ABOUT THIS SHORT STORY


When the Ambassador to the Dylft System—a veteran of the Dylft Wars—receives orders to lead a diplomatic mission to Craznaust, she wonders at the wisdom of accepting the assignment.

 

Still, when she arrives at the controversial Museum of Modern Warfare, she believes herself prepared to face the past and address whatever diplomatic issue she might find there.

 

But nothing could prepare her for what she finds deep within the museum. Something long buried. Something that could change everything she thought she knew about the war.

 

Winner of the 2015 Analog Anlab Award for Best Short Story.

 

“As I always seem to say, another great story from Kristine Kathryn Rusch.”

“I am in awe of an author who is able to distill an entire story down to a single thought. … As Heinlein put it, ‘a great artist… can look at an old woman, portray her exactly as she is…and force the viewer to see the pretty girl she used to be.’”

—Tangent Online
