Having just finished reading and reviewing Ghost Fleet I was pleasantly surprised to read this story hinting at the first contact between Tlartox and Humans. More please.

Review by: Shoobydoo on Jan. 20, 2011 :
I really enjoyed this! This story wouldn't be out of place in a published magazine. The writing style was a bit overly formal, but I felt that it accentuated the alien narrator. The ending, too, was less than what a human would hope for but still so true to the narrator's culture that it was satisfying nonetheless. It would have been nice if a little more time was spent on the relationship between Krin and the human, so as to make the ending have more impact. A few sentences could stand to be edited to clarity here and there, but to be honest if I were to run out and purchase Analogue today and find this story between it's covers, I would be quite satisfied.
