    1. The sequel to Trainspotting is in the cinemas at the moment so let’s get nostalgic and visit some short fiction from the 90s. Disco Biscuits is a hefty 19 stories published at the height of global rave fame in 1997. Perhaps nothing here is going to blow your mind but there’s also nothing here below par. I thought the best stories were little gems by obscure authors.One I like is "Electrovoodoo" (Michael River). A bunch of kids eat their rave flyers and visit a scary post-human drain world wh [...]

    2. I love reading short story anthologies because you can easily dip in and out of them as you please, and they're ideal for fitting in during breaks when you're doing dissertations. However, Disco Biscuits was a real mixed bag of a few hits and a lot of misses for me.Compiled to capture the infamous 80's rave culture of ecstasy and warehouse parties, Disco Biscuits brings together a whole host of contemporary authors and presents the reader with 19 short stories about hedonism, sex, drugs and lots [...]

    3. This is a collection of short stories by different authors about the club/drug scene of the late 80s/early 90s. Most of the authors are British and so the majority of the stories take place in Britain. The stories were rather hit or miss, and looking back it seems they were more miss than hit. I don't know that it is a good idea to compile a bunch of stories about the same topic because a lot of the stories are very similar. I think I liked more of the earlier stories in the book, but that could [...]

    4. I guess being a teen in the end-90s -old enough to be drawn to the rave scene but not old enough to actually make it there in its peak- gives this one a certain ragged majesty. Now, some of the stories do read a bit dated but my first time with this book was when I was a shy teen, dreaming of the prince in the FROND hoodie and the trainers with the neon-yellow shoelaces, so there you have it.

    5. ACIEEEEEEEEEED!!!!!!!!!Actually, though, the stories were written in '95-96, and chronicle the loss of the '88 magic to commercialism and marketing, disillusionment after long-term heavy drug use, and the hypocritical nature of dance culture in general. But, I mean, still, lots of good tales of E's and whizz and jungle and weekends of mayhem.

    6. This was a great book to take away with me on my trip, as an anthology. It meant I could pick it up and put it down as I pleased. While some stories had me hooked on every word, others had me read the first page and skip the rest entirely. I found it very hit and miss. A bit disappointing overall.

    7. I read this as one of the stories were free with a magazine and I went on to buy the anthology. The stories weren't that good and who really cares about dirty drug taking?!
