      Originally posted at: thebookplank/2015I missed a lot of good short fiction during my vacation. Hold-Time Violations is definitely one of them. John Chu is well known for his short fiction stories. One of his stories even won him the Hugo Award for Short Stories back in 2014. What drew me to Hold-Time Violations was the challenging and promising synopsis. I like my science fiction with a challenge and definite thought behind it and this is precisely what John Chu delivers. Hold-Time Violations s [...]

      Review first posted on My Blog.Ellie lives in a world where she is what is known as a builder, one who can work within the skunkworks that create all the known universes. There are pipes and machines underneath that control the physics of each universe but sometimes things go out of whack and a builder is sent in to fix things. Today Ellie is just going to visit her mom until her sister sends her to fix the physics of the skunkworks instead (and instead of sending someone to kill her which is ac [...]

      Interesting world building concepts, and plot. In the book, each universe has skunkworks that generate the universe within it, making this multiverse an infinite set of matryoshka dolls. The skunkworks that generate this universe have become faulty, and the physical constants suddenly aren't. In order to fix the skunkworks, to make physics self-consistent again, and to make the world work as it’s supposed to, Ellie will have to remember everything her mother has taught her. While I liked the e [...]

      Physics violations up at the multiverse skunkworks. Hot stuff. Cool illo, too.Sample:"The skunkworks pre-date humanity and no human had ever made any changes to this section. Any actual mismatch in construction should have been found eons ago. Still, she checks, hoping that’s what the problem is. The alternatives are all far worse." . . .The skunkworks match the blueprint in construction. They don’t match the blueprint in function, though.“Fuck me.” She slams a foot against the sphere. .

      The idea of compound universes/skunkworlds build of pipes that transport data is an intriguing part of the story. Reminded me a bit Railsea. But the plot did not work for me, in particular, food metaphor in the middle of the story felt out of place.

      While the individual pieces of this story are interesting (the world of pipes and nested universes, the conflict with isolationists, the main character), they just didn't come together in a satisfying way for me.

      Physics-fixing as a family business; FBP recast as a domestic fable, when to be honest FBP already had quite enough family stuff for me. But the final twist has a certain neat power.

    8. Zachariah Carlson on said:

      I love the idea that there are actual pipeworks holding the universes' physics in place, and that they can break down or be sabotaged.

      A fascinating, mind-bending, twist on the old multiverse tale. With a heart-wrenching twist. But I'm so angry with Ellie's sister

      I am very interested to read more stories from this world. It sounds so interesting!

      Chu at his mind-blowing best. Each universe contains the skunkworks for generating the one below (universes nested like Russian dolls). When something goes wrong, someone has to go in and fix it.
