Review Extracts

First impressions matter

THERE are some warm words of praise for the anthology Isolation Space in the latest issue of literary journal the Writers’ Muse (#49)

Published by Lulu, the book is Mark Cantrell’s first paperback fiction collection. It presents a challenging and thought-provoking array of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, together with some more literary works, and has earned itself a quick thumbs up from the Muse.

Jim Palmer, editor, said: “Isolation Space will be reviewed fully next issue but what I can say is that if you’re a science fiction fanatic and hanker for the ‘Golden Age’, then you can do no better than to get hold of a copy of this book. The pieces I read took me back to the wonder I felt when I first discovered science fiction and horror. And I loved it!”

The Muse is a quarterly literary journal that publishes short fiction, articles, topical reviews, and short plays. To find out more about the magazine, visit

Preview The Isolation

ISOLATION Space is the first paperback anthology presenting 20 of Mark Cantrell’s short stories in one singular volume.

Most of the stories have appeared in small press magazines, while others have gained an airing on the author’s literary blog 'A Penny's Worth Of Dread' (now defunct), but this is the first time they have appeared together in one bound edition.
