      For this review, I felt like looking at something a bit different from what I've reviewed in the past. My first love, as far as genre fiction is concerned, has always been sci-fi/fantasy stories, and yet I’ve not read many of the GA offerings in that genre. So, to remedy that I decided to dip into some of the writing of GA’s own Myr.  
      In A Bad Day to be WET, we get to experience a day in the life of one Bill Thomas, a test pilot in the Terran Confederation Spaceforce. Bill is a Jumper, one who can sense “jump points” in space time, and psionically “jump” a ship from one point or another. We meet him in the midst of calibrating the navigation system in a prototype bomber spacecraft. Shortly, he is being called away on a priority mission, flying through a hurricane, and transporting civilians through an active war zone.  
      What I particularly love about this story is that it feels like an episode of an exciting sci-fi tv show. We get taken for a thrilling ride, and it is so much fun to experience. While this is a short story, that is somewhat episodic in nature, Myr still does an amazing job of developing his main character Bill. Be it through his daring flight skills, his forthright banter, or his casual flirtation with a senator’s son, we get a well-defined picture of what he’s like and what he’s about. The best part is that it’s all done through the action and dialogue of the story.
      A Bad Day to be WET feels in every way like it should be part of an ongoing sci-fi tv series. In fact, considering that Myr has written several other shorts set in this same universe, it can certainly be read as such a series.  
      This is a fun, action-packed read. Go check it out, and hopefully you’ll enjoy it as much as I have.
