“The Story of Kao Yu,” by Peter Beagle.
Short story. Published in Tor.com, December 2016.
Rocket Stack Rank gives this one five stars, calling the story “Beautiful, moving, and thought-provoking”.
Ron Andrea is less impressed: “Well-written and interesting, but there’s no payoff”.
I’d expected to find a little more discussion of a new Peter Beagle story — but then, that’s what we’re here for 🙂
