Review of “The Game of Rat and Dragon” by Cordwainer Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The concept here is incredible and ridiculous in equal measure, but never to the point it seems like something that couldn’t happen. That being said, the story suffers from what a lot of old SF does, too much, way too much exposition and description, and little care for characters. I just read the story a few hours ago and I do not remember anything about the characters besides their work. Definitely a plot and concept centered work. And a strange one!
