    Review of Bannerless

    I had forgotten that I had downloaded this novel a while back but recently ended up reading another short story from this same world in Lightspeed Magazine. The short stories only gave a hint to the world that Vaughn is still clearly developing. This is a post apocalyptic story that takes some of the tropes (having children, smaller villages, etc) and infuses them with new life. With communities being so small, survival depends on not just rules but a willingness to see one's self as part of a much larger hold. People are still people; animosity ends in tragedy and yet, folks do try to do good. Contrasting Enid's present and past made the mystery at the heart of the story even more poignant. Definitely a book and world I'd come back to again just to see what I missed.

    Misleading Writeup, Excellent Book

    The writeup makes this sound like a Very Dramatic Book where Enid discovers the Horrible Truth about Her Perfect Society and Must Expose The Truth. The writeup lies. This is a cozy sf mystery with lots of amiable society-building, set in a post-us society that has done pretty well for itself but still has problems, and humans being humans, sometimes those problems end with a lot of guilty faces and a dead body. 100% more up my alley than Perfect Society Exposed and recommended for others who like a slow-build murder mystery with a heaping helping of anthropology.
