Lavie Tidhar. The Spontaneous Knotting of an Agitated String. (The Year’s Best Science Fiction, 28th Annual Collection.)

Originally in : Fantasy Magazine, May 2010.

Still online, and it’s quite short, so read it.

Whilst there is a technological element which brings it into SF, it’s more of a story I’d see Strahan or Horton collecting on the fantasy side of their SF&F anthologies, rather than Dozois putting in his purely SF collection. A little morsel, perhaps an intra-course palate cleanser, between the meatier stories in this volume, Reed’s ‘History of Terraforming’ and Steele’s ‘Emperor of Mars’, betwixt it sits.
