"NGLND XPX" by Ian Hutson is a very entertaining collection of humorous short stories, some absurd and off the wall, others more satirical and tongue in cheek. The subjects of the stories range from science fiction and futuristic ideas to more traditional British and political themes. As a non-British person living in the UK much of the stories that were rooted in persiflage and caricature of the contemporary Britain were particularly funny for me but even if you do not know who Boris or Blair are, you will be able to appreciate the jokes and ideas behind the stories. Immigration and the future of humanity are some of the more serious subjects, Androids and Zombies are fleshing out the collection of original scenarios and ideas with some very cleverly written puns. This is very enjoyable and a pleasant way to spend a few hours. It is non-offensive and easy to read.
