Theaker's Quarterly Fiction #53 contains three stories. In "Restitution" Mitchell Edgeworth takes us back to the Black Swan, its crew double-crossed by the thief Nisha. In "Dodge Sidestep's (and Martin's) Final Dastardly Plan" regular TQF cover artist Howard Watts completes his absurdist musical trilogy. And "Rathfern's Menagerie" is a bodyswapping science fantasy from Allen Ashley. The issue also contains fifty pages of reviews by Jacob Edwards, Douglas Ogurek and Stephen Theaker.
