I really enjoyed this book! I'm a fan of Elizabeth Bear's, even thought sometimes I think her writing is too smart for me to actually get. *LOL* I had been looking forward to reading Karen Memory since it was published and finally, it went on sale and I could afford the ebook. All I knew about i...

It started off well, but I didn't like this one that much. It rescued itself from a single star with a plot twist that I was hoping for the identity of the murderer (not much of a twist, but the first "suspect" would have been a really lame culprit).Peeves and comments:I know now that it's supposed...

I first heard about this book at file 770 and somebody mentioned that it is a good candidate for next year Hugo nominations. Eh - not in my opinion.

A rollicking steampunk Wild West adventure featuring authentically diverse characters, including BASS REEVES, aka the coolest person ever. I thoroughly enjoyed this one, and Karen’s voice. It’s funny and sad and serious all at the same time. I thought the mystery aspect was fairly well done, althoug...

By now you've probably read more than a few gushing, over-the-top, positive reviews of Karen Memory. I got sucked in by the praise myself, to the point where I rather boldly harassed the local Chapters for not carrying a copy, but I'm pleased to declare the praise warranted.Elizabeth Bear has crafte...

Promising set of characters but there was nothing happening. I just didn't care about the story (because there was none).
