Meet the Author

Daughter of two Cuban political exiles, M.C.A. Hogarth was born a foreigner in the American melting pot and has had a fascination for the gaps in cultures and the bridges that span them ever since. She has been many things—-web database architect, product manager, technical writer and massage therapist—-but is currently a full-time parent, artist, writer and anthropologist to aliens, both human and otherwise.

Her fiction has variously been recommended for a Nebula, a finalist for the Spectrum, placed on the secondary Tiptree reading list and chosen for two best-of anthologies; her art has appeared in RPGs, magazines and on book covers.

    Great intro to a potential series

    I found this story when browsing among the free books to get a start to my e-library. In general, I prefer to read full-length novels, rather than short stories, however to compare this to the movie industry, what I usually read are the movies, and this story came across as a single tv episode - on it's own it's ok, but I definitely want to see the rest of the series.

    There is enough detail to give you a good feel about each of the characters, but Hogarth did a good job of not putting in so much detail that you are distracted from the rest of the story.

    more from this reviewer

    Good intro story! Abrupt ending.

    Despite me giving only 3 stars for this one, this is actually a *good* introduction to the universe -- the viewpoint character is a human, and seeing his Pelted crewmembers through his eyes provides some of the context that the others may lack.

    There's a plot, tension... There's an exciting twist. There's some universe introduction and building. It's told smoothly, without huge infodumps. I'm curling up and anticipating something nice and juicy with the buildup... And it stops, and I fall splat on my face and wail, "But... Where's the REST of it?!?!"

    If there is later a sequel, this would probably pull up to four stars, easy, and likely even a full five. On its own, it rings a little hollow as a story.

    But it's a freebie, and it's a good introduction to the universe of the Pelted if you haven't read the others, and it fills out some universe-building and technology if you *have* read the others, so it's perfectly worthwhile to pick up!

    A Solid Short Story

    There's not a ton here, it's really just a teaser, but the characters and basic universe hint at enough interesting things to be worthwhile.

    Great intro into the world, I would like the series

    Good character build up but not over done for a short story. You get a peek into the situation of the universe. I didnt see a continuation of this world anywhete, and that is a shame

    Interesting but wanting

    I didn't realize that this was a short story when I purchased it. There is no back-story or explanations so you walk into a universe cold with no idea how you got there. Additionally there is no mention of other/continuing stories. It is hard to recommend something when you don't know where it is going or where it has been.
