The Tea Master and the Detective by Aliette de Bodard is a nie short scifi novella in a world where different sorts of teas can have a profound impact on how the human brain works, there is deep space that behaves entirely different from normal space, and we have sentient ships.

I can’t really give you an objective review (even less than usually, I mean) because I’m a sucker for sentient space ships. These ones are very well done, I felt, and the duo of the Tea Master and the Detective worked very well. And if it feels like Sherlock Holmes coupled with an Ann Leckie world – so what? I would’ve read and enjoyed a full novel of this instead of just a novella (though it was very well-paced).
