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

Review: 2018.496 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The resolution leaves the universe with just one god, and one who has at least some love for creation.

Con: : I have very little tolerance for pseudoscientific nonsense like “she pulled the event horizons from a black hole and pressed it into a sphere.” Unfortunately this story was full to the brim with it, which made it a long, painful read for me.
