Review: 2019.023 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Ultimately, this is the story of a mother’s love for her son overcoming all barriers placed in its way.

The complication that Brendon insists he’s not trapped in the machine adds some interest.

Con: I still don’t see why she had to come all the way out there. The people running the project should have been able to do the same thing she did. And why did she have to pay her own way out there?
