    One thought on “Silver Linings”

    1. 3.0 stars. QUESTION: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU START WITH A BIZARRE SPIN ON THE CONCEPT OF AND MIX IN PIRATESTOGETHER WITH ROYALTY AND THEN FINISH IT OFF BY TOSSING IN FOR GOOD MEASUREANSWER: You get an original and pretty entertaining short story by Tim Pratt that is available FOR FREE at tor.

    2. Tor shortSometimes a short story is a completely completed thought. Silver Linings was not one of these stories. This felt more like the start of a bigger tale.

    3. Every cloud has a silver lining, and when you take away the silver, you no longer have a cloud—without the ballast of precious metal holding the cloudstuff down, it just flies up into the atmosphere and disappears. And after that, it’s just merciless sun and no shade or rain for the unfortunates who live below.This would be an awesome beginning to a novel. There's some great world building going on here. The MC could be quite amazing as well with more stage to play on. But as a short story? [...]

    4. Well-written short story, implausible but fascinating fantasy concept. Deals with the theme of moral responsibility of government leaders and developers of arms. Pratt could easily expand this story into a full-blown novel if he chose.My fundamental problem with the story is not regarding the craft of Tim Pratt. Rather, my problem is with Tor's attempt, like so many of the Big Six, to pay the mortgage through the sale of every eBook. $2.00 for a short story that was read in minutes? Seriously? A [...]

    5. I loved the premise, of clouds with silver linings, and using the cloudstuff to float airships and cloudminers mining the silver. Such a whimsical notion, but then the story turned a bit more serious and we learned the reason the king was on the run. Great story, I really enjoyed it.

    6. Fascinating story. I'd like to read a full length novel set in this world.Read more at: vampsrus/2011/02/

    7. I liked the make up of this world, how the clouds have actual silver in them that can be mined and sold. I also grew to love the protagonist, although I didn't at first. I'd like to see more of him.

    8. A creative and very well written short story - the imagery is beautiful and the concept is like nothing I've read before.

    9. First I've read from Mr. Pratt, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Very original concept. I hope to one day see this story grow into a series.
