by Christopher Daly
'Scuse me, but anybody see my planet? I know I left it lying around here somewhere.... "Inconsolable" is one of those rare works of speculative fiction that combines elements of pure fantasy with hard scifi and literary narrative to create a moving, ethereal, bittersweet experience. LeGuin, Vonnegut, Bradbury. Like that. Christopher Daly has the chops, and we think he's a writer to watch.
