"Food For Thought" (Sentinel)

Reviewed by Kathryn A on 23rd February 2003 (1)

I almost wish that the author hadn't actually said what prompted her to write this story, or at least, that she had postponed it until after the story, because the note was rather spoilerish. Even so, this managed to be a good mystery case story, because what was let slip didn't actually tie in with the story until the end. The case was unusual, and got more complicated as it went on -- even though I recognised some of the ideas from other places, I hadn't seen them all together in one spot before. It was also refreshing to see a few of the fannish clichés played with (even though that wasn't a major part of it).
