With the often downbeat tone common to british sci-fi,  Lies We Will Tell Ourselves is a high quality sci-fi collection. Casting old themes and modern concerns in wide and varied sci-fi settings, there is enough here to entertain most fans and readers of the genre. While the quality varies, even the weaker stories are above average.

Given the quality of the stories and the professional editing, it was no surprise to find that this is a collected edition of stories previously printed in magazines. Most of the stories have twists, making it hard to describe them without spoiling the collection, but the theme of lies, deception and self-deception run through all of them.

Sci-fi readers should enjoy it, but so may readers who simply want stories to make them think.

  • Scramble – Digital Science Fiction Short Story: Original Imprint
    Five stars, and if the rest of the Blue Collar Space series are as good, I'd suggest giving them a look as well. A wonderful blend of plot and character.
  • The Planet of the Last Judgment
    A fast sci-fi action short story, with some neat twists. The problem is that what it does, it does well, but what it does has been done better before.
  • Metal in the Sand
    As sci-fi it is sadly a little average. It is well-written, with decent world-building, but anyone who follows mecha fiction or AI ship stories will find little unusual or unique here.
