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

Review: 2018.673 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Clever idea to replace indoctrination and propaganda with direct mental modification. One set to make you ready for war and a different set to bring you home. Except that, for the narrator, it hasn’t worked properly.

Con: Nothing really happens in this story other than that we figure out what’s going on.
