An interesting short story from Although a recent story it does remind me of the cyber punk days mixed with Richard Morgans hard hitting science fiction. It is intriguing if a little confusing it feels like there should be more to it but I personally feel this was intentional as if the ambiguity is meant to make you think. So rather than the story being a means to an end it is rather a tool to make you finish the story yourself. So I am torn between it being frustrating and it being inc ...more

A lushly imagined Sf thriller, very evocative and grandly conceptualized. I would have loved this in novel length, still, it suits me just fine as is. A fun, fast paced space opera. High tech gadgetry, exotic locale, cyber-mystery, political machinations. A digital only story well worth reading,

Very cool little futuristic assassin story with a satisfying ending. Well worth the short time investment!

Interesting read.

Another short story

To be honest, I didn't get it. I think I would have to read it again. The tecnology seemed interesting (and wasteful) but I wasn't sure where to find the plot.

Read pile an outline for a much longer novel. I would like to read that novel. This was just cramming too much into too short a space.

So good but very much not McLeod's best.
