- I thoroughly enjoyed <a href="adamtroycastro.com " target="_blank">Adam-Troy Castro's</a> Tasha's Fail-Safe. I <a href="http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/pe.cgi?24254" target="_blank">like Andrea Cort</a> a lot for a lot of reasons. It's always good to read about her. This is a story from early in her career, right after <a href="https://www.baen.com/with-unclean-hands.html" target="_blank">the business with the Zinn</a>. Here is a quote from Tasha's Fail-Safe in the <a href="http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/pl.cgi?498429" target="_blank">March 2015 Analog</a>--
- "She was too good to make that kind of mistake. She'd walked in and out of war zones. She'd taken lives in order to preserve her own. She knew better."
- If you thought New London was a safe place to work and play, as I did, you are in for a surprise. If you are sure Andrea is going to take care of business while remaining a very damaged, dragonesque-meets-prickly-pear, anti social bitch, as I was, you will not be surprised or disappointed. I don't agree with <a href="http://www.locusmag.com/Reviews/2015/01/lois-tilton-reviews-short-fiction-early-january-5/#an201503" target="_blank"> Lois Tilton's assessment in Locusmag</a>. I found the story and the anticipatory building of its resolution delicious. Did I mention I like Andrea Cort? Maybe as much as Mr. Castro. <a href="http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/ea.cgi?6895" target="_blank">Mr Castro's bibliography can be found on the Internet Speculative Fiction Database </a>.
