Lavie Tidhar. Filaments. (Interzone #249, Nov-Dec 2013)

interzone249Another short installment in Tidhar’s ‘Central Station’ series, this time featuring robo-priest R. Brother Patch-It, who is delivering a sermon to his small congregation, pondering the nature of reality, and the consensus needed to create it.

There are cameos from Mama Jones, Kranki and Boris Chong, and a little much information about the mechanics of the Jewish circumcision ritual.

The neatest touches ire the opening sentence of the robotic Lord’s Prayer “Our Maker who art in the zero-point field, hallowed by thy nine billion names..” and reference to Niven’s Louis Wu, nods to SF that Tidhar recently excelled in a recent Analog story.
