2016 Story 52

Today's story continues the run of Clockwork Phoenix 5, edited by Mike Allen:

52. TWO BRIGHT VENUSES by Alex Dally MacFarlane.  I will not pretend that I understood the science behind the story. But the concept (of a Superior Venus and an Inferior Venus both existing, and thus needed two of the same person -- a Superior Irunn and an Inferior Irunn -- to explore them) pulled me in right away. The language here is lyrical, poetic, and full of big concepts that are still accessible. MacFarlane's two Irunns to me represent the Social vs the Interior of every person, and the story made me think of how to be whole, we must balance these two parts.
