Red Legacy Reviews
Originally posted here: http://amazingstoriesmag.com/2016/08/...Set in a secret Soviet laboratory in the middle of the Cold War, our protagonist is a female scientist researching cloning and other weird science. The crux of the story are her Sisyphean attempts to save her dying daughter by constantly recloning her every time she dies in an effort to cure whatever defect ends her young life. All of this happens while British spies, American special forces and Russian bureaucrats try to stop her.“Red Legacy” is a good, if sad, story. I certainly can empathize with our main character’s desire to do anything to save her child. The pain of losing your daughter again and again and again would drive anyone off the deep end.I’m just not convinced this is actually an alternate history. Except for references to a different theory of evolution that Soviets have adopted instead of the Darwinist theory we all know, the setting doesn’t seem all that different from our own timeline. So this is more secret history than alternate history, but you still might like it if you want to step into the mind of a tragic, mad scientist.
