Robert Reed. We Don’t Mean To Be… (Fantasy & Science Fiction, Jan/Feb 2014)

fsf040102It’s quite some time since I last read a Reed, who was appearing in F&SF on a regular basis until a year or so ago.

It’s a short story, but that doesn’t stop Reed from writing on a large canvas – a chase of a couple of billion years on a galactic canvas. And as it is often the case with Reed, he leaves the reader to make his mind up just exackerly what is happening.

The bigger picture in the story is the hunting down of the evil that lurks, and whether than can every be a truly successful task, if it can ever be a task that is truly possible.
