What good does it do to be valuable, if nobody values you?

Well, that was just badass. ( )

Beautiful, beautiful writing. Absolutely stunning and lyrical in the best way. ( )

This '17 nom for the Hugos started out in a way that made me worry, just a bit, that it might not have the right SF or F twist to it that I was hoping for, appearing more like a love/hate letter to NYC, but, indeed, I should never worry.

This is Jemisin, after all.

It quickly became something reminiscent of pieces of [b:Railsea|12392681|Railsea|China Miéville|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1321409808s/12392681.jpg|17373771] with the tagging and the birth-pains of a city as it comes alive, gets consciousness, rises up with soul. What's more, it really does rise up with eldritch horrors and deep confidences, becoming a wild ride of fantasy and pure NYC flair... that is, if you're interested in being one of the hungry in the city and the flare is the spotlight of a cop car's spotlight. :)

I like the wild rides. I always have. And this story fits that fantastic bill. I'll even forgive it for hopping across the continent to give the angels a shot, too. :)

This is a worthy story, I think! :)

A stand alone story about the birth of New York City as a living, breathing entity. The story is told by a homeless man who acts as midwife to the city, protecting it and singing it's song as it is birthed.
Very fast paced story. Also a little weird. Recommended. ( )

Fantastic writing, evocative and magical. New York comes to life in her words, in her images and, most of all, in the nameless protagonist. It's fear and ignorance and beauty and stubbornness.
