also really enjoyed Andy Tomaswick’s Hugo series. I really enjoyed Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, must read it again some time. I think it took Susanna Clarke 10 years to write it (it was her first book) and that a sequel is in the works, but no publication date set as yet.

    Wow, ‘One of Our Bastards Is Missing’ was just spectacular. Totally fascinating! It ‘reads’ like sci-fi but has to be fantasy as it seems to be set in the 1800′s or something. I think it was that the ‘technology’ was constantly referred to but never explained, so it could have been tech, or it could have been magic – hard to say. The fact that the queen could transfer “notes” via her hand sounds like computers though. Pretty darn awesome either way. Will be reading the sequel for sure. Been a while since i’ve been so enthused about a story.. gotta get all my friends to have a listen too. Just friggin’ neat.
