Starting this month, Rocket Stack Rank will take an indefinite break from writing reviews. We'll still produce monthly lists of stories that you can flag and rate and find other reviews, and we'll continue to highlight recommendations from other sources, but we'll stop rating stories ourselves, at least for awhile.

  5. Hearts in the Hard Ground by G. V Anderson. TOR September 2020.

    I give this 4 stars and it is well worth reading for award purposes.

    It is a sad story and as a ghost story is mildly horror too, but finishes on a promising note.
