“Una interesante historia sobre un agente de Jamaicano que viaja a través de el territorio de los Estados Unidos en una realidad alterna, no es mala la idea. Nos sitúa desde el principio en el conflicto, da tensiones de lo que pasó y pasará, pero sin mayor detalle. Es una novela muy corta, apenas 133 páginas de historia. Lo cual juega en su contra. El universo que crea es interesante pero se toca superficialmente, se tocan temas de familia, pertenencia, distintos roles y diferencias sociales, pero claro cae en el clásico nosotros sólo hemos sufrido por años, hombre blanco malo, que aunque se basa en una realidad histórica, no deja de ser ya muy desgastado y pierde oportunidad de presentar más cosas. Esperaba más, no me decepciona pero tampoco me siento del todo satisfecho, igual un par se historias breves para expandir un poco más la idea o algunos personajes no estaría mal, quiso abarcar demasiado el autor en tan poco espacio, lo cual resultó contraproducente.”
“Ok, so this awesome. It's an alternate history that is jarring and yet cleverly familiar enough to allow us to stay grounded, all centered around a wonderful MC with a wonderful voice. The world also features impressively detailed steampunk technology, particularly given how short the novella is. It actually reminds me a bit of Nisi Shawl's remarkable Everfair -- while Shawl's work is novel more developed and digs deeper, both works display a great confidence in their words and settings, and both are ambitious enough to tear apart a world we know and posit an alternative one in which (gasp) white people don't run everything.”
