On Adam_Troy Castro's Tasha’s Fail-Safe March 2015 in Analog


Cover art for   March 2015  Analog
 under fair use I thoroughly enjoyed Adam-Troy Castro's Tasha's Fail-Safe. I like Andrea Cort 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 the business with the Zinn. Here is a quote from Tasha's Fail-Safe in the March 2015 Analog--
"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 Lois Tilton's assessment in Locusmag. 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. Mr Castro's bibliography can be found on the Internet Speculative Fiction Database .
