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

Review: 2018.662 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: XR389F seems to have put one over on the scientist.

Con: The story’s message is extremely heavy handed, and the premise is so dumb it’s painful to read. Some of the dialogue is impossible to believe as well.
