My review of the Hugo nominated short story Turncoat


Sentient ships and normal humans battle it out for survival in the galaxy.

This review covers only the one story I’ve read, TURNCOAT by Steve Rzasa.

4 Stars

Excellent story about Artificial Intelligence in the distant future where humans have advanced to integrating themselves with machines, even to uploading their consciousness and are engaged in a war with other humans who have a differing opinion about being so integrated with machines. I quite enjoyed it. It was fast paced and entertaining. It was rather predictable, but it’s hard to be surprising in a short story when the title gives away the premise.
