    One thought on “Nighttime in Caeli-Amur”

    1. Karen keeps telling me that I should read the Tor shorts. I've given two a shot now and both of them have left me scratching my head and feeling like I was missing something.Maybe I'm just really bad at picking out which ones would be good fits for me. I picked this one because of its cover. The cover looks good, right? And there is a clockwork mechanical bird in it, but the bird wasn't enough.The story kind of reminded me of Kafka's “The Judgment”, but I think it might have just been my own [...]

      d, is for Davidson.3 StarsOlga wanted a bright color. "Nice and cheerful", she said. I love that about her: the way she wants everything to be "lovely" and "lively". But I love it from a distance, like something I am afraid to touch.Set in a future world, I believe, Nighttime in Caeli-Amur revolves around a man who feels lost in his life. He has made choices and done things he doesn’t really believe to keep the status quo Quo or whatever. His marriage is on the rocks because he works too much, [...]

    3. A very good and almost terrifying short story by Rjurik Davidson that you can read for free at this link on Tor's website. Davidson creates an amazing atmosphere with his vibrant descriptions and strikes a perfect balance between background info exposition and plot in such a story so short. I also really liked the main character of the story, a troubled man who struggles with his own thoughts and indecisions. It almost hit a very personal tone with me. After reading his two really interesting (a [...]

    4. I'm in the middle of reading 'Unwrapped Sky,' Davidson's novel set in his fictional city of Caeli-Amur. I noticed that Tor Books is providing free access to this short story, as a 'teaser,' so thought I'd check it out (since I'm loving the novel.) Here (even more than in the book), Caeli-Amur puts me in mind of Tanith Lee's Paradis - a complex, teeming metropolis full of beauty and evil, poverty and wealth, human foibles and inexplicable hauntings.In this story, the city is merely the lush and a [...]

    5. Deep. The Unwrapped Sky is on my read list for some time, this reading just made me more determined.

    6. A rather oblique steampunk/horror short, heavy on atmosphere and little else. There's some cool stuff here, to be sure, and the author executes angst well, but there's no story here, sadly. Perhaps it would make more sense if I'd read the novels first

    7. Fantastic in every sense of the word. I definitely can't wait to read Unwrapped Sky now!Thanks to Tor for offering this story.

    8. This really wasn't what I expected, and ended up being much duller than the summary described. There was an air of suspense, but I was overplayed, pushing the story along rather than allowing it to take its own course. I wish there was a bit more dialogue as well, because the descriptions didn't do much to engage my interest. I didn't develop feelings towards the characters, or feel myself encompassed by the story's world. It was a read that occurred from the side without much cre for what was w [...]
