Review: Stone Mad

Stone Mad - Elizabeth Bear

Same great narrator as Karen Memory, but too short and too straightforward for my tastes. I really do struggle with novella as a length, y'all. 


There are some great scenes in this one, but I definitely wanted more. More gadgets, more dialog between the three strangers she meets at dinner, and far, far more of her trying to build a successful life with her wife.


It put together some pieces that could possibly lead to another story. Or I'm just being optimistic. I'm not even sure.
