- Smithereens: Amazon.co.uk: Steve Aylett: Books
"SMITHEREENS collects 19 stories including 'The Man Whose Head Expanded', the prophetic 'Download Syndrome', 'The Burnished Adventures of Injury Mouse', 'Voyage of the Iguana', the last ever Beerlight story 'Specter's Way', 'Horoscope', and the closest thing Aylett has ever written to a traditional SF story, 'Bossanova' (featuring a robot and two spaceships!) There are also animal-attack-while-writing reminiscences in 'Evernemesi' and top-of-the-line declarative bitterness in 'On Reading New Books'. Aylett's last collection. "
