5.0 out of 5 stars a nice quick read
This short story is just the thing if you have some time on your hands, several of the chemicals that are in this story are real and act exactly as described in the story. What a great way to weave real and unreal things together.

3.0 out of 5 stars good quick hit of Cold War sci- fi
Nice quick read, ideal for a tube journey. Leaves you with some interesting thoughts.
Super geeky helps if you are a chemist. Either made up or possibly true ;-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Blame the USA!!, 2 Sep 2013

This review is from: A Tall Tail: A Tor.Com Original (Kindle Edition)
Surprised this hasn't become an urban legend like the US gov being behind 9/11.A brilliant read. And who knows, it may be true!!!!! (Bearing in mind Pratchett's observation about exclamation marks...).

Fact and fiction cleverly woven into a seamless tale, as Charlie is wont to do so well. Wish he'd do more of "A Colder War" type tales though.

The author spins a marvelous tale of good physics and cold-war era deception. Very much worth reading, and thinking about.

An interesting anecdote from one of my favourite authors. On first reading didn't rate it that highly, but it has popped back into my head several times since then, so it must have made an impression.
