I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

Laws of Night and Silk

Cover of Laws of Night and Silk.

Short story by Seth Dickinson, who feels like an author who attacks the ever-same problem from varying angles. Made me emotional. Omelas vibes (which is tough, because suddenly the story feels worse, the language too flowery, the gestures hollow, because comparing with le Guin benefits nobody).

This book is part of the 2022 Backlog Incident.
