F&SF Mini-Review: Envoy Extraordinary

The second story in the issue was Envoy Extraordinary, by Albert E. Cowdrey. This darkly comedic story was more of a slice of life of a future diplomat from a much degraded, indulgent, and morally vacuous, Earth. The piece provided a brief exploration of a setting; the characters were more unlikable inhabitants than fleshed-out characters.

That said; the setting was fairly interesting. I didn’t mind visiting for the term of the story, but I’m not sure I would enjoy a longer stay.
