An interesting short story from Tor.com. Although a recent story it does remind me of the cyber punk days mixed with Richard Morgans hard hitting science fiction.

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 Tor.com digital only story well worth reading,

So good but very much not McLeod's best.

Another Tor.com 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.

It ended so abruptly, I thought a page was missing. Not a good one, at least it was short.
