Violets on the Tongue, by Nin Harris

★★☆☆☆ Not Recommended

(SF Colony) Eshe looks for purpose on the distant world that humanity teleported to after the Earth was destroyed. (6,054 words; Time: 20m)

"," by (edited by Neil Clarke), appeared in issue 139, published on .

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The setting, a mysterious alien world that everyone has to adapt to and which is filled with mysterious things (like the Grand-Daddy crystal) is interesting.

Con: The fake science is really tedious. For example, we’re told that there are things “not from this dimension,” which sounds like a line from a bad 1960s SF movie. Too many magical things happen with no real rhyme or reason, and the ending is confusing.
