The first review of my Clarkesworld novelette “Kora is Life” comes from Victoria Silverwolf at Tangent Online: “This novella holds the reader’s attention from start to finish. The flying scenes are exciting, but the narrator’s struggles with alien culture and the company promoting the engine are equally compelling. The narrative style is clear and vivid, reminding me a bit of Roger Zelazny.”
My novelette “Kora is Life” was just published at Clarkesworld! (It’s listed as a novella but is just a few hundred words over the novelette length limit.) https://clarkesworldmagazine.com/levine_05_22/
