Exciting Review of Cold Words

Today I discovered the following review in Locus magazine, from Gardner Dozois:

"Also good in the October Analog is "Cold Words," by new writer Juliette Wade, a story about a diplomatic mission to an alien planet that's in danger of foundering on the rocks of cultural misunderstandings. Wade does a really good job of creating alien aliens, with their own distinctly non-human psychology and cultural values, and showing how language, the words themselves, can both create barriers and help to tear them down."

I was thrilled to receive good words from such a highly respected reviewer. I have a big smile on my face right now.
