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

Pro: It's well-written, humorous, and an easy read. The protagonist is supposed to be a Mary Sue, and that's funny all by itself.

The line about "specialty publishers upset about the distribution of genre awards" was precious.

Con: No dialogue, no action, not clear what the point is.
