Quick Short Story Review: The Purring of Cats by Dave Hoing, Interzone #207

About a counselor who falls in love with his patient. In this case the patient is actually classed as a criminal as she has illegally had sex with an alien.

The writing was alright, although for me it didn’t really come alive. I thought the Science Fiction was rather superficial though – it could have been in any era from the twentieth century onwards – apart from mention of aliens and spaceships there was very little futurism, and the societal background could well have been swapped for any totalitarian state.
