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

Review: 2018.153 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The story does a great job of capturing the flavor of pro wrestling tournaments. Manazilla's voice is probably the biggest pleasure of the story.

As the match progresses, Manzanilla gradually fills us in on the sad history of the interaction between humans and the fae. It’s fairly clear that something dramatic is going to happen, and we’re not surprised when it does.

Con: I hate Pro Wrestling. Passionately.
