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

Review: 2018.691 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The further you read, the creepier it gets.

Con: Nothing actually happens, and the cooking instructions are really dull.

This seems to reference some Polish legend about women who split in half, leave their hearts behind, link up with other half-women, and hunt for (presumably human) prey. But I can’t find anything about it. Does anyone recognize this?
