In the same setting as my series about life on Venus from two years ago, a few posts about life on the colony-world of Guerra.
Part 1 up:

Not that this will be big blockbuster news it seems, but I forgot to say that

This one isn't quite a blockbuster, no, but it should be! finally got around to reading this. I must say man, it was great. I i found myself turned off by venus, and your aliens struck me as competent but not fascinating, but as for Guerra, I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the bit about family structure and clothing. I'd have liked a bit more on economics and transportation, though, like... we're talking a planet that with a real paucity of good terrain where people live in low density cities, that has got to have its fair share of problems with logistics, transportation and whatnot: i get the feeling there are trains and planes and all of it, but airports sound difficult in what is basically rocky and scarce terrain. and how does this great distance living, especially for the folks that spend part of their lives out in the farms, affect life?

There's, of course, a lot I'd have liked to read: conflicts, crime, the particular forms of corruption emerging and their extent, the lives of richer and poorer people, what city life is, where most everyone except the wives of the well off seem to live, technology, but that's more a merit than a fault of the piece.

The world feels plausible, and the description is lifelike: i found myself producing images and scenes from life in such a world in my mind, all to the mental tune of those melancholy songs you hear scottish women sing in hour long youtube vids that feature hills planted with barley in the video track. I think can understand the aesthetic you were going for, but some things give me a bit of fridge logic though: conservative and campechano as the planet might be on account of culture and history and whatnot, surely very advanced technology makes its way and transforms life somehow: mass media, smartphones, advanced manufacturing, healthcare, terraforming, I don't know... Not all scifi needs to be *about* tech, of course, but one expects some life-changing piece of technology every 600 years.

Only other thing i can think of is that it would have been nice if the religion and lifestance paragraph might have had more hyperlinks, for reasons transparent.

Count me a fan of Guerra... guys, i get that three sal blog posts elsewhere hosted can seem a bit daunting but give this one a try. 8/10 would [and did] read again.
