Deja Vu all over again. I reviewed this on Fine Stories, because that's where I read it. To paraphrase that review, it's by Banadin. Its well worth reading. It looks like there is going to be at least one sequel, so the ending is more like a coming attraction than a winding up of the story. If you are too busy to read this one you could wait until the sequel comes out, maybe in a couple of years.
If you are going to live a lot longer and have much more important stuff to do now, postponing reading this story is conceivable, but I strongly suggest you read it now. Maybe over at Fine Stories, then it won't count against your 16 SOL stories a day.
I give it a nine for plot. Lots of things happen and at least I had no idea what was going to happen next. That's like an A plus. The technical and appeal numbers are eights, or A grades. The appeal probably should be a little higher, like a nine, but the ending gave me an aw shucks moment when I learned there will be more, maybe much more, much later. On a happy note, the next project up on Banadin's drawing board is more of the Richard Jackson Saga. Fridays are looking better and better.
