Publisher Description

Keith Robert's The Lordly Ones offers a wide variety of sf and fantasy (and even a ghost story). The title story is a vision of near-future Britain collapsing in social disorder told from the viewpoint of a slow-witted lavatory attendant. Another take, "The Comfort Station", approaches a similar situation from a quite different perspective. In other stories we see Roberts in a more light-hearted vein: "The Checkout", another of his series of stories about a modern-day witch, Anita, or "Diva", a tale of singer of unique abilities. In "Ariadne Potts" a man's wish brings a classical statue to life, with, inevitably, unfortunate results. "The Castle and the Hoop" is an atmospheric ghost story set around the pubs of Southwark. And "Sphairistike" is perhaps the only sf story ever to centre on the game of tennis.
