Reviews of speculative fiction, YA, middle grade, and graphic novels, along with stray thoughts, links, and pictures.
This may be my favorite installation in the Expanse short fiction published so far. The protagonist is interesting and the alien world is sufficiently weird. I do hope this ties into one of the upcoming books.
I'm of two minds about the ending. On the one hand, fuck yeah, but on the other, it felt rather abrupt. Like we had only just gotten going when suddenly we stop. That isn't even a real criticism from me, though. See every review of a novella I have and you'll see me make a similar complaint time and time again.
