REVIEW: “Vegoia” by Patrice Rivara

Review of Patrice Rivara, “Vegoia”, Luna Station Quarterly 46 (2021): Read online. Reviewed by Sara L. Uckelman.

This was a story richly full of entirely foreign tradition and ritual. I really enjoy it when a story can nail the sense of the world being written about is not ours, not just because it is “ours but tweaked” but because it is wholly different. This can be hard to do in a short story; but Rivara does it, and the skill with which this is done makes the ending all the more unexpected!
