The Tip of the Tongue, by Felicia Davin

Lightspeed Magazine, June 2015; 6,000 words
Rating: 3, Good, ordinary, story

The government has taken away everyone's ability to read, but Alice misses her books and wants to do something about it.

This story is NOT available for free online; you have to buy the issue to read it.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

We found the story gripping, with lots of tension. We cheered Alice's success, and the discovery at the end that they could make words in cloth with thread was satisfying.

Alice meets too little resistance, and she pays no price for her success.
