Staff Reviews


This novella is absolutely beautiful. Red and Blue are rival agents in the titular "time war": an eternal battle to shape the future to the desires of each of the organizations they belong to. When Blue initiates contact by sending a letter, the two begin a correspondence, taunting, sharing, and ultimately, falling in love with one another. Poetry and prose mingle flawlessly here among numerous sci-fi settings stretched across time, each blending seamlessly into the next. The plot will make you think, the love letters will make you swoon, and did I mention it's gay? Because it's extremely gay.

— Ellis M.
