Another Review of Hideki and the Gnomes

“Hideki and the Gnomes” by Mark Lee Pearson is a very short, weird tale that’s similar to previous Apex offerings such as Nathan Rosen’s “I Know an Old Lady”. This one has a definite cadence, an almost Mother Goose feel, even if its meaning is murky.

Review at IRoSF


There were twelve moons in the night sky: one from this dimension, the others reflections of the eleven dimensions. One switched off like a computer monitor. On the blank screen, Hideki watched the Space Shuttle, Confronter, hurtling to Earth, out of control.
As the moons disappear one by one, Hideki also goes out of control.

Very short ambiguous fantasy. Either the world is coming to an end, or Hideki is loony. Or, perhaps, both.
