A collection of short stories and longer works by Joan D Vinge.

The stories are mainly SF but there is one fantasy story about a son of a king who goes through a lot of suffering and pain after the throne is usurped, in order to try to get back his throne, and has to subjugate a storm dragon to help him do so. It is mainly about the relationship between him and a young woman who is servant to the wise woman/witch who helps him. Another story is a follow up to one of Vinge's novels, Psiron, this story being Psiren. Not my favourite of the book, I found it a bit self pitying with lots of wallowing by the characters.

The title story is probably the best and was featured originally in 'Millennial Women', edited by Virginia Kidd, which I read just before this book.

This was a childhood favorite of a friend of mine. I seem to have front-loaded my year with sci-fi so I was not that excited to start this. But the writing is quality, there's good characterization and world-building, and a commentary on politics and colonization. I also read it very much in the context of its time and the mindset of the teen who loved it.

The idea at its heart (psychics all need hella trauma therapy) is pretty interesting, but then it's cluttered up with much too much unrelated plot. Cat is a remarkably passive character, too: I thought he'd finally made a decision of his own in the fight scene at the end, but no, he was actually manipulated into that too. wtf, seriously.

Another very strange decision was to let the question of whether Cat is related to another character just... go unanswered. The only way I can read it is that they both know it's true and really don't want to admit it to themselves? It makes the love triangle something out of a psychoanalytic fever dream. That has to be intentional?! But if it is, why did Vinge let her Freud-in-space crack!fic get so sidetracked with all this nonsense about heists?

Villain is a sinister bisexual sociopath and flirts briefly with the hero while monologuing, so far so 1982. Cat is *such* a twink stereotype however (literally a catboy rentboy) that his shock and horror at being desired by a man and massive crush on a lady are both jarring.

Come to think of it, the vibe Cat gives off is quite [book:Vanyel|28759]. "Oh dear, I just keep getting beaten up, but in a sexy vulnerable subby way." Is there a name for this genre when it's published as a mass market paperback and not as hurt/comfort slashfic? (Vanyel comes 7 years later and turned up to 11, so it's not a completely fair comparison.)

primele 2 treimi, 4/5: curge foarte lejer, lumea e construită destul de complex (deși prezentată naiv, școlăresc), fundalul cultural interesant, însă personajele-s banale și unidimensionale. Ultima treime, 2/5: totul devine un teatru de marionete unde indivizii acționează șablonard și infantil doar pentru că exact așa trebuie ca să i se lege autoarei ițele, iar lungeala fără rost e enormă și plictisitoare. Medie: 3/5 Cum o fi câștigat Hugo? Oare chiar nu au contra-candidat decât porcării?… (lisätietoja)
