The latest addition to my website is Ned Beauman‘s The Teleportation Accident. It’s not a science fiction novel, more a pastiche of science fiction, US noir, particularly 1930s noir, conspiracy theories and spy fiction. It’s quirky, it’s funny, at times it is stupid but is a thoroughly enjoyable read and certainly different from your run-of-the-mill Granta Young Novelist fiction (Beauman made the list). However, it does have one thing in common with one of the other works. It is only the second novel that I can recall reading that uses the word panopticon.
