Troika by Alastair Reynolds
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Reading Reynolds is always a treat. This relatively older novella doubles down on the old Soviet Space program and turns it into a paranoiacs dream while simultaneously giving us the Big Dumb Object effect. The attention to detail is superb.
The COMMENTARY, however, sneaks up on you. It's not just a great story. It's a slap in the face for everyone else NOT in the old Soviet Era.
WHERE THE HELL IS OUR SPACE PROGRAMS?
Well, I guess everything changes. It doesn't get better or worse. It just gets STRANGER.
