REVIEW: “Stealing Through the Stars” by Jenny Wong and Sylvia Santiago

Review of Jenny Wong and Sylvia Santiago, “Stealing Through the Stars”, Luna Station Quarterly 41 (2020): Read online. Reviewed by Sara L. Uckelman.

Cats in space are always a winning combination, and I was much taken by the stowaway kitty on the Veronica Speedwell in this story. The initial set up and characters were intriguing, particularly delivery-girl Nova Dufau and her friend the poet Bis Onalaion. But about a third of the way through, there is an abrupt shift of both scene and character, and another third of the way through an abrupt shift back, and I came away from the entire story feeling somewhat uncertain as to what had happened.
