There are ever so many ways to conduct a war Only a few of them look like war It s a pretty good techno thriller that would ve been truly good if the characters weren t just placeholders to move the plot and show off some cool cyberpunk technobabble.It really is good, though And for the time investment, worth a read I have no hesitation recommending it. Another of Tor.com s freebie fiction series, Earth Hour is a wonderfully conceived scifi, cyberpunky story set in Australia Very neat Another of Tor.com s freebie fiction series, Earth Hour is a wonderfully conceived scifi, cyberpunky story set in Australia Very neat Very cool little futuristic assassin story with a satisfying ending Well worth the short time investment 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. If geoengineering and technical fixes for global warming work out half so well as in the future envisioned here, I ll be a very happy man. Interesting read. Another Tor.com short storyTo 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. 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, It ended so abruptly, I thought a page was missing Not a good one, at least it was short.
