"The Liars," Analog Magazine October 2012
  • A story from the Allied Systems Universe
  • Colleen Chen at Tangent Online says, There are a couple of common themes in this story—the destruction of a culture by tourism, and the issue of how to respect the culture of an alien world even if one judges it to be wrong. These themes are woven into a unique and complex story that is visual and beautiful, tense and highly dimensioned. I love the world of the Poik that Wade has created, with all its social and linguistic details.
