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

Review: 2018.656 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: This tiny little story does a decent job of conveying the pain of losing someone.

Con: It’s so heavy with symbolism, I’m not really sure what it’s trying to say. I can’t rule out the possibility that it’s really about someone here on Earth in our time talking about his brother’s death from a random gunshot and that it has nothing to do with the moon at all.
