If Angels Fight: 02/05/08
The final story in February issue of Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine, "If Angels Fight" by Richard Bowes was the perfect read for Super Tuesday as it is filled with memories of past politics.
The story is told by an unnamed narrator who has been sent by Carol Bannon, the heir to a Boston political legacy, to find her brother Mark. Through the reports back of the search for this brother and the memories of him it becomes apparent that this is no ordinary search.
According to a review / interview on John Joseph Adams's blog, Richard Bowes based much of this story on personal memories. The story's details carry the weight of experience. Adams also reports that "Do Angels Fight" will be included as a chapter in an upcoming novel called Dust Devil on Quiet Street.
If you enjoyed "If Angels Fight" then I recommend Sleep No More by Greg Iles.
