..truth be told, I was running out of steam towards the end, as Reed does takes the reader, and the characters, a long way (and back),
Another in Reed’s ‘Great Ship’ series, with two stories meshing against a very big backdrop.
A clever, understated story from Reed, that looks at those in our society who aren’t quite what they seem. Just who is the alien amongst us? And who is to decide?
A fairly bleak set up, with brain injury, bereavement, rape, HIV, climate change, and economic disaster, but the story, a good one, manages to end on a positive note.
A proper SF story by Robert Reed. A ‘Great Ship’ story by Robert Reed. A ‘Great Ship’ story by Robert Reed featuring Quee Lee and Perri!
Excellent short story (read it now!).
Short, dark look at politics, in a near-future in which a ‘voice of reason’ might appear to be able to head off the catastrophe into which the world appears to be heading.
The works of an author, long relegated to his past, find a new, robotic audience.
A complex story which doesn’t go for an obvious happy ending, and it’s one of Reed’s best for some time.
Reed on top form, and a shoo-in for a couple of next year’s Year’s Bests.
