The End of the Century Club

Time Warp was the second book of Ed “Ilya” Hillyer’s End of the Century Club stories. The stories were wonderful pieces of gutter level millennial magical realism with a dirty sense of humour. I highly recommend Time Warp and the first part, Countdown, but the reason I’ve been thinking about it today is the 8-page mini story which starts volume 2 and depicts the national rejoicing at the death of a certain politician. It’s chock full of the sort of Bacchanalian excess and joy that the Daily Mail imagines everyone else has been participating in, but also has a character voice their concerns that her legacy is still there.
