Very well told, and altogether a pleasure to read.
An interesting conceit, but the story whizzes through quickly.
There was stuff I *really* did like – gender fluidity, non-CIS sexuality and flirting, but the undercover spy thing and the generally light tone of the story didn’t work for me.
The story moves through the gears smoothly, starting as a traditional ship politics story and ramping us the tension and the scale and scope of the story nicely.
A good read, although if you’d asked me after reading it what the theme of the anthology was from which it was taken, ‘Asian SF and Fantasy’ would have been a long, long way down the list of suggestions.
Only the third story by Wise that I’ve read, and like the previous two it’s a good one.
The setting is a doozy.
An interesting WhoDunnit – not sure if there has been a DidIDoIt before?
Only the second story I’ve read by Clark, and they have both impressed.
A reasonable story although not a standout for me.
An excellent story from Das – go follow the link and read it.
There are some great descriptions of alien worlds, and an interesting conclusion, but the story didn’t quite rise to the level of some of Benford’s work.
One element of the story just a little too close to Andy Weir’s ‘The Martian’ for my liking, but otherwise well done.
I know I have a long-standing issue with many Analog stories, but I wasn’t particularly taken with this story, before finding out where it was published.
A generation starship story, which are few and far between these days.
A good balance of space exploration science, AI musings, global climate change/disaster and societal impacts, and with a non-western setting.
There’s depth and warmth in the story, which makes it well worth the read and inclusion in this volume.
It’s a neat story, Kress as ever, handling the characters well.
