Billy's Book Billy's Book by Terry Bisson
reviewed by Matthew Hughes
In case you've forgotten, childhood is hard, mean and nasty. Although sometimes it's also a lot of fun. And, sometimes, it's all of those things put together. Billy is a little boy who lives in a world of imagination. It might be his imagination. It might be Terry Bisson's. But it's certainly a place where lots of interesting things happen.

Numbers Don't Lie Numbers Don't Lie by Terry Bisson
reviewed by David Hebblethwaite
Irving, our narrator, has no head for science, so he can't understand how the Moon could be inside a mechanic's shed when it's clearly still in the sky; or why a previously deteriorating car seat cover is now improving by the day; or what's making planes and trains arrive on time all of a sudden. Luckily, his friend Wilson Wu is (amongst many other things) a mathematical genius, and he knows what's going on.

Numbers Don't Lie Numbers Don't Lie by Terry Bisson
reviewed by Paul Kincaid
There seems to come a time in the life of every writer of quirky science fiction when they latch on to a series character. The ancestor is clearly the pub story (think of Tales from the White Hart by the decidedly unquirky Arthur C. Clarke) but these have evolved by ways as varied as R.A. Lafferty's crackpot team of researchers and the denizens of Spider Robinson's Callahan's Bar.

The Pickup Artist The Pickup Artist by Terry Bisson
reviewed by Lisa DuMond
The thought has crossed everyone's mind, at least for a second; what if the brain's capacity is limited? What if the next phone number you automatically memorize pushes out your knowledge of the Children's Crusade. The lyrics to that annoyingly persistent pop song takes the place of the table of elements. Is there only so much room? It's a theory the Bureau of Arts and Entertainment thinks is so, and it's up to Shapiro, the Pickup Artist, to enforce the law and keep the crowding down to a minimum.

In the Upper Room In the Upper Room and Other Likely Stories by Terry Bisson
reviewed by Lisa DuMond
In Bisson's world there are multiple dimensions and every single one of them includes lingerie. So, even if the situation is not exactly to your liking, you will be able to find quality tap pants, for you or whoever you'd like to see in them. Or out of them. It is the allure of those exotic undergarments that whisks the hero of the title story off on a virtual vacation that doesn't go exactly as advertised.
