  1. everybody well a couple of people I rate is raving about this book, so I shall be getting it Have now got it, and about to read Think I ve read the first story in Warwick Reviewry enjoyable More laterI enjoyed these stories a lot, they are all beautifully composed and get you into the heads of the protagonists quickly and without fuss These varied from girls on the brink of adolescence and boys with an arson fixation to mothers grieving lost babies and an exploited house painter Ashworth display [...]


  2. Somewhere Else, or Even Here is an excellent debut collection Vanessa Gebbie describes Ashworth s stories as shooting stars brilliant, sparkling scratches against the night, while Maggie Gee writes that they are, Dark, witty, delicious stories with flashes of terror and tenderness The collection opens with Sometimes Gulls Kill Other Gulls, a haunting and terrifying story about an encounter between a boy and a girl on a beach it was longlisted in the 2011 Fish Short Story Prize and the 2011 Short [...]


  3. 2 1 2 starsWhy do people have to write about harming animals It makes me very sad It took me out of this book of stories, which I found just okay anyway But I m not the greatest fan of short stories I did like the one about the cult But I wish it wouldn t have opened with a story about hurting a dog, because it put me off immediately.


  4. I did read parts of this book last year and first was introduced to AJ Ashworth s work when I was in Blackburn Then I bought my own copy and meandered through the stories I didn t know.Anyway, preamble over The influence of astronomy seems to connect these often darkly beautiful stories Sometimes this is overt, such as with Rings of Saturn and Zero Gravity, sometimes subtly, in the theme of connections Zero Gravity is one of my favourites though there are many in the collection It s about a yo [...]


  5. I think the best word to describe this collection is struggle There is some form of struggle within every short story, whether it be struggling to cope with the loss of a child, with the deterioration of a spouse, or with finding that people or the world around you are just not what you thought they were Beautifully written, Ashworth quickly builds up an entire world within each story which is compelling throughout For an interview with the author, please go to my blog laurabesley 2012 1


  6. A first collection from a talented writer The worlds portrayed by these stories are diverse but wonderfully conjured The style is spare, characters beautifully etched Ashworth draws on an interest in astronomy, which runs like a thread throughout Powerful, intense and linguistically dense, these stories linger long after the pages have been closed.
