Vainglory — Alastair Reynolds

Vainglory -- Alastair ReynoldsAvailable in the collection, Beyond the Aquila Rift and the anthology Edge of Infinity.

In the future, when we have space travel all over the solar system, there might be some sculptors who decide to carve asteroids and other things in space and leave them floating around as works of art for other space travellers to look upon.

This story involves one such artist and probably the greatest work of a rock carver that ever was, or maybe will ever be: and do they want the fame/infamy due them because of it.

Super good, Alastair’s imagination at its best.   I really enjoyed this wonderful idea of future artists.

Next up from Alastair is Trauma Pod.

Bye for now.
