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

Review: 2015.001 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The story is well-written, exciting at places, and has a moderately satisfying ending.

Con: A great deal of the material here is of no interest if you didn't read the earlier stories. The final victory over the "others" seems a little too facile, given the difficulties up to that point.
