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

Review: 2019.030 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: This is a vignette, so, by design, there is no story here; it merely shows us a slice of life in a city of the future. As such, it’s a very believable future.

Con: The future is so believable that the city isn’t very interesting, nor is the protagonist.
