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

Review: 2018.576 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: : The road man’s logic is reasonable, if reprehensible. Mass adoption of Level 5 autonomous vehicles probably would put the asphalt companies in a bind. There’s a horrible logic to Left Turn as well, and their strategy of beating the self-driving cars is something I could imagine happening all by itself.

Con: It’s a very dark story that offers no hope at all.
