I reviewed this short story as part of the anthology Robots: The Recent A.I. Full review of that volume at http://coffeecookiesandchilipeppers.b...

Dac Kien designs spaceships, carefully applying the laws of Feng Shui to maximize the harmony of the part biological, part synthetic construct. However, the surrogate mother carrying the specially designed brain for the ship arrives early, putting all her plans in danger.

Much better than the previous one I read. It was emotional in a way I couldn't connect with but the imagery and the ideas were excellent. I really love the ideas and world she's built in this universe, it's so rich.

Read this short story online after reading the Nebula nominated "Shipbirth."

I don't know if this story explained the fictional universe better, with its alternate history and living ships, or if I was more familiar having already read one of the author's stories, but this one flowed better. I still didn't really connect with the characters, but I like the world building. Considering seeking out more of the author's work.
