Review: 2018.616 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: At heart, this is a love story. To be united with Salati, Sfumto has to die for ver. Despite everything, it manages to have a happy ending.

Con: This was just too weird for me, and the bits of pseudoscience, e.g. “entangled in a way no photons had ever been,” drove me up the wall.
