Bits On ‘On The Acquisition of Phoenix Eggs (Variant)’

Let me tell you why I dig this story.  Great idea, well-presented — sure, sure. But the hook for me was the relationship between the stuck-up protagonist and her even stucker-up compatriots. They’re very clever and not evil in any way, so they’re likeable enough, but just getting them in a room together is enough to get the crinkling of conflict going. People who get along just aren’t as much fun to watch.
