'Traitor' or 'revolutionary.' These labels are two sides of the same coin, just as 'hero' or 'villain' depends on the point of view of the person telling the story. These are obvious concepts when spelled out in clear cut settings. Because of this, how one goes about subverting the norm (as a traitor or revolutionary) is based on what the norm is. What is normal in one society can be, and often is, taboo in another society. This allows tales of subversion to be subtle, blatant, personal, communal, and endless in variation. - From the Foreword by Jennifer Brozek

SF Signal

There is a small jarring moment when an idea-driven story changes gears into an action-driven piece (a change I’m not sure was needed), but it’s still a very good story nonetheless.
