This is a collection of speculative fiction exploring unfamiliar landscapes and strange characters. The title story (A Passport to a Nation of Talking Slugs), is, in my opinion, the best of these and shows off the author’s clever use of language as well as his seemingly unfettered imagination. Having said that, the other titles in this volume, though equally thought-provoking and beautifully written, left me wondering what was going on. But I suppose any writer who challenges perceptions the way Andrew Kozma does, cannot fail to provoke a reaction in his readers, and, as somebody famous probably once said, readers would rather be confused than bored.
So, while I admit to feeling a little confused on reaching the end of this collection, I am, nevertheless, suitably impressed.
