Read full description of the books:
Despite some recent controversy, I decided to give this story a chance since I like science fiction short stories, particularly when they're free. The setting in this story is a future New York City, where theater has evolved to include audience participation. (Otherwise, there's not really much at all that's sci fi about it.) This particular play, "Sleep Walking," is hanging on by its fingernails, with the cast and staff hoping something will happen to make it a hit. Umm--that's about it. It's moody and atmospheric, but kind of disjointed and confusing. When I finished it, I felt like I'd been wandering around aimlessly for 30 minutes, like one of the audience participants in the play.
It's not terrible, but I wish I'd spent that half hour doing something else, like petting the cat or taking a nap.
Also: what is terrible is the proofreading. Shouldn't Tor do a better job with stories it publishes on its website?
