A new Ted Chiang story and then a new Aliette de Bodard story - this is a good week! Thanks for the link; I have sent it to my ereader for later on today.

Too laboured, too trying to be interesting, but in the end it's just another orientalist allegory.

de Bodard is definitely someone to watch.

Funny, this particular story reminds me a lot more of something that Yoon Ha Lee would have written rather than Aliette de Bodard.
