And Then There Were (N-One)
by Sarah Pinsker
What is it about:
When physicist Sarah Pinsker is murdered at SarahCon — an interdimensional convention where everyone is Sarah Pinsker from a different alternate timeline — only insurance investigator Sarah Pinsker can solve the case.
What did I think of it:
After reading Two Truths and a Lie I wanted to try more of Pinsker's work. Jeffe pointed me towards this story that was published in Uncanny Magazine.
And what a cool story!
I loved the strange idea of a convention where the same person, but from different timelines/dimensions get together. It was weird, wonderful, and intriguing. Then there's a murder and one of the many Sarah's is asked to solve the murder.
I had to keep reading to see what was going on and if Sarah could solve the murder. There were small clues I picked up on, and I was trying to guess where the story would lead to. It also raised questions: Who would I be if I did things different at that certain point in my life? How different would my life be if I wouldn't have met that certain person? Would I get along with a Sullivan from a different timeline?
All in all a great read. I'm definitely going to read more by Pinsker.
Why should you read it:
