4.12 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: At 19 pages, I would call this a short story and not a novella, but for those 19 pages, it was packed with a story line that had me hooked. The 'lady astronaut of Mars' is 63 and a colonist on Mars. She yearns to be piloting again in space but recognizes her age restricts her p...

review 1: I still like this series, but I'm afraid this one lost my interest a little more as each of the complicated schemes in it unfolded (first that of the bad guys, then that of the heroes). I felt teased by the Roman glamour tidbits at the beginning and toward the end, and I thought ...

review 1: All I have to say is that Mary Robinette Kowal is BRILLIANT. This story combines history and fantasy so effortlessly that I have to remind myself that glamour isn't real! The language she used transported me to a time of genteel manners and propriety. Her turns of phrase were so ...

review 1: I read the copy that had the first unedited version of the story that eventually was rewritten and sold to Asimov's and then was nominated for a Hugo. I'll admit to only skimming the unedited version of the story. I liked the final version enough that I didn't want to spoil it ...
