“When faced with a fight you cannot win, you can never predict what you will do.”
A gripping novella well-conceived and well-told. Stands out from the cloud of mediocrity. Combines elements of a real, little known Earth people and culture with an imaginative reach unique in today’s science fiction/fantasy literature.
Compact, but fully formed.
Unfortunate similarity between this story’s goal Oomza and Ozma.
“You never ask why.”
