Book Review: “When We Were Starless” by Simone Heller

(Four Star)

“We were nomads, and we didn’t get to keep things. Not even dreams.”

Excellent and engaging tale of non-humans scavenging and trying to understand human artifacts, long after the humans are gone. Well developed point-of-view character who takes the reader along on her scouting.

“Beyond the darkness, worlds are waiting.”

2019 Hugo Novelette Award finalist. (Clarkesworld Magazine cover has no relation to story.)

“There will always be need of us who find new ways to cross the blackness and dream of the worlds beyond.”
