What I Read Today: “Silver Linings”

I’ve downloaded and read a dozen short stories from Tor.com over the last week. My favorites so far have probably been the two by Charles Stross, whose “Laundry” series (eg, this) and novel Halting State I really, really like. But this one was great, by an author whose name I’ve seen around a lot lately but had never read before.

Silver Linings by Tim Pratt and Thom Tenery.

Cloudmining is a rough business at the best of times, mostly because everyone on the ground wants to kill you, but I had more particular problems…

zerode

is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, cinéaste, and former poet. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.

 

What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
