Brought to you by OBS reviewer Sammy Just the synopsis and title grabbed me, then when I saw it’s a short with only nine pages and that it had gotten a great review, I had to read it for myself. Let me first state the obvious, it’s a super fast read! But, wow the author really got this short story right. The ideas, thoughts and “Animal Planet” descriptions were perfectly balanced. It takes a lot of skill to make a story this compact feel complete and the author did that. I highly recommend this short story for anyone that enjoys well written, sci-fi with interesting questions that make you think about how things could be. I will definitely be checking out some of the other stories Pat Murphy has written. This review and more at openbooksociety dot com
