The Man Who Bridged the Mist

The Man Who Bridged the Mist - Kij Johnson This is a quiet, slow story. There's no surprises here--the title gives away the ending from the start. The mist will be bridged, and Kit will be the one to do it. Valo's death was so heavily foreshadowed that I called it from the moment Kit suggested he go to university.

But sometimes it's nice to read a story that's low-conflict, that's about inevitability and acceptance rather than trauma and recovery. I enjoyed the subtle development of the characters and the focus on the human side of engineering. I would read more about these people or this world.
