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

Review: 2016.304 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The concept is pretty funny, and some of the dialogue is delightfully naughty. The heroes do indeed find a way around the tax.

Con: The characters aren’t even named, much less developed, and the story ends in a long infodump.
