    One thought on “This Peaceful State of War”

    1. This is an excellent SF short We see the futility of trying to bring a religion to the other planets that carry life The lifecycle of alien species in their biome And a female human envoy struggling against gravity, poisonous air and burning rain I thought the brief adult scene unnecessary but otherwise it s well done This is like a very short version of Mary Gentle s Ancient Light mixed with Delaney s Aye, And Gomorrah Not for the young or tender I would add I ll be reading of Jansen s work I [...]

    2. Nothing was as it seemed.I received this short story as a free download from Patty Jansen, but at the time did not realize that it was not a stand alone publication, and could only be found in this anthology When it was published separately, I purchased it because it was worth a good review on This is an award winning short story and a strong beginning to an impressive career as an author of science fiction and fantasy.It is rich in description, of a fascinating alien environment One humanoid sp [...]

    4. I picked this up a month or two ago and forgot I had it on my Kindle When I finished my last book, and was unsure of what to read next, I saw this sitting there, something I could read in a single setting, and decided now was the time.Bottom line, it s a very good short story, very, very good It s very well thought out, as it s the tale of a government ish person sent to review the outpost on an alien world The outpost is manned by missionaries who are convinced that if we run across aliens who [...]

    5. This story hooked me right from the beginning The setting is a little unusual as is the viewpoint character Although it is a short story there s a surprising richness to the handful of characters that we are introduced to.We re thrust right into the middle of the situation and presented with something that is both emotionally and intellectually compelling And the need to find out exactly what was really going on kept me turning the pages.The aliens are sufficiently not human for their motives to [...]

    6. A government envoy named Miranda Tonkin is sent to a planet called Bianca to report on the state of the planet, the inhabitants and the well being of the Brothers who have been left in charge.The Pari and the Hern are at war, with the Hern continually killing Pari, mutilating and devouring the corpses The Brothers have a large number of Hern in a prison camp, but they are extremely violent, not to be trusted Miranda befriends Brother Copernicus, who seems unhappy with their situation, and tries [...]

    7. An excellent hard SF story about a human mission on an alien world with sentient life I enjoyed the depth of the main character and particularly liked the reveal moment at the end when she worked out what was happening The undercurrent of ethical dilemma should humans be interfering Were they doing harm than good played out well.

    8. What happens when you drop into an alien culture and try to help Can that culture survive the help Patty has put together an excellent short story with interesting lessons for many of our concerns.

    9. I can see why this surprising story won a Writers of the Future award Patty can write She has an incredible imagination She s a delight to read Highly recommended
